This is an easy hike through low-lying vegetation and a golf course. The trail is well maintained with crushed gravel and is wide enough for multiple people, strollers, bikes. There are a variety of birds among the trees. There is not much shade on the trail. There are ample garbage and recycling bins and some signs explaining the area.
However, if you are looking for an experience of getting away from the feeling of being in a city, this might not be for you. Because the trail starts at a golf course, it is highly manicured and you need to dodge golf carts. Also, it is located on the busy DFW airport flight path. And, although you only see the lake at the very tip of the trail, you can be surrounded by loud water craft (especially on warm days).

This is really just a golf course with a "trail" around it.

Nothing here was particularly scenic. The lake is actually pretty disappointing, as it's fully man made and looks like a mud hole they dug for the WPA. It's a nice distance and pretty open, but it's nothing special. The picture in this post is most definitely NOT of this hike and the muddy brown lake nearby.

Took wife, boy (9), girl (8), and dog full loop. All enjoyed. Would recommend to others. May feel long for those not used to 4+ mile walks but very nice trail.

I loved this trail! It's longer for a good run. The trail is wide enough for a jogging stroller.
