Great trail with plenty of inclines, declines and switchbacks to make things interesting. I hiked the 11-ish miles from Twin Coves park entrance to Rockledge park. Started early and the trail was mostly empty. But once I reached the MADD shelter around 9am, the amount of bike traffic really picked up. I had a bike passing me every 1-2 mins, though most of them were very courteous and gave me a verbal heads up, and how many were following them. Do not recommend headphones on this trail.
Trail is very well maintained, and offers some amazing views of the lake (especially the beginning and end of the trail).

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

Nice trail to hike, unfortunately too many bikers!

Nice clean trail. Kid and pet friendly. There were. Lot of bike riders, but they were all friendly and gave warnings when passing.

Definitely an off-road biking trail. Don't wear headphones, you need to hear bikers coming up. Most will call out, but newbies won't. Traffic direction is designated for bikes, I was told hikers can opt to go against traffic if they chose to.

Good views, nice trails. I will go back.

Five dollar fee at park trailhead.

Fun trail with a bit of terrain change but not very diverse in scenery. Perfect for spring or early fall hikes, a nice reprieve from the city and not bad considering there aren’t tons of developed trail systems in the area. Be advised that this is a shared path. Watch out for a multitude of mountain bikers, many of whom think they are riding in the X-Games and don’t bother to announce themselves and expect you to move out of the way for them.

Nice trail to run - great views - you will be sharing the trail with bikers also . But everyone very pleasant.

one of my favortie dfw trails

A nice, winding trail, however hikers are out of place here. Every two or three minutes I was hopping off the trail to let bikers pass.

Great trail, definitely moderate. Be prepared to constantly dodge mountain bikers, most are nice enough to let you know they're coming but not all of them are that considerate and its not a loop so they're behind you on the hike back. Headphones not recommended because you really need to be aware of them on the blind curves.

One of my favorite trails to hike! Just make sure to pack lots of water in the summer and avoid high noon.

Actually more like 21-22 miles in total now.

The trail was great! a little dusty but not so sandy that you lose traction. There were a few areas that were difficult to navigate on a rigid frame, most of the difficulty was encountered on loop 6 where the boulders were more prevalent. The trail is moderately shaded, and runs along the shoreline with some waterway crossing. This trail would be great for trail running, or hiking. There are many options to exit the trail which provides the ability to tailor your mileage to your liking.

Nice morning hike on Northshore Trail loops 2, 3, & 4 Murrell Park to Rockledge Park). Cloudy conditions and a few light sprinkles make it comfortable and trails were in great shape. Quite a few mountain bikers to step aside for and a few trail runners, but not too bad. We clocked the distance being a little further on other apps than the All Trails app - 10.1 miles vs. 9 miles.

The North shore Trail isn't challenging but it is a really nice and well kept up trail.

Road sections 1, 5, 6, and 7 this past weekend during the Xterra Rock Dallas triathlon. 13.1 mile ride total. pretty fast, flowing single track overall, but watch out for some of the rock sections. Traction pretty loose in sections with the sandy soil.
