enjoyed what I was able to do, but it is severely overgrown after about a mile and a half. I switched over to the trail on the other side because there was no way around the dense overgrowth. there is also an excessive amount of trash on this trail. if I was out to hike for beauty, it would have bugged me. but since I was just trying to run through, it wasn't terrible.

My dog and I took several of the side trails too. Some rocky and a few inclines, so you can get more of a hike in.

Very easy trail. About 85% of it is under shade.

Very well maintained trail system. The markings are very visible and correct.

A lot of wild live present- today we had 2 water moccasins cross the trail at different points within feet of us.

Had 4 dogs with us that enjoyed all the smells.

I do wish other dog owners were more considerate and pick up- it is a wildlife area but get your dog waste off the trail.

I love this trail! Mostly shaded not a lot of traffic when I’ve hiked there. Dog friendly and easy to find

My first time on these trails with my dog and really enjoyed the trails! Yes some back up to houses but was quiet and even saw some beautiful longhorns on some farmland along the way.

Fantastic trail once you're beyond the Old Alton bridge. Quiet (except for distant traffic noise), fluctuating scenery and terrain, and clean. Terrain gets really hilly and a bit treacherous east of the Village Pkwy bridge, then the trail fades as you go further east. A local resident told me the trail riders stopped maintaining it east of that bridge after the 2015 flood.

lots of fun and good for training on the cx bike.

Nice for a short getaway in North Denton County. "Beware of Snakes" signs are for real. Crossed a copperhead this morning on our second visit this month.

Definitely a city park more than a hike. It was pleasant. Part of the walking trail is next to a busy street.

Great little trail here in Denton, TX. This trail has lots of beautiful vegetation, and a wonderful prairie section of the trail accompanied by a nice hill for a great view. There are bikers on this trail regularly as well as people walking their dogs, but everyone has been friendly and polite. Some of the trails close throughout the year due to flooding from the wetlands portion of the trail so be prepared to skip a few short hikes.

a great trail, beware of snares near water towards the beginning of the trail, but there is a good variety of wildlife. it's also a great local trail for those who live in Denton without having to drive 30-60 minutes away. me and my labrador both love this trail

Enjoyed this 1h15m hike with our 3-yr old dachshunds. Undulating terrain, a few stream crossings, rabbit and turtle sightings, periodic stops at Trailside benches, and lots of shade. Follow the blue dots and you'll have a good time.

This is my favorite place to walk in Denton and most of Dallas. Very beautiful with lots of flowers, birds, wildlife. The trails are easy and well-maintained. The area shows off a couple of ecosystems such as wetland and grassland. And it's never been busy whenever I've visited.
Be aware that it gets quite muddy after a good rain. There's also cows that freely roam the area, so don't step in their huge scat piles!

love this trail. went with the grandkids and had a great time. some spots were tough for them but they didn't give up and now they love a sport i love and we can do together.

Drove 17 minutes to find out it's closed off idk if there is another way to get in but the way the GPS took me it was closed I was sad I was looking forward too this trail :(

Had some really good sights me and my best friend enjoyed it a lot. Some of the trails were closed. Lots of beautiful wildflowers, frogs, and birds. Will definitely go back :) did have quite a bit of mud!

Brought my dog out we both had a lot of fun seems pretty safe considering it was just me and her and didn't have any trouble:) I'd go back!

Do you like mud? Awesome! So do we! We enjoyed a 1h52m hike on the outer loop through all the spectacular zones. Our 3-yr old dachshunds were mudded up, but dont let that stop you from enjoying a really cool hike. Some elevation only in a few places, not continuous. Most of the hike is covered but wear sunblock and spray for the prairies and bog areas. Sufficient parking in several locations.

No restrooms, only a portable potty.

Please pick up after your pets (carry in, carry out).

This is a nice, paved trail which feels more like a city park than a hiking trail. There's another dirt trail not shown on this map that is a bit more rustic and is good for school outings or Cub Scout nature hikes. An easy hike for all skill levels with lots of tree and wild flowers. There's a pretty park with a large playground and lots of picnic areas and open spaces.

I loved it. It was the first trail I’ve been on where every time I took a deep breath, I smelled flowers. I got a little confused on which way to go at times because it looks like they’re adding to it as we speak, and some areas were closed off for construction. I didn’t really care, though, because the gravel areas were still easy to walk on even though it had rained earlier that day. Even the sloppy areas weren’t really muddy because of the gravel.

For a great hike take the horse trail (entrance on the right hand side of the parking lot) from the FM428 entrance. Great low water crossings and lots of tree covered dirt trails.

Many houses were near as well as a big soccer field so it was easy to hear people. Other than that, it was pretty decent trail to spend time walking.

I love the trail being a loop! Thrashers Maze was a great addition. It kept me in the Woody area and helped me forget about the city.

I took my German Shepard out here to burn some energy and we both loved it. The trails are beautiful. Had one issue.... a ladies dog attacked mine for no reason. Keep your dog on a leash if it isn’t friendly towards other animals.

it's short but good... if you add going around the disk golf course with it... it makes for a much better hike

I enjoyed this trail for running or just out walking your dog

Good for a quick quiet walk!

Love this trail, easy walk. Be sure and go for a added walk on the small trails that branch off main trail. Every month I walk from start to Sycamore Park, hard to find trails at time but worth the effort.

I find this trail perfect for me as a beginner in the trail running world.
