The first phase of the Crooked Crane Trail consists of a 1.8 mile double loop, concrete 10 ft. wide path with exercise and play equipment for all ages.

Dickinson Parks and Recreation asks citizens to abide by the following rules when using the trails:

  1. Walkers, joggers and bikers please keep to the right when using the trails.
  2. All dogs must be on a leash.
  3. Be aware of traffic approaching and behind you.
  4. Be aware of intersections and crossings.
  5. Please pick up you and your pet’s litter.

Thank you to the Convention & Visitors Bureau for putting together this short video of the Crooked Crane Trail.

Dickinson Parks & Recreation and the City of Dickinson have begun Phase 2 of the Crooked Crane Recreation Trail.  Phase 1, a 1.8 mile double loop concrete surface trail with exercise and playground features was completed in 2016.  Phase 2 is a 6 foot wide mowed grass recreational trail from the south side boat ramp west to the Stransky Road bridge and continuing east back to the trap club.  Trail heads are placed throughout the trail with parking, signage and trail access.  This section of the trail is approximately 9.6 miles and runs through the Wildlife Management Area along the south side of Patterson Lake Recreation Area.
