Hiked the 11 miles from the east end in Weatherford to Garner. Wide and very well maintained. Path was flat and not really much elevation change, so makes for an easy hike/walk.

45-minutes from north Ft Worth, it's our go-to when we don't have time to go too far, but want a nice walk. Sure it gets busy during the summer months because it is shaded, but it's well worth the time. We take our dachshunds and they have a great time.

One of the most rewarding hikes I have ever done.

This was my first time to go hiking and I loved it! My new favorite thing!!

Open, well-marked, right in Austin.

Nice trail. Lake on one side. Occasional houses on the other. Nice easy going. Wouldn’t do if it rained; it looks like it gets pretty mucky. Not many people on trail with us.

This was a great trail for our family. It is moderate level, but really nothing to difficult until the final ascent to the lighthouse itself. The trail and scenery continuously change, so it does not get repetitive or boring. Definitely bring lots of fluids and snacks for everyone.

Love it! My dog loves the trails.

really fun trail to take the kids on.

perfect to take a long walk with the dogs and "get lost".

I took my German Shepard out here to burn some energy and we both loved it. The trails are beautiful. Had one issue.... a ladies dog attacked mine for no reason. Keep your dog on a leash if it isn’t friendly towards other animals.

Was really nice. First one we’ve done. Pulled in and parking lot was full, so we were worried. But, found space to ourselves. Nice to have option of dirt trails and paved. Spent 2.5 hours there finding plenty to do.

SUCH an enjoyable day!

Great trail a little crowded but expected since is the beginning or Spring Break, take mosquitoe repellent, I am definitely going back to enjoy
Spring creek with my dog

I enjoyed this trail for running or just out walking your dog

Long and flat. Nice to have a longish trail close and it is well maintained. Probably more fun for bikes. Somewhat monotonous to hike.

Great trail.

Easy trail, fast walking able to finish in right under 2 hours. Must go past the end to climb up to structure. Trail is good for dogs, minus climbing at the end. Recommend March/April and late fall for hiking to avoid blazing heat.

Flat and paved, good trail for long runs! Lots of bikes, but all were very courteous!

I enjoyed this hike overall in that I didn’t pass a single soul in the 4.6 miles I went round-trip. It may have had something to do with the fact it was the second day without rain, as I did have to maneuver around several flooded areas along the trail. There was the perfect mixed bag of grassy fields, rocky trails, inclines and declines in the trail path for my liking. I saw an armadillo run off into the woods, and plenty of bobcat, deer and hog prints. The only thing I didn’t care for was how there wasn’t any shore line paths. I saw the lake twice through the trees and that was it. Overall it was a challenging trail for me.

great views on the way, but a very disappointing ending.

Good trail to walk your pups and get some energy out

this trail is pretty nice. you can almost double the length if you do the additional section (not shown on this map, but marked at a trail map). Pros: fairly even most of the way, lots of trees and woods, fishing spots on hickory creek, nice little ups and downs, wide enough trail, lots of off trail meandering places. Cons: even after a light rain, trails get pretty muddy. black gumbo + red clay makes most of the trail messy esp after rain showers. loved sharing the trail with horses, but they muck up the trail pretty badly if it's wet. there's a good amount of trash along the way (big trash too, like rusted out metal pieces) which isn't as nice. about 1/3 of the trail is backing up to houses, which isn't my favorite, and a lot of city noises. still, overall, a nice trail for inside the city wandering!

Must continue on past the end of the trail and go up to the lighthouse. It is a short steep climb but very worth it.

pretty busy in nice weather, but lovely trail.

great view!!!

so many options! easy to navigate and well maintained

This is a private, equine-only trail located on the C-Bar Stables ranch. It is not open to the public and this listing should be removed from AllTrails.

Very easy trail. Gradual incline throughout trail but nothing crazy. So neat to see the mines. Definitely a repeat trip.

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.
