Allen, Texas Map

Very light traffic (as in none) bumps it up to 4 stars. The trail is nice but it’s nothing close to extraordinary.

Seemed a bit dull allthough there were a couple of nice areas, looks to be standing water in some areas. Mosquito's everywhere. Also, a honey bee tree right on the trail kinda freaked us out. Alot of construction near by, heard the machines during entire hike.

Too damn muddy!

You can also take the tunnel on the west side that goes under Angel Parkway to more paved walkway that adds another mile or so. It continues all the way back to Malone.

Nice mix of open areas and wooded cover with small elevation changes. The trail is clear and the overgrown areas have been mowed. There is a good amount of poison ivy off the trail but if you stay on it you should be okay. We went South to start and the trail is closed due to construction. We look forward to going back.

Very over grown foliage, tall grasses and trees aid in diminishing the trail. Difficult to find path into forest and need a to wear long sleeves and pants to avoid bites and scratches. Spoke with a hiker who was just swarmed by mosquitoes. Grasses are as tall as it gets. Same goes for Fork East entrance.

love this trail. Easy and scenic, great for horseback riding

Lots and lots of overgrowth on sections. I recommend long pants if you are at all bothered by bugs. Bug spray also recommended. Tons and tons of horse poop all over the trail. Honestly this trail is not worth going on aside from the fact that there are so few around here. Long road walking section is boring and a bit dangerous. The directions on Google Maps take you to what looks like a small gravel parking lot but that is private property. Skip this one.

Just a great short paved trail.

on Outer Loop

Paved running area through a large park that has base ball diamonds, jungle gym, basket ball court and pavilions. There is a shaded tree area and a small pond but most of it is out in the open.

Easy dirt trail, made somewhat challenging due to the mud that was present when we went. 4.7 miles out and back. The trail doesn't exactly end - at least when this map says it does. We turned around at the end of this map so I'm not sure how far it goes. We saw fresh deer tracks and wild hog "wallows", but fortunately didn't see any actual hogs. Some parts of the trail are wide and open; other parts very narrow with grasses growing along edges of the trail (see pics).

Lots of picnic tables. Best nature to be found in the area. Some nice swimming areas near the boat ramps.

Headed north from trailhead. Pretty muddy from recent rains and LOTS of horse poop along the way. Must have been the first one on the trail (got there at 10am) but passed 6 groups of people/horses on the way back.

Great paved trail. Green park, ponds, and a little part is through some trees to give you some brief shade.

Went north from highland park trailhead. Saw the state champion sycamore tree. Trail was interesting and varied.

It's a great trail full of bends and scenic view, smooth with very light ware. The biggest catch to this trail is the HORSE FLIES. They wait for horses on the trail and do not leave you alone the whole run.

This is a very easy trail and no need for long pants. It's flat dirt trail and plenty of shade. Bikers are not aloud. There is some horse riders but very light. When you park at the Highland Park Trail Head, make sure to take the trail to the north side. It will take about a little over 2 hours to complete

This is a great trail for walkers and runners. There are some cyclists using the trail, which can get scary if you are side by side with someone and the bike is coming behind you. The path was not crowded the afternoon we visited, but there is a good chance for crowds during the weekends. 200 foot elevation rise through about 1/3 of trail. Pond makes for a great backdrop during much of the tour. There is also a wooded area shading about 1/4 mile of the trail, which is nice on hot sunny days!
