One of our favorite local hikes, but it has become trash-filled recently.

Not a good walking trail in flip flops

My favorite place in the area for a short run. I usually do the loop that you walk in from toward the back of the parking lot - think it’s about 1.7 miles total. Well-maintained and definitely makes me feel like I’m not in DFW!

Nice mostly-wooded loop. DORBA keeps the trail well-maintained.

To all you hikers that keep complaining, take a minute to think who maintains the trail.. (DORBA). (YES, IT COSTS BOTH MONEY TO BUY TOOLS AND LOTS OF VOLUNTEER HOURS TO KEEP THE TRAILS TIDY) Then take another minute to figure out what does that mean. Hikers are more than welcome. but please no matter the park you go to. always stop at the trailhead and READ THE RULES!!! most trails will ask hikers to go in the oposite direction so you can spot bikers from a distance and move aside. thank you all for understanding. have a great day!!

Did the North Loop first so in comparison this was really boring. It’s a nice trail for a walk very even and maintained, but not challenging or extraordinary.

We had an awesome time exploring this trail. There were a lot of bikers but still good for hikers too. Lots of pretty scenery and some interesting obstacles to maneuver. It’s not the most child friendly trail, but we managed!

One of my favorite mountain biking trails that offers a good mix for hiking as well. The south side has very little elevation change while the north side offers more elevation change. Don't forget your bug spray, some areas are heavily infested with mosquitos.

I followed the directions from this app to get here and it led me no where so I got upset. I looked it up on google and it was about 11 minutes away from where this app led me. Once you get there it is a great running place not to hard. Wouldn't go alone if you get scared easy but had some nice views!

Approximately 13 miles of trail, can be a little confusing at first if you aren't sure of the loop system. Trail was overgrown in some areas. Pretty decent trail for being in the city. Practically no elevation change.

Just moved here from SoCal and boy, have I realized I was spoiled. But, I found this little trail close to my new home in Garland and checked it out. Rowlett Park, I gotta say, I wasn't expecting much, but I had a lot of fun. There's a lot more territory to cover, than maps and guides lead you to believe. It was a beautiful day to be outdoors, much less on a mountain bike. This will be a regular ‘go-to’ spot, for sure.

this trail sucked. It is no longer accessible from Rowlett Rd. You can access a short 1.3 mile trail from Miller road. The rest of the trail is non existent. Very disappointing.

mostly shaded, and a relaxing walk. plenty of bikers. Great for kids. There a creek to play in, and little snail shells the kids can find and collect.

One of my favorite places to go in the Dallas area. It's small, but it's quite great.

Decently fast trail with a few technical parts. Trail is separated into 16 loop sections, you can choose to do one or all. All-in-all a fun ride with plenty of shade, just beware the poison ivy.
