Great trail with plenty of inclines, declines and switchbacks to make things interesting. I hiked the 11-ish miles from Twin Coves park entrance to Rockledge park. Started early and the trail was mostly empty. But once I reached the MADD shelter around 9am, the amount of bike traffic really picked up. I had a bike passing me every 1-2 mins, though most of them were very courteous and gave me a verbal heads up, and how many were following them. Do not recommend headphones on this trail.
Trail is very well maintained, and offers some amazing views of the lake (especially the beginning and end of the trail).

Very good trail especially given how close it is to where I live. However, it can get a little crowded, especially with bikers. It’s pretty, some elevation changes (for Texas), and not too short.

Easy beginner hike.

Nice trail to hike, unfortunately too many bikers!

We had a great time! The mountain bikers were so considerate. The trails were awesome and the views splendid!

Nice clean trail. Kid and pet friendly. There were. Lot of bike riders, but they were all friendly and gave warnings when passing.

Currently open daylight hours Sat & Sun. This is a great shoreline to walk! plenty of parking. $5 admission for cars & $1 for pedestrians if you don't have an annual city parks pass. The lake is beautiful, the birds are plentiful, very peaceful. This is a great place to kayak, fish, there is an excellent ropes obstacle playground, new bathhouses, several picnic shelters. When the park reopens, there will be tent camping and more activities such as volleyball, tetherball, kayak rentals, campfires, etc.

Loved it!!

Definitely an off-road biking trail. Don't wear headphones, you need to hear bikers coming up. Most will call out, but newbies won't. Traffic direction is designated for bikes, I was told hikers can opt to go against traffic if they chose to.

Good views, nice trails. I will go back.

Five dollar fee at park trailhead.

Nice trail to run - great views - you will be sharing the trail with bikers also . But everyone very pleasant.

A nice, winding trail, however hikers are out of place here. Every two or three minutes I was hopping off the trail to let bikers pass.

Great trail, definitely moderate. Be prepared to constantly dodge mountain bikers, most are nice enough to let you know they're coming but not all of them are that considerate and its not a loop so they're behind you on the hike back. Headphones not recommended because you really need to be aware of them on the blind curves.

One of my favorite trails to hike! Just make sure to pack lots of water in the summer and avoid high noon.

Easy walk with the dog on a very cold afternoon. Great trail, 99% paved with center line for bikes.

Actually more like 21-22 miles in total now.

I headed west of Walnut Grove to the Trophy Club Equestrian Trails. It was beautiful. I can't wait to take this hike in the spring. Need to wear rain boots. I had to take off my shoes to cross the creek a couple of times. Two bridges are out. Probably could have crossed one section if I'd had my rain boots.

Great views of the lake, pretty easy trail and would be get difficult to get lost as Horseshoe crosses a paved road multiple times throughout. Good signage throughout as well. Great for walking, hiking and jogging.

Great trail for beginners. I have never done mountain biking before and this was the perfect place to start. I like that there are also paved trails and they are wide. Not too crowded.

The trail was great! a little dusty but not so sandy that you lose traction. There were a few areas that were difficult to navigate on a rigid frame, most of the difficulty was encountered on loop 6 where the boulders were more prevalent. The trail is moderately shaded, and runs along the shoreline with some waterway crossing. This trail would be great for trail running, or hiking. There are many options to exit the trail which provides the ability to tailor your mileage to your liking.
