Tips

Great for the Family! - Texas Master Naturalists maintain an Interpretive Center with numerous displays about the wildlife and plants in North Texas. The Interpretive Center is across the parking lot from the Visitors Center at the Isle du Bois entrance. Stay on established trails. Poison Ivy lurks near the edges of the trails. What to bring: * Camera * Binoculars * Proper Hiking gear (and food/water) if you plan to hit the trails. Mountain bike, boat, fishing gear, kayak if you are planning to enjoy all the fun at Ray Roberts Lake State Park. Hikers, campers, and other park visitors should be aware of the few venomous snakes native to the area. The two most common venomous snakes in our area are copperheads and cottonmouths (also known as water moccasins). Venomous snake bites are rare and generally happen because someone used poor judgment in footwear or behavior. Open shoes such as flip flops do not provide protection if you step on, or near, a venomous snake. These snakes are often out at night during the summer, so you should always use a flashlight when walking after dark. It is important to stay on marked trails and paths where you are less likely to encounter venomous snakes. Never stick your hands or feet into old logs, under rocks, or into any crevice that a snake might use for shelter. Venomous snakes that consider the park home are going to defend themselves if they feel threatened, so protect yourself by wearing the right shoes and paying close attention to the areas snakes frequent.

Even gravel from the trail head down about 4 miles to the road (where the red bridge is). Went in the winter and honestly not much look at.

In 2015, the section of the Greenbelt Trail from FM 428 to US Highway 380 was closed due to damage from floods. As of January 2021, TPWD has reopened a portion of the trail South of FM 428. Beginning at the 428 trailhead, you can hike roughly three miles south until you reach the scenic overlook from which you can see the city of Denton. My review focuses on the recently re-opened section of the trail. The trail itself is nothing impressive. It is a mostly flat trail with a combination of forests and grasslands. The trail starts out as a crushed gravel path, but eventually turns to dirt. If you are going to take the trail, it is worth your time to go all the way out to the scenic overlook.

It starts with flat Pasteur and kind of boring. But transforms to wilderness. Challenging as we go further with ditches and swamps.

First time here. It was a little warmer that we expected and the lack of shade was a minor issue. Cloudy skies helped to hide the sun from time-to-time.

Quiet trail. Went Sunday morning at church time (pro tip). People fishing at the duct. Teenagers goofing. Took my 5 month old puppy. She picked a bottle cap up on her way back to the ride. Typical behavior for her however beware of litter. Not a lot but there. There was police presence in the parking lot.

Nice, if unspectacular trail. Nice and quiet and lots of open space, flat and even ground - ideal if you want it easy. I went on a weekday and only saw 7 other people, I expect it would be busy on a weekend though. NB: the southern half of the trail (south of FM428) is closed due to flood damage and is likely to stay so for some time given that info is now on the printed maps at the trailhead! Also no facilities or payment ($7) possible on the trail itself. Saw cottonmouth on the trail in the woods so take care.

Started at 7:00 to beat the heat. Easy trail with crushed grave & very flat. Did the out & back from Hwy 455 to Hwy 428. Nice walk.

I checked to see if the 380 trailhead was open and it is not. You can’t start from the south end of the trail.

Bike and hike this trail a few times a week. The scenery is great. Various wildlife active throughout the year. Lots of armadillos in the spring along with wildflowers. Still green even in the August heat. Starting near the dam will provide about a mile of shade before the trail opens up to the sky.
