Paved walk/bike path through park constructed around city reservoir. Multiple parking lots around the pathway. Relatively level terrain. White Rock Lake is a water reservoir constructed circa 1900 to supply water to the growing Dallas area. The surrounding land has been turned into a picturesque city park and is, in turn, surrounded by neighborhoods. Paved multiuse pathway circumnavigates the lake with several (apparently older and unmaintained) walking pathways branching off at various points. Interconnects with other pathways (see also http://www.dallasparks.org/Downloads/Trails/DallasTrailNetworkPlan.pdf).

Great for walking, running and biking. There are always people around but not so crowded that you feel smothered. They also have a pretty cool dog park there. It's a beautiful place to run. No entrance fee and many different spots to park.

Favorite place to walk my dogs! My boyfriend and I bring them out here every Saturday morning! Lots of bikes but still great for walking dogs.

LOVE this amazing trail in Dallas. It is an easy grade, not much sloping and really enjoyed all of the beautiful lake scenes.

A great walk. Lots of birds singing and not too crowded, despite popularity.

Best outdoor scene in Dallas. This is my home trail that I hike, jog, and cycle on. On weekends it's crowded so be careful and if you are walking always stay on the right side of the trail for people to pass you.

White Rock Lake is an oasis in the city. Love this trail. It's an easy walk on paved trail. Often busy, especially on weekends

Nice paved city trail around White Rock Lake. Tons of traffic on and around this trail on the weekends. A lot of "on your left" verbiage. A few little hills to mix it up. Lots to look at and good people watching to entertain yourself during a run or ride. Lots of parking but the bathrooms/porta pottys can be quite sketchy...as in few of them and nasally/visually offensive. Lots of cool homes to see too.

Great city trail! Just moved nearby and excited this will be my home trail. Unlike everyone else it hasn't been too crowded for me, we'll see how that goes as it warms up. Scenery is very nice, plenty of nature right in the middle of Big D. The only downside for me is that it is entirely paved, I prefer dirt. Other than that, it's a nice run.
