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.

Bachman Lake Park Loop Trail

perfect 5k training trail

March, 2021 by 9eebc3btbe

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.

JoAnn Johnson Trail

Powerlines and backyard barkers

February, 2021 by yfdvs9gxy4

The surface is great for biking and running, but the trail is far from scenic. There are a few road crossings, all are easy to cross except rufe snow which takes some time. The entire trail is under major power lines, which doesn’t make for a relaxing getaway trail. There’s also many backyards with territorial dogs so this trail isn’t great for the nervous or intimidated dog. The fact that it isn’t the most beautiful does make it less busy and crowded.

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.

Arbor Hills Trail

pretty park but extremely overcrowded

January, 2021 by screaming_andrea

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.

Trinity Skyline Trail

Open sky

January, 2021 by cobbdvm93

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.

Mills Run Trail

Terrawood Runner

December, 2020 by stephanieled27

I love this trail! The trail itself is 1 mile, but living at the complex’s around Grapevine Mills/The trail, it is a perfect 2.12 mile loop from my front door! Also some of the complex’s have direct access to the trail, so if your looking for a place to live with trails, you found it! The trail is 10 feet wide, paved, winding, and as a female I feel safe running this trail as Apt complex is on one side and the golf course/creek is on the other.

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.

Duck Creek Trail (TX)

Quiet and Serene and peaceful. however for biking very hilly. Maybe not so much for casual older Riders

White Rock Creek Trail (North)

Good Trail - needs an upgrade

November, 2020 by stewxl

Great trail to connect to White Rock Lake. Wish they would have made a connection to SoPAc without having to go down to Flag Pole. The City should have someone come thru from time to time to clear out the debris from trees and mud and check for the cracks and uneven pavement especially now that they are connecting the Lake highland trail at the skillman end. Still its a nice trail with a those exceptions
