I rode this trail from the Downtown Denton Transit Center all the way across the Lake Lewisville bridge and back.

There's numerous street crossings (some of which are very busy in terms of automobile traffic) where you have to wait for the crossing light, and even then you have to be careful because there's cars turning that will completely not notice you're there and will run you over if you try to cross while the "Walking" sign is green.

It's also not very scenic, you're basically riding past industrial parks, trailer homes, RV parks, and old run-down neighborhoods.

I would not recommend this trail!

Great when you just want to get some exercise in

Great for walking dogs (on leash). Good flat trail for biking with kids too.

Nice paved trail. We saw a coyote on our outing. Walkers and bikers share the trail. No restrooms available from what I could tell.

Has the potential to be a great park, but it’s in serious need of maintenance and repair with the trails. Also, the trash and tires in the creek is unfortunate and needs to be addressed.

First hike for my wife (Crystal) and I with our dog (Cooper). Kept it short but definitely looking forward to more adventures and longer hikes.

This trail was super easy with kiddos. Lots of people out on a warm January Saturday. Only drawback is how concrete it was. We prefer wooded trails. But the river view was nice!

Beautiful trail ~ flat surfaces ~ paved mostly... very good for beginners!

Very easy trail! Good for all ages/families, runners, walkers, etc. Great views.

Nice, easy urban trail with great views.

Parts are challenging loose rock climbs parts flow fast and fun. Beautiful hill country scenery. Starts in a really nice city maintained park with restrooms and paved parking. I am not from this area but thoroughly enjoyed this trail system and plan to visit again.

Nice easy walk. Great place for bird watching.

Not for hikers or pack-training as my feet never left concrete. Perfect for inner-city outings with families, biking, or quality time.

This is a nice little “trail” (paved sidewalk) around Lake Carolyn in Las Colinas. I work close so it’s a great getaway from my desk. Flat with wheel chair access (although brick pavers might make it bumpy in places), pets on leashes are fine and kids might enjoy looking out over the lake.

Good trail!

Parking good at Elmendorf Lake Park on SW 19th and Saunders. The trail is currently under construction (as of November 2018). Take the street to get to the trail. Saunders east to Zarzamora and go south. Pick up the trail at Escobar Park. Trail is good the rest of the way to where it joins up with the Mission Trail. No water fountains.

Great park. It is a loop trail so it's fun to ride around in big circles. Only downside is that there is no shade, so when I stopped by in late May and it was 99 degrees, it became exhausting quickly. So don't come here midday during a Texas summer, rather come in the morning or evening...

This cemented trail ends abruptly in a residential neighborhood..... please fix the map to indicate this!

Nice clean place for a leg stretch with our dog.

This is a very nice city park located in Watauga, TX. It has restrooms at both end of the park. The cement path is great for walking and it’s 1.3 miles around. You can measure your walk by how many times you go around. It’s clean, well manicured, and has great parking. This is a city walking path.

Nice, easy urban trail. Not moderate at all. Wide trail, mixed use. Ok for runners, walkers, cyclists, pets. Stevie Ray Vaughan statue on the south side of the river is cool.

Cement all the way.... if I wanted to walk on flat concrete I would have stayed in NYC.... Disappointing ...... concrete is not naturally occurring in nature so this not a nature walk......

Is ok but too many aholes on road bikes who think they own the road,

A nice local park. Early morning off paved trail hikes and trail running great for in city. Lots of trees, live creek. Horse corral and riding, bring your own horse.

The area was nice and clean, but I would consider this a heavily trafficked loop. There were only a few people when I arrived just before the sunrise, but by the end of my 40 minute walk there were tons of people. There were a lot of families camping out on the green spaces too, just off the concrete sidewalk. Overall the area was pretty nice, and well maintained. I may go back at some point, but for now I will keep checking out other areas where I can walk my dogs

Love it

great long stretch. however, a good chunk runs through a neighborhood and 90% of this is paved. i personally prefer unpaved, but after a rain this could be a nice option...just dont wear hiking shoes...

This is a nice trail in the middle Dallas. Every piece touches the lake where you can see the birds and activities.

Great trail for a run. There are plenty of additional trails to keep you busy and provide some add-on mikes if you like. Lots of folks early in the morning. Restrooms (port-a-pottys) can be found along the trail. Maybe take your own tp...
