Garland, Texas Map

My favorite place in the area for a short run. I usually do the loop that you walk in from toward the back of the parking lot - think it’s about 1.7 miles total. Well-maintained and definitely makes me feel like I’m not in DFW!

Nice mostly-wooded loop. DORBA keeps the trail well-maintained.

good trail for runners and walkers.


To all you hikers that keep complaining, take a minute to think who maintains the trail.. (DORBA).
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!!

Beautiful non-technical trail. A great way to start or finish a workout.

Great place to ride

excellent long walk for city folk. i wouldnt call it a true hiking trail. more i like a biking path in the middle of the suburbs.

Awesome I didn’t even want to leave! I really cannot wait to come again!

Did the North Loop first so in comparison this was really boring. It’s a nice trail for a walk very even and maintained, but not challenging or extraordinary.

This was a wonderful trail. I stopped and looped back at firewheel because it appeared north of that was just open field which I do not enjoy at all. There is a part on the far west that was near the back of a neighborhood but it was just a short portion of the trail. Otherwise a good walk in the woods feeling with lots of little surprises.

Great time with the wife and kiddos!

No review so decided to take a chance. Was okay. Better than walking the concrete jungle. Mainly a trail for mountain bikers. Dirt path with many switch backs. Along highway and residential areas. If you can ignore the plethora of trash it could be pretty. Hikes through woods, plains, along stream and river. Watch for bikers. They were all nice. Few hikers and runners. Can’t go if rains.

We had an awesome time exploring this trail. There were a lot of bikers but still good for hikers too. Lots of pretty scenery and some interesting obstacles to maneuver. It’s not the most child friendly trail, but we managed!

Loop 1 great for running. Mostly bikers through here.

Nice short trek through the woods. Saw a rat snake along the way.

Dog crap everywhere. Creek full of garbage. Ok if you live near by and just need a quick place to walk your dog, but not good for anything else.

Super quick and easy trail. Nice and clean with lots of shade.

Just walked this path with my husky. The super wide sidewalk takes you from Holford to North Garland Ave there and back at a steady/decent pace will probably take you about 30 minutes, we also walked the smaller paths on the trail near the Holford side and that added another 15 minutes or so. All in all the trail was nice but wish the city would expand the main path but I understand why they can't. It was definitely clean throughout the paths we took and we did come across some scat people either left behind from their pets or it was an animal. Happy hiking everyone.

The mapped out trail was not what we had expected based on the description. We probably should have stuck to the super wide sidewalk rather than trying to follow the mapped path. As beginners trying to get in shape, that mapped path definitely wasn't "easy" like it shows here. I might try it again and stick to that extra wide path wherever it goes.

One of my favorite mountain biking trails that offers a good mix for hiking as well. The south side has very little elevation change while the north side offers more elevation change. Don't forget your bug spray, some areas are heavily infested with mosquitos.

The paved path is nice and really wide, probably wide enough for at least five people to walk side by side comfortably. Along the paved path the trees were tall shading the trail and was pretty well maintained. We did come across a fallen tree along the path. We started from Holford Rd. towards N. Garland avenue which according to the gps tracker about 1 mile. We crossed the intersection and went into the unpaved forest trail. We actually walked a mile into it before deciding we should turn back around. The path was very narrow and foliage was extending into the path. We went along the creek side path and crossed paths with a black and yellow snake as well as had to walk across yet another fallen down tree and a mini creek that got our feet a bit wet. The unpaved trail was a little intimidating and truly felt like we were lost in a forrest.

I would stick to the paved path if I were a beginner. I don't think the unpaved path loops back around either so be aware if you trek into that part.

This hike was taken on 8/28/17 around the time of Hurricane Harvey. The trail wasn't too soft and started to rain right after we were done. This was my second trail in DFW, the first being Arbor Hill trails which had a much less dangerous unpaved trail. I gave this trail 4 stars for having both paved and unpaved. I took one star off for not having much information on the path, as well as it being slightly dangerous. There was debris on the trail and the creek had quite a bit of filth in it as


The trail past north garland road starts at 3:30 but does not look like how it does in this video!

A nice walk

I followed the directions from this app to get here and it led me no where so I got upset. I looked it up on google and it was about 11 minutes away from where this app led me. Once you get there it is a great running place not to hard. Wouldn't go alone if you get scared easy but had some nice views!

Approximately 13 miles of trail, can be a little confusing at first if you aren't sure of the loop system. Trail was overgrown in some areas. Pretty decent trail for being in the city. Practically no elevation change.
