This was a nice walk with my dog buddy . Several bikers, walkers etc. I Felt safe on this Saturday morning. There was water when I went. The trail was paved n clean and there were areas to sit an relax.

Nice for a short getaway in North Denton County. "Beware of Snakes" signs are for real. Crossed a copperhead this morning on our second visit this month.

Great trail to start off Big Bend with for me, nice and easy climb to the summit, great views from the top, I did hike in middle of July with about a 4:30pm start in 98 degree heat, only drank 2 liters of water. Hike was fairly quick but I did spend a lot of time up top with my GoPro. Definitely recommend this for even the beginner hiker.

A nice maybe 15-20 minute walk to the water fall, if that. I took my 3 year old here today to do a little hike and swimming. The grass was a bit overgrown and there were a few flying critters around, but overall not bad because it was a short trail. The water was 1 ft maybe 1.5 in areas but mostly just a few inches so it was the perfect height for my 3 year old to walk and splash around as he pleases and me not be too worried. He was wearing his KEENs which I would recommend for children; he did not slip once.

This is an easy, but beautiful trail that features a nice waterfall when rain is plentiful. It doesn’t have a lot of elevation change, but combining the two trails, Mountain View Trail & Rustling Leaves Trail provides a nice hike.

Believe the "hard" review on this one. It's true. I can usually fly through a rated hard hike fairly easily, but this one gave me a run for my money! It is a STEEP climb with a lot of climbing on all fours. The views of the canyon and both sides of el paso are amazing, however. If you're in the right shape, I highly recommend it.
The chains look intimidating, but they're easy as long as ya stay close to the wall and go slow.

Beautiful view of the Sun rising when started early enough. A friend and I hiked this trail recently and the property owners have placed more trespassing signs. We came across someone working on the antennas but he didn't seem worried about us passing through. I can't say that they will not enforce the no trespassing message, I'm going avoid this one for a while. The route will need editing to keep people from getting in trouble.

Great if you require stairs, otherwise switchbacks could have done without them.

Not sure where the app is taking us for the start point. Its just a neighborhood with no access to the trail, but once on the trail its a really nice walk.

Quiet path just off of 290. Fun to go from the traffic of 290 and Brodie into the Central Texas Forest. Very pristine, with no maintenance off the trail. Well marked path Plenty of parking at the Spec’s / Sams parking lot with access to the Barton Creek green belt. I’d give it the 5th star if the trail was slightly better maintained, maybe some volunteer hours in my future.

I used to walk this trail when my kids were really little. Double jogger and two working dogs in tow, once you committed you were in it for the long haul. Yesterday was the first time I’ve taken to the trail in about 7-8 years. I loved it! All the work that has been done to the park is awesome. The lighting, cameras, bridges, extra parking, all makes it even better than it was before. Can’t wait to return again soon!

Awesome trails! Plenty of elevation changes. Several jumps built throughout the trail system.

Nice walking trail. Started in Farmersville and did about 4.5 miles with our dogs. Very easy, it’s a paved trail where we were so definitely no hiking. There were joggers, horseback riders, and cyclists, but the trail definitely has room for all to enjoy.

Dogs are welcome, but need to be on a leash. My one complaint and reason I give it four stars was the German Shepherd walking around off-leash at the end of our walk. We didn’t know if he was with one of the other walkers or if he was from a nearby home/farm. We had a group of people and our dogs with us so he stayed away, but if I’d been alone with one of my dogs, I would have been concerned.

Otherwise, excellent trail. Well maintained with trash bins along the way. Nice wooded scenery. Not a difficult trail at all, at least not at this location. Will definitely be back.

Plenty of single track mostly flat with an occasional climb and rocky decents. lots of hidden gems. very nice scenery. there is a section where slaughter creek turns into a mini canyon with at least 30ft walls on each side. trails are rugged enough to get your heart pumping. Best part is you cant get lost. All single tracks eventually cross the main paved loop.

Tough trail for an old 80 year old man. July is not the best month to hike.

Great spot to practice or go out with friends. The bike paths are not challenging, but you are going to encounter a fair amount of sand patches in which you can slide/fall if not paying attention. Great park overall.

Pretty easy hike, and the view at the top is amazing!

Love it, well maintained!

This is my favorite place (so far) in NTX to trail run! So many challenging elevation changes, the air smells like cedar, it’s scenic, and I love encountering other runners on the trail. Bring real supportive trail running shoes!, even if you’re hiking, this loop is not for the faint of heart. Great bird watching & place to get your heart rate elevated.

Great variety of trails but nothing too extreme. Lots of shades trail yet still plenty breezy on windy days. Perfect for family outings.

Catching up on my AllTrails reviews. Did this in April 2017 with my then 12 year old son. First mile to mile and a half was no joke, incline got me. I’m a pretty tall 300 pound guy but made it up and down with no real issue. Beautiful hike, beautiful weather, beautiful view at top. Started around 8am, couple of rest stops, finished around 5pm, but detoured on the way down and added an hour. Great hike!

I liked this hike starting with the Rock Garden Trail, however it was a boring stretch hiking the Tub Springs Draw Point. If you are looking for a good view of the canyon, the view at the end of the Point is pretty nice.

Very pleasant trail. Took me awhile to get the hang of the signs at different trail intersections but a great loop around with lots of nature. I saw a lot of tiny frogs along the path. Just remember to bring lots of water!

I would rate this 4 stars as a trail but 5 for the overall experience. As others have said, the trail itself is rocky and often devoid of shade. But it's a short hike to the falls, which are absolutely worth a visit. Just bring lots of water and wear a hat during the summer, and you'll be fine.

Dog friendly, limited parking on weekends
