The White Rock Creek Trail (North) is part of the city of Dallas's trail system. The trail travels between W. Lawther Drive at Mockingbird near White Rock Lake Park north to Valley View Park on Hillcrest in North Dallas. The trail generally follows White Rock Creek and passes through neighborhoods and several parks, including Valley View, Anderson Bonner, Orbiter and Harry Moss.

At the lake, the trail meets up with the White Rock Lake Trail at the northern tip of the lake. It also links up with the Cottonwood Trail where Cottonwood and White Rock creeks meet (south of Forest Lane).

Valley View Park, off of Hillcrest Road and just north of I-635, offers plenty of parking at the northern end of the trail. There is also a parking lot south of I-635.

You can also find parking at Greenville and Royal, as well as off Merriman Road near Abrams.
