Directions to Buck Creek Trails and the Police Academy

Buck Creek Trails are located in Abilene, TX on FM 2833 (East Lake Road), 1 1/2 miles north of Highway 351.  After you turn north on to FM 2833, you will pass a water treatment plant on your left at about the 1 1/2 mile mark. Approximately 1/2 mile after that, you will cross a bridge and then see the turn-in to the police academy on your right. It has a large blue gate with “Warren Dodson Police Training Center” on it. Look for signs and pennants posted at the academy entrance. If you reach the intersection of FM 2833 and Neas Road, you’ve gone too far north.

This entrance is only for Bent Wheel Bash, and is not the normal daily use gate.

When the actual physical address of the academy, 4557 East Lake Rd., is looked up on Google maps, it takes you to the wrong place (in the nearby lake), so just use these directions instead.
