Chaparral Rail Trail

Bland HS to Farmersville

November, 2018 by kimperez

My kids go to Bland. I live 10 minutes from this trail and run it often. It would be perfect if we could resolve 2 issues: Dogs. Lots of them. Every time I go. I’ve been chased multiple times.
From Bland to Farmersville is great, but the “crushed rock” in the opposite direction from the school is not even walkable, much less a running surface. I hope we continue to see improvements to this trail. It’s almost a gem, but could be better.

Caddo Trail

Nice stroll in betwixt greenspace and grand homes

December, 2017 by sjoslin_tl

Easy paved walk with small playground at one end. Filtered light and greenspace amidst tawny homes, and along a stream. A nice escape when short in time.

Watters Branch Trail

East side between McDermott & Bethany now connected!

December, 2017 by ethanja10

I did a test ride last night and can confirm! Awaiting 121 connection with McKinney to continue the north into McKinney. The is an underpass connection on the east side of Exchange (Rowlett Creek Trail) but you'll have to cut across some neighborhoods. I recommend Ridgeview Dr or Comanche Dr.

Taychas Trail

trail is extended

November, 2017 by jonnyquest.king

Trail now runs down independence and behind Preston trail church, and loops back around to the Lawler Park neighborhood

Chisholm Trail

Great relaxing ride!!!

October, 2017 by ahmorningstar

Such a great day!! Laura is so easy going (we literally talked on the phone for almost 2 hours during booking)! Her daughter was our guide and was so fun! Getting to see Texas on horseback like that was amazing! So pretty!! Would definitely recommend!!

Chaparral Rail Trail

Rough terrain-not just “crushed rock”

October, 2017 by dustiejobe

I wanted to write to let you know about my experience this weekend. I selected the October Fest Trail Run Marathon about 5 months ago because it was on a Saturday, it was rated a 1 for “non technical terrain that was fast”, the description on the Ultra Expeditions site stated “crushed rock that was an easy out and back course.” This was going to be my 1st marathon at 46 years young. I was so excited! I booked a great room at a local airb&b site and recruited a friend to come and run the half. Everything was great until about mile 7. What I endured the next 7 miles out and 7 miles back was anything but “fast” and “crushed rock”. I literally had to walk most of the 14 miles. I rolled my ankle 10 times while walking. The path contained golf ball size rocks and had several ruts along the way. I shed a few tears out of frustration along the way. This was not how my dream of completing a marathon was supposed to play out. My back was in agonizing pain throughout. Please change your description and please show accurate pics of the boulders along the trail. If I had known the reality of the course I most certainly would not have signed up for the beating my body took. Thank you for your consideration.

Chisholm Trail

One of the best

October, 2017 by jimpipes

I rode this, today, for the first time. For a city trail, it's very good. I would rank it in the top 5 trails in Dallas County, and I have ridden most of them. It's a nice long trail with few stops because the trail goes under the major streets. All concrete and in good shape. Very scenic because it runs beside a creek. For the majority of the trail, you can ride on both sides of the creek. Water fountains are everywhere. This goes through multiple parks. Good job, Plano!

Bluebonnet Trail

3 stars

September, 2017 by jimpipes

I bicycled the section of the Bluebonnet Trail that's between Preston Rd. and Alma. Rd, today. It's entirely under, not one, but two sets of high-voltage electric lines. It's all concrete (in good shape), and the grass is mowed and maintained. Not very scenic, but if you wish to put in some miles, this would be the trail for you. I noticed only one water fountain that was right off the trail. This trail goes through a few city parks and recreational areas, so there might be water and restrooms there. No traffic lights to wait on, but many busy streets to cross through. Don't try this trail during rush hour. I did it around 1 PM., and I didn't have to wait very long on traffic to get through the many intersections.

The western section of the Bluebonnet Trail is actually a connection trail to 2 other trails, so I don't even know why it's considered part of the Bluebonnet Trail. The southern segment of the Legacy trail dead ends into the Bluebonnet Trail which then connects to the Shady Brook Trail, near Midway Rd. It's all concrete and pretty much is just a wide sidewalk next to Spring Creek Rd. Many stop lights to wait at, and I don't recommend it. The Legacy Trail and Shady Brook Trail are good, though.

Watters Branch Trail

Great Trail

August, 2017 by streak1

I've run this trail since 2003.Builders are required by the City of Allen to complete the portions of trail at builder cost within their house/business office development.The trail now has expanded to about 7 miles.Most is tree shaded to protect you during hot summer weather.It's a great trail for running/walking.Bikers are few on this trail.You'll see birds,coyote,bobcat,and an occasional copperhead on the trail.

Ray Roberts Greenbelt

South half closed, long term

August, 2017 by jimpipes

I rode this trail this past weekend. The section of trail between Hwy. 380 and Hwy. 428 was closed. In fact, after talking to an employee of a local bike shop, it sounds like this half of the trail may be closed, forever. There was much flooding a few years ago, which left feet of mud piled up in areas of the trail. It needs to be re-engineered and the funds aren't there to do it. Don't count on riding this half of the trail in the next several years, at least.

I rode the north half of the trail from Hwy. 428 to Lake Ray Roberts. It's 95% packed gravel and a great trail. Grasshoppers were everywhere - that's the worst I have to say about it. There are 3 buildings along the way which have restrooms and sinks in them. No water fountains but water available from the sinks. I'm pretty sure you are supposed to pay $7 to park in any of these State Park parking lots. It's an honor system where you place money inside an envelope and deposit that envelope inside a box. I didn't know this and didn't have $7 on me. Shameful me. I didn't get a ticket (if they issue tickets) but noticed a Parks and Rec. truck pulling in as I was leaving, around 1 o'clock. So, bring $7 with you to avoid problems.

I recommend this trail, even though it's only about half of what it used to be. I was told the closed half, was the best half. Oh well - Off to the next trail!
