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.
The trail is still closed (and partly under water) at Bird’s Fort Trail Park. It’s under maintenance at California Crossing Park. Such a bummer, too, because there aren’t a lot of sidewalks around here!
Just a scant couple years ago this was a much more enjoyable ride. It still suffered from a lot of road crossings that broke it up, but at least most of it was still open and pretty. Sadly, rampant development has caught up with it. I was sad to see what had been pretty groves of live oak, and a very vital marsh were all gone, plowed under for housing. I suspect we won't be riding this one again.
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!
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.
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.
This only way this trail is 4.8 miles is if you measure it as a round trip and do a full loop around each park on either end. It also has a lot of unfilled expansion cracks and long slatted bridges. Not good if you are skating or roller blading. Other than that is is nice.
It's good to have a trail, but couldn't it have been set amongst a few more trees or further from the road? I suppose not with the way the area is developed. One other thing, it doesn't seem to have very distinct access points with designated parking.
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.
My husband and I love this trail, today I had a scare while walking the trail. We came face to face with 3 lynx or maybe Bobcats. Very amazing sight to see but we where startled. They climbed up the tree and we could hear them fighting. Just be aware at all times and enjoy the beauty of this trail.
