Has great potential. Excessive flood damage is very prevalent. You can tell the ground was under water for quite a while. The most disappointing thing about the trail is the amount of trash. I felt as if I were riding through a dump. Trash everywhere including up in the trees. I imagine the majority of the trash is left from the flooding a few months back. There were 2 guys doing some trail work out there which was good to see. This trail needs lots of work. I plan on volunteering some time to help get it up to par. Not a trail I would make a trip more than 10 miles to get to, but good for a quick romp in the woods near downtown.
My friends & I hiked the blue & orange loops. True definition of a natural trail. Narrow dirt path. Lots of overgrowth especially after all the rain we've had. Hoards of mosquitoes so spray down. Other than the patches of mud and two fallen trees on the path, there was no challenge (incline, etc).
Good for those in the immediate area. For those driving more than 10 miles to get here, save your gas. it's too small and the said mileage is not accurate as you have to bite into previous trails to actually get the full ride.
good for beginners. no challenge here.
positive: dorba did a good job with the decoration within the trail
Decent trail for being in the heart of Dallas, very windy and difficult to navigate if you are hiking or running because the majority of the signs are faced for bikers who typically travel the opposite direction. If you can't get away from the city the trail is a good resource, so long as you don't mind trees decorated with shopping carts and a creek strewn with litter. There is a lot of traffic on this trail which should be a given provided its location.
Decent trail for beginners and those short on time. Trail is in desperate need of maintenance, especially the orange loop and back part of the green loop. Poison ivy everywhere! Also beware of alligator snapping turtles and copperheads. Saw both in the middle of the trail on my last ride. I guess Summer is here.
Nicely wooded trail with lots of birds and some small animals. Nicely maintained dirt path, fairly level. However lots of rash and traffic noise although that might be lessened when the leaves come back to the trees in the spring. Also was not crowded.

The trail has some nice flows, tight turns, and some short hills, as well as a few technical features built in. It is currently about 5.5 miles long. It is well maintained but slow to dry after a rain so check the DORBA website to see if it's open.
