Great trail, definitely moderate. Be prepared to constantly dodge mountain bikers, most are nice enough to let you know they're coming but not all of them are that considerate and its not a loop so they're behind you on the hike back. Headphones not recommended because you really need to be aware of them on the blind curves.

One of my favorite trails to hike! Just make sure to pack lots of water in the summer and avoid high noon.

The trail was great! a little dusty but not so sandy that you lose traction. There were a few areas that were difficult to navigate on a rigid frame, most of the difficulty was encountered on loop 6 where the boulders were more prevalent. The trail is moderately shaded, and runs along the shoreline with some waterway crossing. This trail would be great for trail running, or hiking. There are many options to exit the trail which provides the ability to tailor your mileage to your liking.

Nice morning hike on Northshore Trail loops 2, 3, & 4 Murrell Park to Rockledge Park). Cloudy conditions and a few light sprinkles make it comfortable and trails were in great shape. Quite a few mountain bikers to step aside for and a few trail runners, but not too bad. We clocked the distance being a little further on other apps than the All Trails app - 10.1 miles vs. 9 miles.

Would have given it 5 had there not been so many trails at some parts to confuse you. Overall it was fun.

Road sections 1, 5, 6, and 7 this past weekend during the Xterra Rock Dallas triathlon. 13.1 mile ride total. pretty fast, flowing single track overall, but watch out for some of the rock sections. Traction pretty loose in sections with the sandy soil.
