Lake Murray Hike & BBQ

This 6 mile trail is within Mission Trails Regional Park and goes around Lake Murray (out and back). The Lake is a popular destination open seven days a week for fishing, boating, walking, jogging, cycling, and picnicking. There are 64 picnic tables and 10 barbecues along the lake. Boats are available to rent on a first-come-first-served basis at the Concession stand. You can also purchase fishing licenses here. There are bathrooms by the marina. Dogs must be at least 50 feet from the water and are not allowed on boats.

Meet Up Location: Plenty of parking on Ridgemoor Dr.  

Accessibility: There are at least 11 designated accessible spaces in the paved parking lot off of Kiowa Drive at the south end of the trail. All of them are van-accessible with striped access aisles. The trail surface is paved asphalt and smooth. It is typically at least 8 feet wide. There is a painted dividing line along most of the trail which reduces the width. The whole trail is estimated to be in the gentle (3% or less) grade category. This trail will likely be navigable for most wheelchairs/mobility equipment or stroller users. There are benches and picnic tables along the route for resting. The bathrooms are wheelchair accessible.

Bring: Face mask, Ten Essentials, water (2 to 3 liters recommended), snacks, sun protection, layered clothing, hiking poles may be helpful. Carry Emergency Contact Information. Sturdy hiking footwear with good tread and adequate drinking water are required.
