This place used to be a nice place to walk but not so much now. They put down a lot of gravel making it hard to walk on. I’m not sure what they are doing to Samuel Farms but I know the previous owner who passed away would be disappointed in Dallas county for what it has become.

Not a bad trail, but definitely muddy in places, wet and overgrown.

Not a fan. The white rock trail is not maintained at all and is uneven, rutted, and under water in places. Some of the trails aren’t even visible. Those that are go through places that look like old country roads by fields of grass, not much to look at and feels kind of creepy. There was no one there at all, quite desolate and abandoned. No markings to show you where to go or stay on trail, and you don’t quite know which way to go in many places. Lots of damaged or defaced picnic equipment, fire pits, and the city sewer system manholes/etc. Disappointing.

There are no marked trails so it’s kind of, try to figure out where you’re going or just explore the property which is pretty neat. The restrooms seem to always be closed...there is a playground for kids, plenty of picnic tables, shade and a few grills. If you go over a holiday weekend, expect to see quite a few people and lots of trash everywhere...

We had a decent sized group hit this trail today and we were a little disappointed by how high the plants have grown IN the trail. Some parts were not passible by our small children and they needed to be carried by parents. You could barely see the path under your feet. I quick pass of a mower could remedy that really fast! The bathrooms and fountains were not operational, which was a bummer at the end of the trail when everyone was thirsty. Aside from that we had a great time. And we’re thankful for the many spots of shade along the hike.

There are no specifically marked trails at this park, but there are plenty of wide clearly-visible paths. You must take with you an attitude that it will be fun exploring different routes. Some lead back to the start rather quickly. Paths wind through wooded areas, border neighborhoods or businesses and others pass through fields. There is a lot of trash around the south end of the trail, and some trash makes you wonder what all goes on in the woods, so be cautious and aware of your surroundings. It could stand some attention by a group of loving volunteers. Some of the fields can be pretty muddy, so be prepared for that even several days after a heavy rain.

This could be a great place if a little more effort were put into maintaining the park and curating the trails a bit better. It’s the best trail we’ve got to work with in Mesquite though and my kids and I enjoy getting out on a nice day. Can be very muddy and buggy in the southern most areas of the loop so be prepared.

I am not a fan! I would love to see them fix this up and bring traffic back to Mesquite! There are no signs, I went there before I had this app, just used common sense! For 2 women, it seems scary, so I would recommend not going alone! Use the restroom before you arrive!

The front part of the farm was really nice, but the trail was TRASHY throughout most of it. There were also construction workers working next to part of the trail and some poor looking houses next to the trail. LOTS of mud and some kinda green moss...at least I hope that's all it was...on the trail. If they get it cleaned up I'd recommend it, but otherwise just stick with the part nearest to the road with the buildings. That's the only reason I gave it a 3 instead of a 2. I'd give the trail itself a 2, because it definitely has potential. it's just clear the city or whoever doesn't take care of it, which is REALLY sad.

My first attempt failed because a family brought 2 dogs unleashed which I feared would approach my leashed Pit Bull Terrier, it has happened numerous times in the past while at other parks. So I just did not want to deal with another potential dog fight especially with 2 other dogs. The next attempt was fully successful. The trail was wide and clear passing by freshly lawned fields, ponds, and a tree tunneled pathways. Although, I did need to walk through a stream which led to wet feet for the remainder of the hike and there were 2 additional muddy spots to work through. Considering that the trail is in close proximity to houses, businesses, and a major highway for the most part was a pleasant oasis hideaway with a few reminders of nearby civilization with a little litter to be somewhat expected not necessarily forgivable but not unusual to find in just a few minute areas. Overall it was very nice.

Attempted to go here but people have literally broken gates and parts of the fences so they can drive their cars through the park and trails... is not safe to walk with kids. There’s garbage everywhere and it smells really bad.

Not bad park, but not a very well defined path

lots of things to see. several ponds. lots of ducks and birds! There are so many areas you can explore besides the main path, which is quite overgrown in some places.

This is a fun trail that's rocky, somewhat paved in places, and grassy. A little pleasant elevation and scenery. One caveat: the all trails map takes the hiker away from the beaten trail on the north end, near the hwy 80 service road. Once you get to the last fork just after the creek, go south (right) instead of north (left) and you're good to go!

There are no marked trails or anything that resembles a hiking trail. This site is more of a family or company picnic area. The two ponds are filled with very stagnant water that I wouldn't even fish in.

The trail is easily accessible from hwy 80 yet isolated enough to give you the feeling you are "in the woods" there are some ponds that will bring lots of wildlife, small mammals, birds, and BUGS (bring repellent). There is no water on the trail so bring your own. Also the trail lacks signs or any orienteering help so bring some common sense if you lack that then YES your GPS-enabled phone will have reception. It should take you about 1 hr to complete. This is also a perfect mountain biking training site for newbies. Bluebonnets blanket the prairie in April-May and it looks very scenic.
