A 5.4 mile loop trail through the woods of Sister Grove Park. Sister Grove Trail is a 5.4 mile loop trail through the woods of Sister Grove Park. It runs in an forest-clearing-forest-clearing fashion with heavy winding through the terrain to increase its length. The trail starts off innocently enough with a pretty meander near a small pond - and is quite well maintained toward its head - but as the end of the first mile approaches the undergrowth begins to start encroaching. For the majority of the trail the abundant poison ivy (I mean, it IS Texas) is too close for comfort. There are also a great many insects including quite a few territorial wasps that will aggressively buzz your face. Tall hikers beware! Whoever maintains this trail is SHORT! You will be crouching most of the way! There is wildlife on this trail. The VERY welcome meadow portions feature beautiful butterflies, dragon and damselflies, rodents, rabbits, and birds. The flora here is also quite beautiful - grasses and wildflowers depending on the season. The forests are DENSE, but there is animal life here too. BEAUTIFUL black/yellow garden spiders spin magnificent webs (albeit ACROSS the trail). If you're quiet and avoid crunching fallen plant debris you might glimpse a coyote or possum, both of which inhabit this area. All in all, the lack of trail maintenance puts a big damper on what could be an awesome hike.

Nice trail! Definitely bring hiking shoes to get through the mud if you go after a rain. I took the red trail. It’s definitely geared towards bikes which gives it a nice challenge for hikers.

For N Texas, this is a nice trail. Lots of tree cover, good distances and secluded.

Perfection. Safari Loop had plenty of shade but no mud. Spider webs not a problem.

Use the DORBA site or app to check for trail closures due to weather (mud). I used to be trail steward here. I’m glad to see the crew grew and took such good care of it. It’s a blast now, a fast and technical trail that will hone all your off road cycling skills. Great for a hike also. The trail is split into 4 clover leaf loops so you can get water and a shady bench after each section. My favorite section is Safari Loop (Green route ).

Absolutely loved the Sister Trail! Felt a little like hiking back in Virginia. Felt great! Will definitely go back and will venture into the other trails eventually. Thank you Blue Ridge for the upkeep and maintenance

It's a fun trail as long as you can deal with the spider webs and mud.

Trail itself is fun, not well maintained however, and was extremely muddy / sticky with an insane amount of spiderwebs all over the trail. I had to carry a stick the whole way and swing it up and down while I walked to try and swipe away the webs. I'd probably do this trail again, but only during the summer when it's dry ground and later in the day so hopefully someone else has cleared all the spiderwebs. Would most likey rate 5 stars however without the issues I described above

Great place well taken care of by DORBA. Reminds me of my childhood in the Carolinas. Makes me feel like I’m not in Texas anymore

Great trails. We only took the safari trail. it was great. deer tracks, deep forests. well marked trails. Will be back soon to hit the other trails. Very secluded. We were the only ones in the park. Only noise we heard was the birds.

Nice trail but more a biking trail than a hiking trail. Lots of windy curves that pass where you just walked but 10 yards away. But the forest is nice as it's a pine forest and unusual for Texas. We enjoyed it.

Nice place. 4 different trails. Wooded to grassland. Went after rain and boots got caked with dirt/mud. Had to stop several times to clean them off. Saw deer tracks. Saw big cottonmouth in swampy area.

This trail really does give you quit a workout. There are 4 trails to choose from we did the safari and the lake. The safari was well shaded but the lake only had a few shaded spot but well worth the walk will be one of my new walking spots most definitely.

Nice trail. I like the fact that all the trails tie into a central hub. Makes the distance options very flexible. Nice scenery and mostly shaded.
