Leon Creek Greenway

Excellent

August, 2020 by hijodediosmrm

I completed the trail today from the Military Drive Trailhead entrance to the end of the trail near the Rim shopping center and back to the starting point . I give this trail a rating of 5 stars. I hoe to do it again next week at a faster pace.

Tribute Shoreline Nature Trail

a start

August, 2020 by rubster1

Have not hiked in years. Great for a start. Loved it. Lots of open trail and even some shade. get here early if it is summer-- or you cook. apply sunscreen-- a must. Bathrooms shown are NOT available-- they have a pin code. plan ahead.

Kerrville River Trail

nice trail

August, 2020 by luv2ridemb09_tl

I really nice trail along the Guadalupe River that goes Kerrville. One ends starts at Kerrville Schneider park and goes 5 miles out and then you have to turn around. Goes through 2 nice parks. The trail is has tree coverage over majority but some parts are out in the sun. Hopefully the town will add more in the future.

Brushy Creek Regional Trail

Entitled bike riders

August, 2020 by scott358

I like to hike this trail but find that too many bike riders think they’re entitled to ride fast and own the trail two abreast. I’ve seen really disappointing behavior, especially now that more of us are at home and looking for ways to exercise outdoors. There are dedicated bike lanes and shoulders on Parmer. Let them use those if they have to ride fast.

A-train Rail Trail

Ridden Parts for Several Years

August, 2020 by c92vette

I have ridden this trail when in the area for several years now. Covered all of the trail that is now complete. It's a rather flat trail not in any wooded areas to speak of. The only part of the trail where a cyclist can gather some speed is where it crosses Lake Lewisville. That's about a mile and a half run but right alongside I-35. Actually the trail took over some of the shoulder of the Stemmons Freeway. The southern part as divided by the lake is difficult to navigate until you learn where the trail leads. There are busy intersections especially around Hwy 121 and the baseball fields south of there. For the northern part there a a lot of rail track crossings and depot passage including gates at one depot. At certain times pedestrians who are accessing the transit may interfere with safe passage while cycling through the depot areas. There are several switchback gates along the full length where I have to unclip and tip toe my bike through. With other areas along the route it is best to leave the trail and ride in the street as the trail is too narrow and has sharp turns. A plus for the ride is on the south side of the lake. A short side street ride on Oakridge Blvd. will take you right down to Lakeside Park for a 4 mile or so loop. Also a short ride from the trail at the Highland Village Station up to Tower Bay Park joins a nice loop around Copperas Point. Other than those two points this trail is pretty average as far as trails go.

Salado Creek Greenway

For those that roller skate...

July, 2020 by kristamu2006

Finding decent trials for roller skating can be tough. I have skated the Salado Creek Greenway from the Oak Well Trail Head off Austin Hwy to McAllister and then McAllister to Phill Hardberger Park and it’s doable on roller skates. There are some hills, blind curves, and debris that you need to watch for but it’s manageable. There is lots of shade on the route and some exposed areas. Plenty of water is a must for south Texas heat and humidity. The trails are super slippery for skate wheels when there is even a tiny bit of wetness left over from rain. If you are comfortable t-stopping, plow stopping, staggering, and maybe even turning to stop on your toe stops, then you can manage this route. There are some places that I found I can practice going backwards down hills (for more control).

Lone Star Trail

new trail!

July, 2020 by missie141

We explored the newly opened section of this trail that leads west. It’s nice and wide just like the other section that runs east. A large retention pond is visible from the trail. Hopefully this will be a good birding spot during the winter.
