The park is really pretty and it wasn’t super crowded so that was nice. This trail is nice and moderate but you gotta make sure you look for the signs Bc they are weirdly placed. Bring lots of water!

The positives are the dense forest scenery, amenities such as exercise and information stations, two dog parks, numerous good parking areas providing easy access, restrooms and it is very well maintained. The negatives are the large number of users, including high speed cyclists, the flat topography and hard concrete path that is hard on the feet .

Of course it's a great trail, but watch out for rattlesnakes. We passed 2 rattlesnakes on our hike. One was in the middle of the trail and one was toward the side of the trail in the shade. It had just bit a hiker and she was waiting for medical help to arrive. Hike in center of trail (about5-6 feet wide) and be very aware of surroundings.

Beautiful views!

Excellent trail for elevation training.

Easy to get lost, poorly marked. That is part of the fun though! Have gps or a compass and it’s a blast exploring all the fun trails.
Mild elevation changes throughout. Incredible scenery!

Very fun experience and I look forward to learning more of these trails.

It was very good even though it’s summer & it was a bit hot

Wonderful paved walking path with numerous off road trails crisscrossing the area. Biking on the paved path or on the dedicated off road biking trail only. Very popular destination.

Feel like this is more of an easy, than moderate. All paved which isn’t ideal to me but would be good with bikes.

Great challenging hike !!

This was a nice walk with my dog buddy . Several bikers, walkers etc. I Felt safe on this Saturday morning. There was water when I went. The trail was paved n clean and there were areas to sit an relax.

This is an easy, but beautiful trail that features a nice waterfall when rain is plentiful. It doesn’t have a lot of elevation change, but combining the two trails, Mountain View Trail & Rustling Leaves Trail provides a nice hike.

Believe the "hard" review on this one. It's true. I can usually fly through a rated hard hike fairly easily, but this one gave me a run for my money! It is a STEEP climb with a lot of climbing on all fours. The views of the canyon and both sides of el paso are amazing, however. If you're in the right shape, I highly recommend it.
The chains look intimidating, but they're easy as long as ya stay close to the wall and go slow.

Beautiful view of the Sun rising when started early enough. A friend and I hiked this trail recently and the property owners have placed more trespassing signs. We came across someone working on the antennas but he didn't seem worried about us passing through. I can't say that they will not enforce the no trespassing message, I'm going avoid this one for a while. The route will need editing to keep people from getting in trouble.

Great if you require stairs, otherwise switchbacks could have done without them.

Not sure where the app is taking us for the start point. Its just a neighborhood with no access to the trail, but once on the trail its a really nice walk.

Quiet path just off of 290. Fun to go from the traffic of 290 and Brodie into the Central Texas Forest. Very pristine, with no maintenance off the trail. Well marked path Plenty of parking at the Spec’s / Sams parking lot with access to the Barton Creek green belt. I’d give it the 5th star if the trail was slightly better maintained, maybe some volunteer hours in my future.

I used to walk this trail when my kids were really little. Double jogger and two working dogs in tow, once you committed you were in it for the long haul. Yesterday was the first time I’ve taken to the trail in about 7-8 years. I loved it! All the work that has been done to the park is awesome. The lighting, cameras, bridges, extra parking, all makes it even better than it was before. Can’t wait to return again soon!

Nice walking trail. Started in Farmersville and did about 4.5 miles with our dogs. Very easy, it’s a paved trail where we were so definitely no hiking. There were joggers, horseback riders, and cyclists, but the trail definitely has room for all to enjoy.

Dogs are welcome, but need to be on a leash. My one complaint and reason I give it four stars was the German Shepherd walking around off-leash at the end of our walk. We didn’t know if he was with one of the other walkers or if he was from a nearby home/farm. We had a group of people and our dogs with us so he stayed away, but if I’d been alone with one of my dogs, I would have been concerned.

Otherwise, excellent trail. Well maintained with trash bins along the way. Nice wooded scenery. Not a difficult trail at all, at least not at this location. Will definitely be back.

Plenty of single track mostly flat with an occasional climb and rocky decents. lots of hidden gems. very nice scenery. there is a section where slaughter creek turns into a mini canyon with at least 30ft walls on each side. trails are rugged enough to get your heart pumping. Best part is you cant get lost. All single tracks eventually cross the main paved loop.

Great spot to practice or go out with friends. The bike paths are not challenging, but you are going to encounter a fair amount of sand patches in which you can slide/fall if not paying attention. Great park overall.

Pretty easy hike, and the view at the top is amazing!

Love it, well maintained!

This is my favorite place (so far) in NTX to trail run! So many challenging elevation changes, the air smells like cedar, it’s scenic, and I love encountering other runners on the trail. Bring real supportive trail running shoes!, even if you’re hiking, this loop is not for the faint of heart. Great bird watching & place to get your heart rate elevated.

Very pleasant trail. Took me awhile to get the hang of the signs at different trail intersections but a great loop around with lots of nature. I saw a lot of tiny frogs along the path. Just remember to bring lots of water!
