Randy Morrow Trail

Randy Morrow - Biking

June, 2018 by asphaltman1992

I will first say this: If you are a beginner, this trail is not for you! (at-least the full length isn't) -- I consider myself an avid rider, and I must admit, this trail was a tough one!

There is many steep levels, both asphalt, and crushed granite. You have to be prepared to go uphills, and often!

The views are what made it though! You start off at a park scene, and end up at the beautiful Lake Georgetown. (depending on where you start).

This trail is a must ride for avid trail riders.

White Rock Lake Park Loop Trail

One of Best Trails in Dallas

June, 2018 by rcorson

I have been riding this trail for the past 4 years and always love this trail. It has a great deal of variety and is very scenic. You can ride around the lake or head downtown! Gets a little busy during the summer on the weekend mornings, but never too bad.

Arbor Hills Trail

Great views, mixed use park. Favorite park thus far for concrete. decent MTB

Cargill Long Park Trail

lame

April, 2018 by richink6

The trail is not well kept. I brought my street bike only to dodge holes in the asphalt and then 1 mile in have to turn around because of the gravel that is on the rest of the trail

Cottonwood Trail

Too risky

April, 2018 by mb404

I wish I had found the reviews here before deciding to ride my bike on the Cottonwood Trail two days ago, because it was a bizarre experience. I got on the path from the White Rock Creek Trail and it started out fine, but not for long. I found myself riding past sketchy characters and some homeless men right off to the side of the path. I did not see another person walking nor biking the entire time and once the path led to the freeway where it takes a sharp right, it continued to look worse...no one else around, trash, and graffiti everywhere. It didn't feel right to me, so I decided to turn around and head back. Then it became really bizarre. I was pedalling quite fast because I wanted to quickly get beyond the rough area that the path runs through and as I approached riding under an overpass I came upon two police officers with their guns drawn. I slowed down and looked around and saw that there were several officers all around with guns drawn or ready, including the overpass. One of the them yelled down to me to get out of there quickly. So, I ended up on my bike in a rough part of town with no way to get home. I was lost and thankfully had my phone on me and was able to reach someone to come pick me up. (I later found the sad reason for all those police officers being on/around the path.) Needless to say, I will NEVER ride that path again because it is too risky.

Brushy Creek Regional Trail

Brushy Creek - Biking

April, 2018 by asphaltman1992

I absolutely love this trail! I used to live directly on the trail-path, and I would ride my bike on the trail daily. I recently moved, so I cant ride it as often as I used to, but let me tell you, I do every chance I get!

The main trail has many trail paths (off the main path) that allow you to enjoy a rugged (mountain bike experience), but it also features a great concrete (Main Trail), with some areas being crushed stone; which allow you to speed ride comfortable.

The scenery is what originally got me! Some areas are wooded, with a creek running beside you, and some areas have a lake, parks, bridges; its quite the outdoor experience.

This trail is a must ride, if you haven't already!

Salado Creek Greenway

It was great ride to do from ljb spot. I went left for about 5 miles and then back past along the boardwalk for another 7 miles. It was awesome workout.

Buffalo Bayou Trail

love it

April, 2018 by timstump7

It’s a great challenge for me when I feel like rollerblading over biking. Yes. I’m one of those crazies that enjoy both modes of recreational mobility. My only complaint would be it gets crowded, so you’re bound to run into either those biking snobs or those rollerblading snobs. Idk why either camp thinks they look cool. We look like idiots lol let’s just get along! Trail was a blast though. And this app makes it a lot easier to know how to get back to your car.

Mesquite Heritage Trail

We had a great time.

April, 2018 by reginayoderbiz

The path is smooth with great gentle inclines/descents. Beautiful scenery along the way even though it’s in town. There’s a couple of busy crossings, but it’s doable.

Glendale Park Loop Trail

Glendale Park Trail

April, 2018 by toushrn

I love this trail! Its just the right length for me and I can see from one side to the other. The people I meet are friendly. Many have been walking this trail for years, I always feel safe on this trail.

Cottonwood Trail

didn’t feel safe

April, 2018 by hawkes_jamie

Used to riding the White Rock Creek Trail and wanted to try this trail. Unfortunately didn’t feel safe for a woman riding alone. Disappointing.

Fort Worth Branch (Trinity River Trails)

Rockwood Park Dr trailhead

March, 2018 by nursebahar-67

heads up! this trail along the Trinity to Airspace Falls is mostly gravel, so if you're riding a road bike - can be a bit more challenging! The serenity at the Falls made the trip worth it for me! :)
