Nice trail, have different trails to choose. I didn’t realize this trail is behind my friends neighborhood area! Overall, many blue bonnets to take pics! Some area have shades and some don’t so please bring a bottle of water especially with this Texas heat!

Flat and uneventful. The Cactus Ridge Trail was barely a climb, much easier than the All Trails rating would suggest.

This park has several more trails. Use Google Maps. There's a sizable, pretty pond in the north-central area. The oaks pictured are a must-see: a motte of 3 huge oaks, each several feet in diameter (survivors in an area devastated by oak wilt). They're approximately at the intersection of the Alsatia and Slaughter Creek trails. Park has many more flat, easy trails than rocky ones. The worst rocky stretch isn't on AllTrails map. It's a sizable stretch of the center part of the Slaughter Creek Trail that's on the southwest side of Slaughter (usually dry) Creek.

Nice and not crowded. Have to walk single file. Not too rocky. Partial shade.

Single file dust trail. Rocky in parts. Brushy. Park near swimming pool, walk down Lavendale Trail to hit Slaughter Creek Trail. If you take a right, there may be a trail of interest about ten minutes in - Hunters Run? - but, at least in the summer when the plant life is heat stressed, not very appealing. Stench of dog poop at several points.

Was a bit disappointed hiking this trail - seemed maybe biking it would have been more fulfilling.

DO NOT RUN!!! First off, let me start by saying I’ve lived in & run Maine wilderness trails for 8 years. I love a good challenging run but... If you’re looking for a good run, this is NOT the proper trail. It starts off easy but quickly becomes way too rocky, I thought I would twist my ankle if I kept running & turned back half a mile in: Cute trail for a stroll with Frodo but I cannot in good conscience recommend this trail to runners.

Closer to easy than moderate, kinda rocky but really enjoyable and close to home! Not sure where the dead ends are, as it's a loop. Maybe he's talking about where the trail meets the neighborhoods at several locations, but its really not that difficult to navigate.

unimproved, primitive trails, wear boots, saw lots of deer

I wouldn't call it moderate. Closer to easy, but more invigorating than a stroll. Nice scenery, single person path. Very enjoyable.

We like it. It's a fun little loop only a couple miles from our house.

Not a well-maintained trail system. It was difficult to keep on the trail, many dead ends. Made for a frustrating run. I won't be back.
