The Oxford Trail is a 1.2 mile, 8-foot-wide, concrete trail in the City of Oxford. We held a ribbon-cutting for the first segment on July 4, 2005 and added additional sections in 2007 and 2010. Developed by Newton Trails in partnership with the City of Oxford and Oxford College, the trail runs along wooded, undeveloped road rights of way behind the campus and along picturesque Turkey Creek. The trail features benches, a kiosk with information about native plants and animals, both forest and meadow habitats, and a large deck under the tree canopy behind Old Church that is perfect for picnics, outdoor education, and quiet reflection. The trail runs north to south between Stone Street and W. Soule Street, with a spur connecting to Old Church, which is located on Wesley Street.
Future plans for Oxford include connecting the town to Covington via a pedestrian bridge over I-20 and developing a loop trail through the town.
Parking and Access
Access points are available at each road crossing. Visitors can park at the trail crossing on W. Clark St, at historic Old Church on Wesley Street, or leave their cars at Oxford City Hall (110 W Clark St) and walk two blocks east to access the trail.
