This is my local training spot for running and cycling. I love it but you do have to watch out for others...sometimes the cyclists are the jerks thinking they're at le tour and sometimes runners are the jerks wearing earbuds and can't hear approaching cyclists. Sometimes there are just families with kids who dart across the path. Overall, it's great. I like tacking on the other trails so I don't have to ride the loop multiple times to get in extra miles. It is a gem in the middle of the city and I'm so glad I live nearby.

The wooded areas are really pretty. Creek levels are low and there was a lot of trash in it and on the trail...makes me sad and mad. Saw a couple of men sleeping under the bridge at Forest and another taking a "shower" at the water fountains near 75 and 635 in that open area. Decided that I should probably turn around there...met back up with WRC trail and biked it until the trail was closed...somewhere on Park Central. It's probably best to bike it with a buddy...definitely felt safer on a bike than I would have running alone.

All paved, super flat. Easy start to finish and always crowded, even on week days. Very well-maintained and litter-free. The wisteria in the springtime is absolutely lovely. Stop at Katy Trail Ice House if it's a drinkin' sort of hike.

A lovely lake to take a leisurely bike, walk, or run. Can be quite littered at times. Watch out for cyclists, they'll switch between road rules and pedestrian rules in an instant. Check out White Rock Paddle Co for kayaking!

A nice, shaded running trail in the heart of the city. A nice escape from the hustle and bustle. Great for running.

Great biking trail. Beautiful view of the lake. Trees everywhere. Lots of birds.

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.
