Great trail, wasn't too crowded, took some detours along the yellow trails to the spillway. Trails were well marked. Will definitely go back.

This is a great loop if you’re training for a trail race or backpacking in elevation. Lots of up & down with some slick, rocky sections. Also a couple great opportunities to get lost in meandering scribbles in the woods that make absolutely no sense and reminded me of a children’s board game. Good times!

I hiked the whole trail on January 26, which amounted to 11.4 miles as recorded by the AllTrails app. The trail is rated as "difficult" on AllTrails, but it's really on difficult because of its length. There are only a few sections with a bit of elevation change, and there aren't any technically difficult areas. The winding part is tricky to follow, so keep an eye on the trail, and ideally follow the AllTrails app if you want to adhere to the trail. Otherwise, you can easily find yourself skipping parts. Part of the winding section can be tricky if there is water flowing in the river, so it might not be possible to follow the trail exactly. If you can't, you can complete the section immediately south of the lake by crossing over the road at the end of the hike, instead of doing it at the beginning. All in all it's a good trail in good condition to get the miles in. It's not as scenic as some others, and not particularly challenging, but definitely worth it if you are in the area.

We hiked the entire trail system on 1/13/19 as part of training for a rim to rim Grand Canyon hike in April. We loved the trail as a whole. We were very happy to have some decent hill training so close to Dallas. It’s a little confusing combining all of the zig zaggy shorter loops but for the most part, we loved the experience. It was a perfect 37 degrees when we started. We only encountered a handful of hikers throughout the trail. We will be back and combine some of the shorter trails for increased mileage.
