Trail runs along the back of a neighborhood, so backyards are visible the entire length of the 1.5 mile trail. also, although on the map it appears to run along the creek, the creek is not visible from the trail. The trail ends just before the lake, so no great view at the end.

nice little, trail ran it at night, so don't have much to say however there were Trail markers so that if you were to get injured or lost you will know exactly where you are they're labeled as NT 1 and so on.

one thing that is semi-critical about the directions that both Google Maps and all Trails will give you is this. All Trails will send you to a cul-de-sac in a neighborhood with no access to the trail itself, and Google will also do the same but this time it's kind of in the middle of the road. The actual coordinates are as follows

32.8938433, -96.5875476

or 8645VCV6+GX if you use plus code.

I can't find the trail! I think I found the trailhead and since it rained recently maybe the trail is under water?? There is also construction happening here so I have no idea whether I'm at the trailhead or not. Another Dallas area nature disappointment...

It was a fun and easy hike for the whole family. We found a southern copperhead along the way, which was fun and scary. The only disappointment was that there was no access to the water this late in the year (mid October).

Nice, easy trail. Good access to fishing for white bass in the spring at the very end of the trail where Rowlett creek opens up into Lake Ray Hubbard. ***Please be careful of snakes*** I have hiked a lot of the trails in DFW and I have seen the most snakes here, for whatever reason. A lot of copper heads. I would recommend going during the middle of the day and on colder days when the snakes will be less active. Please do not litter!

I hiked this easy trail with my three kids, 6,3, and one in a stroller. The trail is flat, easy to follow and very well maintained. The sign at the trail head said 1.3 miles, but there was no distance markers so I'm not sure how accurate it is. The two older kids completed the whole thing with almost no complaining, nice place for a family hike.

This is acutally a Rowlett trail. It is mostly crushed stone hardpacked. I would say the level is easy but a couple of creek crossings require some technique. It is a double track and will have some hikers so be cautious if cycling. The trail winds behind the houses on Indian trail and is nice when the lake is up. still a fun trail for a beginner.
