Duck Creek Trail (TX)

Quiet and Serene and peaceful. however for biking very hilly. Maybe not so much for casual older Riders

White Rock Creek Trail (North)

Good Trail - needs an upgrade

November, 2020 by stewxl

Great trail to connect to White Rock Lake. Wish they would have made a connection to SoPAc without having to go down to Flag Pole. The City should have someone come thru from time to time to clear out the debris from trees and mud and check for the cracks and uneven pavement especially now that they are connecting the Lake highland trail at the skillman end. Still its a nice trail with a those exceptions

West White Oak Bayou Trail

No Connector at Stude Park

November, 2020 by mbrand_tl

There was no connector at the Studemont/Stude Park location coming from Buffalo Bayou Greenway Trail downtown. I was disappointed as I had ome from Spring TX to make a 17 mile ride. I had planned on beginning my ride on the Buffalo Bayou Trail and move to the White Oaks Bayou route. Also at Stude Park there was a split with one of the paths appearing to continue on the long route but it was a hard dead end at the bottom of a hill. Otherwise the trail from Stude Park into downtown was a very pleasant experience. That path is in good condition but can become crowded with pedestrians at times

183A Shared Use Path

Great resource for safe riding, tho not very scenic

November, 2020 by blair151

This path is a great way to safely do 7 miles, either on its own or tacked on to the beautiful Brushy Creek Trail. This 183A path is in excellent shape, with a very wide concrete surface. It does require crossing the very busy Whitestone Boulevard in Cedar Park, as well as a few other less busy roads, all of which have crosswalks with signals. The majority of the time, you're paralleling the noisy turnpike, but it's far enough removed at most points that I can tune out the traffic. The path is nicely landscaped, but overall isn't very scenic -- it's still just a big sidewalk going along between the turnpike and business or residential areas, with very few adjacent trees. There are a couple nice long wood bridges that improve the vibe.

I like taking a detour from the path in Cedar Park just after crossing Whitestone, to enjoy a winding path around a couple of nice urban lakes, leading to the fun Cedar Park Sculpture Garden. Then I cut up Discovery Boulevard and go behind the HEB Center -- this route is much quieter and allows me to bypass the front of the big "Parke" shopping center along 183A, with its many busy entrances that seem a bit unsafe for a cyclist zipping by on the sidewalk.

I'll usually start towards the East end of the Brushy Creek trail (sometimes starting in Bridgewater Park), and enjoy that wonderfully scenic trail up to the turnpike, then hop on the 183A path for 7 more miles. (Or vice versa, depending on the wind direction.) Overall, I really like the 183A path and recommend it for a nice, safe ride of 7 miles or so.

Furneaux Creek Blue Trail

Thank you City of Carrollton. Put on 800+ miles on my bike this year with Covid. When will the Old Denton extension to Rosemeade and beyond be completed?

Kerrville River Trail

Excellent trail

November, 2020 by dutchstar4018

We are visiting Kerrville for the month and have already biked this trail a couple of times. It is great on the week days but I was told it’s really crowded on the weekends, maybe that’s a better time to walk it rather than bike it. There are quite a few geocaches on the trail too, we enjoyed that!

Worth a note, the trail is nowhere near the location currently indicated on the TrailLink map, it is in Kerrville running through the center of town.

Randy Morrow Trail

Not for novice bike riders

November, 2020 by battchief227

More for experienced mountain bike riders. Although some areas are paved , there are extremely steep areas which most will have to walk and areas of narrow dirt trail with steep drop offs. This is not a trail for a family ride. There many blind curves as well, putting hikers at risk when a mountain bike comes flying down the trail. I rate this a 3 at best.

John Barfield Trail

Perfect

November, 2020 by carrasquillo79

Paved, distance seems right, not overcrowded. Perfect for bikes or walk, jog. No parking.

Columbia Tap Rail-Trail

Issues

October, 2020 by jonvink

This trail has issues ... as noted in the reviews here. My issue was a dog running free and the owner not caring. It’s too bad because this would be a great little cut theough from Brays Bayou to downtown.

Cotton Belt Trail (Waco)

Family friendly trail

October, 2020 by karla.texas

I took my grandchildren to ride bicycles on the Cotton Belt Trail. It’s great! No streets to cross. Easy parking. We parked in the middle so we could go either way. Very family friendly.
