Great little hike. The beginning was a little boring but the falls were a spectacle to see. Also the cave was a little creepy as it was getting dark later in the evening.

Round trip: 3miles
Elevation gain: 846ft
Time: 1hr 5min

One of the best trails in the area.

been here once, talk about beautiful!

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 trail. I like the fact that all the trails tie into a central hub. Makes the distance options very flexible. Nice scenery and mostly shaded.

Clean, lots of trails and shade in Texas!

Love it. Tons of birds and grass hoppers. Also there are some wasps that you have to avoid, but to me that's what makes a trail great.

The views were simply amazing. Waterfalls, caves, wildlife ❤️

Trail is cared for, only encountered two downed trees that were really in the way at all, a big one at Katy's loop at the far east. It is dry, sometimes dusty, and lots of overgrowth on most sides of the trail.

There are a few little clearings, especially around the pond right after you cross wildwood drive. There are several picnic tables there which look to have been put there by BSA eagles for their projects. These were the nice little areas that made you feel great about the hike - not just like you were hemmed in by brush.

The last half, when you are walking the Trinity, there are many places where people come in and fish. There tends to be a lot of trash, either from the high tide, or just inconsiderate people fishing there along the river.

Overall, a good 2-3 hours leisurely stroll through, or way quicker hike if you want to hoof it. Well shaded, so fairly cool the whole time. Lots of bypasses.

You can visit the California crossing park across the Trail Head and see a small spillway. Kinda fun, but again, all the inconsiderate people there leaving trash is a bit off putting.

Very easy hike and lots of cool things to see, you have to go into the cave at the very end!

Wonderful mountain biking trail for any skill level in my opinion. Whether you are early in your mountain biking journey looking to increase your technical skills and bike control, or a veteran that wants to session technical sections over and over until you get it perfect, this trails has it. I enjoyed the ability to ride it for the first time while pushing each corner. Definitely keeps you out of the saddle and exercising the skills to look up and see what’s coming around the bend. Loved the constant twist and turns. Definitely will be adding this into the regular rotation of rides in North DFW

The trail was really challenging for us as we are beginners but was worth it.

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.

Trail is good for a local option, has fast and flowing sections and is easy to navigate. The trail is eroding in areas on biking lines. My kids enjoyed the new experience.

We LOVED this trail! My 11yr old son and I did this hike on a Monday and it wasn't crowded at all. This trail has so much to explore along the way. The natural bridge, large rock shelter, waterfall (just a trickle currently), and the cave were all fun. I had read reviews previously so we came prepared to explore the cave with headlamps and flashlights. Explored far enough back that we were very cramped and then squeezed into a little tunnel where we could stand up that led back out. There was also a very large "room" just to the left when you enter the cave. As others mentioned, the rocks around and in the cave are slick so be cautious. Overall, a very cool trail and one that I would love to do again if I'm back in the area. I think we spent about an hour and a half doing the whole trail.

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.

My family and I went today. We have lived in the area for about 2 years and have never been. It’s was absolutely beautiful and for those who love the outdoors and exploring it’s a great place to start. We were able to navigate easily and enjoyed getting in the water. I do wish people who visited the area took better care to clean up after themselves.

We love this trail. Even with the river beds dry later in the summer it is still a lot of fun to hike and climb the rocks. The cave was awesome! Bring a flashlight or headlamp! A great place for a family outing. Our kids love it as much as we do!

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.

Nice area and hike. I am new to hiking but in good shape, and Im so mad I just discovered this place...

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.

Wonderful paved walking path with numerous off road trails crisscrossing the area. Biking on the paved path or on the dedicated off road biking trail only. Very popular destination.

Beautiful! Unfortunately, the drought affected the water flow; but still worth the trek.

Awesome trails! Plenty of elevation changes. Several jumps built throughout the trail system.

I really liked this trail. The first part is easy and then it gets more challenging. There are a lot of stairs, but the views and natural formations are worth it. Saw 3 snakes on my hike, one copperhead. The day was hot and dry so the rocks were not slippery. I did the hike in tennis shoes and was just fine.

This is my favorite place (so far) in NTX to trail run! So many challenging elevation changes, the air smells like cedar, it’s scenic, and I love encountering other runners on the trail. Bring real supportive trail running shoes!, even if you’re hiking, this loop is not for the faint of heart. Great bird watching & place to get your heart rate elevated.

A regular spot for me and. My family! Offers a good range of walking/hiking and biking trails.

Just two miles away from Flatiron District, Arbor Hills has both concrete and dirt trails. The outer loop trail is a good dirt trail to practice trail running, and is 2.5 miles long, providing a nice five mile trail run or hike.

Love this place ❤️

I love this place, lots of hidden treasures if you know where to look. Follow the creek up stream at the wood bridge and continue up to the springs. You won't be disappointed. You can also travel the main trail, that passes by the main water fall, across the swinging bridge and continue down until you think the trail ends. It doesn't, though it's nearly impossible to see, just keep going. There are cascading water falls, the ruins of the first water mill in Bell county, and remains of the Chisholm trail were thousands of wagons left there wheel tracks in limestone. People are trashy here though. I've picked up over 15 grocery bags worth of trash. I once carried out 6 at a time. It is a gem regardless.
