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.

Great trail.

Nice trail for training long distances. Flat with lots of shade. Definitely going back.

Easy 10 mile hike from Farmersville to Merit and back.

Hiked between Celeste and Wolfe City. Amenities in both cities for resupplying. The area near approach of Wolfe City parking from south has a few loose dogs to watch out for.

This trail is well maintained and extremely clean. Beautiful birds and wildflowers. I will make this park my new hiking spot. Loved it.

I absolutely loved this trail. It reminds me of Little House on the Prairie. There are tall grasses and it's so peaceful here. I wish it were closer to me. I would go all the time. I thought my GPS was leading me wrong but this place is in the middle of nowhere. I went during the week and there was not a soul there. My dogs had so much fun. They do have bathrooms there but they were locked. Maybe they only open them up on the weekends. I'm unsure.

I took my daughter to this trail to do a quick shakedown hike as preparation for a summer backpacking trip. This is definitely more of a nature preserve than a park with trails. Most of the trail was knee-to-waist high grass, as were the common areas. The only way to differentiate the trail from the field was to walk between old treads where they must run a mower or tractor at the beginning of the season, and watch for occasional marker posts. It was more like bush whacking than hiking. The long trail that runs to the observation area to the north measured out at 1mi out and back and did offer some really nice views.

This park is probably paradise for nature observers, since there was a lot of flowers and bird/insect activity. Didn't see any snakes, but I'm sure they are in abundance. But it's not really for hikers or anyone wanting to use the open space for an outing.
