it has a really bad feel to it not marked well the entrance looks like a gang spot. looks like a place that drug dealers go

Trails not properly marked. Could be confusing.

Really a good place to get onto a slightly technical trail close to the city, but not well marked at all.

With the exception of the trash surrounding the entire park, it was a lovely trail. The volunteers do a great job of keeping it clear and there were multiple small and steep inclines everywhere that definitely give you a decent workout. The trail is designed for bikers but there were multiple hikers out as well. The trails are not marked well and they all intertwine each other - I just used my AllTrails app to find my way through. They ask that hikers go counterclockwise but because they are not marked well and cross each other all over - that was impossible to follow. Wear decent hiking shoes as a lot of the trail is rock and tree roots- but it was a lot of fun. (Got lost and turned around a few times but did manage to get 6 miles in).

Needs more signs, boy oh boy did we get lost a few times.

Not a bad trail as long as you can get past the fear of the entrance. Bullet filled sign and garbage galore. This trail is a perfect spot for a horror movie. A lot of potential just needs a lot of TLC.

Poor trail signs and many loops with no clear directions. Could use some trail maintenance as well

I would not recommend this trail. You label directions are all on the floor. You will get lucky if you find at least 4 or 5. You will get lost after your in the middle of 3 or 4 cross ways.

Confusing trails that just cross over one another with poor signage. Spent half our time walking in circles while trying to avoid mountain bikers. Flat and boring, so not worth the drive out for us

the trails are not readily marked until about half way in, that means when you're trying to find your way out you get to walk in circles. there are many intersections that are not marked as well. the trails were all littered with trash and not spectacular views. easy walk

Easy hike and pretty views. Very quiet and not many people around. Only problem is none of the trails were marked and they all intersected with eachother. Very easy to get lost and walk in circles. Nice and close to downtown Dallas!
