Explore the most popular Views trails near Dallas with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

Not a bad trail as long as you can get past the fear of the entrance. Bullet filled sign and garbage galore. This trail is a perfect spot for a horror movie. A lot of potential just needs a lot of TLC.

Great trail for running and hiking. Busy on the weekends. Trails are well marked and well maintained. If lot is full, Park at the Rec Center. It will add another mile to your hike.

Poor trail signs and many loops with no clear directions. Could use some trail maintenance as well

Did a solid 5.5+ miles on the outer loop trail today, surprisingly moderate challenge given the location, bring your knees!

came back from Tuscon where I was hiking in the mountains on very difficult trails. I gave this a 4 because this is about as good as you will find in DFW area.

Definitely a little more than I bargained for, but I made it through the multitude of elevation changes! Beautiful trail and lots of scenic views. Wide, clean paths and excellent signage/markers. I felt so old as people ran past me or even lapped me, but I was still out there and finished the trail (plus another one) so I am very happy. Glad to have visited today. Watch out for tree roots and slippery rock surfaces.

I did this trail first, before moving on to the Cedar Brake Trail. This was a great warmup because it let me know how challenging the others would be. Lots of elevation changes. The trail is well-kept and easy to navigate, with plenty of signs and markers.

A really enjoyable moderate hike. Quite a lot of elevation change for North Texas. Highly recommend.

I got some good miles done today. The trail is well paved, and it passes by some different parks along the way. Most of the people that I saw on the trails were bikers. The trail goes under road bridges, and runs along roads at some points. Most of the time it runs along side the creek. Sadly, the creek has a lot of trash littered about the place. I wish the city would try harder to help clean it up.

We did Cattail pond trail to cedar brake trail to escarpment trail. Beautiful day with lots of people on the trail.

I would not recommend this trail. You label directions are all on the floor. You will get lucky if you find at least 4 or 5. You will get lost after your in the middle of 3 or 4 cross ways.

This was a nice trail going into the woods. The first part is paved and wraps around the park. The second part is all through the woods. At one part of the trail you can watch bikers jump over several little hills in the middle of the woods. That was a pleasant surprise. It shows me that you never know what you may find on your walks in nature.

The path is paved and all but 200 feet are flat. It walks along the river but is not pretty in January as the river is just a trickle. Light industrial buildings on one side of trail riverbank on the other. I may not go back as I will keep looking for prettier but would definitely use if I was close. I would rate it as easy not moderate

Nice trail and good break from the city scene. Thanks Madi for the tip on how to find it. To reiterate her tip, park at the Golf Club in Keeton Park. Don’t park by the tennis courts described on the app. With the golf course on your right side, walk towards the tall electric tower, and into the open field. Towards the back of the field you’ll see a covered bench that marks the beginning of the Piedmont trail. The trail has a steady ascent but levels off eventually. To take the loop, go to the left when you get to the point where you see the highway. All in all it’s a nice break and you get a bit of a workout.

A great day walk!

Great trail. A fair amount of elevation. Doubled my hike.

Great place for a Jog, Bike ride pr a walk. Many people enjoying the paved trail.

Another fun trail, but we did not follow the path and it was hard to find our way back
