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!
Very well maintained and wide trails that are away from traffic. The Bobcat Run "boardwalk" is especially nice and different. Many unpaved trails fork off from the mail paved trails for the off-roaders. Two ballooners took off from the adjacent Plano Balloon Festival area while I was there. Historical sites in the park, if you know where to look.
When WRC floods, most of the northern trail is submerged at least 5-10 feet, leaving a LOT of flood debris and trash in the trees and bushes and a lot of dirt on the trails when the flood waters finally recede. The good thing about this trail is that it rarely parallels a street and there are very few street crossings so it's a pretty uninterrupted ride.
This trail is all under the power line right of way so it's very wide and will get you from points A to B, but not in a very entertaining way. There's virtually no shade or features.
The parks and the trails have been closed for some serious maintenance.
My kids go to Bland. I live 10 minutes from this trail and run it often. It would be perfect if we could resolve 2 issues: Dogs. Lots of them. Every time I go. I’ve been chased multiple times.
From Bland to Farmersville is great, but the “crushed rock” in the opposite direction from the school is not even walkable, much less a running surface. I hope we continue to see improvements to this trail. It’s almost a gem, but could be better.
This is a great trail that goes from Mockingbird dart station in the west to connect to the SoPac trail further east. There’s a road to cross near the start(Worcola St) but then exclusively bike/walk/run ducking under Greenville Ave then bridges crossing Skillman St and Abrams Rd until beyond Ridgewood Park where it crosses Fisher Rd before heading down a ramp to join the SoPac trail. Easy cycling with a lot less users than the ever popular Katy trail. The day I did it coming back between Skillman and Greenville Ave saw a coyote near the dart line.
I only cycled the section of this trail from the SoPac trail to White Rock Creek trail system. This is a functional part of the trail that runs in an easterly direction along the northern part of the E Northwest Hway. There are some roads that cross the trail as you approach White Rock Dart station. You cycle on the footpath past the dart station across the lights at W Lawther drive and then you can have miles of park like cycling at your disposal - north is the White Rock Creek trail or you cycle around White Rock Lake. White Rock
Addtl from previous review. Tip: park at the Medpark DCTA station which is mid-trail. The ride North or South.
All paved which is nice. It’s a city trail along train tracks so anywhere a train crosses a road, you get to play with pedestrian ‘walk/don’t walk’ signals. I hit about 5-8 on the northern half of this trail.
If any city trail maintenance people read this; This trail would get 5 stars from me if you erected small trail map podiums ever 1.5 miles with You Are Here markings. Or just put a nice stake in the ground with mile markers like Little Elm does on their trails.
Trail STILL closed. Lower half is under water at 380 trail head (you can’t even enter the trail head area).
This is a trail that currently connects the Ridgewood trail( located to the south west) to the Flag Pole Hill trail( located to the north east). This section of the SoPac trail is concrete paved and is as straight as an arrow. It is well shaded with trees on either side. It continues onwards north but I turned off it at State route 12/E Northwest Hway to join the Flag Pole Hill trail. Where the Ridgewood trail currently joins onto the SoPac trail there is an unpaved section that heads south under the Dart line - this will be paved eventually to continue South to White Rock lake. Will be great to see it completed.
