This trail offers refreshing variety for hikers, bikers, joggers, and rollerbladers alike as it connects Anderson Bonner Park, Harry S. Moss Nature Area, Fair Oaks Tennis Center, and eventually joins the white Rock Lake Park trail system. This is a concrete, 12'-wide (narrows at points to 8') path that runs along White Rock Creek in North Dallas.
Hiked 8.5 miles today. Wouldn't hike it again. All paved, lots of graffiti, homeless people camped out right beside the trail near where it goes under Forest Lane. Can't really even enjoy the river for all the trash. I would bike it, but probably not alone.
bike path. not very safe if you are a jogger
This trail is far from "multiple activities." This is basically a bike path (I was the only person on foot I saw all day) with some places so full of graffiti that not being on a bike feels unsafe. I was looking for a nice hike. This was definitely not the place to go. Will not be returning.
Covers a lot of distance
Good for biking
Considering that someone was hacked to death with a machete last year, I am a little leery to go on there again. There is a lot of trash. And some pretty sketchy people.
Walked about 6 mi. I wish the trail would have gone in a loop and not straight. Lots of trash in the river.
Pretty nice place to walk the dog
