A great day to hike, especially considering its still summer in DFW. This trail provides a small secluded wilderness inside the Metroplex. It was great to get away from traffic and crowds for a few hours. You'll encounter mountain bikers, but they are also friendly and gladly share the trail. (Walk the trail in the reverse order to see the bike traffic as it comes toward you.)

We usually hit this trail a couple times a week because it's close to home and great for getting in some quick exercise! It's a DORBA trail, so there are always mountain bikers, but they are very considerate. We hike the trail backward so we can see them coming. The lower part of loop 3 (and some of loop 2) is flat and, in the summer, bordered by tall weeds. This makes for a very hot, airless trek. Take plenty of water, and bug spray if hiking in the morning or early evening hours. The mosquitos can get pretty bad. With sections like Goat Killer, Chutes and Ladders and Fred's Revenge, you know it's going to be a fun trail. (Beware, although a lot of people take their dogs, there are big thorns on the trails. I've had one go through the bottom of a shoe and into my foot. Also, being near the water, watch for snakes. A friend's dog was bit by a water moccasin.)

Hiked only a mile in because I had my 2 year old son with me. Overall it's a very nice trail, with a very noticeable parking area for the trailhead. It's mostly used by bikers, because we saw quite a few while on the hike. Once you get into the main trail area, it opens up to views of Denton Creek with some dips and rises. Still much more of the trail to be explored, so I'll be back.
