Not too long, and hard to get lost. I felt safe going solo.

Did this trail while on a weekend visit to Fort Worth. This is a gem of a trail. Lots of changes in elevation which makes it challenging. Did this on a Sunday and started about 11. It was HOT!!! And there are quite a few exposed stretches where there is no shade, so a hat and sunscreen are a must! Not terribly rocky compared to some hikes I have been on in Austin. Saw a buck and doe as well as a couple armadillo. Would recommend!

This trail is a tough one. Although the grade is moderate, the sheer distance of going down and back again is intense. Its elevation varies every 100yds or so from forest basin to top of rocky hills. It’s beautiful view and path that runs along side a ridge the whole time really makes you feel like your somewhere in the mountains or higher up then you are. Make sure you bring water, start the trail early in the morning and you really need good hiking shoes on this one. Average fitness level or higher. Have a great hike!

A very fun trail Close to Dallas Metro Plex and had a surprising amount of up/down climbs that were not long but steep. Looks like scouts over the years have put in railroad ties and walkway bridges over streams. Nice touch to keep it interesting. Views of lake are nice and some great north Texas rural terrain and views. Only downside is that you can hear the nearby highway from everywhere so you lose some of the "out in the wilderness" feel. But definitely recommend.
