Best trail system around, hands down.

We tried to go hiking but all of the trails were flooded. It didn't say anything about it on the park website. so if you're driving any sort of distance, I would suggest to call the park if it has been raining a lot. Other wise, the fall colors on that area are gorgeous.

My friend and I, both 60 year old women, just hiked from Juniper Point to Rock Creek on Monday and Tuesday, Oct 29 and 30, 2018, spending Monday night in a campsite just before the east Lost Loop entrance. We had to bushwhack around or walk through water, sometimes chest high, over 15 times. We lost count. We had to walk around a rattlesnake fairly close to Rock Creek. The trail was mostly well marked. There a few places we had to figure out. I wish all the camp sites had signs and were on a map. I wish there were mile markers occasionally. It was tough but we enjoyed it. 7 hours first day and 6 hours the second day. We parked cars on both ends. We were really surprised Rock Creek was in a gated community but they gave us the code. They were friendly about it on both ends. I don't understand why All Trails calls it a 10 mile out and back. It is much longer than that. It goes all the way to Paw Paw Trailhead close to Lake Texoma Marina, west of Rock Creek Marina. I understand the section from Rock Creek Marina to Paw Paw isn't in very good condition at this time.

Great trails.

Probably one of the best trails I’ve hiked so far. Rough terrain with steep hills and lots of mud. Great view of the lake, beautiful scenery, and no trash was seen at all.

It is a very popular location, so expect to come into contact with others. Dogs not allowed, but we brought our dog with no problem. We also saw deer on the path two separate times roughly 10 yds ahead of us.

Love the challenging trail. It’s very useful to measure your endurance over time.

it was a great trail, just be advised that due to the rain certain parts of the trail may not be accessible, so you'll have to walk off the trail and through some brush

A private oasis amongst a sea of concrete!

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

To all of the hikers who think this trail would be better without all of the mountain bikers, this trail wouldn't exist if not for the bikers. DORBA (Dallas Off Road Bike Association) created and maintains the trail. Thank the bikers as they pass you for providing such a gem in the DFW metroplex.

This is my new go-to trail with my dog. Free to get in during the day at the Murrell Park entrance. I would consider this a mountain biking trail that allows hikers. Lots of bikes! Make sure you don’t have headphones in so you can hear the bikers coming up behind you. Everyone has been very friendly when passing and let you know how many are behind them and when it’s clear to keep walking. Definitely worth exploring!
The trail is narrow and one way with spots to turn around if you don’t want to do the whole loop.

Great trail, will definitely be back. Happened upon this one because the first trail we went to was closed. Bike traffic, but nothing bad, all bikers were courteous. Walked about 7 miles of the trails today, will more than likely go back next weekend and do a different portion.

Great trail for a easy hike. However, I can’t understate the level of biblical swarms of mosquitos that accompany this entire trail. Unless it is below 50 degrees or windy you may not want to attempt this hike. We kept to a forced march pace and were still harassed constantly. Yes we were wearing long sleeves and covered in deet. We saw several deer and a herd of hogs on our Saturday morning trek.

It was hot. Started at Juniper and hiked to Eagles Roost. Trail became difficult to find. Backtracked to 5 mile camp which was great for the little breeze coming off the lake. Sleeping deep in the trees would have been HOT. Pretty good for an overnight trip so close to Dallas. Watch out for snakes. Copperheads and Cottenmouths especially. There’s lots of tall grass and water-level dips where you can, and we nearly did, step on one.

Awesome place , awesome view , I had been their last Saturday , it was raining , the view was just something to watch out for. Nearer to the city and such a lush green landscape hard to find.

I have done this trail many times over the past year. I used it December to February as a training hike for the AT. This trail should not be listed as 14.4 miles. if you begin at Juniper Point and hike to Rock Creek Resort and marina, you have about 10.1 miles. The 4 miles beyond that are basically impassable and should be deleted from the map. I reached out to the caretaker of this trail on several.occasions last year to assist him in marking the last 4 miles of the trail to no avail. He isn't willing to mark it properly and he isn't willing to do any clearing. don't waste your time and effort. Stop at Rock Creek and turn around for a 20 mile hike or have a pick up scheduled for that point.

Love this place. It's right off of Denton Hwy so be careful or you'll miss the entrance. Not suitable for strollers or young children.
Make sure you bring bug spray! I was being attacked my mosquitoes constantly. I had my dog with me and he loved it. Some parts are a little tricky, but its also a bit muddy right now.

Great trails, not difficult but still had elevation. Beautiful scenery all around!!

Cost: $7 per person.

Need I say more? Other states don't charge money to walk around in nature.

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

I've hiked all the trails. Great trail system.

The first 3 miles of this trail are beautiful and amazing. The farther in you go, the less maintained it is. The super tall grass on either side has fallen in many places and the trail is often obscured by fallen branches and such. I also got a tick bite on this trail. Nothing against the trail there, just be vigilant! Also around mile 4 ish there is so much trash! Everything from trash bags to tires to an old refrigerator.

Indian creek was so refreshing and enjoyable after the trek . Good concrete trails and natural trails available to explore .

Only did half mile trail. But definitely liked it. However it is the busiest trails I have ever seen. No less than fifty cars in the parking lot. In the middle of the week 30 min. Before it closes.

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

just another good hike at Cedar Ridge
