Bald Eagle nesting area, secluded lake coves, waterfowl everywhere Mura Trail is in the Dogwood Canyon primitive camping area of the Lake Ray Roberts State Park Johnson Branch off of FM3002 outside Valley View, Texas. The trail is intended to be an access trail for the 50 or so walk in primitive camp sites in the Dogwood Canyon area. Trail is a natural surface single track that can be simply an out and back trip like I took, or can be extended by taking the loops that go into the individual primitive camping areas. Trail is in good condition and is shared with mountain bikers. Scenery is beautiful in the area and it is important to note that several nesting pairs of Bald Eagles use the area year-round.
Pretty good trail. It's well maintained and easy to follow. There is not much crisscrossing. We saw views of the lake at times. We only saw 4 bikers the 2.5 hours we were there.
A very easy walk that starts next to the lake then winds away from it although there are many small side trail leading back to the water. I brought my dog unleashed and other hikers did not mind.
