Had a great time on the Trinity River Trail. I road from Benbrook (SW) and was able to connect easily. Only issue I had was that the map shows the trail extending North past 23rd and that does not seem to exist. I spoke with a woman who works as a guard out there and she agreed that there was nothing north of 23rd.
heads up! this trail along the Trinity to Airspace Falls is mostly gravel, so if you're riding a road bike - can be a bit more challenging! The serenity at the Falls made the trip worth it for me! :)
The Trail is Clean Safe and well lighted. I bike at 5am so the lights are nice. Short flat fully paved trail with bathrooms and benches. Trail great for Families or for beginners. Does anyone know the best route between town creek trail and Lake MineralWells Trail. A connection between both would be nice.
Being new to Weatherford, it was great to find this gem. Very easy trail that is well maintained. Wish it were longer and offered dirt options. Again, a great trail to run.
It was an absolutely beautiful day. Especially with the excitement of being able to explore a new trail. I've been in DFW since 1985 and had no idea this was even here. Plus, to add the "icing" to the "cake", I just bought a new gravel bike. I've been riding it along the Trinity River trail system and while that is fun, it can be dangerous as more people, their strollers, dogs, and Pokemon users (head down and NOT paying attention) are using it.
Enter MWST. This was the most fun I've had in a really long time. Having a nice new ride didn't hurt either. I was treated to 2 snakes, 1 rabbit, a bobcat, 2 farm cats, cattle, horses with people trying to control them, more butterflies than I could count and 2 very eccentric owners of a coffee shop in Mineral Wells. That being said, if you ride the entire 20 miles from Weatherford to MW, you MUST visit the You Maka Me Hot Coffee shop in downtown. It is directly next to the old Baker Hotel. You can sip a much needed coffee and chill out for a bit. This coffee shop is pretty special. They roast their own coffee there and ship it out all over the country. It is truly a small gem in the midst of an otherwise pretty depressing town.
Back to the trail. There is a section from the Vietnam Veterans Memorial into the MW trailhead that uses broken up bricks for the trail. This is a terrible section and is the only part worth avoiding. My butt wishes it had been avoided. I blazed through it and if I hadn't really wanted to visit the coffee shop, I would have turned around. I noticed that certain companies sponsor small sections of the trail. Chicken Express sponsors the section in front of their restaurant. I wondered if Acme Brick sponsored the heavily bricked section. We may never know.
The elevation is mostly flat, but keep in mind if you do the entire 40 miles, you will notice that going back seems to be more climbing. For reference, I started at Weatherford Cartwright park. I was all excited hitting 18-20MPH having a blast, until the return trip. Most avid cyclists won't have an issue. This was the farthest I'd ridden in one day, so it was quite a workout. I will definitely be riding this again. It was not very busy at all. I cannot believe with the gravel grinding crowd out there, that this place wasn't swamped with cyclists.
Thanks again and I hope this helps encourage someone to get out there and RIDE. Enjoy this country while we still can!
The city of Fort Worth has done a few million dollars worth of improvements connecting trails and upgrading other's.
Rode the trail this last weekend. Part of the trail from Lake Mineral Wells State Park to Mineral Wells is closed due to flood damage. It's not well marked from the park to Mineral Wells just three orange barrels across part of the trail. No signage saying why the barrels are there. At FM1195 the gate on trail towards the park is closed and locked and it has a sign stating that this section of the trail is closed due to flood damage. Would have been nice if someone from the park when I checked in might mentioned that.
The section from 1195 to Rock Creek mine is very rocky, not the crushed limestone of the rest of the trail, but larger rocks and broken bricks making for a very bumpy ride.
This is a great trail. Ran it today with my grandson as we train for the Dallas Half Marathon. Slight up hill run when you start off of Scott street and a great easy run back. Very nice!
We rode about 8 miles of this trail from weatherford and loved it. However be very careful several spots have washed out and trees have fallen on it. I gave it a 3 star mainly for maintenance.
I decided to ride this trail as I have walked my dogs on parts of it numerous times. I went on a week day mid morning. The stretch from Bear Creek Park just east of 377 until almost Keller Smithfield was pretty heavy with Mom's, strollers, and pedestrians. Riding this stretch was tedious with all the human traffic, but scenic. Once I got to Bear Creek Parkway, I was able to ride at a decent pace. There is a bit of hill work between Keller-Smithfield and Davis, but not overly strenuous. If one allows for the slower pace in the shaded, scenic part of the trail and pushes it on the open part, can get an ok workout.
We didn't know this trail existed in our area until I got the TrailLink app. Very well-maintained concrete trail that has parking at both ends. The trail is slightly uphill starting in the Old Town area, so we were glad we went that way since we could coast most of the way back. Fun ride!
