Great place. It's not very crowed early in the morning. We did 7 miles on the trail, it was great! I like that the trail was very shaded. I didn't see any bathrooms. We did see plenty of water fountains though

Great trail. We rented bikes from the trail. Yes, they have rental bikes on the trail for $1
We did 6 miles on the bike and walked 3.5 miles back to the car, to take our time and enjoy the trail.
GREAT PLACE!!!

If you have business in Dallas and are looking for a nice loop trail for a quick run, this trail is ideal. Conveniently located near both major airports, nicely paved, relatively flat. The loop is almost exactly a 5k. It loops around a lovely lake. Granted, it’s in the city and near airports so you will hear street noise and jet noise.

Beautiful, mostly paved trail. If you go all the way to Bob Eden and back it’s about 5 miles.

Straight forward "hike" with lots of human traffic. Went towards the afternoon and the sunset over the lake was amazing! Lots of dogs on this "trail" so be careful with their byproducts if ya know what I mean. There are bicyclists as well so try not to get run over by them.

All in all, pretty easy and chill "hike".

Moderately trafficked? Not on the weekends. Everyone lives white rock lake.

Great paved trail around the lake & beautiful wildlife especially for bird watching. I rented one of the bikes and biked about 3 of the 9 miles. Beautiful lavish homes lined the west side of the lake- amazing architecture. The lake was littered in a few areas, but other than that the grounds & trail was well maintained. I’ll definitely be back.

I enjoy this trails every time I go

Great trail

I've been biking on this trail for over 10 years, and have never had an incident other than being stared at by a coyote and almost running over a snake. That said, I simply wouldn't walk on this trail alone. As others have said, the trail passes through some fairly isolated areas where you're liable to encounter some sketchy people living under bridges and what-not. I still bike it from time to time, because it's easier to find another cyclist to keep in view while traversing the sketchy areas. This would be a nice trail without all the negatives from being in a large urban area, such as trash, graffiti, and potential for crime.

This is a very easy paved loop around the lake. It can get very busy at times, but as a result it tends to be much safer than the White Rock Creek trail which adjoins it (that trail passes through some sketchy and fairly isolated areas). It's a nice trail for biking or walking, with lots of nice scenery. One interesting tid-bit: On the southeast side of the lake, maybe a mile north / northwest of the spillway and near the boat house / pump station, you might see and/or hear some feral parakeets in the trees.

Really pretty paved trail in the middle of a big city. Great views of the lake and best dog park in Dallas.

Beautiful urban trail, just too crowded.

Out and back trail that is part of a much longer trail. Reasonably flat and includes additional fitness activities if you so choose. Excellent hike and good for all age groups and fitness levels.

This is by far the best paved biking trail I have come across in north Texas. The view of the lake, magnificent estates and the many other riders on trail are what make White Rock a great place to bicycle.

Light on traffic, but not very well maintained. Asphalt and concrete repairs needed.

Great view of the lake but some of the pavement needs serious work - careful if you're on wheels
