Pond Branch Linear Park Trail
Mansfield's newest trail is located in Historic Downtown with the primary trailhead entry at 199 E. Broad St. The trail is approximately half a mile in length and passes under a beautiful tree canopy and right by the creek. Most importantly the trail serves as an easily manageable pedestrian connection for Historic Downtown Mansfield and crosses under Broad St., allowing walkers to easily get from The Backyard down to the rest of the area.
