The original trails, from the trail
head to the Rotary Club Bridge, opened September 20, 2003.
The equestrian parking lot opened on September 18, 2004 for the horse trailers and 4 water/electric
hookups for overnight camping. There is eight 10' x 10' covered pens for horses! Each campsite has two stalls. The
stalls are numbers to correspond with the campsite numbers 86, 87, 88 and 89. Later, a 4 stall barn for day use was added.
Rotary Club of Ennis has taken an interest in this project and has
become our long term partner. As part of their 100 year celebration they have donated the bridge to span Waxahachie Creek
in 2005. More trails were developed on the east side of the creek and are open to ride.
The trail area is on a two thousand acre tract at the northwest end of the developed Waxahachie
Creek Park at Lake Bardwell.
Waxahachie Creek Park is 7/10 of a mile west of the Bardwell Lake bridge on Highway 34 east
of Bardwell and west of Ennis, Texas.
Ennis is 30 minutes south of Dallas, Texas off I-45.
Ennis is less than 30 minutes from Waxahachie, Texas off Highway 287.
