Gateway Park Trail is a 1.1 mile lightly trafficked loop trail located near Dallas, Texas and is rated as moderate. The trail is primarily used for hiking and walking and is accessible year-round.
This trail is great for beginners and if you stay on the north side of the river it is easy and about 4 miles and if you do the south side it's a lot harder and adds a couple miles
For the life of me I couldn't find the entrance to this trail. I drove all around the area it was supposed to be. All I could find is the very small park across from the library. I could see a wooded area behind the library but no way to access it. What is the trick to find the trail?
This trail is now closer to 4 miles in length. Great rhythm and flow with lots of whoops and tight sections. Nothing too challenging, but a good ride.
Complaints:The trailhead markings are great, but the rest could really be improved. And there are a few sections that follow the sidewalk/road - meh...
Excellent beginners trail.
