mostly shaded, and a relaxing walk. plenty of bikers. Great for kids. There a creek to play in, and little snail shells the kids can find and collect.

One of my favorite places to go in the Dallas area. It's small, but it's quite great.

Decently fast trail with a few technical parts. Trail is separated into 16 loop sections, you can choose to do one or all. All-in-all a fun ride with plenty of shade, just beware the poison ivy.

The trail was okay but looking for something a little but more challenging.

Very nice

From easy to medium to hard with some technical areas. South trail #2 is easy for beginners. Trail 7 will take you to the hardest trail that is very fun.

A nice meditative walk out, with some hanging, balancing, and jumping along the way, then a nice efficient run back. Stayed grounded with barefeet.

Trail Runners: within 15-20 mins of driving from central Dallas. Easy trails, but your typical mountain bike trail with quick turns, a few up and downs. Trail runs through mostly shade. Quite a few snakes out between 7-12. Today I came across 3 snakes (that i could see)over the entire course. While none were aggressive and happy to be left alone, 2 were directly on the trail and not spotted until after having passed them. 2 of three were same species (copperhead) and the other was a solid dark black or brown. A few snake tips: Treat them with respect and mountain bikers please don't try to piss them off because they will likely strike at the next passerby and it might be a runner. Tell other hikers or bikers nearby to look out for them. Always carry a sharpie and a phone. Circle the area where bitten and record time, continue as swelling increases.

It was great urban oasis with a lot of different terrain. It is a place that you can get in 13 to 15 miles without doing the same trails over. Really nice for a trail you can hit after work.

As of right now after all these rains the mosquitoes are really bad but the trail is awesome.
