I’ve hiked this before with my dog and would consider it moderate, not easy. It is very rocky, has steep inclines and declines, and also very narrow in some areas. There are also several little wooden bridges made by local mtb groups. It’s a beautiful trail and pretty fun since it’s not flat. I can state this is not an “Easy” mtb trail and I likely won’t bike it until we gain a little more experience with mountain biking.

Beautiful single track trail. A few views of the lake. Lots of shade!

Fun trail with a bit of terrain change but not very diverse in scenery. Perfect for spring or early fall hikes, a nice reprieve from the city and not bad considering there aren’t tons of developed trail systems in the area. Be advised that this is a shared path. Watch out for a multitude of mountain bikers, many of whom think they are riding in the X-Games and don’t bother to announce themselves and expect you to move out of the way for them.

Good trail, for running. Love the hills.

~ Edan's Trailing Adventure Review ~

My husband and I try one new trail a weekend, below are our thoughts about Purple Coneflower / Flowermound Trail:

Ease of Location: ** 2 Stars; Directional map within All Trails app doesnt take you to the entrance. The best thing to do is analyze the trail map via the below link and set your GPS to the surrounding park of your choice.
https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=http://www.flower-mound.com/DocumentCenter/View/11420&ved=0ahUKEwjizuPv6PDSAhVB6iYKHYYRAZYQFgglMAE&usg=AFQjCNGo9Wm3jjKP8o3bFJoBni6BFT72hQ&sig2=sdNqI91w8r24baWmVpOFFA

Trail: *** 3 Stars; the trail itself is paved and wide enough for a couple to comfortably take its path. Although some app users tagged this particular trail as hiking appropriate, we didnt see any dirt trails or hiking opportunitues. The path, however, is kept very clean and marked with hip-height wooden posts that say "Purplecone Flower Trail"

Fun: ** 2 Stars; The trail is 8 miles long and we only walked a 4 mile section, however there's nothing much to see other than the back of a school and the back of people's houses. We did pass a very cute pond with LOTS of turtles, other than that it was 4 miles of nothing particularly special.

Special Tip ~ Not a good trail for listening to headphones. There's a lot bicycle riders on this trail of all ages. From adults riding for exercise to groups of neighborhood children whizzing by. Some people announce themselves as they pass but most don't. Unless you want to get run-over, best not to wear anything that would inhibit hearing what's around you.

flat and paved. easy to walk with no traffic

If you aren't a mountain biker, avoid this trail. Nice enough otherwise.

Five minutes from my house!! I love these trails when they are not closed for construction or due to flooding from Lake Grapevine. The main road is a great walk. The trails are great. I could hike for hours

One day I will make my from end to end! Great view especially along the lake at sunrise. Paved trail that ventures though a few nice neighborhoods. Heavy bike traffic, some water stations.

Trails were nice and so was the scenery, but this is not a hiker only trail and has a lot of mtn bikers to keep an eye on...
