This trail is beautiful!
More like a side walk on one side of the park, then small regular side walk.
Beautiful trails in the midst of plant and animal life.
This is a paved trail that is typically 2 lanes wide, narrowing to a single lane on bridges. As others have noted it can be noisy due to proximity to Love Field airport. My primary negative is that about half the trail runs adjacent to streets, which means inhaling the exhaust from the passing cars. How bad a problem this is will vary by the amount of traffic at any given time.Here on traillink.com the trail is described as 3.5 miles in length while at alltrails.com it is described as 3 miles (= 5k). I don't know who is closer to accurate. This trail has benches for resting along the route, and playgrounds for children.
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.
Parking along Shoreline is best if you are coming by to do a single 5k loop. The parking lot is usually crowded and has kids parties with music. There is a great hill around back so its not just a flat surface. Perfect loop trail to trail on.
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.
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.
Took me 20 minutes to just exit the parking lot since there was no parking and an incredible mass of people not even bothering to wear masks. Big waste of time and gas money bothering to go up there and not have access.
Mix of paved and gravel trails available. There is trash around, but take time to see the beauty. Parts seem like open prairie. When you get west of Sylvan, it becomes quiet and you can hear hawks. Watch for ducks, herons, and cranes. Btw, there are feral hogs early dawn and late Eve. You can find their tracks. Great place to hike with no cars.
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.
Quiet and Serene and peaceful. however for biking very hilly. Maybe not so much for casual older Riders
