HikingGreat!

Located in Flower Mound, this is one great hiking trail. Shared with MTG riders but safe. Lots of shade. Several looping options. We did the 5-mile loop. Not very crowded on a late Sunday morning. Some good views of the lake. I would say mild to moderate in intensity. Well marked. Some areas pass through backyards of houses but not an issue. Only one way for MTBs but hikers can go in either direction (although signs say one way for both). Will hit it again for a longer loop or maybe on the bike next time. Definitely one of the better ones in the DFW metroplex.

My favorite hike in Dallas so far. You need to pay $10 to park at the beginning of the trail but it’s well worth it. I walk around 1.5 miles out and let my dog in the lake and then turn around from there. Super shady and easy! Watch out for glass at some spots.

I was a little annoyed that I had to pay $10 for the entrance fee, but the trail was well worth it. Great trails, pretty scenery. Lots of bikers going really fast, so listen and pay attention so you can move out of their way. Very beautiful

It’s all good just the trail is shared for both hiker and biker. Hiker needs to pay more attention when bikers is behind. They ride so fast.

HikingGreat!

Great trail! You can park and pick up a trailhead at Murrell Park with no fee. LOTS of mountain bikers, so if hiking, would recommend walking towards the bikers so you can see them coming and step out of the way in time. Most of the trailheads have a “one way” signage, and I gather that direction is for bikers. So best to walk against the “one way” traffic!

If you are gonna ride by yourself, take your time. It's technical in a lot of places. And it's not the most intuitive as for finding your way around. But it has lots of potential. I'll be back when it's cooler. arrivederci
