Trail is well used and easy to navigate. I found the bike signs amusing because they are not your traditional bike navigational signs. There are approximately seven miles of trail, divided into four uniquely named loops that are relatively descriptive of the trail features. My children mountain bike and were able to ride the trails labelled as "easy" by TPWD. Portions of the trail are well shaded and it is clear which segments are more heavily used. Great for hiking also. I was able to bypass the kids on foot since I didn't ride or run on this visit.

It’s was very easy and nice to walk. There are some parts by the lake that were a bit gross. Definitely want to camp their sometime and go on the lake.

we may have gone a wrong way but it was really short.

Kristen and dogs and I spent 1 day hiking almost every trail in park. Maps are barely ok. Some trails highly confusing. Lake was pretty in a north Texas way. Lots of vultures in trees. Trails go under those trees and ammonia smell from droppings was highly unpleasant.

Good trail.

Easy! Was able to do all the trails in a couple hours. Not well marked! Didnt see much wildlife and on parts of the trail I could hear road traffic.

Probably great for families with kids. Lots of picnic areas and camping spots along the lake. I was looking for something a bit more challenging and remote.

Bonham State Park is a fun and easy trail. It would be the perfect location for easy camping or one to bring children along. Portions of the trails were flooded. There were hunters near by and it was a little unnerving to hear gunfire. Lots of trees- perfect for climbing. Dogs allowed on a leash. There is a neat abandoned water tower that we explored along one of the trails. The front desk staff were friendly and can tell you all about the history of the park.

Great all weather hiking with coyote, pig and deer sightings. Lots of birds. Cedar woods with few open spaces. The trails cross and records each other quickly enough you can get a little dizzy.

Several old CCA stone meeting areas gave some interest as well as some old farm detritus.

This is a great hike. Trails are well maintained and fun for the family. Recently, they have started to rebuild the old stone picnic tables and chimneys that are just off the trails but hidden in the woods. Would be great for a hike in & then some family time.

This is one of my favorite trails. Get an early start to see all the wildlife this park has to offer. Deer, beaver, and rabbits are just a few of what we saw. well shaded trails.

Most of the trail is in a wooded area covered by trees. It was about 90 degree temperature when we hiked and this kept things cool. We heard birds chirping and at times the trail hugged the lake for a view of the water. There were a total of 8 bikers and we hiked 6.25 miles. We never passed a biker, we only saw them in a distance. It says that there is a total of 8 miles and somewhere else I read it says that there is 11 miles. The trails criscrossed maybe because they are trying to squeeze every mile of the land available making it confusing at times. I don't see 11 miles. I see more like 8. It was an easy hike nothing hard at all. Must check in and pay a fee for parking.
