Campion Trail

Long, lovely ride

October, 2019 by mmezedd_tl

It's nice to find a wide trail, well paved, concrete, mostly uncovered so hot in the summer. No great elevation changes so many cycle clubs on the route. There's an equestrian trail that parallels part of it near Spring Trail Park that makes for a nice mountain bike or running path. Passes through some nice suburban parks and wooded areas. Parking mid trail at the police station at the Spring Trail Park.

White Rock Lake Park Loop Trail

Nice city ride

October, 2019 by mmezedd_tl

It's unusual to find such a nice, well maintained loop in the city where you can park and ride easily. Well used with many walkers, dogs and kids to watch out for but most are watchful of being passes. It's an easy scenic loop with pretty lake view for most of it . The trail connects to the White Rock Creek path if you want more distance.

Katy Trail (Dallas)

Great City Ride

October, 2019 by mmezedd_tl

This is a lovely, easy urban ride, usually quite busy but manageable traffic. Lots of walkers with dogs and people to dodge but mostly disciplined users who keep right and expect to be passed on the left. Separate path for walkers in quite a bit of it. Runs through beautiful neighbourhoods and by interesting eateries. Starts near the Magnolia Dart station with parking in nearby city park with baseball field and abruptly ends near the AA stadium.

Trail de Paris

Lovely ride

October, 2019 by mmezedd_tl

This is an easy ride from Paris to Blossom where it turns wild. Easy grade, wide, scenic, mostly sheltered path and little traffic. Suitable for any bike up to that point.

Chaparral Rail Trail

A pleasant ride

October, 2019 by mmezedd_tl

The five miles from the Onion shed in Farmersville to around the junction with FM 2194 is wide, well maintained and easy riding for most any bicycle. After that is it gravelly and very overgrown and more suitable for a mountain bike . The route is very scenic and quiet with a lot of butterflies, cardinals and horses visible in the fields but few people or cars at the crossings.

Brays Bayou Greenway Trail

cityscape ride

October, 2019 by whitesj40

Started from Braeburn Glen Park end and rode into the city. Until you reach 610 all of the road crossings involve going through the intersections and Houston traffic is not great at watching for bicycles. Certainly would be tough with kids. The paths are being worked on still but they are nice and wide where complete. Road and bayou construction breaks up the trail just before the medical center but after that you can ride fairly well in the bayou without so many road crossings. The bayou is a concrete lined channel all the way to MacGregor Park. So don’t expect a picturesque river. There are however fish visible throughout the length of the channel.

Terry Hershey Park Hike & Bike Trail

nice and clean

October, 2019 by mattia.a

10 miles of clean and wide concrete roads to be shred with pedestrians. Sometimes you can deviate into gravel trials and vary the experience. You will enjoy this easy trial for sure.

Randy Morrow Trail

Nice bike ride into town

October, 2019 by trukas2013

We usually ride this trail from the campground/dam into town. It's a nice trail that crosses the San Gabriel River several times. The trail is shaded where you ride along the river. You have to ride through a neighborhood for a small part, but it's not hard to figure out where to go. Coming back, the ride up the dam is the hardest part of the trail, but it's doable.
In October of 2018 the bridge crossing the river into town was damaged due to flooding. Not sure if and when it has been repaired.

Oak Valley Trail

Nice Trail

September, 2019 by metsys

This trail is not too bad. There’s a small parking lot on Oak Valley Park North. There’s a couple small hills that make it easier to ride. The uphill on the way back to the park was a little tough. My 7yr old daughter had to walk it back up.

Trinity Skyline Trail

Disappointed

September, 2019 by tbowen2

It's hard to get to, and difficult to figure out. I could not find how to get to the northeastern side of the trail. It seemed a little less safe than the rest of the trails in Dallas.

C. Shane Wilbanks Trail

Nice trail that's close to home...

September, 2019 by rocketsteve1965

The trail is minimally manicured until you get to the Oak Grove Park portion, where the trail is heavily manicured. Being close to home gives my wife and I the opportunity to ride to the park's picnic pavilion and watch the sunrise most every weekend. Pedestrian traffic is light during the week and moderate on the weekends. Overall, a nice ride for those not wanting to do the MTB trails.

Arbor Hills Trail

Nice park, but...

September, 2019 by rocketsteve1965

With the high volume of pedestrians and dog walkers using the concrete paths, riding a bike at anything over a casual pace will be a rare occasion. Since most of the off-road trails are "pedestrian only", except for the small patch of DORBA trail on the southern border of the park, most of the scenic areas of the park are off limits, unless you are willing to hoof it. That's a shame, because the "pedestrian only" trails are lightly manicured and would make for a great, low-impact ride for those not wanting to ride the rougher DORBA trail.

Again, nice park, but I don't see myself going back for another visit.
