Campion Trail

Trail still closed

June, 2019 by meredithw23

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!

Cotton Belt Trail

Development and Many Road Crossings

June, 2019 by wilddog2

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.

The Colony Shoreline Trail

Water, Wildflowers & Wildlife¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿

May, 2019 by colleen.mary.ryan

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.

A-train Rail Trail

Too many street crossings and not very scenic

January, 2019 by thebiggakster

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!

Oak Point Park & Nature Preserve Trail

Very nice, wide trails with lots of scenery.

January, 2019 by rwent1_tl

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.

City Trail (Highland Village)

This trail is all under the power line right of way so it's very wide and will get you from points A to B, but not in a very entertaining way. There's virtually no shade or features.

Campion Trail

Entire trail closed for maintenance

December, 2018 by rwent1_tl

The parks and the trails have been closed for some serious maintenance.

A-train Rail Trail

Google Calls This Route “Denton Katy Trail”

October, 2018 by dnewgard

Addtl from previous review. Tip: park at the Medpark DCTA station which is mid-trail. The ride North or South.

A-train Rail Trail

Just OK

October, 2018 by dnewgard

All paved which is nice. It’s a city trail along train tracks so anywhere a train crosses a road, you get to play with pedestrian ‘walk/don’t walk’ signals. I hit about 5-8 on the northern half of this trail.

If any city trail maintenance people read this; This trail would get 5 stars from me if you erected small trail map podiums ever 1.5 miles with You Are Here markings. Or just put a nice stake in the ground with mile markers like Little Elm does on their trails.

Trail STILL closed!

October, 2018 by dnewgard

Trail STILL closed. Lower half is under water at 380 trail head (you can’t even enter the trail head area).

Cotton Belt Trail

Very Urban Feeling

September, 2018 by forthetollferry

It's good to have a trail, but couldn't it have been set amongst a few more trees or further from the road? I suppose not with the way the area is developed. One other thing, it doesn't seem to have very distinct access points with designated parking.
