Decent trail. There are some areas with a lot of nearby road noise, nearby construction and a visible apartment complex. The trail is well marked and well maintained. It's a good workout, well shaded. There is a half mile at the end that I'd a true loop. You cross a road to follow it, and it comes back across the road to finish the trail...you could easily cut that part off for a shorter hike. I've done this trial twice and will do it again.

I loved this trail, it's hard to find something like this in Longview. It was mostly clean and well kept. You can fish here too, catch and release. The inner trail around the lake is easy to walk on and the scenery is nice. There are lots of trees to provide shade throughout the trails. There is also a lot of picnic tables and seats near the lake to take rests. You can see some of the traffic from the highway from some parts, and on one part of the lake closest to the entrance there is a lot of construction going on, but it's far enough away to not cause much bother. I felt safe bringing the kids with me here, and they we're able to walk the lake trail with me without problems.

Great trail behind Mobberly Baptist Church in Longview. One trail goes around the lake and another lazily meanders through the woods. Trails are well kept and the area is beautiful.

The trails here do not fluctuate much in elevation, but they do wind in some areas.
The woods can be quite lovely, there are several pretty green and flowery meadows, and the main lake is great place to picnic at. Dog friendly, but leashes necessary. Fishing is catch and release only, mostly sunfish and bass. Black berries along trail turn ripe in May. Open sunrise to sunset.
