To all you hikers that keep complaining, take a minute to think who maintains the trail.. (DORBA).
Then take another minute to figure out what does that mean. Hikers are more than welcome. but please no matter the park you go to. always stop at the trailhead and READ THE RULES!!!
most trails will ask hikers to go in the oposite direction so you can spot bikers from a distance and move aside.
thank you all for understanding.
have a great day!!

Nice hiking trail for 20 min outside dallas. Mostly shaded which was nice. Rocky so I had to put boots on my dog. Can’t complain otherwise! Very little bike traffic although I came out on a weekday during the day.

Awesome park. We had a blast. It was our first time on the trail and we had no problems following the trail. The trails are clearly marked and no sand spurs.

Amazing run I was sore for a week

Bike friendly. If hiking, be sure to go in the opposite direction because trail is narrow & bikers have city manners. Decent trail for inner city hiking. Easy to moderate

This was fun. We cut through about halfway to leave due to daylight hours. I wouldn’t rate it as hard the 11 yo and 7 yo did it easily but fun for sure

I can’t wait to bring my bike next time I visit. Great for an inner city hike but this place is for the bikes.

We didn't find the trial very challenging. We started on the red/beginner loop and the path was very rocky and required you to walk one person in front of the other. After one hour we switched to the blue/difficult trail. This trail is probably great for biking, with lots of dips and tricks available. But it takes you out by the road from which you are only separated by a metal fence. There is a very short bridge to walk over which was a nice surprise but then you walk by the stream which sounds great in theory, but the stream is filthy with trash so it was not enjoyable. The blue was a bit more difficult but still very easy, there wasn't much change in terms of elevation. Overall not our favorite walk/hike in Dallas.

Definitely one of the best trails I've had the pleasure of hiking. It was evidently a trail meant predominantly for biking, but it was still a great hike. Lots of slopes, twists and turns, wobbly rock paths, and cliffs; careful footing is a must at some parts.

Trash isn't really an issue if you stay close to the trail and behind caution tape. Somewhat off-trail you'll find a small clearwater river; the litter gets worse as you travel downstream.

The stream is definitely the most beautiful part of the trail, but might require some hands-on vertical climbing to get in and out of.
Whether or not that's a perk is up to you!!

This one is awesome, I've been checking different ones, and this one is very maintained. Challenging loops.

I had a blast at this park and it was no joke they labeled it hard! Great hills, rocks, cliffs and scenery! take water and a bike helmet!

too many spiders across the trails. I don't know if it was because I was stoned, but it felt like I was in a scary movie with how many fucking spiders there were.

Great trail. You don't think you are in Dallas.

Trails range from 2 miles 12 miles. Dirt path, plenty of tree coverage to escape the city. Took my dog, and had a nice walk.

I think other reviewers have mentioned this, but it is definitely more of a biking trail. Everyone is polite, but make sure you go in the opposite direction. I used to walk my dogs out here; you will need to move out of the way frequently, if you're walking on the weekend. It will be packed.

Pros: lots of variety in difficulty and trail distances. People are very polite and friendly. Very well maintained trails. They have a couple of Porta-potties at the trail start. Picnic tables. Great shade because of all the trees. Convenient location.

Cons: Signage isn't great, distance markers would be helpful. There are Stray dogs, but I know people report these and they are usually picked up Promptly. Parking is tight, and you will likely park on the street if you go on a weekend.

Very good trail if you live in Dallas.

One of my favorites. Different types of trails, hills, rivers, lots of bikers, all nice and friendly. Would be helpful with signs to/from entrance, certain trials.

if they had some signs so I didn't have to use Google maps to get back to my car that would be excellent, otherwise I loved the trail

This is a nice trail designed for mountain bike riders. We hiked it for about an hour loop on an early Sunday afternoon in the middle of July at 100 degrees. There is lots of shade. The trail leads through wooded and open terrain. don't be shy to take the red trail, it goes through a slightly more hilly terrain which makes for a more interesting hike. If you are lucky, like we were, there won't be any mountain bikers. Due to the trail being narrow you can't go next to each other. You can reach the trail head within a few minutes from downtown Dallas just passed the Zoo.

Decent trail, better if you follow the red arrows

Sunday, April 10, 2016

I definitely had a good workout on the trail, I go hiking regularly. I would definitely agree with the other commenters it's more of a biking trail than hiking and many times I found myself trying to get my dogs out of the way of bikers, everyone was super friendly but I still felt like I unconvinced a lot of people. Anyway, all in all it was a good time!

cool trail. better for biking than hiking but still expansive; the terrain is challenging at times, great for exercise
