I only walked part of Bluestem Trail and part of Riverview Trail. Bluestem was pretty and I would like to hike all of it. However Riverview Trail was disappointing. It's wide like a single lane graveled road, but there is no clear view of the Brazos River. I could tell where the river but so much brush and trees separate you from it. Maybe at the very end you get to see the river, but I didn't find out. I turned around about halfway through the trail. Also very little shade on Riverview Trail.

Nice small trail. Great for beginners since most of trail is concrete.

Decently fun trail, a real gem in Lubbock.

What a great Hike! Water runs next to most of the trail. I wouldn't rate it as easy though. Lots of ravines to go through - which was fun, but challenging.

We started at Mountain creek reserve. As soon as you get on the path to walk, the scenery totally changes. While on one side there are trees and shrubs, the right side is a constant eyesore of construction sites, equipment and noise and trash and the constant odor of sewage. We walked to the Bonnie and Clyde bridge, which was an unexpected fun site.. but again more construction surrounding it. There is trash littering that whole part of the trail, with signs saying keep out everywhere. The smell, the whole trail is really bad with sewage. And the swarms (yes swarms) of mosquitos was awful.. (obviously because of all of the standing water). We have walked many trails, this might be the worst ever. Not what we were expecting at all. Along with all of that, we were almost afraid to leave our vehicle in the parking area, because of all the youngsters sitting around in their vehicles watching everyone that drove in.

Love to go hiking with my dog here. We try our hardest to stay out of the bike paths because there are always a bunch of them there. It can be unavoidable at times, but everyone is pretty friendly. I love the challenging spots here!

Plenty of twists, turns and hills to keep the many miles interesting. The terrain and views change throughout, and even runs alongside a large creek for a while. This trail is really a hidden gem in the north Fort Worth area.

A pretty good challenge for a hiker. it was pretty muddy about 3 miles in and either path going forward was impassable. I think there must be an offroad motorcycle course nearby which took away a bit of the serenity. If you are tasty, bring some skeeter spray because they were out in force.

45-minutes from north Ft Worth, it's our go-to when we don't have time to go too far, but want a nice walk. Sure it gets busy during the summer months because it is shaded, but it's well worth the time. We take our dachshunds and they have a great time.

Rocky trail with tons of elevation changes. I looped Fossil Ridge to Coyote Run to Spillway Trail. 4.9 miles

Beautiful, mostly paved trail. If you go all the way to Bob Eden and back it’s about 5 miles.

Had a great weekend here with my son (10) camping and hiking. We did the full trail and all the loops twice over the weekend. It is a great trail for young and novice hikers. There are some more technical aspects to the trail in the red section, but isn't terribly challenging in the other parts of the trail system. We had a blast. I had never camped here before. I've been to Isle du Bois more times than I can count, and it has a great DORBA trail system too ... but this was my first time at Johnson Branch.

Our site was in the "Dogwood Canyon" primitive camping area, and the sites there are great. If you are a hammock camper (like me) you will want to avoid most of the waterfront sites in that area for lack of good hanging options. However, the inland sites offer plenty of places to hang your hammock, and are a little more sheltered from the winds that can come in strong off the lake (like we had this weekend).

The total trail system is about 9 miles if you do all the loops, which is substantially smaller than the sister park on the other side of the lake (Isle du Bois) ... but the foot traffic is noticeably less and we only encountered a handful of bikes on the trail. It was a great weekend and we'll definitely be back. The trail is a great one to do some training on for longer backpacking trips and hikes. I was pleasantly surprised to find this little gem right around the corner from where everyone else goes when they try to camp at Lake Ray Roberts.

Great trail to hike with a family and dogs!

Beautiful scenery. Beaver dam and natural spring. Path was pretty wet which slowed us down a bit.

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".

Great little hike! You feel you are out in the woods even though the lake is in town. I do this pretty often and recommend it!

great mountains but loose rocks

You can also take the tunnel on the west side that goes under Angel Parkway to more paved walkway that adds another mile or so. It continues all the way back to Malone.

We went hiking here 2 days in a row and absolutely loved it. My puppy had never done a hike off-leash and he LOVED it. I wish there were more around us!

There are several trails at this park. We did the outside loop trails that came to about 2.5 miles. Loved the hills and rocky trails. The river was pretty and nice to walk along at the end of our hike.

Good for exercise, but not great on sights or beauty. Underwhelmed.

easy dirt and light packed gravel 10ft wide trail. first part is also a golf cart trail. some lake views, wetlands and black praire. trail can flood in parts after heavy rain but generally can walk around. best use is biking. lots of interesting educational signs and benchs in route.

Easy trail with a great chance to view wildlife / gators! Good trail for Brazos Bend (or any trail) newbies. Wide trail path with lots of scope for sharing the trail with runners, bikers, dogs and the like. Lots of viewing points as well.

Moderately trafficked? Not on the weekends. Everyone lives white rock lake.

Very nice hiking area.

pretty busy in nice weather, but lovely trail.
