Lake Mineral Wells State Park is located along Rock Creek, a large tributary of the Brazos River. This area was an early home to several Native American tribes including the Comanche. In 1922, Lake Mineral Wells was completed as a water supply for the city of Mineral Wells. By 1975, the lake was turned over to Texas Parks and Wildlife for recreational use and opened as a state park in 1981. Activities include camping, water recreation, hiking, rock climbing, mountain biking, and horseback riding (visitors must provide their own horses). The 20-mile Trailway provides opportunities for hikers, bicyclists, and equestrians. Located on a railroad bed, the grades are very flat and curves are very gentle, making it popular for trail users of all ages and abilities. Note: The Trailway may be closed during wet weather - please check with the park.
