WalkingGreat!

Great trail for Dallas. All kids, 5-10yrs made it and we enjoyed sitting by the lake on the rocks. Not sure I’d go in high season and you do share small stretches of the trail with bikers but all we’re polite and paused.

Overall, it was a nice enough trail, but the constant stream of mountain bikers going at high speed ruined the effect and got pretty old, real quick.
