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.

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.

Bosque River Trail

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.

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.

River Legacy Trail

Great Beginners Trail.

July, 2022 by jhicks85

I took my kids today as their first off road trail. It was a great trail. I would like to know how to add the off road trails to the map with the markers. The sun was setting and we had no idea how far we had left to go.

Campion Trail

would prefer more shaded areas

May, 2022 by juancarlos.anez

Is a good option to ride/run 18 miles straight with no vehicle crossings. But some big portions of the path are uncovered and in summer it must feel unbearable. All of the trail is paved, so heat is strong, be prepared with plenty of fluids.

Lake Mineral Wells State Trailway

Compares to bikepacking Katy Trail in MO

May, 2022 by chuck149

Having just returned from riding the Katy Trail in MO from Clinton to Machens, my buddy (Jim, 67, primarily road cyclist) and I (49, started cycling Fall '21) were still geared up for some bikepacking. Overnight cycle trips of any length without riding highways are difficult to come by in the area. We decided to give this a shot, as we had heard it was a pretty nice trail and we could camp at the state park in Mineral Wells. We are your average, run of the mill riders that aren't in great shape or with super expensive gear. We had no idea how great this would be!

We used the Cartwright trailhead in W'fd, heading West toward Mineral Wells. To say this trail would have been perfect for prepping for the Katy is an understatement. With the exception of a handful of short spots (100 yds or so each), this trail is a fantastic ride. There are some washouts and a few soft gravel/sandy spots that prevent you from riding on mental "auto pilot". Be careful, or you might find yourself spread eagle beneath your rig.

The first four to five miles heading West are very shaded, climbing to the highest point of the ride at 1,263'. After that, it is a lengthy stretch of fast, slight decline riding for what feels like several miles. Just remember what goes downhill must come back uphill :)

12 or so miles in you will pass through Garner. If you need water, soda, beer, or a meal, stop at the Garner Cafe, about 30 yds off the trail. You can't miss it. We ate breakfast here on the return leg, and it was fantastic. And interestingly enough, Garner, Tx is where the domino game of "42" was invented. No joke. So there's a little neat local history of that town...

Four miles west of Garner you will come to the split where you may either continue the mail trail into Mineral Wells or take the state park spur. We initially continued riding the main trail toward the Vietnam Memorial, just beyond the elevated riding bridge over Hwy 80. There are some great view of the Caprock from the riding bridge oddly enough. At any rate, just as we came down the other side of the bridge, we saw the "Bridge Out" sign on the trail. Not being familiar enough to know where the park access road is in relation to the bridge, we opted to bike back over the bridge (ugh) and the to spur (about 1 mile back).

The spur to the state park says "2/3 mile to trail head". This is where it gets good. The majority of that 2/3 mile is a 5% grade up singletrack, switchback with some 6"+ deep washouts and mixture of loose rock, gravel, and sand. We were each carrying about 20# of gear in our pannier/rack. It wasn't hike-a-bike, but it was close. It's a great burn at the end of the ride, and the resulting views from the park are more than worth the work to get there.

You will come out in the amphitheater in the park. When you cycle out of the parking lot, GO LEFT. We added 2 more miles of cycle wandering trying to get out of this back area of the park. Easy riding and we enjoyed it, but the extra ride might not be for everyone after that hill climb :)

Riding through the park you will see the lake, swimming beach, and some great views of town. We camped in the Equestrian part of the park, which ended up being one of the best places we've camped in a long time. Very nice restroom/showers, views, and space. Worth the $14 for sure.

If you are thinking of riding the Katy, this is your training trail. Everything you will experience on the Katy, you will experience here, just for another 240 miles. You could easily ride out and back from Weatherford in a day. Heck, get started by 7am and you could out and back twice with a short break for lunch back in Wfd. That would give you about a 72 mile trip, great prep for Katy.

Enjoy the ride!

Obstacle Course

May, 2022 by skypilot1967_tl

I don’t ride on roads anymore just trails. After reading these reviews that were mostly negative I decided not attempt to even try this trail. Since there are cars and trains involved mixed in with this trail I decided not risk my life.

Campion Trail

Beautifully maintained. Not as crowded as White Rock Lake. Lots of wildlife and several places to pull off and get close to the Trinity River.
