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

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.

Lake Mineral Wells State Trailway

mineral wells could use some love

October, 2022 by chadley109_tl

Beautiful fall day temps last night in the 40’s high today 86, perfect for a ride from state park campground to the end of the trail, 33 miles total of course some was just riding in the park. The trail down was a hike a bike for over half of the half mile. But not that bad. Rode toward mineral wells crossed the bridge and had to stop at Vietnam memorial, which is very worth seeing. I will park there next time and ride the trail. Trail closed so you can’t go into town. Looks lovely me it’s been closed for awhile. Headed East and almost turned around. So sandy you need wide tires for sure. After about 7 miles things looked up and spots where sandy and loose but not like the first few miles. A good ride if you live near by but not a destination trail.

Oak Point Park & Nature Preserve Trail

Beautiful

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.

White Rock Lake Park Loop Trail

hit and miss

September, 2022 by stewxl

This trail is 50/50 due to the one side where you can come off of the SoPac to Lawther is ok. Dont mind cars as im sure they’re aware of cyclist in the area. But the side of the trail that parallels with buckingham/Garland Rd is the worst as you get people who decide to run on the opposite flow of traffic horrible terrain and always seems to be far too crowded to get a decent ride in

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.

Turtle Creek Trail

Nice parts but overall gross

August, 2022 by turner.dena

There are some nice parts, especially by the Turtle Creek Conservatory Area. But there is a lot of homeless camped under the tunnels which is scary. There is also a ton of trash- we saw a page of a porn magazine and a condom. Ended up just walking on the sidewalk for most of it.

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.

Cottonwood Trail

Dangerous

August, 2022 by agnesmarcellablum

This trail is just an open drug scene. It’s an embarrassment to the city and shamefully neglected. Felt totally unsafe as a solo female cyclist on here.
