Rio Grande River Trail

Poorly maintained

October, 2017 by jimfinn12

This trail is very poorly maintained. Bushes are over grown, puddles create mud which covers the hard surface in dirt, and and most recently horses have been using the trail and haven't been cleaned up after. I had to ride portions of this trail with my shirt over my nose. I've ridden twice and gotten thorns in my tires both times. This trail probably works for hiking or running but it's a bust for biking because of the maintenance issues.

Chisholm Trail

One of the best

October, 2017 by jimpipes

I rode this, today, for the first time. For a city trail, it's very good. I would rank it in the top 5 trails in Dallas County, and I have ridden most of them. It's a nice long trail with few stops because the trail goes under the major streets. All concrete and in good shape. Very scenic because it runs beside a creek. For the majority of the trail, you can ride on both sides of the creek. Water fountains are everywhere. This goes through multiple parks. Good job, Plano!

Bluebonnet Trail

3 stars

September, 2017 by jimpipes

I bicycled the section of the Bluebonnet Trail that's between Preston Rd. and Alma. Rd, today. It's entirely under, not one, but two sets of high-voltage electric lines. It's all concrete (in good shape), and the grass is mowed and maintained. Not very scenic, but if you wish to put in some miles, this would be the trail for you. I noticed only one water fountain that was right off the trail. This trail goes through a few city parks and recreational areas, so there might be water and restrooms there. No traffic lights to wait on, but many busy streets to cross through. Don't try this trail during rush hour. I did it around 1 PM., and I didn't have to wait very long on traffic to get through the many intersections.

The western section of the Bluebonnet Trail is actually a connection trail to 2 other trails, so I don't even know why it's considered part of the Bluebonnet Trail. The southern segment of the Legacy trail dead ends into the Bluebonnet Trail which then connects to the Shady Brook Trail, near Midway Rd. It's all concrete and pretty much is just a wide sidewalk next to Spring Creek Rd. Many stop lights to wait at, and I don't recommend it. The Legacy Trail and Shady Brook Trail are good, though.

Shady Brook Trail

Do all 3 trails!

September, 2017 by jimpipes

I bicycled the Shady Brook Trail today. It's kind of a short trail, but is scenic and is all concrete. It runs mainly in back of residential homes near a creek. Lots of shade and a nice trail. At the easternmost end of the trail (at Midway Rd.), it connects to the western part of the Bluebonnet Trail, which then connects to the southern part of The Legacy Trail.

The Shady Brook and Legacy Trails are great. The western section of the Bluebonnet Trail has about 6-7 traffic lights, which are at busy intersections. The trail is basically a wide sidewalk along Spring Creek Dr. and is not that great, but it connects the Shady Brook Trail with the Legacy Trail which are great. Do all 3 for a decent length bike ride.

DeKalb Trace

DeKalb to Avery

September, 2017 by sparksfive

The trail through DeKalb isn't very pleasant but just west of the local sawmill at CR3215 the trail turns into a nice rustic path. It's not gravel and I've only mountain/trail biked down it. And only 4 miles. But I've totally enjoyed it. I go down 2-3 times a week.

Watters Branch Trail

Great Trail

August, 2017 by streak1

I've run this trail since 2003.Builders are required by the City of Allen to complete the portions of trail at builder cost within their house/business office development.The trail now has expanded to about 7 miles.Most is tree shaded to protect you during hot summer weather.It's a great trail for running/walking.Bikers are few on this trail.You'll see birds,coyote,bobcat,and an occasional copperhead on the trail.

Town Creek Hike and Bike Trail

Very Nice & Clean

August, 2017 by mark140

The Trail is Clean Safe and well lighted. I bike at 5am so the lights are nice. Short flat fully paved trail with bathrooms and benches. Trail great for Families or for beginners. Does anyone know the best route between town creek trail and Lake MineralWells Trail. A connection between both would be nice.

Ray Roberts Greenbelt

South half closed, long term

August, 2017 by jimpipes

I rode this trail this past weekend. The section of trail between Hwy. 380 and Hwy. 428 was closed. In fact, after talking to an employee of a local bike shop, it sounds like this half of the trail may be closed, forever. There was much flooding a few years ago, which left feet of mud piled up in areas of the trail. It needs to be re-engineered and the funds aren't there to do it. Don't count on riding this half of the trail in the next several years, at least.

I rode the north half of the trail from Hwy. 428 to Lake Ray Roberts. It's 95% packed gravel and a great trail. Grasshoppers were everywhere - that's the worst I have to say about it. There are 3 buildings along the way which have restrooms and sinks in them. No water fountains but water available from the sinks. I'm pretty sure you are supposed to pay $7 to park in any of these State Park parking lots. It's an honor system where you place money inside an envelope and deposit that envelope inside a box. I didn't know this and didn't have $7 on me. Shameful me. I didn't get a ticket (if they issue tickets) but noticed a Parks and Rec. truck pulling in as I was leaving, around 1 o'clock. So, bring $7 with you to avoid problems.

I recommend this trail, even though it's only about half of what it used to be. I was told the closed half, was the best half. Oh well - Off to the next trail!

Southern Walnut Creek Hike and Bike Trail

Be Careful

August, 2017 by tldix1958

Great trail BUT please be careful! A couple of bikers were assaulted this morning by a man on a mountain bike. He was acting bizarrely they said. Please be aware of what is going on around you!

Southern Walnut Creek Hike and Bike Trail

Very good!

July, 2017 by melbxj

The trail is shaded in most places, meandering through nature on either side. Excellent signage is provided along the trail.

Highly recommend.

Nolan Creek Hike and Bike Trail

Great walking

July, 2017 by ygetmad

Parking is located off Pearl St, Belton, TX plenty of restrooms plenty of benches along trail , some shaded areas!

Buffalo Bayou Trail

Stay away from EADO trail (North of Buffalo Bayou)

July, 2017 by m.alexrod.tech

7/22/2017
Location: McKee St. bridge entrance (no paved entrance) North of Buffalo Bayou heading east past Jensen Dr. until it converts into Swiney St.

This trail has no signs of entry or maintenance and is filled with homeless people seen along the trail (use caution).

The path under the 59 overpass seems especially unsafe hidden from public view and also filled with homeless and suspicious-looking people.

I wouldn't recommend and would avoid this trail (especially if alone). I couldn't find any updates by the city of Houston on the construction progress of this trail.
