Campion Trail

Be prepared for BUGS

August, 2019 by missjai78

Great scenery, Nice wide lanes and Plenty of shade throughout the entire length.

BUT...

I probably ate at least 5 of whatever flies out near that water, A few flew in my eye and then there are all the bugs plastered all over my body stuck to the sweat. And when bugs hit you at 15mph... it hurts!

I say all that to say: BE PREPARED! Wear a mask and eye protection if you're going to be training. If you're out for a casual stroll... I think you'll be just fine.

Cotton Belt Trail

Commute on this trail

July, 2019 by oldgeezerjeff

I commute on this trail. It has undergone some recent re-construction...but that is all complete. I start in North Richland Hills on the John Barfield trail and link to the Cotton Belt trail. I have seen many bunnies while riding this trail, as well as coyotes. I ride all the way into Grapevine on the trail and then, from Grapevine, on to Coppell where I work.

A-train Rail Trail

July 2019

July, 2019 by tothedam

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.

Campion Trail

Trail still closed

June, 2019 by meredithw23

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!

Cotton Belt Trail

Development and Many Road Crossings

June, 2019 by wilddog2

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.

A-train Rail Trail

Too many street crossings and not very scenic

January, 2019 by thebiggakster

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!

City Trail (Highland Village)

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.

Campion Trail

Entire trail closed for maintenance

December, 2018 by rwent1_tl

The parks and the trails have been closed for some serious maintenance.

A-train Rail Trail

Google Calls This Route “Denton Katy Trail”

October, 2018 by dnewgard

Addtl from previous review. Tip: park at the Medpark DCTA station which is mid-trail. The ride North or South.

A-train Rail Trail

Just OK

October, 2018 by dnewgard

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.

Good Link Trail

Not 4.8 miles

October, 2018 by fisher_john_b

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.

Cotton Belt Trail

Very Urban Feeling

September, 2018 by forthetollferry

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.
