Great trail. Rained the day before but it was sandy mud so not too bad. Incredible cedar forest camps between mile 4 and 5 for an overnight camp. Water was abundant after the rain. We backpacked and couldn’t get a fire started due to the rain with what we gathered.

LBJ National Grasslands is a National treasure. Great hiking trail, and careful horseback trail after any rain. Trails ate very well marked, terrain and scenery changes delightfully.

excellent trail for a hike looking for trickier trails. Theres good barking, but still easy to get off trail if you're not paying attention. in winter it's not accessible to horseback. great conditioning.

Great trail. Cut it in half because 11 year old we had in tow was getting tired. A few horseback riders on trail - all very polite.

Great trail. I thought it was well marked. Only one point did I have to use this app to find the direction the trail went.

It was a good trail. We had to pay $6 to park. There was no signs stating where to park so we just had to pick a grassy spot. It seemed like these trails were more “horse trails”. Everyone was on horses and my husband and I were the only ones hiking.

Beautiful trail run! Yes, it’s sandy in some areas but that was not a major factor. Various terrain types including a beautiful piney woods section. Well marked for the most part but was reassuring to have the AllTrails app tracking.

Great hike! Surprised by the pine wood forest and meadows in the DFW area. trail is used by horses, so can be torn up in spots. Definitely will do again.

Went on this hike loaded with packs, mostly as a training exercise for our summer hike. Thought we’d do it in two days, but the cold beer called at mile 5 and we went for it. Surprised my feet is all that hurts. Maybe pizza for dinner?!

Trail closed between miles 2 and 3 due to erosion. Poorly marked in spots between miles 3 to 7. Used connecty trail to cross from about mile 7 to get back on at around mile 21. Well marked returning from mile 21 to Tadra Point Trailhead

it's a nice hike, but the trail isn't very well-marked in places.

A good easy hike, I recommend camping in the Piney woods. A bit muddy but sometimes you gotta embrace the suck.

I only did a put 3 miles out of the total 12 and was not at all hard like it's rating. It was actually a little boring. I think it's probably a better horseback riding trail than a hiking one.

This was my second trip to LBJ Grasslands and I really loved hiking the Yellow Trail. The conditions were much better on this trip – – not nearly as much mud on the trail as last time – – but there are many places where the horse traffic has really chewed up the surface of the trail. It’s a mixed-use trail, so that’s not really surprising, you just have to be aware of it. The yellow trail seemed to have a greater variety of landscapes than the red trail. There’s a really beautiful pine grove at the north end of the trail, a great place to sit and have a snack and a drink and enjoy the sound of the breeze through the pine trees. I didn’t make it all the way around the loop, but with the shortcuts I took getting back to my car I still covered over 8 miles. I’m looking forward to a return trip so I can see the rest of the trail. BE AWARE: I saw some wild hogs on my way back to the car and would recommend being off the trails before sunset. They’re very aggressive and will attack if you spook them.

I mainly did this trail to test my knee, and to get out of the city. This trail did what I needed it to do. Nothing to challenging, I would not rate this as hard maybe moderate. Some context (I haven't hike a mile in over a year, had knee surgery 4months ago) I did just fine.

it was an easy trail. lots of the markers were knocked over and it was hard to find an entrance to the trail. might be better when the shutdown is over though honestly.

I really enjoyed the hike overall and will definitely be back. Beautiful area, super quiet and remote. One of the really cool things about this place is the way multiple trails intersect often so you can sort of make your own route. There are about 75 miles of trails here (not including the unmapped trails you find along the way) so you have almost unlimited route possibilities! The only reason I didn’t rate it higher is that the trail conditions were not great. There were some muddy patches—nothing I wasn’t expecting considering how much rain north Texas has received this fall—but the real problem was the way the surface was so uneven due to horse traffic. It was awful in many places and hard to navigate. I’ve been on mixed is trails before and have never seen anything like this. I’m sure it wouldn’t have been as bad if the ground wasn’t so soft. I left wondering if the Forest Service would usually have tried to alleviate that somewhat if they weren’t furloughed ... Looking forward to a return trip! PS: “Pro Tip” ... after your hike, go eat burgers at nearby Greenwood Grocery. A true country store with fantastic food and an atmosphere like Luckenbach back before everyone knew where it was.

Great trail with great views! The trail is marked very well so it is very easy to stay on track. Will definitely be visiting again soon!

I had the trail to myself on a December day. There are nice lake views. Going clockwise, the back half was quite slick despite no rain for several days. The mud stuck to my boots like no other.

Excellent trail, very well marked. We never saw another soul... had the whole thing to ourselves. Amazing foliage for North Texas in late fall.

Perfect weather for a hike: Clear skies, temp around 68 and breeze from the south. We hiked the yellow loop today. First time using the All trails app during a hike. Worked great!! The trails are very well marked by both posts and plastic streamers. Who ever hung the streamers was obviously on horseback as they are all in branches above the trail. Trail conditions are largely excellent. There are a few spots where the ground was muddy and was stirred up from horse traffic. Those spots are passable but slow you down a bit. There are several areas where the trails are very sandy. We had a some horse traffic today. I would warn all hikers to be on the look out for riders. We encountered some riders that were running the trails at a canter so if you're not watching for them they'll be on you quick. They at least slowed down once they saw us but there are blind corners so be aware. We ran into a very large buck about half way around. He was just 10 ft off the trail when he took off. That was the only wild life we saw. We'll definitely be back to hike the other trails.

I walked this on a grey day in November, but it was still pretty and allowed me to forget the Metroplex for a bit. The trail was well marked and easy to follow. I saw a few birds including some birds of prey eating a dead deer. The scenery consists of grasslands, stands of deciduous trees, farmland, and a lot of ponds. They were burning brush in areas when I hiked the trail. My GPS logged the whole loop at just over 15 miles. It took me about 4.5 hours.

Nice area, but not a lot of it shaded. The trails are marked, but you really have to pay attention or you easily end up on a cow path-there are cows meandering throughout.

Fortunately I had a route on my Endomondo app to follow. I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of shady areas throughout this hike. I really enjoyed it but it is quite sandy which caused a lot of extra strain on my feet/toes after about 7/8 miles. The piney wooded area was quite nice and we did see a number of campers there. The trail itself was pretty empty except for 1 man on horseback and another 2 men out hiking. I would say this is better for hiking and the sand would make it difficult to do any significant running but if you want to get some miles under your feet then this is a good trail.
