I have to agree that’s not worth 7 bucks park admission for just hiking there! It’s a ok trail. Bought park membership a year ago and went few times. didn’t renew.

First time coming to this park and I was pleasantly surprised for how small it appears on the map. The trail is paved, partly shaded some locations with scattered benches to rest if needed. There’s a dirt road that leads North towards the lake about half way through the trail that takes you to beautiful meadows where I was able to see deer and a few hawks. Can also access mountain biking trails from it if your looking to walk/bike through the woods more. Highly recommend this trail for anyone.

Good trail for people with Baby Strollers. Fully Paved. Good views of the lake near the starting. Saw a few deers on the way.

The comment 'Nice trail for a pleasant stroll' is right on. Pretty park. Not too secluded and you will likely not find much solitude. But it is a nice place.

Nice trail for a pleasant stroll. Not challenging at all, since much of it is paved. Plenty of nice scenery, and quite a bit of wildlife if you go early in the morning or late in the evening.

Just walked it for the first time. Basically flat concrete path the whole way. I took my puppy with me. Saw a 6” turtle crossing the path and noticed a deer off in the distance.

This is a great trail. I've hiked and biked this trail multiple times and each time is just as enjoyable as the first. It's a paved loop with wildlife to view. I've seen armadillos, deer, owls, etc...

45-minutes from north Ft Worth, it's our go-to when we don't have time to go too far, but want a nice walk. Sure it gets busy during the summer months because it is shaded, but it's well worth the time. We take our dachshunds and they have a great time.

Love this trail. The one on this app is definitely not the right trail, but the park overall has good markers. Flew my drone over a small little island and the park is just plain beautiful in the mornings. Very peaceful, and be careful when driving since there are lots of deer here.

At the risk of being picky, the map of the track associated with this trail is definitely not the Lost Pines trail. This track is for the Randy Bell Scenic Trail, a 2.2 mile concrete paved loop. Lost Pines is very near the park entrance and is a shorter loop. Also, some reviewers of this trail seem to be talking about the mountain bike trails in the park. I believe those trails are either the Jordan Park trail (going north) or the Elm Fork Trail going south under FM 455 and onto the green belt trail. If you are interested in the Randy Bell trail, I have asked that it be posted as a new trail.

This is a great paved path for families to either walk or bike on while visiting Lake Ray Roberts. We did the trail on our bikes because the DORBA trail was still closed because of the amount of moisture. The trail has some elevation gain and loss to it and winds amongst the trees, There are multiple places where you could access a bathroom if necessary with kids and multiple locations to fill up on water along this path as well. The path goes right by the two camping areas, so if you are camping you can easily access the trail without having to get into the car again. This trail is very close to the DORBA trail but it is not the same trail system. You will not have to share the trail with all the mountain bikes, and I think that many of the reviews are referring to a different trail system.

Excellent trail for mountain biking. Plenty of up and downhill sections. Beware of large rocks / tree roots and tight spaces between trees, but overall fun trail.

I love this trail. It is a DORBA maintained trail for mountain biking and it is challenging. Lots of climbs, rocks, roots to work with. I run this trail and really get my nature fix out there. Lots of woods and have seen many deer while running. Beautiful place.

Have been running here trails A, B, C, D, and E for a while. Good place to get lost and just run. Good technical sections and some fast sprints as well. A good trail to come run any day! Lots of deer to race with!

We recently start hiking as a family. We really enjoyed Ray Roberts. Great for kids and found some beautiful smaller trails that took us to some beaches. There was a lot more to explore that we didn't take this trip but will in the future. We came across other hikers and bicyclist. Saw several birds, mostly wooded area.

Cool trail. A,b,c,e are pretty simple, D is punishing! Crazy rock climbs, insane gardens. Kept running up on big groups of deer which was cool. 7$ to get in the park.

If this is the actual mountain bike trail it is actually an interesting ride. It is an out and back. A and B trails are a nice short little rides leading to C with a few climbs. D trail opens in to several climbs with some pretty technical rock gardens. If you are not a pretty experienced rider I would probably take the D bypass. E trail is not more than A B or C. The lake front near by has a nice beach with showers area so pack swim trunks for a nice after ride.

There are several different trails you can take. Some have concrete sidewalks that is awesome for WHEELCHAIRS. Very well maintained. There are also dirt paths used for walkers and bikers. Both paths crisscross so you can meet up with anyone in your group as the paths crosses.

The nature trail is well marked within a mature forest with glades. Interesting mixture of native species. Easy Other trails in the park are equally beautiful, but with varying degrees of difficulty from easy to moderate. 27 miles of trail overall, although some are not well marked.
