I like this trail as it is not filled with Mountain bikers. A little more challenging than the flat purple trail and has a few steep step ups/downs... but a novice can get through easily.

You can color combo this in any color palette you want... Blue and Red will have mountain bikers, while orange does not, but it is considered moderate in my opinion.

Rerating this trail... Not completely easy as there are some sections that have been eroded to make it hard for a "easy" walker to navigate. Sections of this should be upgraded to moderate, but combine this with blue trail and it is a great workout.

Definitely a moderate trail, there are some super tricky sections if you are a newbie or have trouble climbing or stepping up/down. But it is a decent workout. Mountain bikers use the trails, so keep your ears open. They don't slow down for us walkers.

This is one of my favorite spots in the city! It is full of life on the trail and on the water- tons of amazing city view photo opportunities during a sunset or night hike- take a flashlight as the trail isn’t lit!

Felt like we were in an old western movie set, nice hike out on Juniper cliff side trail and hike back on Juniper riverside trail.

I went in not knowing what to expect. I simply wanted to enjoy a walk outdoors that was not on cement. This delivered. There are elevation changes as you walk down to a creek and back up again (oh and across the creek at a few points). I did reference the trail map on my phone so that made it much easier. I could see how simply following the signs would make for slight confusion. The waterfall was a little sparse but still pretty. I would definitely go again.

Parts of the trail where little more than just a mowed path. I think it's really just there to add miles to trail system.

Nice small trail. Great for beginners since most of trail is concrete.

Ran from mile marker 5.25 to about mile marker 2.5, but I took the off-trail trails. Just past the huge sports fields, to the south at the bridge is a trail into the woods, comes out at another bridge at Champions Park. But then at that bridge, there are more trails to the west, some elevation changes and plenty of twists and turns, and rocky and rooty. Then I ran the main trail to Brushy Creek lake Park, where right before the three way intersection and bridge, there's a trail to the north. It's totally for biking, but runners use it too and it's all cool; it's very twisty and turny, and some rocks.

I've ran there twice while on the road and plan to as I go through Austin today. I've ran one loop and two loops previously, I ran the full length both times for a 10 and 20 miler. Excited about returning as it's an awesome place to run!!

Decently fun trail, a real gem in Lubbock.

A wonderful family hike to Balanced Rock. Kids between ages 4-10 all successfully completed the hike. The gravel road to the trailhead was a little rough the last few miles. Big family fun!!!

Camped at 5 mile camp site. Well maintained sites with multiple space for fire pits. Well marked trails with moderate elevations.

Great hike; we did a combination of the trails since the Purple Trail was washed out in one area. There were hills enough to make the hike a little more challenging than most around Houston.
We were there on a Saturday, and there was heavy traffic with mountain bikers and unleashed dogs. In a few places there is not a lot of room to move out of the way for them, (and some do not slow down at all) so I would hesitate to bring small children. It might be better during the week, but we haven't tried it yet.

We really enjoyed the varying scenery and thought the 1850s cemetery was fascinating. There was very light traffic on a beautiful Saturday. We will hike here again.
There WILL be mud if we've recently had rain, but it was pretty dry when we were there.

Gorgeous scenery and an excellent getaway!

pretty neat trail. a little diificult at the top due to loose material. disappointed that you can no longer see any pictographs. please don't let your dog poop in the trail.

Lots of trash, no trail markers, not appealing.

Fantastic trail with great views!

Very rocky trail, but worth the view of Gorman Falls at the end!! Would definitely go back.

fairly easy - but a maze of trails (with the map only being at the trail head it is easy to feel lost, BUT YOU'RE NOT, just stay on the path) lots it elevation change - gorgeous waterfall and creek. Strongly recommend if you're looking for a an hour (or so) hike.
No bathrooms or trash disposal along trail so prepare - also a variety of things prohibited - so leave the picnics and furry friends at home!

This park has tons of trails from paved and flat to hills, rocks and dirt. Had a great time exploring the side trails today. Also saw many deer close up.

Love to go hiking with my dog here. We try our hardest to stay out of the bike paths because there are always a bunch of them there. It can be unavoidable at times, but everyone is pretty friendly. I love the challenging spots here!

One of my coolest hikes with my kids to this date. its a hard hike for kiddos 7 and 8, but if they like to explore... a scratch and bruce its treasure.

Great hike... a little busy... we are baby boomers in 50ies and 60ies and made in in. 2 1/2 hours... do doable if de entry fit... we also started at bottom
And walked up and back... well marked but no restroom or potable water... so be prepared

Plenty of twists, turns and hills to keep the many miles interesting. The terrain and views change throughout, and even runs alongside a large creek for a while. This trail is really a hidden gem in the north Fort Worth area.
