Great trail, absolutely beautiful in many places. My only complaint is that it is not well marked at all. Trying to find it was difficult as was staying on the right path at times. Worth doing many times over!

Cute little trail. Go during week to have it all to yourself!

Not sure who did the overall review but thus is outside the Tyler City Limits and no leashes are required for dogs. There are over 10 miles of mountain bike trails with numerous routes through the woods.

A great running, walking or biking trail with a safe environment. Perfect for morning and day use. Great for evening to dusk use and it is well lit. Tons of benches along the paths and a picnic area with bbq pits. Both park trails connect together with bridges that go underneath streets for continuous use. Friendly pedestrians and a park for kids to play in with restrooms. Also exercise equipment along the pathways from simple pushups to sit-ups to even bench press machines. Rose Rudman trail has plenty of shade avoiding the sun for those hot days of running or walking. For those that love outdoor trails this is one to visit. The smell of cedar and nature adds to the experience of taking a nice stroll on one of my favorite trails. Great picture taking spots along the way. There is a quiet spot on the Rudman side up a steep hill that is great for walking and excellent for a scenic rest. If you are into Geocaching these two trails have excellent finds.

This park has great options, if you want to walk, jog, or mountain bike.

Awesome, I go almost every day! Nice friendly people and the city does a great job keeping the trails in good shape.

I never get tired of it! Easy trail and great views.

Good park to hike in. Took my dog Bruno who had a great time. A lot of smells to keep him occupied. It was over 90 and rather humid but we were able to stay on shaded trails the whole time. Enough breeze to stay comfortable while moving but not so much when we decided to break for water. An overall enjoyable experience.

I've ridden this trail for about 3 years now and I still find it challenging in some places. Nice tight turns...some good sized hills...a couple of creek crossings. It's a well maintained trail that never disappoints.

For a paved trail in the middle of a city it is quite pleasant. The trail follows along a creek through light woods and fields. It is quite accessable and includes a playground and exercise equipment, so something for everyone. Given the location visitors should expect high amounts of traffic.

Beautiful scenery. Beaver dam and natural spring. Path was pretty wet which slowed us down a bit.

Nice trail all the way around the lake

Very easy hike with just a couple of steep hills.

This is my favorite trail so far. Maybe because I live by it, but there’s SO many different trails you can take. Even when the park is crowded, you rarely pass people once you cross that tree line.

This is a combination trail which allows for a relatively easy walk on the graveled loop with lots of dirt trail side-excursions possible. I've photographed the lake across the road numerous times but this was my first jaunt on the trail itself and I will be back. It affords lovely views and a chance to see deep woods which would be hard to hike otherwise.

New additions to loop C has stretched the mountain bike trail out to an available 7 miles. Great addition. A bit sandy right now but after a couple rains it should lots of fun. There is new signage to help direct you on loop C also.

I walked this last Sunday with my 4 and 7 year old boys. They both took a great nap after. LOL!

one of the best trails in the local area to prepare for mountain hiking

Started out great. But, poorly marked trails. Got lost and ended up in a housing Subdivision and another Trailhead called Blue Ridge adding 3 miles to walk back to Faulkner Trailhead. All together we did 7 miles! Be Aware. Locals know this too.

Love it for a flatter run than some of the other local trails. Pretty trails. Always see deer and other wildlife. Never too crowded.

We did loop A which was 2.5 miles or so. Great variety of hills and climbs not too rocky or steep either. Extremely humid at this park so I highly recommend a morning or evening ride specially in the summer time. I have never sweat so much in my life. Take plenty of water and your also supposed to pay a park fee. Beautiful trees!!!!!

Very nice trail. Well marked and groomed. A bit confusing at times with many forks in the trail. Great shade and locations to stop and take pics.

Great family trail.

A little crowded during peak hours but otherwise good with kids and dog.

We did all the trails here.. the nicest was the lake trail however the longer two A and B were fairly nice. Just a ton of bikes and not much room of the trail.

I give this trail 5 stars, however, I give this description of the trail 1 star. First of all, this trail isn't called "Tyler State Park Loop Trail". The actual name of this (hiking only) trail is called the LAKESHORE Trail. Secondly, the map of the trail is correct, except according to the official trail map issued by Tyler State Park the trail is a 2.1 mile loop and the trailhead actually starts in the Brown's Point day use area of the park. This trail does NOT include the A loop, B loop, C loop, D loop, EZ Loop or Blackjack Nature trails. As for the Lakeshore Trail, it is quite a beautiful trail, mostly flat on the north side of the lake, but quite hilly on the south side of the lake. Beaver Pond on the far east side is a real treat and has a really great view of both the lake as well as the runoff ponds behind the lake. Great place to view birds and turtles!!! The walk across the spillway also has nice views of the lake. You will pass 2 fishing piers along the way as well as an island and a playground. There used to be a 3rd fishing pier at the playground but it was recently torn down.

My husband and I hiked 1/16/17 with our two boys (5 and 2.5) and we really enjoyed our time there. We started hiking the C Loop and somehow ended up on the D Loop at the end! Still, it was a beautiful and somewhat challenging hike and we can't wait to do it again!
