I forgot to start recording at the beginning. We rode from the Vietnam Memorial to the west end of the trail in Mineral Wells and back, except we rode up the hill beyond our start point, up over the highway, then back down to the war memorial lot. About 10.5 miles total. It was a very nice ride, easy trail, it's paved once you get to the east side of town all the way to the trailhead on the west side. Most of the roads you cross are not busy. Lots of nature along the trail.

Considering it was still winter, the weather was awesome and the trail was in great shape. I met some interesting people and had some great trailside conversations. I would recommend both this trail and the Trinity Trail in Fort Worth.
