The Lake Mineral Wells State Trailway is a North Texas treasure, connecting the communities of Mineral Wells and Weatherford just west of Fort Worth. Beginning in downtown Mineral Wells, the trail is...

We rode the trail today. Some areas had some birds and squirrels. Nice loop around the lake and got some pictures of the ducks. Nicely paved. We are from northwest Iowa so was nice to ride our bikes in March!
The large volcanic rock needs to be removed and replaced with something more user friendly for riding on horse or bike.
I only walked the portion of the trail that is near the pool and park. I enjoyed hearing the stream running along the trail at that section but wished there was shade!
The surface is great for biking and running, but the trail is far from scenic. There are a few road crossings, all are easy to cross except rufe snow which takes some time. The entire trail is under major power lines, which doesn’t make for a relaxing getaway trail. There’s also many backyards with territorial dogs so this trail isn’t great for the nervous or intimidated dog. The fact that it isn’t the most beautiful does make it less busy and crowded.
Very nice trail for walking
Rode mountain bike from Farmersville to Ladonia; thru Celeste was a very good ride, just a few wet spots but trail has been maintained recently, in very good shape. Celeste to Wolfe City, lots of standing water for long stretches (walked most of these), overgrown in places and can be pretty rough riding. The four railroad trestles are not for the faint of heart, some have wide tree branches instead of railroad ties and there are gaps that could swallow a bike if you went sideways, do not ride across these. Several wash-outs in the area. No rain in previous 9 days so water problems will be there until the summer. Had 3 flat tires. Wolfe City to Ladonia has many wet spots and is somewhat overgrown but is almost as nice as the trail from Merit to Celeste. Except for the Celeste to Wolfe City stretch, this would be a five star.
Reasonably good road bike and mountain bike route connecting excellent trail segments out of Paris and thru Blossom. Asphalt a little worn but has been maintained recently along with some brush clearing. Shady and quiet.
Very nice wide trail thats good for taking a nice long run. The dirt is packed but very easy on your joints. There is plenty of space to go around people without having to break your stride.
Wonderful trail. Please keep in mind this is a shared trail. Pedestrians and cyclists use this and many seem to not notice the other.
Pedestrians walking in groups don't tend to hear a biker announcing. Bikers aren't always loud when announcing because they're out of breath. Wind blowing in your ears and the glare of the sun in your face don't help. The trail is also narrow and can wind, which restricts your viewpoint.
Always look behind you when walking! Stay on the right. If you have to stop of take a call get off of the pathway. It's the courteous thing to do. Most pedestrians are aware, but newcomers are not. Cyclists need to also not take this ride seriously and be mindful that you may need to come to a dead stop when you least expect it. I have been that guy. Still worth the ride but practice safety and courtesy.
Weekends and afternoons can be busy. I suggest going during the week within normal business/school hours for the best experience.
The trail is beautiful and I love walking on it, however there is too much trash by and on the bushes. The maintenance workers cut the trees but leave the trash on the bushes and only contribute to its ugly image. Please try to maintain its beauty by cleaning it up.
The entire trail has been rendered worthless as a meaningful bike trail. Today I was clocked and then stopped by a Constable for exceeding 10mph on my bicycle beside the dam. Just to make it clear, you cant push the pedals and stay below 10mph. If thats the park rule, then fine, just quit calling it a bike trail.
