Parks of Aledo Trails
The POA Trails are a stacked loop trail system of 7 connected trails inside a residential development in the City of Aledo. Located in Parker County about midway between Weatherford and Fort Worth, the approximately 10-mile trail winds through 100+ acres of scenic green space on either side of Bailey Ranch Road.
South of Bailey Ranch Road the existing POA Trails meander through 5 connected trails (Blue, Yellow, Green, Orange and Grey). 40 signs along the trail provide notices and reminders. Each loop has color-coded signage to direct the trail user. Each loop is one-way in a clockwise direction, except for the Blue Loop, which is counterclockwise. A color map of the trails and Rules of the Trail are posted at the Point Vista Drive kiosk adjacent to the Blue Trail entrance.
North of Bailey Ranch Road the POA Bluffs Trail are 2 connected trails (Red and Violet). 60 signs along the trail provide notices and reminders. A color map of the trails and Rules of the Trail are posted at the Jenkins Road kiosk adjacent to the Red Trail entrance. The trail runs counter-clockwise featuring sustained climbs and descents, exposure to steep drops, rock gardens and creeks. Trail users are required to have an elevated level of skill to recreate the trail.
Trail users are required to read the Rules of the Trails before recreating on the trails. It’s a GREAT idea to take a photo of the trail map if this is your first visit to the POA Trails.
There are 3 bailout trails along the Bluffs Red Trail that will direct you back to the Jenkins Road trailhead parking lot.
Please cross Bailey Ranch Road at the Jenkins Road or Highland Avenue crosswalks. The sidewalk along the west side of Bailey Ranch Road is two-way. Please do not jaywalk!
Emergency Medical Technician points are along all the trails. They are noted by a red trail marker in alphabetical order, letter A thru P along the POA Trails and letter AA thru RR along the POA Bluffs Trail. Should you require medical assistance along the trail, call 911. Give the dispatch operator your location (EMT AA, for instance). Aledo Fire/EMS has a KMZ file of the POA Trails and all EMT locations. Follow their instructions. This EMT system is in use at Quanah Hill and the Western Heritage Park Trail.
