Great for biking or walking. Crosses a few major roads but does so at red lights.
This trail now goes from Windhaven/Spring Creek where there is a ton of parking at the Liberty Windhaven Park and goes North for about 3.5 to 4 miles to Buzz Rasor Park in Frisco. Its complete unlike the Trail map. All gaps are finished.
I took a troop on a hike from Farmersville to Celeste on October 3. The section from Farmersville to Merit is, as mentioned in many reviews below, in excellent shape. From Merit to Celeste is vastly improved from work done over the summer of 2020. There are still large rocks in the gravel, and there are still areas that will probably pose a problem after a rain, but the underbrush has been cleared significantly and the road graded. One critique—the brush has been cut back so much that there is far less shade from Merit to Celeste than from Farmersville to Merit.
A really easy ride through nature, history, and amenities of Allen. Who knew? Allen Heritage Village. Hydrous (wake board training facility). Historic water station, railway, and bridges. Recreational facilities.
Might open again as they cleared a log dam. The trail was slightly flooded but passable after a fair amount of early sept rain. The parking lot area might be damaged.
What a nice trail! Wide enough for bikes & walking/running. The little foot paths to the limestone quarry & stream are great! It’s a short walk but looks promising that it is continuing up by the SRT!
I ride this path a lot because it is in my neighborhood. Going south, the trail actually goes under Mckinney Ranch and continues all the way to Collin Mckinney Pkwy where it dead ends at the creek/dead end bridge. I like the scenery, creek, ponds and multiple tunnels you travel through.
Wasn’t impressed. Poorly marked at the beginning portion of the trail and through the golf course area. It appears the narrow paths through the golf course are the old golf cart paths and most are in badly need of repair and should be widen or upgraded completely. Trail connected to McKinney's Craig Ranch, but didn't go much more than a mile north of 121. So close to Frisco and Plano, I would have thought there would be better signage and connecting trails, disappointing.
Have not hiked in years. Great for a start. Loved it. Lots of open trail and even some shade. get here early if it is summer-- or you cook. apply sunscreen-- a must. Bathrooms shown are NOT available-- they have a pin code. plan ahead.
I have ridden this trail when in the area for several years now. Covered all of the trail that is now complete. It's a rather flat trail not in any wooded areas to speak of. The only part of the trail where a cyclist can gather some speed is where it crosses Lake Lewisville. That's about a mile and a half run but right alongside I-35. Actually the trail took over some of the shoulder of the Stemmons Freeway. The southern part as divided by the lake is difficult to navigate until you learn where the trail leads. There are busy intersections especially around Hwy 121 and the baseball fields south of there. For the northern part there a a lot of rail track crossings and depot passage including gates at one depot. At certain times pedestrians who are accessing the transit may interfere with safe passage while cycling through the depot areas. There are several switchback gates along the full length where I have to unclip and tip toe my bike through. With other areas along the route it is best to leave the trail and ride in the street as the trail is too narrow and has sharp turns. A plus for the ride is on the south side of the lake. A short side street ride on Oakridge Blvd. will take you right down to Lakeside Park for a 4 mile or so loop. Also a short ride from the trail at the Highland Village Station up to Tower Bay Park joins a nice loop around Copperas Point. Other than those two points this trail is pretty average as far as trails go.
Great improvement from Merrit. Very clean and well maintained. Very nice shade.
Nice wide trail, not too crowded and a good mixture of hills and flat. You can make it as long or short as you want.
