My husband and I love this trail, today I had a scare while walking the trail. We came face to face with 3 lynx or maybe Bobcats. Very amazing sight to see but we where startled. They climbed up the tree and we could hear them fighting. Just be aware at all times and enjoy the beauty of this trail.
I heard about this trail and went to ride this week. Very nice trail, the designers added unique features to personalize the trail with tree trunk carvings, very nice landscapes, pretty cool bridges, fences were nice, and just a great experience. Trail markers and maps are very helpful. Kudos to the city of Irving for the investment and maintenance, we will return regularly.
Was glad to find this trail relatively close to home. Fairly well maintained and a nice ride with two exceptions: 1. Far too many intersections with pretty heavy automobile traffic. Too many drivers has very little regard for bikers and you have to be extremely careful crossing. 2. In the Lake Dallas area for some reason they have placed giant barricades over 3/4 of the bike paths at each intersection with the road. These are very close to the road, requiring even more caution and manipulating to not only avoid traffic, but navigate around to continue on the trail. I even scraped my leg on one barricade while trying to get by it.
6/23/18- Headed toward NRH, the trail was shutdown at mile 9 for construction. Nicely kept, clean trails. Moderate incline from grapevine to NRH, but mostly flat terrain. We enjoyed the ride despite killer winds there and back.
Great views, mixed use park. Favorite park thus far for concrete. decent MTB
Having moved to North Dallas from South Dallas, I have been hard pressed to find some nice trails. This trail does not disappoint. There are frequent crossings that can be tricky. What is nice is that there are areas one can veer off for more challenging biking up hills. There are beautiful neighborhoods throughout. I will look forward to taking this trail again.
4 stars because at times the trail feels a little unsafe and remote from a female perspective.
I only ran a brief 1.5 miles on this Trail from the Ball Street (northern) end point, but I did want to mention that there is a relatively new (2-3 year old) sidewalk from up Route 26 going past Gaylord Resort, Great Wolf Lodge and the Embassy Suite/Bass Pro that makes this trail very accessible and great for a long run or ride from any of those properties. The sidewalk is very wide and goes along 114 into downtown Grapevine (Main Street is very cool), and then along Ira E Wood Ave along a commercial strip and then transitions into the Cotton Belt trail.
At the Ball Street entrance there are several businesses where you can probably park and access the trail with little difficulty (chiropractor office, etc).
I didn't have a chance to go too far on the actual Cotton Belt so I can't vouch for the scenery. I stopped when I was about to run under an interstate.
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.
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.
Trail now runs down independence and behind Preston trail church, and loops back around to the Lawler Park neighborhood
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!!
