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. Paved multiuse pathway circumnavigates the lake with several (apparently older and unmaintained) walking pathways branching off at various points. Interconnects with other pathways (see also http://www.dallasparks.org/Downloads/Trails/DallasTrailNetworkPlan.pdf).
Very beautiful trail, can be too long for beginners.
Amazing for the first time and better the second time also great for family
This trail has some gorgeous views of the lake, and is relatively flat. the 9 miles was a good challenge for me personally and took just under 3 hours to walk. All in all a good experience.
We walked the entire loop. This is a very nice trail. We really enjoyed the fact that there were many water fountains with dog dishes available. The trail gets pretty busy when the weather is nice, lovely view of the lake.
Great track for endurance running and biking, reasonably crowded at some stretches , loop offers some amazing views.
Wow! great track can be a little crowded at times but endurance loop. Dallas Police on patrol.
It is quite a walk if you do the entire loop around the lake. Never boring, though, and with many nice and interesting views. Nice to have this nearby, even though it can get a bit crowded.
Easy trail. Paved. Flat. Easy for running, walking dog, picnicking, rollerblading, bicycling, kayaking. Water fountains for dogs. Playgrounds. Not many bathrooms. Gated dog park.
