Very well maintained trail system. The markings are very visible and correct.

A lot of wild live present- today we had 2 water moccasins cross the trail at different points within feet of us.

Had 4 dogs with us that enjoyed all the smells.

I do wish other dog owners were more considerate and pick up- it is a wildlife area but get your dog waste off the trail.

I love this trail! Mostly shaded not a lot of traffic when I’ve hiked there. Dog friendly and easy to find

good change of pace on views on trail.

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.

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

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!

Drove 17 minutes to find out it's closed off idk if there is another way to get in but the way the GPS took me it was closed I was sad I was looking forward too this trail :(

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).

For a great hike take the horse trail (entrance on the right hand side of the parking lot) from the FM428 entrance. Great low water crossings and lots of tree covered dirt trails.

Paved trail that connects to other paved trails through Carrollton, good for biking.

I took my German Shepard out here to burn some energy and we both loved it. The trails are beautiful. Had one issue.... a ladies dog attacked mine for no reason. Keep your dog on a leash if it isn’t friendly towards other animals.

I enjoyed this trail for running or just out walking your dog

so I drive on 380 every day I saw the gate was unlocked went in and they a new bathroom was constructed and the contractor who is working on the construction said that they are pouring concrete on Tuesday yay!

Very easy, flat trail. There are other connecting routes in the middle and some off-shoots that are not depicted on this map, including one on the far West side that leads to the confluence. If it's rained recently, some trails will be impassable. I hike this trail regularly with my dog and have seen all kinds of creatures, including deer, owls, cranes, one bald eagle sighting back towards the pond, a few snakes, wild hogs, and most recently, a herd of curious cattle that got loose from someone's nearby land (I think they've since been retrieved).

It’s a great and pretty easy trail.

It’s was a very pleasant walk with my dog.

Love the solitude.

Nice little loop.
Trail was pleasurable and well maintained.
Will be hiking again just for the shear convenience.

First trail I’ve been to since moving to Denton and it was very nice

Walked up to the trail map past the gate, looks like they were trying to work on it now the gunning of the trail is a bunch of tractor ruts from all the mud in the last few months. The trail is definitely closed from this section, total waste of a good morning.

1/2 of this "trail" as they call it, ( it's a one lane gravel farm road ) is closed for repair (9-13-17) so it's only 4 miles long, one mile of it is in the shade, the rest is in the full sun, it is all flat, you only see the "creek" ( trendy river) for 1% of the trail, i did see 2 armadillos & a squirrl , fine for a mountain bike but i wouldn't bring your road bike on it .

Dope.

Short 3.3 mile trail, easy, overgrown, muddy.

Easy trail - perfect for beginners and family. Saw several doves, heron, egrets, grackles and a woodpecker. Counted 16 turtles by pedestrian bridge over creek near Furneaux.

easy trails. Good for seeing waterfowl

Walked this trail for the first time last weekend. I've liven in Denton all my life and never knew it was there. Walked about 3.5-4 miles with friends and their kiddos in back carriers. Beautiful scenery and the trails were very easy.

Per the website parts of the trail is currently open. "The FM 380 section of the Greenbelt Corridor is closed. The hard surface trail of the Greenbelt Corridor between Hwy 428 and Hwy 455 is open, but the equestrian trail remains closed. Work continues to repair severe erosion issues and washed out bridges.
The section of the equestrian trail from 455 (Elm Forks) South to 380 is closed.
Please contact the park for more information". http://tpwd.texas.gov/state-parks/ray-roberts-lake

I love this trail! Have hiked here in all seasons. Usually muddy, but always lots of wildlife! Very little traffic. Peaceful and beautiful.
