This is a great urban trail and is heavily used by the citizens of Dallas! It’s not a wilderness hike in the Rockies, but it’s great, just the same!

Is ok but too many aholes on road bikes who think they own the road,

Decent trail for running.

Great to run and people watch. Easy on the knee as there are no incline.

This is a nice trail in the middle Dallas. Every piece touches the lake where you can see the birds and activities.

My favorite place in the area for a short run. I usually do the loop that you walk in from toward the back of the parking lot - think it’s about 1.7 miles total. Well-maintained and definitely makes me feel like I’m not in DFW!

Nice mostly-wooded loop. DORBA keeps the trail well-maintained.

good trail for runners and walkers.

great place to take the family and for runners and bikes. There are better trails out there for hiking though.

We were looking for a nice walking trail and this fit the bill. We did about 3 miles round-trip on the bike path. Picked up a couple pieces of trash, but the grounds were, overall, well kept.

Trails are really confusing and not marked. More markers would make this a great trail. I could care less where it’s located or next door to.

the trail head is labeled to start across a heavily trafficked highway, not sure why they want you walk across a street as your start. I left before I started

I hate running on pavement, and the 5 miles I ran today are all pavement. not a great running trail, but nice, scenic walk or bike ride through the city. Nice by SMU campus.

Made the full loop recently. One of the many hydrating stops had a water mister which was perfect on a hot day.

This is walk. Not hiking as in a national park on a trail.

To all you hikers that keep complaining, take a minute to think who maintains the trail.. (DORBA).
(YES, IT COSTS BOTH MONEY TO BUY TOOLS AND LOTS OF VOLUNTEER HOURS TO KEEP THE TRAILS TIDY)
Then take another minute to figure out what does that mean. Hikers are more than welcome. but please no matter the park you go to. always stop at the trailhead and READ THE RULES!!!
most trails will ask hikers to go in the oposite direction so you can spot bikers from a distance and move aside.
thank you all for understanding.
have a great day!!

Well maintained and good for many activities at all age and skill levels. Nice escape from the traffic and has some decent views of the Dallas skyline.

This is a very short trail, but there is an incline so it may be hard for young children. The trail is pretty overgrown but you can easily keep track of it. During the summer it's hard to see the dallas skyline where the bench is, but it should be much more visible as the leaves fall! You can hear the cars and the dart train but you can not see them from the trail. The trail head is kind of hidden, it's in the clearing of trees next to the big power line tower. Lots of bugs in the summer so put on bugspray! There are lots of shaded areas but also some clearings so suncreen is a must also.

beautiful lake; grew up in the area and still ride 2-3 times a week. it can get busy, but still always enjoyable.

favorite trail

Easy to get lost, poorly marked. That is part of the fun though! Have gps or a compass and it’s a blast exploring all the fun trails.
Mild elevation changes throughout. Incredible scenery!

Very fun experience and I look forward to learning more of these trails.

This is my local training spot for running and cycling. I love it but you do have to watch out for others...sometimes the cyclists are the jerks thinking they're at le tour and sometimes runners are the jerks wearing earbuds and can't hear approaching cyclists. Sometimes there are just families with kids who dart across the path. Overall, it's great. I like tacking on the other trails so I don't have to ride the loop multiple times to get in extra miles. It is a gem in the middle of the city and I'm so glad I live nearby.

Lots of shade, trail markers, paved, trash bins, benches to rest if necessary.

Lots of pretty nature to see. High traffic on the morning of 4th of July. Some exposed areas out of the shade, so bring a hat and lots of water if going the summer. Trails are marked with various types of signs and some of them contradictory to others, so it's a little confusing. Also had a ton of cut throughs that make staying on the trails challenging, and again make it easy to get lost. If I'd taken my bike, I'd be annoyed with the amount of foot traffic. Still, it's beautiful.
