The Rock Island Rail Trail is the principal off-road multi-use path in central Amarillo. It runs for nearly 4 miles along Plains Blvd., extending west from downtown. Plains Blvd. is a busy road, so this won’t win awards for the most bucolic run ever, but it is a good off-road option.
Add-Ons: Toward the western end of the trail, hop up to Medical Center Park, where there’s a pleasant ~1 mile trail around a man-made lake.
- 3.9 miles (6.2 km) one-way
- Anywhere along path. East end: 7th & S. Crockett; West end: Coulter St.
