Wife and I enjoyed the trail very much, but thieves broke a window on the car to steal wife's concealed purse. Shame on us for leaving it, but still ticks you off. A quick survey of the ATT trailhead parking shows that this happens very often; lots of broken window glass. Hopefully was some crew that gets caught and not a fellow hiker. Be aware of your possessions.

Very nice scenic quiet paved trail. We walked it as a loop but had to walk on highway a little to catch the other side of the trail. My 2 dogs and I will definitely do it again!

Don’t park at the Trinity Forest trail head. There has been a string of cars broken into, mine being one of them. It is poorly lit and cops cannot find it.

Very nice paved trail along ponds and beautiful forest. Some road and railroad noise along the part of the trail I walked on. Might start further in next time - there are other parking areas along the trail.

Awesome trail. Lots of shade. Not crowded. You really forget that you are in the city limits.

What a great trail. We went on a weekday and parked by the boat ramp. We felt we had the trail all to ourselves until we reached the Trinity River Audubon parking lot. On total we probably seen 7 people. The trail is less maintained by the boat ramp but it was kind of nice riding through with the feeling like you had discovered an unknown trail. We will be back.

Hiking

Overview: I had a pleasant walk that was really relaxing. The trail is a paved bike / walking path that is shaded for the most part. Part of the trail is alongside a lake and river. Then the wooded area ,which I especially liked, that offers many possible wildlife sightings which include: Hares, Snakes, Turtles, Blue Jay's, Cardinals, Craines, Deer butterflies, dragonflies many other insects. There are also grassland areas which has many beautiful flowers . Pros: 1) There are many nice locations to sit and enjoy the scenery 2)There are three different trail heads that can be used as an endpoint in case you do not want to go through the full 16 mile loop. 3)There are 911 trail markers with locations references that can be used case of emergency. Cons: 1)No public restrooms and few trash cans. 2) Few water fountains and the one I tried using did not work could be due to corona virus now that I think of it. TIP: 1) Arive early as the "hiking" is estimated 6+ hours, this way you beat some of the heat. 2)Take plenty of water I took 3 liter camel back, two 24 oz. bottles of water and 1 liter of mango juice and ran out of water 2/3 of the way back. 3)Make sure your phone has full battery and could last at least 7 hrs while using GPS if you plan on recording your Hike.

This is not really a hiking trail, is a paved walking and biking trail. Although its a pretty walk, I'm somewhat disappointed.
