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.

Nice hiking trail for 20 min outside dallas. Mostly shaded which was nice. Rocky so I had to put boots on my dog. Can’t complain otherwise! Very little bike traffic although I came out on a weekday during the day.

loved the beachy parts. the off the beaten path trails are the best if you want to be physically challenged, but just moderately. view of the lake is beautiful.

Trail is listed as a DORBA sponsored mtb trail. Trail is overgrown, poorly marked, and offers little shade. There are some viewpoints of the river but the river isn't really a saving grace for this location. Some areas are very sandy. I suppose it's nice for locals looking for a quiet place, this is definately not a destination trail.

great for walking and riding however it is closed until further notice for repairs. This information should be updated on this site!

The hardest part about this hike was the heat. There was nothing challenging otherwise. But it was a great way to spend the day working out.

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.

love love looooooove this trail... nice and quiet and lots to do in the different areas... will for sure be making this one a weekly trip

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.

Bike only,
Trail is really narrow
Not hiker friendly

love hiking here has options different Trails.

breathtaking,everyone we meat on our hike was amazely nice. The sites we saw were so beautiful and relaxingthat, that before we new it we had walked 11mails.

Nice trails, clean, lots of shade.

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.

Overall, the nature preserve is nice, with many different path options to manage how far you want to go. Relatively well kept, but I did see a little trash along the trail.

My biggest issue is that the trail is poorly marked. Easy to get lost with lots of random offshoots to confuse just about everyone on the trail.

My second issue, which might be more of a preference, is that over half the trail is not shaded. If it’s summer in dallas, you will need to bring plenty of water for you and your dog.

Not bad for the ride. A lot of inclines and turns. Give it a try. I went on the 3 mile course twice, next time I’ll try the 8 mile

always a nice little escape. Use your GPs though it's easy to get lost.

Relaxing view while biking. Water fountain and public bathroom available.

On a Thursday morning in the summer, this trail was wonderful. It was quiet, serene and there weren’t many people out. It was a great start to my day

All paved, super flat. Easy start to finish and always crowded, even on week days. Very well-maintained and litter-free. The wisteria in the springtime is absolutely lovely. Stop at Katy Trail Ice House if it's a drinkin' sort of hike.

A surprisingly lovely hidden gem. Parts were a bit littered when I went. Navigation can be tricky, just pay close attention and have a GPS app. Lots of shade.

A lovely lake to take a leisurely bike, walk, or run. Can be quite littered at times. Watch out for cyclists, they'll switch between road rules and pedestrian rules in an instant. Check out White Rock Paddle Co for kayaking!
