Hiking trails are pretty good and always entertaining! Sun is deadly but it is Texas after all... we go as much as we can! Totally recommend.

Great trail!

To all you hikers that keep complaining, take a minute to think who maintains the trail.. (DORBA).
(YES, IT COSTS BOTH MONEY TO BUY TOOLS AND LOTS OF VOLUNTEER HOURS TO KEEP THE TRAILS TIDY)
Then take another minute to figure out what does that mean. Hikers are more than welcome. but please no matter the park you go to. always stop at the trailhead and READ THE RULES!!!
most trails will ask hikers to go in the oposite direction so you can spot bikers from a distance and move aside.
thank you all for understanding.
have a great day!!

Very well-kept trails for biking and walking. Make sure to go to the end of the trail near the water, it's a gorgeous view. Start to finish is about an hour with a little break near the water.

Convenient hike that is enjoyable year round. Even in August this hike was pleasant due to the shady path, but it is definitely best after a rain or when there's been a rainy season. Full of people and off-leash dogs and, unfortunately, entirely too many bags of dog poop left on the trail by irresponsible owners who can't be bothered carrying out their dog's poop.

Good mix of beginner and intermediate single track with a few hairy advanced spots deeper into this big counterclockwise loop. Easy to choose your distance by turning left at any of the well-marked return trails that will take you back to the trailhead. Lot’s of tall vegetation and “tunnels” this time of year. There were times when I wished I had worn sleeves. But it’s August in Texas! My advice is to hit the trail early in the AM as much of this trail is shaded and pleasant before the sun gets too high. My GPS registered a little over 6.5 miles to the turnaround at Cheyenne Circle. One option for a loop that’s shorter than doubling back on the return trail is to ride back to the trailhead on paved roads by going up Cheyenne to Pocahontas which connects to Cross Timbers. A little more than 3 miles gets you back to the trailhead on 377 and makes for a total of 10 miles which I did in a 1:30. A good alternative when you’re time constrained but want to go deep to reach a couple of the more technical stretches. About those rocks not far from the final turnaround: I passed a guy who blew out his rear derailleur and snapped a chain. Not a great place for a major technical blowout! Happy riding.

Nice easy loop with a beautiful view of the lake.

Nice Easy Loop, Trail, watch out for orb spiders, bring plenty of bug spray :-)

loved the beachy parts. the off the beaten path trails are the best if you want to be physically challenged, but just moderately. view of the lake is beautiful.

A great little set of trails packed into a beautiful little park. Some of the best east Texas has to offer.

This trail is relatively wide, about a third of it is single track with some technical sections. There are some interesting rock formations and lake viewpoints. Appropriate for kids mountain biking.

Trail is listed as a DORBA sponsored mtb trail. Trail is overgrown, poorly marked, and offers little shade. There are some viewpoints of the river but the river isn't really a saving grace for this location. Some areas are very sandy. I suppose it's nice for locals looking for a quiet place, this is definately not a destination trail.

**50% of trails closed between March 1st to September 1st due to endangered species nesting.**

Awesome park.
Don’t plan to hike beyond 6.2 miles unless you go before or after the bird nesting season. I’ll be back to experience the rest of the trails once it’s after September.

The first mile or two is fantastic scenery. It drops off a little on the big loop in the middle where there is nothing but tall flowers/grass blocking views and trapping in heat (Summer). We almost got run over by a bike at this area because there’s no way to see someone else coming around the thin corners. Other than that though, great place for a walk, workout, to get away and enjoy the outdoors.

Good trail but I prefer more of the wooded trails that are off the beaten path. I found a few while hiking but I would rather do the whole trail through the trees and not on gravel roads. It was fun and a very basic trail. The trail is about 10 feet wide most of the way until you get out towards the far end of the loop. Only saw lizards and birds nothing really interesting but still had fun.

8.96 miles completed.

Beautiful walk! Worth it to reach the end of the trail for the sight of the lake. I would highly recommend to friends and family!

Excellent trail running with some challenges to keep me focused on my pacing up and down hills. Beautiful scenery and able to forget the world as I ran.

A short boardwalk through the coastal marsh, the trail is easy and great for kids. I visited in winter, the mosquitos were not a problem and no gators. Kids loved seeing the blue crabs cruising along the clear waters of the lagoon. Great for birdwatching.

Great place to take dog, plenty of creek crossings and shaded areas to enjoy area. Downside is that the secret is out and can get pretty crowded.

We love this trail. It's the closest to our home and offers a great place exercise and be with nature. Clean and not difficult.

One of my favorite tralis to Ruck so far! lots of great scenery, very well marked and maintained. Great space to clear your head, and next to no trail traffic on a quiet monday.

Wonderful nature get-away in North Houston area

I love this trail!! Not highly trafficked, clean restrooms, great views of the lake and you see lots of wildlife...birds, rabbits, cayotes.

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!
