Paved walk/bike path through park constructed around city reservoir. Multiple parking lots around the pathway. Relatively level terrain. White Rock Lake is a water reservoir constructed circa 1900 to supply water to the growing Dallas area. The surrounding land has been turned into a picturesque city park and is, in turn, surrounded by neighborhoods. A paved multi-use pathway circumnavigates the lake with several (apparently older and unmaintained) walking pathways branching off at various points. Interconnects with other pathways.

This is by far the best paved biking trail I have come across in north Texas. The view of the lake, magnificent estates and the many other riders on trail are what make White Rock a great place to bicycle.

Great view of the lake but some of the pavement needs serious work - careful if you're on wheels

Scenic ride with just a couple of hills. Roads offer plenty of space for cyclists. Trails can be very crowded with pedestrians.
