Serenity Park Hike and Bike Trail

There is a trail head with a parking lot at the north end. What I like about this trail is that it connects to other trails as you keep going south so if want to stay out longer it's very easy.

Cottonwood Creek Trail (McKinney)

Great skate trail. Would not recommend for beginners. There were a few tricky parts due to standing water, hills, and sharp turns. Would highly recommend for those looking to advance their skills. Will definitely be doing this one again!

Chisholm Trail

Picturesque protected trail - for PLANO ;-)

August, 2021 by lovnander

The older, well maintained neighborhoods of a Plano, such as the ones you’ll pass on this trail are pleasant to look at and relatively safe to ride on. At the southern end of the trail is a felled tree on the west side trail which for most of us, can simply ride around. I downloaded this app so that I would have something different to look at than my immediate neighborhood, and so far it has been beneficial.

Chaparral Rail Trail

Ladonia to Pecan Gap

July, 2021 by boeding7_tl

The surface appears to be in good shape but the overgrowth makes this portion of the trail unusable for hiking, biking and equestrian. Bushes and trees enclose portions of the trail, it is barely passable and where there is grass, it is very tall. By far the worst part are the spiders and spider webs, they are EVERYWHERE. I stopped every quarter mile to wipe them off, they were unavoidable. I exited the trail at CR 3675, three miles into the ride from Ladonia. Had one flat tire from the thick spiked vine that were also ever-present on the trail.

Bluebonnet Trail

Glad for hike and bike trail but not fond of traffic.

July, 2021 by lovnander

Glad for hike and bike trail near my house (no trailering to start) but not fond of the trail paralleling busy roads. I’m in it for the leisure ride, not a road warrior.

Chaparral Rail Trail

Landowner Along Trail.

March, 2021 by kevinkirk51

Since the gates were put in and surface upgraded there has been an increase in bike and hiking traffic. One group consisted of a Veteran and his sons and friends and I was able to provide them water for their canteens. They were going to camp along the trail and I began thinking that I could develop a camping spot next to the trail if there was interest. I am about halfway between Merit and Celeste, Texas. PLEASE PLEASE take your trash and any other you find as that's my biggest complaint. Most people are very considerate and I do appreciate it.

Chaparral Rail Trail

Good mountain bike excursion

February, 2021 by boeding7_tl

Rode mountain bike from Farmersville to Ladonia; thru Celeste was a very good ride, just a few wet spots but trail has been maintained recently, in very good shape. Celeste to Wolfe City, lots of standing water for long stretches (walked most of these), overgrown in places and can be pretty rough riding. The four railroad trestles are not for the faint of heart, some have wide tree branches instead of railroad ties and there are gaps that could swallow a bike if you went sideways, do not ride across these. Several wash-outs in the area. No rain in previous 9 days so water problems will be there until the summer. Had 3 flat tires. Wolfe City to Ladonia has many wet spots and is somewhat overgrown but is almost as nice as the trail from Merit to Celeste. Except for the Celeste to Wolfe City stretch, this would be a five star.

Lakefront Trail (TX)

Good for running

February, 2021 by hy2xpwcwim

Very nice wide trail thats good for taking a nice long run. The dirt is packed but very easy on your joints. There is plenty of space to go around people without having to break your stride.

Chaparral Rail Trail

Very disappointing

December, 2020 by boilers78_tl

Started in Farmersville and did the 2 1/2 miles to the crushed stone to the northeast. Frankly even that 2 1/2 mile was a real problem for us. My wife and I are 65+ with health issues that make riding recumbent trikes necessary.
The first issue is with the bollards that are used at each intersection with the crossing streets and roads. While I understand the need for them, they really should be spaced differently. Put the middle bollard a little to one side. That way, cars and other motorized vehicles are still blocked, but we can still get thru. We had some of these that we had about an inch on either side of our wheels requiring us to virtually stop to get thru. At one road, it was just easier to hit the grass and go around, as I saw several bikers doing.
The other issue is the bridge at about the 2 mile mark. The bridge is significantly above the height of the road. There is no gradual incline to the bridge. It's a very short incline with a very severe bump at the top. We barely cleared our frames getting over it.
Finally, the other issue is just the condition of the trail. The concrete sections are in pretty good shape, the asphalt sections are not. Then there is the issue with all of the horse droppings.
Since there are so few trails for non motorized vehicles in this area, we thought we would try this trail out. Frankly, this is the worst trail we've dealt with so far.

Legacy Trail (TX)

Trail map is wrong

October, 2020 by nigel.walker

This trail now goes from Windhaven/Spring Creek where there is a ton of parking at the Liberty Windhaven Park and goes North for about 3.5 to 4 miles to Buzz Rasor Park in Frisco. Its complete unlike the Trail map. All gaps are finished.

Chaparral Rail Trail

Nicely improved

October, 2020 by drbartbarber

I took a troop on a hike from Farmersville to Celeste on October 3. The section from Farmersville to Merit is, as mentioned in many reviews below, in excellent shape. From Merit to Celeste is vastly improved from work done over the summer of 2020. There are still large rocks in the gravel, and there are still areas that will probably pose a problem after a rain, but the underbrush has been cleared significantly and the road graded. One critique—the brush has been cut back so much that there is far less shade from Merit to Celeste than from Farmersville to Merit.

Cottonwood Creek Trail (Allen)

Allen has great personality

September, 2020 by sadsackiam

A really easy ride through nature, history, and amenities of Allen. Who knew? Allen Heritage Village. Hydrous (wake board training facility). Historic water station, railway, and bridges. Recreational facilities.
