Recent Trail Reviews

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)

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.

Commute on this trail

July, 2019 by oldgeezerjeff

I commute on this trail. It has undergone some recent re-construction...but that is all complete. I start in North Richland Hills on the John Barfield trail and link to the Cotton Belt trail. I have seen many bunnies while riding this trail, as well as coyotes. I ride all the way into Grapevine on the trail and then, from Grapevine, on to Coppell where I work.

A-train Rail Trail

July 2019

July, 2019 by tothedam

I rode from DCTA station in DENTON 10.5 miles to just before it starts to cross The lake. I like it except for the cattle guard-style gates and the places where you have to navigate down the street in order to cross at a crosswalk. There are some nice long stretches, too. It’s shady most of the way (early morning). I think the planners did well to take advantage of the commuter train corridor and I applaud their support of cycle commuters.

Campion Trail

Trail still closed

June, 2019 by meredithw23

The trail is still closed (and partly under water) at Bird’s Fort Trail Park. It’s under maintenance at California Crossing Park. Such a bummer, too, because there aren’t a lot of sidewalks around here!

Cotton Belt Trail

Development and Many Road Crossings

June, 2019 by wilddog2

Just a scant couple years ago this was a much more enjoyable ride. It still suffered from a lot of road crossings that broke it up, but at least most of it was still open and pretty. Sadly, rampant development has caught up with it. I was sad to see what had been pretty groves of live oak, and a very vital marsh were all gone, plowed under for housing. I suspect we won't be riding this one again.

This is my first time here and it’s the best I’ve found for a scenic long run in my six years in Texas. Very little shade and must bring water. Early morning or evening probably best. This address leads you to an emergency access. Porta potty to the left 1 1/4 from trail head.

A-train Rail Trail

Too many street crossings and not very scenic

January, 2019 by thebiggakster

I rode this trail from the Downtown Denton Transit Center all the way across the Lake Lewisville bridge and back.

There's numerous street crossings (some of which are very busy in terms of automobile traffic) where you have to wait for the crossing light, and even then you have to be careful because there's cars turning that will completely not notice you're there and will run you over if you try to cross while the "Walking" sign is green.

It's also not very scenic, you're basically riding past industrial parks, trailer homes, RV parks, and old run-down neighborhoods.

I would not recommend this trail!

Oak Point Park & Nature Preserve Trail

Very nice, wide trails with lots of scenery.

January, 2019 by rwent1_tl

Very well maintained and wide trails that are away from traffic. The Bobcat Run "boardwalk" is especially nice and different. Many unpaved trails fork off from the mail paved trails for the off-roaders. Two ballooners took off from the adjacent Plano Balloon Festival area while I was there. Historical sites in the park, if you know where to look.

City Trail (Highland Village)

This trail is all under the power line right of way so it's very wide and will get you from points A to B, but not in a very entertaining way. There's virtually no shade or features.

The parks and the trails have been closed for some serious maintenance.
