Bosque River Trail

A hidden country gem!

July, 2020 by tsuviper

A great way to spend the time with the family. There are porta potty’s along the way and it is kept very clean. Highly recommended!

Big Bear Creek Greenbelt

Good trail

July, 2020 by bofingerx99

A pretty trail with lots of trees and shade. Best suited for walking, hiking or jogging, and judging from the traffic when I was there, that is how most people actually use it. From a cycling perspective, it is curvy in a number of places, so it is a slower ride. Come here to walk the dog, push the baby, or take a jog, but on a bike it will be a slower ride, dogging a lot of foot traffic....

Oak Valley Trail

very nice and peaceful

June, 2020 by elisa.mcnally

Love the trail! Has shade and full sun spots. So use your sunscreen and a hat. Slow incline for your first two miles. Walk back is great! Got my 10,000 steps in! Beautiful day! Great people You meet along the way! ¿¿

This is really the only long trail that Burleson has to offer.

Oak Valley Trail

Nice Trail

September, 2019 by metsys

This trail is not too bad. There’s a small parking lot on Oak Valley Park North. There’s a couple small hills that make it easier to ride. The uphill on the way back to the park was a little tough. My 7yr old daughter had to walk it back up.

Fort Worth Branch (Trinity River Trails)

Trinity River Tour

August, 2018 by rtaylorfamily

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.

Rockwood Park Dr trailhead

March, 2018 by nursebahar-67

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! :)

Town Creek Hike and Bike Trail

Very Nice & Clean

August, 2017 by mark140

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.

Town Creek Hike and Bike Trail

Nice Trail

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.

Lake Mineral Wells State Trailway

April 23, 2017

April, 2017 by jcl744

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!
