Chisholm Trail

Easy riding

March, 2020 by mmezedd_tl

The Chisholm Trail is a well maintained, paved, neighborhood ride that passes behind many beautiful houses and shopping areas and connects many small playgrounds. It is wide, well marked and mostly flat and goes underneath any major road so is a continuous ride. . It is mostly sunny and exposed. There is no parking at Chisholm Trail Park at one end but you can park in a nearby elementary school on Marchman Way. The easiest parking is at the other end at Harrington Park.The Bluebonnet trail links with it near the dog park. I have found conflicting sites stating the distance of the completed loop from Legacy Drive to Harrington park down one side and then back the other side of the creek.

Campion Trail

closer due to flooding.

March, 2020 by kennytavon

As I used to live right off of Lake Carolyn , this used to be my go to running, cycling and rollerblading trail. I have since moved yet I still return every so often. It is a great, wide paved trail but it’s not super crowded. Currently it is closed due to flooding of the Trinity and none of the access points are open at least in the Irving area

Cottonwood Creek Trail (Allen)

Great place for kids!

January, 2020 by slrange00

Went with the kids today. They are ages 13, 12 and 10. They had a blast. The majority of the trail also has a forested trail we took instead. That was a lot more fun than staying on the paved trail. As an extra bonus, we doing 2 of the 6 geocaches hidden close by!

A-train Rail Trail

Too many busy main roads to cross

December, 2019 by cookiwafer

I really had high expectations for this trail ... I really did. After looking at the photos posted here, I thought, wow, up my alley! They forgot to post the two huge dumps you pass, the industrial sections. The smell from both dumps .. shaking head here. We chose this because it was a longer trail, just rained and a paved trail would be perfect. However .... right off ... you have to cross multiple major busy intersections, also, quite a smaller intersecting streets where vehicles may come from either a curve or a hill and it's difficult to see them. I almost got hit, within a foot of the car, it really rattled me. There are some nice stretched, you get your momentum going and then ... then you have to cross another busy street. Waiting almost 5 mins at Hwy 121. I wish I would've been able to just ride the entire way without these inconveniences, it was rather annoying ... not to mention a bit more detrimental to your health due to high traffic areas.

Campion Trail

Long, lovely ride

October, 2019 by mmezedd_tl

It's nice to find a wide trail, well paved, concrete, mostly uncovered so hot in the summer. No great elevation changes so many cycle clubs on the route. There's an equestrian trail that parallels part of it near Spring Trail Park that makes for a nice mountain bike or running path. Passes through some nice suburban parks and wooded areas. Parking mid trail at the police station at the Spring Trail Park.

C. Shane Wilbanks Trail

Nice trail that's close to home...

September, 2019 by rocketsteve1965

The trail is minimally manicured until you get to the Oak Grove Park portion, where the trail is heavily manicured. Being close to home gives my wife and I the opportunity to ride to the park's picnic pavilion and watch the sunrise most every weekend. Pedestrian traffic is light during the week and moderate on the weekends. Overall, a nice ride for those not wanting to do the MTB trails.

Arbor Hills Trail

Nice park, but...

September, 2019 by rocketsteve1965

With the high volume of pedestrians and dog walkers using the concrete paths, riding a bike at anything over a casual pace will be a rare occasion. Since most of the off-road trails are "pedestrian only", except for the small patch of DORBA trail on the southern border of the park, most of the scenic areas of the park are off limits, unless you are willing to hoof it. That's a shame, because the "pedestrian only" trails are lightly manicured and would make for a great, low-impact ride for those not wanting to ride the rougher DORBA trail.

Again, nice park, but I don't see myself going back for another visit.

Spring Creek Trail (TX)

Beautiful heavily shaded!

September, 2019 by robbin.williams45

It's a beautiful nature walk or bike ride. Paved, bridges, rest areas, location signs and a very unique looking river. You can walk the concrete trail or walk the nature part up in the trees.

Oak Point Park & Nature Preserve Trail

Beautiful Sites!

September, 2019 by buggyreid

Rode this trail the other day on my Townie. The ride was fantastic. Wide sidewalks and beautiful scenery! Lots of trees and the creek plays a huge presence!

Cottonwood Creek Trail (Allen)

Fantastic Cottonwood Creek Trail

September, 2019 by buggyreid

Thoroughly enjoyed this ride today! The historic dam in Allen is along the trail. Really cool to stop and look at. The trail had wide sidewalks. It wove through the trees and in some places you can see houses. It went under Exchange Parkway, Highway 75, and Stacy Road. The trail started in the historic section of Allen and ended at Lake Forrest and Sam Rayburn (hwy 121). Easy and such an enjoyable ride!

Campion Trail

Be prepared for BUGS

August, 2019 by missjai78

Great scenery, Nice wide lanes and Plenty of shade throughout the entire length.

BUT...

I probably ate at least 5 of whatever flies out near that water, A few flew in my eye and then there are all the bugs plastered all over my body stuck to the sweat. And when bugs hit you at 15mph... it hurts!

I say all that to say: BE PREPARED! Wear a mask and eye protection if you're going to be training. If you're out for a casual stroll... I think you'll be just fine.

Lakefront Trail (TX)

Great views

August, 2019 by anj.dockrey

Trail is partially paved, partially dirt but a smooth enough ride. It’s nice and long and makes you feel like you’re out of the city.
