Nearby attractions include Eisenhower Birthplace State Historic Site; Bonham State Park; Lake Texoma; the Grayson County Frontier Village, a rustic 19th century structure and museum; and the Hagerman National Wildlife Refuge with 11,300 acres of land and water known as a haven for migrating and wintering waterfowl.

entrance was $5 x adult, trail was rocky and pretty easy, clear signs and maps, lovely scenery overall

Great hiking trail. Would rate as moderate in difficulty. Most of the trail has a tree canopy over it. There are points where the trail continues after road crossing. Trail is well-marked and several spots along the trail over spectacular views of Lake Texoma. There are areas with picnic tables if you want to pack a lunch. There are bathrooms that are accessible at a few points on the trail. Hiked in early October and it was a perfect time.

One of the best hikes within a 1 1/2 hours of DFW. Some decent terrain, but nothing too strenuous. Despite the description, it is not a loop. Check your dog for ticks - mine picked one up here in the dead of winter.

I have been here a few times this week. Love the views and the terrain. Down side is they are not loops. But the views make up for it.

On a cooler day or early in the morning this would have been a great hike. The trail is very hilly and rugged with just enough challenge to make it worth the drive. Hiking shoes are more appropriate then runners for this trail. I will be back on a cooler day in the fall.

This was a trail in the same was that the Dallas North Tollway is a trail. It was a paved road that at times meanders through trees. This was the second leg of an overnight hike/camp in Eisenhower State Park, and a very disappointing way to conclude our weekend.

My husband and I went camping last weekend there. The trails are not hard, just long. No loops, overall the views are beautiful, the hike was great. There were few people on the trails saturday and none on Sunday. I enjoyed the hike:)

Great hiking place! It's probably the hardest hike around here, but I'm just starting and it was doable. Great views with water all around. Thankful for clear signage. Only a couple people on the trail on a Saturday at 9am. It is $5 per person honest system at entrance.

Great trails with water all around. Very well marked, shaded and low traffic.

Not a bad

I love the view of sailboats on the lake from the hike. I would not classify it as hard. It is well maintain making it easy to follow. Bring your swimsuit and take in the lake too.

Have walked this trail many times. It's a really good prep for mountain hikes.

Hiking this trail was a nice way to end 2016. A moderate trail through a beautiful park. Several scenic points and plenty of space to hike. Hiked from point 3 to point 12 and then walked back along the campground road.

Ike is a fun trail with some modest changes in elevation. I'd rate it as moderate but there are some gully crossings that can be hazardous when slick. Good chance of spotting deer early or late. Thick forest keeps you out of the wind most of the time.

Really nice trail. Mixed terrain and scenic views of the lake map of the trail from the park office states 3.2 miles. Id rate it as easy to moderate. Excellent quick daytime getaway!!!
