This trail is marked “closed” due to flooding. The Ranger I spoke with said there was no timetable regarding repairs or reopening.

I’ve only run here once during the Rockledge Rumble trail race, but it was my favorite trail run so far. Excellent trail. Loved the mix of terrain and thought it was fairly technical for the area. Definitely recommend it.

I love this trail Sept -May! Once I even happened upon a geo cash by accident. It’s very pretty and it feels very safe I like biking or walking it.

It was great trail

Soft sand through 70% of it. Marking it hard to get footing. Poorly marked but trails are obvious and you never lose cell signal so not an issue.
On the plus side it’s very quiet. Trail is only for hikers and horses. Saw one person the whole time on a Sunday morning. The super soft sand made this a not return for me ALTHOUGH I might return to lay on of 3 beaches on the shores of the lake that are nice and sandy.

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.

Beautiful find in the middle of suburbia. Not a fan of suburbia, so this is a gem to me.

Absolutely love these trails. It’s a great mix of level running ground, some mild switch backs, some sandy portions, and some more technical rocky sections. No huge hills or climbs.

Tons of mountain bikers if weather is nice so DO NOT wear headphones. I choose to run counter clockwise along with bikers bc while running I feel I have more of a warning. If I was walking/hiking, I’d go clockwise opposite of bikers.

A few water spigots at major breakpoints but take plenty of water with you as you’re pretty isolated most of the time.

The best part is that it’s not a true out and back since there are the east and west trails. Sometimes they merge, but it’s nice to go out 5 miles, turn come back on a different trail 5 miles to get in 10 (or easily more).

Considering what's immediately around the area, this trail is a hidden gem. Great for running, fishing and I notice a lot of birding as I pass through. A nice reprieve from the hot Texas sun.

To prepare for our September hiking vacation, we hike portions of this trail 3 times per week. It can't prepare us for the altitude in the mountains, but it does help build our stamina, especially in the Texas summer heat. Probably the best hiking/biking trail in DFW. If you start at Rockledge Park on east end or Twin Coves Park on the west end, be prepared for a fee. If you start at the main Murrell Park entrance at the end of Simmons Road, or the old Murrell Park entrance at the end of N. Park Drive, there's no fee.
There are one way signs for bike traffic that goes counter-clockwise. For safety reasons, DORBA.org (who maintains the trail) recommends that hikers go clockwise so they can see oncoming bikes. This is important, because although hikers have the right of way, bikers rarely yield to hikers and you'll be jumping out of the way. A few years ago, I hiked counter-clockwise with the bike traffic and got run over from behind. That's why DORBA.org and the Army Corps of Engineers recommend walking against the bike traffic. Nice views of the lake on the some portions.

Took 4, 10 year olds on a Tuesday morning/afternoon. The beach area was super clean, the water was clean, and warm. Not very many people. Loved it!

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

Great trails! Crosses the pavement a few times but nice views. Took kiddos 5 & 7 years and the fur baby. Will definitely bring clients to train!
