Went there yesterday, Sunday evening, with my grandson. Rode his bike around the trail. Can absolutely recommend for women alone. Busy trail, lots of people around and women walking/running alone. Great lane etiquette. I'll definitely be back.

One of the best trails in the area.

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.

Clean, lots of trails and shade in Texas!

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

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.

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.

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.

Nice for a short getaway in North Denton County. "Beware of Snakes" signs are for real. Crossed a copperhead this morning on our second visit this month.

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.

Nice smooth easy Trail for a late spring hike. We only did the end by the lake. You need to start early if you are hiking this Trail in the late spring or summer.

I live in Plano. It is the best park in the area, although Oak Point is more wild, Arbor Hills offers some fantastic family friendly trails. Good luck finding peace and quiet here because it is extremely crowded.

Playground is great for kids (2-12)

It's got it all....camping,fishing,hiking,and swimming....whats not talking luv ?

Great little trail here in Denton, TX. This trail has lots of beautiful vegetation, and a wonderful prairie section of the trail accompanied by a nice hill for a great view. There are bikers on this trail regularly as well as people walking their dogs, but everyone has been friendly and polite. Some of the trails close throughout the year due to flooding from the wetlands portion of the trail so be prepared to skip a few short hikes.

a great trail, beware of snares near water towards the beginning of the trail, but there is a good variety of wildlife. it's also a great local trail for those who live in Denton without having to drive 30-60 minutes away. me and my labrador both love this trail

Nice short, shaded, and easy trail. There isn't really anything that stands out to me. I prefer riding my bike down this trail instead of hiking.

Went with my husband and daughter. Our 2 year old loved the playground, which was conveniently located right across from the restrooms. So grateful to have found this place on a hot summer day. There are a lot of non-paved trails that are great for biking and running but the main trail was paved and stroller/wheelchair friendly. This place kept us in a comfortable and welcomed mood. We usually don’t stay at parks for more than an hour since our daughter gets fussy easily and the heat usually kind of chases us away. Luckily, with all the cool shade from all the beautiful trees and the calm streams, we were comfortable enough to walk around for about an hour and a half. It was peaceful and I think it even makes people a lot more friendly.

Nice, easy, quiet trail with lots of shade and minimal elevation changes. Watch out for wasps attracted to sunscreen! Toilet facilities at far end of the loop. Almost a 5 mile trail. Cell reception very spotty.

Come here with the pups at least 3-4 times a week, before getting there they are already crying with excitement... needless to say they love it!

This is my favorite place to walk in Denton and most of Dallas. Very beautiful with lots of flowers, birds, wildlife. The trails are easy and well-maintained. The area shows off a couple of ecosystems such as wetland and grassland. And it's never been busy whenever I've visited.
Be aware that it gets quite muddy after a good rain. There's also cows that freely roam the area, so don't step in their huge scat piles!

Completed this hike in April 2018 and I don’t think anything can compare to the feeling of reaching Bright Angel Trailhead after hiking for 50 miles. We did a lot of research leading up to it with the help of the park rangers and the resources on the NPS website.

We got very lucky with the weather in April, but it’s important to know that it’s technically off-season so the water is shut off in certain places. Having a filter is a must! Our itinerary was South Kaibab trailhead to Cottonwood campground (Day 1, ~15 miles), Cottonwood to North Rim to Cottonwood (Day 2, ~15 miles), and Cottonwood to Bright Angel Trailhead (Day 3, ~16 miles). I also highly recommend hiking the extra distance (~4 miles there and back) to Bright Angel Point once you reach the North Rim trailhead. It will reward you with incomparable views of the canyon and it will be worth it, I promise!

Also, park your car at your finishing point (in this case, Bright Angel trailhead) or bring 2 cars. The last thing you’ll want to do is take a shuttle when you’re tired and sweaty!

44.7 miles completed in 29 hours 21 min. South Kaibab - North Kaibab - Bright Angel. Beautiful and very intense. Bucket list ✅

Had some really good sights me and my best friend enjoyed it a lot. Some of the trails were closed. Lots of beautiful wildflowers, frogs, and birds. Will definitely go back :) did have quite a bit of mud!

Do you like mud? Awesome! So do we! We enjoyed a 1h52m hike on the outer loop through all the spectacular zones. Our 3-yr old dachshunds were mudded up, but dont let that stop you from enjoying a really cool hike. Some elevation only in a few places, not continuous. Most of the hike is covered but wear sunblock and spray for the prairies and bog areas. Sufficient parking in several locations.

No restrooms, only a portable potty.

Please pick up after your pets (carry in, carry out).

Just walked it for the first time. Basically flat concrete path the whole way. I took my puppy with me. Saw a 6” turtle crossing the path and noticed a deer off in the distance.

Too many people on the concrete trails walking if the off road bike trails are closed!

Beautiful single track trail. A few views of the lake. Lots of shade!

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

Varied landscape through the park and a choice of concrete trail when it's just rained or dirt paths when the weather is good. You don't really have to know where you're going when you go down the natural trails as you will eventually find your way to the big concrete trail.
