Lanana Creek Trail Information

The Lanana Creek Trail is now more accessible from the North side of Nacogdoches. Grant funding and volunteer power helped to add another 1.8 miles to the existing 5.1 miles of recreational trail. Sidewalk underpasses were built beneath Main Street for access to the Clint Dempsey Soccer Complex and Austin Street for access to the new trail path. Map of the walking and biking trail.
