Great trail for hiking and trail running! Good elevation changes and scenery. The trail was very busy today but it's Saturday and the ideal weather so I'm not surprised.

Pretty crowded, folks had competing boom boxes to really make it feel like the outdoors. Good hike though regardless

Since it has rained it was muddy. Rocks were slick. I challenged myself to do it though.

Definitely a workout if you’re used to Texas’ flat terrain. Beautiful trail with fragrant cedars and frequent lookout spots.

In search of fitness today. Found it on this trail. Steady climbing hills, great tree coverage, and well marked trails. Pretty good little hike. Pretty. Good.

It was a fun hike, but it would be even better in spring or autumn—best hike in DFW by far.

I’ve taken this trail and it’s pretty cool. I go between 7:30- 7:45 AM, weekly. It’s not very crowded on the trails. Don’t let the parking scare you. Everyone I’ve met in passing on the trail takes precautions while wearing or mask or not. Enjoy the fresh air, bring your AirPods and go.

I didn’t actually get to hike this trail because IT. WAS. PACKED. Oh my goodness...my husband and I have never seen a trail so busy during COVID. Cars were lined up down the street at 7:30am, so it made us too wary to even try and hike because we don’t want to be around that many people right now. Bummer.

Loved this trail! Arrived around 7:30am on a Sunday and there was a decent amount of ppl there. Parking attendants were great to get you into a spot as fast as possible. Trail was clean and well maintained. Great elevation changes! Stairs, bridges, etc. Lots of shade. I’ll definitely be back.
