Hit this trail today with buddies. Easy ride for most part. Few major road crossings, but overall a good experience. Appreciate the fact that it’s close to where I live and easy access.

Very easy bike trail but quite a few busy streets to cross if you want to end to end. Weekends obviously busier with lots of dog walkers, families with young cyclists that haven't been properly educated on trail rules. Easy, relaxing ride for all.

good, straight, clean, well protected at major and minor road crossing. summer, trees form a barrier, on a half segment, cooling shade and southerly strong winds.

Nice ride today. It was good to have a long trail and get some miles in. The scenery is interesting as you are entertained by local front lawn decor. The creeks and trees are pretty too. Only reason I would rate it as such is because of the amount of road crossings. Too many for my taste. I'll probably be back if I need a break from my normal trails.

I've ridden this from the trailhead near Hwy 820 to Grapevine lake there is only a small area where you have to leave the trail but they are in the process of building a park linking the trails through that area.

The trail is now linked to the Cottonbelt trail in Colleyville, making it a long trail. I have run 8 miles without reaching the end. It is a wonderful trail. There are a couple of large intersections but for the most part, there is little stopping. There is a soccer center in Colleyville with restrooms and good water fountains in case you run out of water. In the NRHs area, there are longer more open stretches with pretty scenery.
