Undiscovered jewel for hiking. Much of it is through thick juniper but you get a good amount of hills and lake views.

My favorite trails in N. Texas. Awesome fast and flowing downhills make the climbs well worth the effort. Fairly challenging and not for the timid.

kicked my butt. great trail.

Great trail! Ups and downs, branches out, great views.. watch out for snakes though .. I had a waaay too close encounter with a rattler.

Great changes in elevation. Well maintained.

Great trail! We loved the different elevations, it allowed us to see some incredible views. Majority of the trail is shaded which allows you to enjoy the hike even in the hot summer days. There was also different lookout spots to capture some awesome views of the lake.

Great trail, good climbs with scenery and views that makes it worth it.

Agree that the map is incomplete, trail goes further west, just shy of 17 miles total on the full loop

Trail map is incomplete.
Trails continue west out onto the peninsula from the trails currently shown on the map
There are approximately 16 miles of trails. Great views and elevation changes to keep things interesting

Moderate trails, beautiful views. Make sure and bring water as you won't find any on the trail. Too many people hiking with aggressive dogs off leash and smoking on trails (lots of cigarette butts on trails, guess the recent fires didn't make an impact on them) It's a shame folks don't follow rules and put others and the area at risk.

A great workout. Fairly easy to follow. There are a couple trail forks that can be confusing but you are just walking around a big hill. So a mapping app on your phone will keep you on route. Took a while to understand the naming of the trails.
Lots to see. I love the sites along the trail that show how nature shapes our earth with wind and rain.
The trails are a workout. Take plenty of water. Be prepared. Be honest with yourself about your physical condition.

Starting the hike from Bug Beach, the trail was full of tall weeds with burs that were completely covering our shoes and sticking into our skin between the tops of our hiking boots and knees. Less than 100 yards in we had to turn around. Maintaining the trail is a necessity for it to be usable for hikers. No wonder NO ONE was hiking the Possum Kingdom trails.

Compared to trails in Dallas, I'd rate these trails hard. The views were awesome and the hike was just the right amount of challenging.

Many beautiful views and the trail is very scenic. I liked the informational signs and the general upkeep of the trail. Went a few months ago with my GSD and had a pretty bad rattlesnake scare, so definitely keep an eye on and off the trail and especially on what are usually tree roots crossing the path.

We spent a day trying to find this trail only to learn from locals that it doesn't exist. The map on the app simply follows the Brazos River and is not passable.

Beautiful scenery. Saw several deer. The elevation is very gradual so it wasn't as tough as I thought it would be.

love these trails. They get the heart pumping and the scenery is some of the best in North texas.

Great trails, well blazed, great views, no crowds.

The Brazos below Possum Kingdom Lake is a great, little-known escape. Great scenery that everyone seems to compare to what they would call "the old west", often times the statement that "it doesn't seem like Texas" has been made as well.

Only complaint is the morons that don't take their trash with them when they leave.
