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!

decent for dog walking. mostly flat trails, with a couple miles of pavement too for easy walking.

It was really beautiful and there were so many wildflowers. This is great hike for the springtime.

Bike friendly. If hiking, be sure to go in the opposite direction because trail is narrow & bikers have city manners. Decent trail for inner city hiking. Easy to moderate

Clean, smooth, wide concrete lit up path around pond with wildlife. Cool cause it’s away from cars & emissions!
2 restrooms, plenty of benches along the path & even a doggie fountain!

This was fun. We cut through about halfway to leave due to daylight hours. I wouldn’t rate it as hard the 11 yo and 7 yo did it easily but fun for sure

Interesting trail. The good is that it offers a wilderness experience close to downtown. The unpaved trails feel like game trails with just enough hills to keep it fun. Some of the bad things are that there is indeed homeless people camping out, although if you stick to the main trails it is unlikely you will stumble across any. I only saw two trail markers but it's pretty hard to get lost. I went on a rather gloomy day, so the whole experience had a bit of a fallout 4 vibe.

The trails themselves are very nice if you’re looking for rugged natural areas. This review is based on the area. I started hiking here at lunch a few days ago and yesterday discovered a campfire that had gotten out of control. My assumption is that this area is close enough to downtown to have homeless people camping here. I will not be going again. If you are in a group you may feel safe but I would not go alone or with smaller children.

Very nice and clean. Great place to walk, run or just hang out by the water.

Beautiful view but like a previous review, there is a bunch of trash and way too much broken glass all over the trail. No markers either.

Nice trails, love all the switch backs. The lack of trail markers wasn’t a big deal to me because there’s a map at the trailhead. This place could be so beautiful if it weren’t for all the trash. Unfortunately, we share this planet with lazy fucks that don’t respect the beauty that surrounds us.
