Caddo Trail

Well Shaded Trail

May, 2024 by katelynbdavis96

I was pleasantly surprised by this trail. Almost the entire trail is covered with trees like a boulevard with a stream on one side and upscale homes on the other. There are two points where you have to cross the street, but the trail is well marked on the street and I never felt unsafe.

Central Trail (TX)

Great, Low-traffic trail

April, 2024 by pv9hft8nyz

This trail is great if you’re looking for a safe, urban trail. All of the streets that intersect the trails have clear cross walks/lights which made me feel more comfortable with my dog. My dog is quite reactive so I’m always looking for trails that have fewer people on them but feels safe and this was exactly that!

Lakefront Trail

Great ride

March, 2024 by womble87

Rode the trail on my E-bike from Farmersville for 17miles. You start to run in to big mud puddles after 10 miles as of March 30 but I’m sure that will dry up in the next month or so.

Cotton Belt Trail

Colleyville city- Cotton Belt Trail Review

March, 2024 by leytonlehner

I walked along the Cotton Belt trail with my sister and father on a nice Thursday night. The trail happens to go through our neighborhood and area (as well as Hurst, Grapevine, and North Richland Hills.) and thought it would be a wonderful experience to go on. The Cotton Belt trail is home to many attractions and gentle scenery along its paths. From what I can see from the Colleyville portion of the path, most of the trail is kept clean by the community, and the people who live along the trail enjoy the walks they get; However, I did see trash in the brush around the path. A thing I believe that could be improved is possibly wider paths for more people to walk on at once, but also keep a distance from others. The trail provides trash cans along the path, as well as bags for dog poop. The Colleyville trail still has a lot of wildlife, while also being in an urban area. I believe this trail is a great place to go and see nature outside while enjoying it thoroughly. It's great for children of all ages, and even for a quiet walk away from the troubles of life. It's a wonderful place to go and I thoroughly enjoyed the gift and creation from God, and I felt more connected with him and the community as I enjoyed the amazing experience they had given me.

Furneaux Creek Orange Trail

Nice path

March, 2024 by janicejoy1

This trail is pretty long and seems safe! It’s scenic and has cute picnic spots too.

Oak Point Park & Nature Preserve Trail

Great trails and bird watching.

December, 2023 by jpetersontx

Perfect fall day for 12 miles of adventure with my dog. We enjoy the wide paved trails and even the hiking trails now that the snakes are less active. Saw a few ducks, and a great blue heron.

Campion Trail

Wide cycle and running path

September, 2023 by benjigator

There are a lot of people on the trail, and many people are walking their dogs. The path is really great.

If you are a clipped-in cyclist, the path can be dangerous because young children play on the path. Because of the winding and trees, it's hard to see people standing to talk or children lying down on it.

Generally, the parents who take their children to the path or picnic don't pay attention to cyclists or runners. Very young children are on the path with no adult supervision, or they step in front of bikes to be funny.

The leashed dogs generally lunge at runners and cyclists.

If the path is quiet, it's a great place. The public roads around this are dangerous for cyclists. Texas is generally a very dangerous place to cycle on public roads. I'm not sure how to change this.

Be safe!

Celebration Pass Hike and Bike Trail

easy and quick

September, 2023 by megansanchez25

Great ride on a weekday or weekend, extremely easy and enjoyable. It’s got some views but it’s more about the ride! Love it and it’s pet friendly

Spring Creek Trail (TX)

Gorgeous Trail

August, 2023 by kimbostian

This is a fun trail. Very well shaded and a clear stream trickling throughout the trail.

Central Trail (TX)

Very nice, short trail

July, 2023 by smiling1809

It's safe. It's not well lit at night. It takes practice but you'll need to figure out how to connect this trail to the Cottonwood Trail. If you can, you can ride all the way from Richardson to White Rock Lake.
