Cargill Long Park Trail Description

The Cargill Long Park Trail runs for 3 miles through the Texas city of Longview. The trail follows an old rail bed along a wooded corridor among suburban neighborhoods and parks.

The trail is open daily from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. and is lighted between 4th Street and Hollybrook. You'll also find a pavilion, picnic tables, playground, restrooms (between Hughey Drive and Le Duke Boulevard), drinking fountains, benches and exercise stations. 

At the trail's northern endpoint, the trail connects to the Guthrie Trail, which in turn is connected to the Paul G. Boorman Trail. All three of these trails form an excellent 10-mile route that zigzags the city of Longview through a series of greenways and parks.

Parking and Trail Access

There is parking at the trail's northern endpoint (3112 N Fourth St), and at Patterson Park (1313 Hyacinth Dr). 

See TrailLink Map for all parking options and detailed directions.

Cargill Long Park Trail Reviews

Longview’s trails connect!

Longview is listed to have three trails, Cargill, Guthrie and Boorman. This is true BUT all three connect seamlessly!! You can bike from one end to the other making for a 10 mile one way trip or 20 miles round trip! The trails are beautifully landscaped and cared for with benches and workout stations. Highly populated with beautiful cardinals and an occasional bunny rabbit. Green grass beautiful and always mowed length of Boorman trail and Guthrie Trail. Trail is wide concrete on these two. Cargill portion has many more hills, but is also beautiful, but asphalt surface. These trails are so shady and therefore beautiful in the

I loved this trail

There is 3+ miles of this trail not on the map. I ran Cargill Long Park from 4th Street to Judson (1.76 miles) and only found 10’ wide perfect concrete. It wound between neighborhoods, over creeks, and under a bridge. I appreciate the City of Longview providing this trail system. Great place to run, walk, or bike.


The trail is not well kept. I brought my street bike only to dodge holes in the asphalt and then 1 mile in have to turn around because of the gravel that is on the rest of the trail

bumpy unkept worse trail I've ridden

Needs major repair and better intersections


Not for Bikes

This trail is to rough for any bikes other than Mt bikes

Great Trail, but the sinage indicates it is 3 miles long

I discovered this beautiful nearby trail thanks to I agree with the previous review. It is a fairly wide asphalt trail that allows runners, walkers, and bikers to go in both directions and pass by slower travelers with plenty of room to avoid accidents. The trail has plenty of shade trees on both sides which cools the summer Texas heat a bit, although during the summer months I would recommend walking in the mornings or evenings. The signage is very good indicating quarter miles traveled. I started at the Hollybrooke parking area (I have never had a problem finding a parking space) and when I reached the end of the trail at Marshall Ave., the final sign indicated that the trail was a total of 3 miles (not 2.5 as indicated on the TrailLink site). I haven't walked the entire 3 miles yet. I believe the first mileage post leaving from the Hollybrooke parking lot towards Marshal Ave. indicates mile marker 1. I have walked the other direction to the 3/4 mile post. I know that there is another parking area that likely starts at mile 0 and I look forward to starting at that point and discovering the whole 3 mile trail. The City of Longview has plans to connect this trail to others in the city (see the 2007 development plan at I know that the city has been working on adding trails but I don't know what trails have been completed since the 2007 map was issued. I guess I'll just have to explore.

Great neighborhood trail

"I grew up literally in the shadow of this park. It is only a few miles long, but I can't help but love it because it's home. I played there all the time with all the neighborhood kids when it was still just an abandoned railroad right-of-way. We were thrilled when they actually made a path out of it because now we thought we could go anywhere we wanted! (Farther than our Moms probably wanted us roaming, anyway.)

The path is mostly tree-lined, which helps protect you from the hot summer sun. You'll enjoy the intoxicating scent of the tall pine trees. You'll want to watch out for the ""porcupine eggs"" dropped by all the sweet gum trees.

There are well-established neighborhoods on either side, so you do cross several residential streets; however, only a couple of the streets carry much traffic. The park was established over 30 years ago, but is kept in good shape. Enjoy!"
