Town Creek Hike and Bike Trail

Very Nice & Clean

August, 2017 by mark140

The Trail is Clean Safe and well lighted. I bike at 5am so the lights are nice. Short flat fully paved trail with bathrooms and benches. Trail great for Families or for beginners. Does anyone know the best route between town creek trail and Lake MineralWells Trail. A connection between both would be nice.

Town Creek Hike and Bike Trail

Nice Trail

June, 2017 by sacoll83

Being new to Weatherford, it was great to find this gem. Very easy trail that is well maintained. Wish it were longer and offered dirt options. Again, a great trail to run.

Lake Mineral Wells State Trailway

April 23, 2017

April, 2017 by jcl744

It was an absolutely beautiful day. Especially with the excitement of being able to explore a new trail. I've been in DFW since 1985 and had no idea this was even here. Plus, to add the "icing" to the "cake", I just bought a new gravel bike. I've been riding it along the Trinity River trail system and while that is fun, it can be dangerous as more people, their strollers, dogs, and Pokemon users (head down and NOT paying attention) are using it.
Enter MWST. This was the most fun I've had in a really long time. Having a nice new ride didn't hurt either. I was treated to 2 snakes, 1 rabbit, a bobcat, 2 farm cats, cattle, horses with people trying to control them, more butterflies than I could count and 2 very eccentric owners of a coffee shop in Mineral Wells. That being said, if you ride the entire 20 miles from Weatherford to MW, you MUST visit the You Maka Me Hot Coffee shop in downtown. It is directly next to the old Baker Hotel. You can sip a much needed coffee and chill out for a bit. This coffee shop is pretty special. They roast their own coffee there and ship it out all over the country. It is truly a small gem in the midst of an otherwise pretty depressing town.
Back to the trail. There is a section from the Vietnam Veterans Memorial into the MW trailhead that uses broken up bricks for the trail. This is a terrible section and is the only part worth avoiding. My butt wishes it had been avoided. I blazed through it and if I hadn't really wanted to visit the coffee shop, I would have turned around. I noticed that certain companies sponsor small sections of the trail. Chicken Express sponsors the section in front of their restaurant. I wondered if Acme Brick sponsored the heavily bricked section. We may never know.
The elevation is mostly flat, but keep in mind if you do the entire 40 miles, you will notice that going back seems to be more climbing. For reference, I started at Weatherford Cartwright park. I was all excited hitting 18-20MPH having a blast, until the return trip. Most avid cyclists won't have an issue. This was the farthest I'd ridden in one day, so it was quite a workout. I will definitely be riding this again. It was not very busy at all. I cannot believe with the gravel grinding crowd out there, that this place wasn't swamped with cyclists.
Thanks again and I hope this helps encourage someone to get out there and RIDE. Enjoy this country while we still can!

Lake Mineral Wells State Trailway

Nice Trail

October, 2016 by rreuscher

Rode the trail this last weekend. Part of the trail from Lake Mineral Wells State Park to Mineral Wells is closed due to flood damage. It's not well marked from the park to Mineral Wells just three orange barrels across part of the trail. No signage saying why the barrels are there. At FM1195 the gate on trail towards the park is closed and locked and it has a sign stating that this section of the trail is closed due to flood damage. Would have been nice if someone from the park when I checked in might mentioned that.

The section from 1195 to Rock Creek mine is very rocky, not the crushed limestone of the rest of the trail, but larger rocks and broken bricks making for a very bumpy ride.

Oak Valley Trail

Run with My Grandson

October, 2016 by whitsonenator

This is a great trail. Ran it today with my grandson as we train for the Dallas Half Marathon. Slight up hill run when you start off of Scott street and a great easy run back. Very nice!

Peaceful Trail

August, 2016 by jenifer1212

We rode about 8 miles of this trail from weatherford and loved it. However be very careful several spots have washed out and trees have fallen on it. I gave it a 3 star mainly for maintenance.

Big Bear Creek Greenbelt

Nice Suburban Ride

July, 2016 by kenisrock

I decided to ride this trail as I have walked my dogs on parts of it numerous times. I went on a week day mid morning. The stretch from Bear Creek Park just east of 377 until almost Keller Smithfield was pretty heavy with Mom's, strollers, and pedestrians. Riding this stretch was tedious with all the human traffic, but scenic. Once I got to Bear Creek Parkway, I was able to ride at a decent pace. There is a bit of hill work between Keller-Smithfield and Davis, but not overly strenuous. If one allows for the slower pace in the shaded, scenic part of the trail and pushes it on the open part, can get an ok workout.

Oak Valley Trail

Nicely Maintained Short Trail

June, 2016 by jody.johnson78

We didn't know this trail existed in our area until I got the TrailLink app. Very well-maintained concrete trail that has parking at both ends. The trail is slightly uphill starting in the Old Town area, so we were glad we went that way since we could coast most of the way back. Fun ride!

Fort Worth Branch (Trinity River Trails)

Trinity Trails poem

March, 2016 by j10ery

Fort Worth Trinity Trails winds along the Trinity River and around the Beautiful Fort Worth skyline downtown, and to exciting places around Cowtown, such as the new Panther Island uptown, and places soon world known like the coming soon Central City Town Lake, and a Magnificent river walk like Downtown San Antone. The trails continue with serenity mostly along the Trinity, and into the heart of Fort Worth also known as Panther City, and into the vicinity of Downtown Fort Worth that was once rated number one by Livability. The Trinity Trails wind around the city, passing nearby, or through so many exciting attractions and things to do, such as 21 Beautiful city parks, Benbrook Lake, Fort Worth Botanic Gardens, The Log Cabin Village, Forest Park Miniature Railroad, and the Fort Worth Zoo. The trails wind to and fro with so many interesting and Fabulous Fort Worth places to go, with special events, shows, artifacts, and things to know, such as The Cultural District with it's many world renown museums, Casa Manana theater, Will Rogers Center & Auditorium, or The Historic district, with the Fort Worth Stockyards, Billy Bobs, and Cowtown Coliseum. The Trinity Trails are the Best trails in Texas, and will some day continue further along the Trinity, and around the Metroplex, from Fort Worth to Dallas. Fort Worth Trinity Trails, walk, ride, or run, its time to hit the trails for fitness, tranquility, or a whole lot Fort Worth fun.

Weatherford to Mineral well's

November, 2015 by stephen533

Took this route mid January found it to be well presented and maintained with very good facilities at the mid way point. Will do this route again in 2016 during the summer. There are lots of parking at both ends of the trail I visited the Vietnam war veterans museum just alongside the trail about 2 miles from Mineral Well's There are a wide selection of motels at either end of the trail with the usual fast food restaurants and pharmacy as well

Fort Worth Branch (Trinity River Trails)

This Trail Has It All

October, 2015 by timothyfish

Anchored in the heart of Fort Worth and extending out along the branches and tributaries of the Trinity River, this trail has a little bit of everything. In places it looks very much like a trail running through a big city, while in others it runs through trees so thick you can't see around the next bend. In places, it is flat, while in others you may find yourself gearing down to go over the hill. And if it still isn't difficult enough, you need not go more than a block from the trail to find some streets with sharp inclines. Take Taylor Street into downtown, or Ranier Ct instead of going through Foster Park. But if you want to be a tourist in Fort Worth, its hard to beat taking off down the Trinity Trail on a bicycle. Most of the things you want to see are within a few blocks of the trail, and some, like the Stockyards, are right on the trail. You don't even have to own a bicycle. Fort Worth has installed bicycle rental kiosks along the trail. Some of the bicycle shops in the area will rent bicycles for longer rides. Even though I live seven miles from the nearest trail entrance, I enjoy riding the trail on those days when my normal route is filled with kids playing in the street.
