Explore the wonders of of Isle du Bois at Ray Roberts Lake State Park on walking, biking, and equestrian trails. Enjoy camping, boating, birding, and fishing. Ray Roberts Lake is a beautiful 30,000-acre lake complex complete with boat ramps, camping, fishing, a swimming beach, numerous hiking trails, equestrian trails, Dorba mountain bike trails, hotel, marina and a park store. Most of Ray Roberts Lake State Park is located in northern Denton County. The Ray Roberts Lake State Park Complex consists of two state park units (Isle du Bois and Johnson Branch), six satellite parks (Jordan Unit, Pond Creek, Pecan Creek, Buck Creek, Sanger, and Elm Fork), Wildlife Management Areas, wetlands, waterfowl sanctuaries and the 20 mile Ray Roberts Lake/Lake Lewisville Greenbelt Corridor.
At the risk of being picky, the map of the track associated with this trail is definitely not the Lost Pines trail. This track is for the Randy Bell Scenic Trail, a 2.2 mile concrete paved loop. Lost Pines is very near the park entrance and is a shorter loop. Also, some reviewers of this trail seem to be talking about the mountain bike trails in the park. I believe those trails are either the Jordan Park trail (going north) or the Elm Fork Trail going south under FM 455 and onto the green belt trail.
If you are interested in the Randy Bell trail, I have asked that it be posted as a new trail.
This is a great paved path for families to either walk or bike on while visiting Lake Ray Roberts. We did the trail on our bikes because the DORBA trail was still closed because of the amount of moisture.
The trail has some elevation gain and loss to it and winds amongst the trees, There are multiple places where you could access a bathroom if necessary with kids and multiple locations to fill up on water along this path as well.
The path goes right by the two camping areas, so if you are camping you can easily access the trail without having to get into the car again.
This trail is very close to the DORBA trail but it is not the same trail system. You will not have to share the trail with all the mountain bikes, and I think that many of the reviews are referring to a different trail system.
Excellent trail for mountain biking. Plenty of up and downhill sections. Beware of large rocks / tree roots and tight spaces between trees, but overall fun trail.
I love this trail. It is a DORBA maintained trail for mountain biking and it is challenging. Lots of climbs, rocks, roots to work with. I run this trail and really get my nature fix out there. Lots of woods and have seen many deer while running. Beautiful place.
Have been running here trails A, B, C, D, and E for a while. Good place to get lost and just run. Good technical sections and some fast sprints as well. A good trail to come run any day! Lots of deer to race with!
We recently start hiking as a family. We really enjoyed Ray Roberts. Great for kids and found some beautiful smaller trails that took us to some beaches. There was a lot more to explore that we didn't take this trip but will in the future. We came across other hikers and bicyclist. Saw several birds, mostly wooded area.
Cool trail. A,b,c,e are pretty simple, D is punishing! Crazy rock climbs, insane gardens. Kept running up on big groups of deer which was cool. 7$ to get in the park.
