Great scenery, Nice wide lanes and Plenty of shade throughout the entire length.
I probably ate at least 5 of whatever flies out near that water, A few flew in my eye and then there are all the bugs plastered all over my body stuck to the sweat. And when bugs hit you at 15mph... it hurts!
I say all that to say: BE PREPARED! Wear a mask and eye protection if you're going to be training. If you're out for a casual stroll... I think you'll be just fine.
Trail is partially paved, partially dirt but a smooth enough ride. It’s nice and long and makes you feel like you’re out of the city.
I commute on this trail. It has undergone some recent re-construction...but that is all complete. I start in North Richland Hills on the John Barfield trail and link to the Cotton Belt trail. I have seen many bunnies while riding this trail, as well as coyotes. I ride all the way into Grapevine on the trail and then, from Grapevine, on to Coppell where I work.
I rode from DCTA station in DENTON 10.5 miles to just before it starts to cross The lake. I like it except for the cattle guard-style gates and the places where you have to navigate down the street in order to cross at a crosswalk. There are some nice long stretches, too. It’s shady most of the way (early morning). I think the planners did well to take advantage of the commuter train corridor and I applaud their support of cycle commuters.
Literally that is what Northhaven Trail is. There are no trees, no plant life, just mowed grass. I can't believe the city took so much time on this. We live a few blocks away and won't be going back. Would much rather walk around the neighborhood.
The trail is still closed (and partly under water) at Bird’s Fort Trail Park. It’s under maintenance at California Crossing Park. Such a bummer, too, because there aren’t a lot of sidewalks around here!
Just a scant couple years ago this was a much more enjoyable ride. It still suffered from a lot of road crossings that broke it up, but at least most of it was still open and pretty. Sadly, rampant development has caught up with it. I was sad to see what had been pretty groves of live oak, and a very vital marsh were all gone, plowed under for housing. I suspect we won't be riding this one again.
This is my first time here and it’s the best I’ve found for a scenic long run in my six years in Texas. Very little shade and must bring water. Early morning or evening probably best. This address leads you to an emergency access. Porta potty to the left 1 1/4 from trail head.
This trail is a pretty solid trail, minus the initial mile or so that can become flooded during heavy rains. While I understand the minimal impact approach of the trail, small runoffs could be quite useful in order to maintain the integrity of the concrete. Overall a good trail.
I rode this trail from the Downtown Denton Transit Center all the way across the Lake Lewisville bridge and back.
There's numerous street crossings (some of which are very busy in terms of automobile traffic) where you have to wait for the crossing light, and even then you have to be careful because there's cars turning that will completely not notice you're there and will run you over if you try to cross while the "Walking" sign is green.
It's also not very scenic, you're basically riding past industrial parks, trailer homes, RV parks, and old run-down neighborhoods.
I would not recommend this trail!
Very well maintained and wide trails that are away from traffic. The Bobcat Run "boardwalk" is especially nice and different. Many unpaved trails fork off from the mail paved trails for the off-roaders. Two ballooners took off from the adjacent Plano Balloon Festival area while I was there. Historical sites in the park, if you know where to look.
When WRC floods, most of the northern trail is submerged at least 5-10 feet, leaving a LOT of flood debris and trash in the trees and bushes and a lot of dirt on the trails when the flood waters finally recede. The good thing about this trail is that it rarely parallels a street and there are very few street crossings so it's a pretty uninterrupted ride.
