I loved it!

Made it about halfway down (very muddy) trail when it dead ended into water. Trail was okay, nothing particularly interesting other than some short side trails. Bugs weren't terrible, but it was in the low 60s. It wasn't bad, but nothing worth coming back to.

This is a very nice city park located in Watauga, TX. It has restrooms at both end of the park. The cement path is great for walking and it’s 1.3 miles around. You can measure your walk by how many times you go around. It’s clean, well manicured, and has great parking. This is a city walking path.

Nice trail. Some trash. But not too bad
Very wet today
Nice and rocky along w varied trail

The area was nice and clean, but I would consider this a heavily trafficked loop. There were only a few people when I arrived just before the sunrise, but by the end of my 40 minute walk there were tons of people. There were a lot of families camping out on the green spaces too, just off the concrete sidewalk. Overall the area was pretty nice, and well maintained. I may go back at some point, but for now I will keep checking out other areas where I can walk my dogs

Way too many mosquitoes as a result of recent rains and warm weather made it unpleasant. Even covered with bug spray we didn’t make it far before turning back. Will try again when the temps drop. Saw a group of hikers turn around almost immediately—now I know why the parking lot was empty even though it was a beautiful day.

good walk

enjoyed what I was able to do, but it is severely overgrown after about a mile and a half. I switched over to the trail on the other side because there was no way around the dense overgrowth. there is also an excessive amount of trash on this trail. if I was out to hike for beauty, it would have bugged me. but since I was just trying to run through, it wasn't terrible.

Very easy trail. About 85% of it is under shade.

Scoped this place out for my son’s Cub Scouts. Overall, it’s a nice set-up. We enjoyed the views, with lots of trees and rugged terrain. In some areas there was a lot of trash. We came across a sleeping bag and two sets of clothes, undergarments and all. Not sure where the people belonging to those clothes were.

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!!

Flat, smooth, and fast! The rail is designed for flow. Appropriate for all mountain bike skill levels, including youth. Other riders in the area are very friendly and social. Trail is appropriate for other activities also.

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.

Great. Well maintained trail. Its lit at night, as well. Only downside is that there is no shade.

I’ve been on this trail it is kept nice wildlife is amazing to look at while biking or walking or running whatever the case may be but it is just beautiful.

Fantastic trail once you're beyond the Old Alton bridge. Quiet (except for distant traffic noise), fluctuating scenery and terrain, and clean. Terrain gets really hilly and a bit treacherous east of the Village Pkwy bridge, then the trail fades as you go further east. A local resident told me the trail riders stopped maintaining it east of that bridge after the 2015 flood.

Went on a hike the trails are not well kept at all. There is a lot of trash and the trails get lost the deeper you go in. If you enjoy bike riding I recommend this one for sure.

There was so much trash. Very sad

Bike only,
Trail is really narrow
Not hiker friendly

Love the waterfall

Trying to find the old tractors that are here somewhere!

Best places with a lot of deep hills. Great workout place.

so let's all get together and clean it up!

Awesome park. We had a blast. It was our first time on the trail and we had no problems following the trail. The trails are clearly marked and no sand spurs.

Second time coming here, love the trails but hat all the trash.

Really nice marked trails.

Definitely easy to maneuver and there is always an easier way down those trains.

Brought my dog out we both had a lot of fun seems pretty safe considering it was just me and her and didn't have any trouble:) I'd go back!

Amazing run I was sore for a week

This trail could use some TLC. Not very many wild flowers along the trail itself, but a big patch by the park. Its best to stay on the main trail, we accidently ended up in someone's backyard and a lot of the other trails were cutoffs. Watch for snakes as well! We saw a 2ft black snake at the first creek on the trail.
Bring a small trash bag if you're feeling generous to pick up trash along the trail!
