I’m not even sure how you find the trail here. I paid five dollars to get into the park and was unable to find the trail head. The gentleman working the window was not helpful and complained when I asked for my money back. But all I did was literally drive around the park two times before giving up

Used the AllTrails app ‘Directions’ feature to find where to park / start. The Park was closed on Saturday at noon when I arrived, so there was nowhere to park. Did not end up trying this trail / went elsewhere to hike.

Trail is being consumed by construction and development. What was once a nice trail except when muddy/sticky is becoming less and less useable by the month it seems.

I use this trail primary for training purposes since I live very close by. Unfortunately, the trail is becoming extremely worn out with a lot of erosion. It is located in a flood plane so after rain it does flood and brings quite a bit of trash from the lake up to the trail which does not make for a good view. Currently there is a lot of construction due to encroaching housing development. North of Collin Park a housing development cut the trail in half. South of Breckenridge a housing development diverted the trail to the perimeter of the development. At the very North part of the trail a pipe line has been put in and destroyed a portion of the trail as well. Not what I want to see while hiking. Word of warning, the trail becomes very tacky after a rain and will stick to your shoes/boots. Unless we have a hot summer it takes a bit for the trail to dry out. Don't expect beautiful views unless you go off trail toward the lake on a nice day.

do not part in East fork park, the trail head is West down skyline. before you get to the park take a left on skyline. there is a day use/ equestrian friendly lot on the right not far down. once you step thru the walking gate... take an immediate left along the fence line... the path that goes straight from the gate dead ends at the lake. horse trail also so it is rough. at about 3 miles in we cut over to skyline and walked back on the road

Very over grown foliage, tall grasses and trees aid in diminishing the trail. Difficult to find path into forest and need a to wear long sleeves and pants to avoid bites and scratches. Same goes for Highland Park entrance.

For the DFW area this is a nice, easy, trail, generally flat with gentle rolling terrain through woods and along the lake shore. Very laid back compared to Cedar Ridge and Northshore for example. Very easy to plan runs of any distance/duration, including ultra distances. Nothing technical. No tight loops or switchbacks. No bikes. There are horses. Very soft soil surface. There is no fee, it's open to runners and hikers, and there are multiple access points. Plan to self support--there are rest areas at trail heads, but working water fountains can be iffy. There are very nice restrooms at trail heads. Convenience stores, restaurants, Starbucks,, all nearby before turning into the park. PLEASE NOTE, signs may direct you NOT to park inside circle drives which are reserved for horse trailers--there is room to park along the entrance road to trailhead and day use areas. If you check and study the Trinity Trail Riders web site, you'll find ample information on trail heads and trail map with mileages which I found to be generally accurate. Note signage on etiquette with horses--as with bikes, sharing works well as long as everyone observes the rules. BE ADVISED! The loamy/caliche soil becomes plastic in texture with even light rain and will gob onto your shoes with NO breaks, with sections of trail becoming very slick. You'll be running with 1 lb.+ of mud on each shoe and/or be stopping every 100 yards to clean your shoes. My trail shoes shed mud very well, but there is no end to it. Starts building up again as soon as the last mounds fall off. Took 10 minutes blasting my shoes with a garden hose to get it all off. You get the picture. Makes for tough running. Sadly, there is some trash left off and around trails--grab some to take with you if possible on your way out. Otherwise, very pleasant setting.

After parking in the Trail head parking lot, seeing a trail.that lead only to the lake, I walked bio up to parking area and could not find the Trail head. It looks like you walk along the road! must revisit. Not clearly marked.

This trail is NOT just a horse trail, there's not a fee, and dogs are allowed so long as they are on a leash...just to set the record straight. It does close at times if flooding occurs in an effort to save the trails. We've hiked from Brockdale towards the East head and from Brockdale towards Highland. Both routes are very beautiful.

Followed GPS all the way there, only to be turned away and be told it was a horse trail. If I wanted to go any further, I'd have to pay. Epic fail.

This was my first trail that made me fall in love with hiking! Quiet and peaceful and very green.

Enjoy this trail often. Section from Highland Park trail head north behind Fairview is well shaded. At the north end of the trail is a giant Sycamore tree with a picnic bench. Great for running and hiking when not muddy.

pretty boring hiking trail, probably only good for long gear testing sorts of walks, but it is a very nice area for trail running (only reason for the 3 stars). Be mindful of the horse riders, summer weekends bring the crowds.

Found the equestrian trailhead and hiked in. Came to late in the day and will have to return again to see it all. Nice views and would be great on horse back.

We didn't go far because the trail was too muddy. It rained the night before. I would like to finish this trail on a dryer day. As far as I can see though, this trail is a great trail to hike. Here's a map that I found later: and more info here:

We weren't allowed into the park at all because we had a dog and he was not allowed into the park. The map leads you to Collin Park to access the trail. If I missed something, someone let me know. Suckola! N

Went with wide and our two dogs on May 6th. Trail is very overgrown, with grass just short of knee height. Not fun for us but the dogs loved it.

Was surprised how fun this trail was. There was some small rolling hills, but nothing extreme. Me my wife and son hiked 18 miles of it and had a blast. Some real beautiful views of Lake Lavon. No bikes on trail so that was a plus. More horse back riders then hikers bt they were all very friendly. Lots of shade. See pictures! Highly recommend this trail for hikers or horse back riders.
