Awesome, I always enjoyed the this park.

Trail was extremely difficult and I ended up getting lost for about 3 days and I had to set up camp in the middle of the woods. The first night in the woods was the worst because it was dark and I had no fire but after shotgunning a couple beers I felt perfectly fine and passed out. Day two was used mainly for foraging for food and hunting small game. At the end of the day I ended up spearing 6 squirrels and 9 lizards for dinner which is an average day for me. Fire was easy for me to get going the second night due to the lighter and pack of cigarettes I found. Still the worst part of all of this was no toilet paper so I ended up just using my hands to wipe but I still had some brews with me so I was ok. Day three was a short one for since I was low on beers so I went skinny dipping in the pond before shotgunning my last 4 beers. Afterwards I walked my car home while singing sweet home Alabama with one shoe in my ear.

Great trails

decent for dog walking. mostly flat trails, with a couple miles of pavement too for easy walking.

My small dog and I explored the small off trail, trails today...it was nice to see some beautiful red birds, turtles and fish. However, most the fish we saw were from people pulling them out of the small pond. So...bring your poles! Still lots we did not have time to see.

I've been walking this loop while nursing a knee injury. I'm up to about a 7 minute half mile. I didn't find it in an all trails search, so, I decided to record and post it. Practicing for bigger things to come. I do multiple loops as my knee gets stronger, to get the distance I want. It's got a nice atmosphere for a very small park. It can get tough to find parking if the soccer kids are practicing there though.

Nice hiking

it's sad yet disgusting how people in the city trash places....and tx has some of the highest property taxes in the nation, yet our corrupt officials can't even keep our parks clean. yet they drive fancy cars...wear designer suits...and make tons of money that isn't "salary". this trail is a stain on our cities. a true testament to how polluted our government has become

Long peaceful and wooded.

Paved bike path that mostly runs along the retention pond next to the new(ish) Viridian neighborhood. Unfortunately, because of this, the sights on this hike aren’t extremely varied and are fairly unremarkable. Really starts to feel like you’re on a proper hike about 1.5 miles before the trail terminus. Worth checking out once if you live in the general vicinity of River Legacy Park but I’m sure you’ll see why I won’t be going back any time soon.

Follow the disc golf course for added elevation and terrain changes.

Nice flat trail

Trail is much longer, goes to the 7 mile marker. Usually see armadillos, snakes, rabbits, raccoons, bobcats, coyotes, and various birds. Trail runs across and beside the Trinity River.

Huge park and huge loop. Hikers and bikers go head on so they don't run into each other. Great layout with areas for people of all abilities.

very nice nature preserve

my husband and I loved it.

Great MTB course. Lots of bypasses to take easier routes or a shorter ride. Marked well with signs but still a little confusing first run through. Good idea to take photo of map or track your route!

Did the 14 mile paved trail by bike. Great shade but lots of traffic.There's one wood bridge that's super slick if wet. Saw 2 kids wipe out on it.

very easy terrain with a nice tree canopy and lots of wildlife. I've seen several bobcats hanging out in the shade.

Great trail for practicing backpacking or testing out your gear. LOTS of MTB(mountain bikes) so be weary and always check around the corners. It is very easy to get lost out in this maze. I recommend dropping waypoints in a GPS.

Great trails for dog walking numerous off road trails just watch for bikes even though some trails r marked for hikers only all in all most enjoyable

Super easy trails, ignore the bobcats after dusk. They don't eat much.

Super easy trails that are paved. Very busy so not a secluded experience. Clean and dog/bike friendly.
