C. Shane Wilbanks Trail

Nice trail that's close to home...

September, 2019 by rocketsteve1965

The trail is minimally manicured until you get to the Oak Grove Park portion, where the trail is heavily manicured. Being close to home gives my wife and I the opportunity to ride to the park's picnic pavilion and watch the sunrise most every weekend. Pedestrian traffic is light during the week and moderate on the weekends. Overall, a nice ride for those not wanting to do the MTB trails.

Arbor Hills Trail

Nice park, but...

September, 2019 by rocketsteve1965

With the high volume of pedestrians and dog walkers using the concrete paths, riding a bike at anything over a casual pace will be a rare occasion. Since most of the off-road trails are "pedestrian only", except for the small patch of DORBA trail on the southern border of the park, most of the scenic areas of the park are off limits, unless you are willing to hoof it. That's a shame, because the "pedestrian only" trails are lightly manicured and would make for a great, low-impact ride for those not wanting to ride the rougher DORBA trail.

Again, nice park, but I don't see myself going back for another visit.

Spring Creek Trail (TX)

Beautiful heavily shaded!

September, 2019 by robbin.williams45

It's a beautiful nature walk or bike ride. Paved, bridges, rest areas, location signs and a very unique looking river. You can walk the concrete trail or walk the nature part up in the trees.

Oak Point Park & Nature Preserve Trail

Beautiful Sites!

September, 2019 by buggyreid

Rode this trail the other day on my Townie. The ride was fantastic. Wide sidewalks and beautiful scenery! Lots of trees and the creek plays a huge presence!

Cottonwood Creek Trail (Allen)

Fantastic Cottonwood Creek Trail

September, 2019 by buggyreid

Thoroughly enjoyed this ride today! The historic dam in Allen is along the trail. Really cool to stop and look at. The trail had wide sidewalks. It wove through the trees and in some places you can see houses. It went under Exchange Parkway, Highway 75, and Stacy Road. The trail started in the historic section of Allen and ended at Lake Forrest and Sam Rayburn (hwy 121). Easy and such an enjoyable ride!

Campion Trail

Be prepared for BUGS

August, 2019 by missjai78

Great scenery, Nice wide lanes and Plenty of shade throughout the entire length.

BUT...

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.

Lakefront Trail (TX)

Great views

August, 2019 by anj.dockrey

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.

Cotton Belt Trail

Commute on this trail

July, 2019 by oldgeezerjeff

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.

A-train Rail Trail

July 2019

July, 2019 by tothedam

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.

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.
