The Ray Roberts Greenbelt offers abundant recreational opportunities as it follows the heavily wooded banks of the Trinity River, connecting two major lakes, Lake Lewisville at its southern tip and Ray Roberts Lake at its northern end. Along the northern half of the route, from near FM 455 to FM 428, the trail splits in two; on the river's west side, a hard-surface trail is provided for bikers and walkers, while an equestrian path can be found along its eastern bank.
Parking and Trail Access
A parking lot is available at each end of the trail (on Highway 380 and on FM 455) and mid-trail off FM 428. Each parking area has restrooms, picnic tables and river access for kayaks and canoes.
