Went with the kids today. They are ages 13, 12 and 10. They had a blast. The majority of the trail also has a forested trail we took instead. That was a lot more fun than staying on the paved trail. As an extra bonus, we doing 2 of the 6 geocaches hidden close by!
I really had high expectations for this trail ... I really did. After looking at the photos posted here, I thought, wow, up my alley! They forgot to post the two huge dumps you pass, the industrial sections. The smell from both dumps .. shaking head here. We chose this because it was a longer trail, just rained and a paved trail would be perfect. However .... right off ... you have to cross multiple major busy intersections, also, quite a smaller intersecting streets where vehicles may come from either a curve or a hill and it's difficult to see them. I almost got hit, within a foot of the car, it really rattled me. There are some nice stretched, you get your momentum going and then ... then you have to cross another busy street. Waiting almost 5 mins at Hwy 121. I wish I would've been able to just ride the entire way without these inconveniences, it was rather annoying ... not to mention a bit more detrimental to your health due to high traffic areas.
The five miles from the Onion shed in Farmersville to around the junction with FM 2194 is wide, well maintained and easy riding for most any bicycle. After that is it gravelly and very overgrown and more suitable for a mountain bike . The route is very scenic and quiet with a lot of butterflies, cardinals and horses visible in the fields but few people or cars at the crossings.
With the high volume of pedestrians and dog walkers using the concrete paths, riding a bike at anything over a casual pace will be a rare occasion. Since most of the off-road trails are "pedestrian only", except for the small patch of DORBA trail on the southern border of the park, most of the scenic areas of the park are off limits, unless you are willing to hoof it. That's a shame, because the "pedestrian only" trails are lightly manicured and would make for a great, low-impact ride for those not wanting to ride the rougher DORBA trail.
Again, nice park, but I don't see myself going back for another visit.
It's a beautiful nature walk or bike ride. Paved, bridges, rest areas, location signs and a very unique looking river. You can walk the concrete trail or walk the nature part up in the trees.
Rode this trail the other day on my Townie. The ride was fantastic. Wide sidewalks and beautiful scenery! Lots of trees and the creek plays a huge presence!
Thoroughly enjoyed this ride today! The historic dam in Allen is along the trail. Really cool to stop and look at. The trail had wide sidewalks. It wove through the trees and in some places you can see houses. It went under Exchange Parkway, Highway 75, and Stacy Road. The trail started in the historic section of Allen and ended at Lake Forrest and Sam Rayburn (hwy 121). Easy and such an enjoyable ride!
Trail is partially paved, partially dirt but a smooth enough ride. It’s nice and long and makes you feel like you’re out of the city.
I rode from DCTA station in DENTON 10.5 miles to just before it starts to cross The lake. I like it except for the cattle guard-style gates and the places where you have to navigate down the street in order to cross at a crosswalk. There are some nice long stretches, too. It’s shady most of the way (early morning). I think the planners did well to take advantage of the commuter train corridor and I applaud their support of cycle commuters.
This is my first time here and it’s the best I’ve found for a scenic long run in my six years in Texas. Very little shade and must bring water. Early morning or evening probably best. This address leads you to an emergency access. Porta potty to the left 1 1/4 from trail head.
This trail is a pretty solid trail, minus the initial mile or so that can become flooded during heavy rains. While I understand the minimal impact approach of the trail, small runoffs could be quite useful in order to maintain the integrity of the concrete. Overall a good trail.
I rode this trail from the Downtown Denton Transit Center all the way across the Lake Lewisville bridge and back.
There's numerous street crossings (some of which are very busy in terms of automobile traffic) where you have to wait for the crossing light, and even then you have to be careful because there's cars turning that will completely not notice you're there and will run you over if you try to cross while the "Walking" sign is green.
It's also not very scenic, you're basically riding past industrial parks, trailer homes, RV parks, and old run-down neighborhoods.
I would not recommend this trail!
