A-train Rail Trail

Convenient access

March, 2023 by vc2019

We rode from Denton to Corinth round trip. Loved how easy it is to access the trail, parking close to the police station hoping on to the trail and when done, Denton has lots of good options for lunch. The only down side was the zig zag gates at some of the road crossings.

Chaparral Rail Trail

nice trail

March, 2023 by tqynxtfhz5

Biked about 11 miles, starting in Farmersville. Other than a few muddy spots, it’s a good ride. Progresses from asphalt, to different types of gravel to trail. Spring seems like the perfect time to go. I would not recommend this trail during the summer, or on any other type of bike, other than a mountain or hybrid. The park in Farmersville desperately needs a restroom.

College Parkway Hike and Bike Trail

nice neighborhood trail

March, 2023 by jennifizz

Nice length and sidewalk. Wish Frisco would beautify it. Needs more shade, trees and benches and maybe arbors. Then it would be perfect.

Bedford Trails

short and easy

March, 2023 by nicholas_wolff

As a beginner road biker, it’s good for slow speed, gentle slopes and curves and practicing the basics. Also recommended for jogging and walking the dog

Bedford Trails

Short, easy trail

March, 2023 by nicholas_wolff

I rode my road bike here this afternoon, I definitely recommend it if you’re looking for something short and low intensity. There are gentle slopes and curves and several road crossings (most of them residential roads) that make for good practice clipping in and out of pedals for beginners like me. I hardly ever went past 15mph so it’s good for practicing the basics such as maneuvering and shifting into different gear combination. Recommended for jogging or walking dogs as well.

Cotton Belt Trail

A great ride.

March, 2023 by durrick

We just rode this trail today. The description says it ends at the Highway, but Grapevine has completed the trail all the way to Main Street. We rode up, had a glass of wine and rode back. Be careful of some tricky intersections.

Cotton Belt Trail

Not Great for Inline Skating

February, 2023 by ray.hutchins

This path is not the greatest for inline skating but is suitable for cycling. There are many intersections with multi-lane streets, many of which do not have protected crosswalks. The intersections also have tactile paving, which makes it very difficult for inline skates, especially if you do not have protection when crossing. There are also wooden plank bridges that are very rough and bumpy which is very hard to maneuver on inline skates.

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.

SoPac Trail

Great trail

November, 2022 by stewxl

One of the better mostly flat trail that cuts thru the middle of north dallas and connects to Flag Pole, Ridgewood, White Rock and Sante Fe Trails. Usually see patrol riding and walking around. Could use a cleaning at times due to debris from the trees mud etc. also wish walkers/joggers would stop hogging the trail and stay to the right so cyclists could have room to pass as well as inconsiderate dog owners with their dogs on long leashes realize its a mixed use trail and to stop letting their dogs crap on the trail and not cleanup afterwards.

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
