Ray Roberts Greenbelt

Trail Map

Description Suggest an Edit

Note: Per the Ray Roberts Lake State Park website, "Due to prior flood damage, the FM 380 section of the Greenbelt Corridor is closed. The hard surface trail of the Greenbelt Corridor between Hwy 428 and Hwy 455 is open, but the equestrian trail remains closed. Work continues to repair severe erosion issues and washed out bridges. The only open equestrian trailhead is at Elm Fork Unit. The trail is open between the Elm Fork Unit and Bluestem Grove (in Isle Du Bois). Please contact the park for more information.” 

Located northeast of Denton, 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.

We've ridden this trail numerous times, and for those looking for a suitable cross country meander for even the most novice of cyclers, this is a good one. You do not need a hardcore mountain bike to enjoy this trail, though street bike riders will not ...read more
