Activities include camping, picnicking, lake swimming, fishing, hiking, biking, nature study, boating, and water skiing.

Moderate trails, beautiful views. Make sure and bring water as you won't find any on the trail. Too many people hiking with aggressive dogs off leash and smoking on trails (lots of cigarette butts on trails, guess the recent fires didn't make an impact on them) It's a shame folks don't follow rules and put others and the area at risk.

A great workout. Fairly easy to follow. There are a couple trail forks that can be confusing but you are just walking around a big hill. So a mapping app on your phone will keep you on route. Took a while to understand the naming of the trails.
Lots to see. I love the sites along the trail that show how nature shapes our earth with wind and rain.
The trails are a workout. Take plenty of water. Be prepared. Be honest with yourself about your physical condition.

We enjoyed the hike as a family. We were able to borrow a junior pack for our son. made the hike fun as he looked for animal tracks and searched for birds.

Starting the hike from Bug Beach, the trail was full of tall weeds with burs that were completely covering our shoes and sticking into our skin between the tops of our hiking boots and knees. Less than 100 yards in we had to turn around. Maintaining the trail is a necessity for it to be usable for hikers. No wonder NO ONE was hiking the Possum Kingdom trails.

Compared to trails in Dallas, I'd rate these trails hard. The views were awesome and the hike was just the right amount of challenging.

Many beautiful views and the trail is very scenic. I liked the informational signs and the general upkeep of the trail. Went a few months ago with my GSD and had a pretty bad rattlesnake scare, so definitely keep an eye on and off the trail and especially on what are usually tree roots crossing the path.

Beautiful scenery. Saw several deer. The elevation is very gradual so it wasn't as tough as I thought it would be.

love these trails. They get the heart pumping and the scenery is some of the best in North texas.

Great trails, well blazed, great views, no crowds.
