I’m pretty sure this is a golf course now and not open to the public. Maybe I missed the actual trail?

Pretty creek side trail inside heavily residential area; wide paved trail suitable for walking, biking, dog walking. Parking at the golf place on Teel Pkwy. We saw a hawk and an egret along the water.

Great short-distance trail and view. No parking at the 3 entry points I've been through. There's definitely a lot of dog/cayote pooh like another reviewer said. overall I will still keep going. Hopefully I will find a parking lot soon.

great trail

This was a good paved trail. Lot of people walking, running, and cycling. Very populated.

I agree with previous review. Paved, but nice views I have also seen the poop on the trail. I was initially annoyed, but realized later that it was from coyote, not pet owners. Coyote was observed in narrow green space by soccer field too. Unfortunately this is not a good place for adult bikers. The ride is made too dangerous by kids and dogs not kept to the right.

This trail is a hidden gem in suburbia. Though paved, it offers nice views of some ponds and creeks, and a chance to observe wildlife (birds, frogs, squirrels, dragonflies, etc).

Frisco-Great job in saving some land for hiking trails. Frisco-Shame on you for destroying the natural beauty of that land by covering the paths in concrete.

Wide concrete pathways with several surface level bridges over creeks and near several small ponds. There are a few slopes - path is gently graded throughout. Path is mostly lined with trees and bushes. Good for waking, jogging, biking, stroller waking and wheelchair use.

Pretty but I prefer to hike on dirt not cement also lots of dog poo on trail.

This trail would be really nice but for the following: * Excessive dog feces throughout * Trash litter everywhere, and * Dog owners not having their dogs on leases.

Being just shy of 2 miles from Wakeland over to Teel (not doing the loop part) has been a great trail while training for a half marathon as we build up mileage. It allows for parking at Wakeland and then we run down and back until we hit our miles. Would be nice to have some lights that cover the trail at night. Those kind on the ground that shone just a little so it doesnt impact wildlife bit gives enough light to feel safe running in the dark.

under construction. paved trails. definitely has potential!

Tue Jul 05 2016

We walked the trail as long as we could stand the humidity and it was a decent trail. It will probably be a lot better once the construction is complete. There was a lot of trash and debris around the trail, which was disheartening. It also isn't a loop trail.

There is where to park to access the trail!
