No trail. Seriously. We hunted. There is a park called love circle but the trailhead leads to an empty lot with no way to walk farther.

The main trail is definitely the highlight. Very pretty, lots of wildlife (including birds, deer, armadillos, lizards). Great views of the lake and not too much elevation where just about everyone can enjoy the entire loop. One of the best trails in North Texas.

Amazing kept trail. No dogs allowed.

Awesome trail clean and very easy to get around. You can walk or ride your bike. A lot of great scenery.

Wish it allowed dogs!!

A trail close to home that I visit often and have hiked many times. I will return soon.

Love this beautiful trail!

Park is completely shut down & locked up & the southern most parking area doesn’t even have a road going to it anymore! It’s all overgrown so it obviously hasn’t been accessible for quite some time! Totally wasted my time & gas!!

Great for a nice walk. Easy path and saw some deer along the way.

We took our dog and she had a lot of fun. There are a lot of bikes to watch out for if you are going to be walking but other than that, it's a really beautiful trail.

Beautiful scenic hike in DFW area. Very clean too.

Rode from University Street to Downtown Fort Worth. Seven miles round trip. Fun easy ride.

Beautiful view but like a previous review, there is a bunch of trash and way too much broken glass all over the trail. No markers either.

Nice trails, love all the switch backs. The lack of trail markers wasn’t a big deal to me because there’s a map at the trailhead. This place could be so beautiful if it weren’t for all the trash. Unfortunately, we share this planet with lazy fucks that don’t respect the beauty that surrounds us.

Great if you’re walking with a small child and/or stroller.

Nice trail. Some steep hills to get the heart going. Great views of the lake. You can get close to the deer.

Lots of trash, no trail markers, not appealing.

Nice little paved walking trail. I also had trouble locating the starting point. the trail is marked better than the roads. At the fork I headed for the south obsevation deck. There is a dirt path for mountain bikes but I don't recommend hikers taking it as there is no room to step aside if a bike comes through. Nice path, plenty of shade and several porta-potties. Great trail if you have mini-humans riding in a stroller.

3-16-18 Center and Refuge is open, only the West Riverbottom trail is closed. It is a nice place to hike, close to the city. It's Texas scenery so, nothing fabulous. Couldn't find any prairie dogs, but the bison are easily viewed.

Went with my husband. First thing we noticed was all the broken glass everywhere. It was ridiculous. Then the garbage all over, and I usually stop and pick the trash up but there was too much on this trail. There was 1 trash can that we came across along the trail. It’s unmarked as well. We passed 2 groups of people who were trying to get down to the water. We lived in CO for 7 years and hiked numerous trails within the springs and have never seen as much garbage and broken glass. We call it Hep C falls now. It was disappointing. My husband and I agreed, if the city took any time at all clearing some of the paths, marking some trails, and cleaning up this place it could be great.

Short and scenic. Not stroller friendly but suitable for small kids.

Would be a favorite trail if it wasn’t for the trash and glass. I wish they could clean it up. :(

Love it

This is definitely a walking, running or bike trail, not hiking. It’s a really great trail if that’s what you’re looking for. It’s very well maintained and paved the entire way.

I went in the beginning of March so the scenery was pretty much dead trees with no shade whatsoever during the day. I might try this again later in the year once the everything has greened up. There were several spots I bet would be beautiful once it does.

Amazing trail, my kids really enjoyed!! I only wish they had more seating throughout the trail and allowed dogs.

Definitely the favorite trail I've found anywhere in the area so far. Terrain/topography are steady and mildly strenuous for walking, fairly intense for running. The landscape is beautiful. Very well maintained. We go often.

Great local trails to train on if you’re looking for more rugged hiking

We loved this trail! Nice length and lots of ups and downs in elevation. Nicely gravel trail most of the way, but a ton of places to go off trail wandering. We saw half a dozen deer right off the main trail, there's also fishing and many options for side loops to make it longer. It was moderately trafficked, a lot of kids, but very clean and plenty of places to stop. We liked the big rocks to climb and look over the lake. This is one of my favorite hiking spots in DFW. Pros: moderately challenging terrain, beautiful scenery, lots of off -trail hiking, having the lake there is nice for warmer weather hikes, wildlife spotting, not much trash, and no bikes! (i hate when I almost get run over by mountain bikes! lol) Cons: moderate - heavy traffic so it's not super quiet; some of the markers are a bit confusing. Definitely recommend trekking poles if you're planning to go off trail, and watch for the slippery mud after rain. Overall, this is one of my favorite trails in DFW for all around day hiking with less experienced hikers.

Depends on what you're looking for - If you're looking for an actual hike, this is more of a casual stroll with an 8' wide concrete pathway through the city. If you're wanting to just put some miles on (foot or bike) then this is a great way to do it. We always stay on the western side of FW between Panther Island and the FW Zoo area and we've always been safe. The trail is well kept, mown and clean. FW does a great job with its maintenance. Plenty of restaurants along the way if you get hungry, or want to make a mini "destination hike" ;)

Im more of a wilderness backpacker, but for what it is, the Trinity River Trail is pretty nice. Family friendly.
