Excellent trail. For a Dallas trail, this was pretty difficult. Bring water with you as you will need it.

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.

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.

Great place to walk dogs. Lots of stops with water. Katy Trail Ice House is also a nice place to cool off. Misters and water for doggies and humans!

Nice trail with some added hills and some bonus trails you can go on. Loved Cedar Ridge Preserve.

hiking

It was very cool, some parts are easy some others while your getting closer to the pond, it starts to get difficult and the last .2 miles are completely under the sun, no shadows at all. But it's worth it, when you reach the pond you can see all the turtles and fish swimming.

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.

Good hiking trail, I wouldn't rate it as a hard trail but for a run it is definitely a good workout.

hiking

This is a nice trail designed for mountain bike riders. We hiked it for about an hour loop on an early Sunday afternoon in the middle of July at 100 degrees. There is lots of shade. The trail leads through wooded and open terrain. don't be shy to take the red trail, it goes through a slightly more hilly terrain which makes for a more interesting hike. If you are lucky, like we were, there won't be any mountain bikers. Due to the trail being narrow you can't go next to each other. You can reach the trail head within a few minutes from downtown Dallas just passed the Zoo.

Did a 5k summer running series here a few years back. Not a terribly interesting or challenging course.
