Campion Trail

Great Trail

January, 2023 by xv57y49pbr

It is seldom crowded. Lots of scenery and views of the Trinity river.

Mills Run Trail

Hidden gem

January, 2023 by dwineman63114

This trail has slight incline but great paved path and railing. Country view in a city setting. Definitely worth it for a small walk.

Campion Trail

Not worth it as long as it smells like sewage

November, 2022 by lovnander

Compared to one of the White Rock trails I normally take, it’s no nicer. Why I really rated this trail so low was the gawd-awful sewage smell coming from the West Fork Trinity River, especially as you approach the Cricket field. Looked at the map and discovered a water treatment plant nearby that spills into the river. Last quarter of the trail was a pseudo hike & bike trail along a busy road. I turned around and decided I’d had enough. Old Iron Bridge a marker was interesting, though.


Watters Branch Trail

nice could use a clean up

October, 2022 by stewxl

Nice peaceful winding trail thru the neighborhoods. Parts have been over taken by mud and debris as to be expected so would be nice if at times the city could clear out those issues to avoid those who bike from having a possible flat or damage. As well as disrespectful dog owners who dont clean up after their pets that relieve themselves on the trail instead of the grass. Other than that really enjoyed the trail and its connectivity to other trails in the area

Chisholm Trail

Great Trail To Trick Your Family Into Going Further

October, 2022 by sdavis29

This is a great trail that I used to run every day starting at the library going down to the senior center at 15th and back. Now I am riding a bike and dragging my family out and there are enough options to keep them distracted to keep going further and the days I go alone there are a lot of connecting trails along with riding on the sidewalk for a bit in between that it is awesome and can make new routes whenever.

A-train Rail Trail

Great Trail for North TX

October, 2022 by bwgak5kk7u

I love this trail and use it a lot for solo rides. It’s a nice round trip ride from Lewisville to Denton. Yes you do have to cross some roads but I use it like interval training. I go hard in between crossing and take the time waiting on cars to catch my breath. Most people are pretty polite and let you cross once they notice you. It’s also great because of built in rest stops. It’s a QT right on the trail halfway. So if you want you can stop coming and going. I love the A Train trail. It’s a Great Trail for North TX.

Oak Point Park & Nature Preserve Trail


September, 2022 by 9pqcbhc5rk

This trail is great for biking or Rollerskating. It is so smooth and many beautiful view including the lake view. This trail has many different paths that you can take which is awesome.

A-train Rail Trail

Completed it Up to Denton Station

September, 2022 by vhbb7hv2b5

With some of the previous posts the signage south of the lake can be a bit lacking. It is fairly easy to decide based on the trail compared to the the normal sidewalks.

The dodging of vehicles and trains weren't that bad it is definitely safer than riding on the side of the roadway.

Windhaven Park Trail

Good but basic

August, 2022 by mirandamisha

Good concrete trail to do with littles and take a break at the park, but layout of trail is a little confusing and doesn’t seem to connect.

Celebration Pass Hike and Bike Trail

Great Trail

June, 2022 by cvystpq92n

This is a beautiful hike and bike trail, mostly shaded by mature trees. There’s lots of nature to enjoy along the way. The path is very wide, easy for bikes to pass. And it’s a comfortable 3 mile walk round trip. We will be back many times!

Tried riding this trail today but the entrance at 380 was closed. Disappointed.
