Bachman Lake Park Loop Trail Reviews

One and Done

s

This trail is a good length for a walk—3.5 mile concrete trail around a man made lake with just a bit of shade. It seems like a popular place to walk, ride, or fish. However, it’s near Dallas Love, the light rail, and some busy streets. It’s like experiencing a sampling of transportation. It’s the first trail I’ve been on with lots of signs for calling 911. Not sure what that says about this trail. Park in the lots near Lakefield and Northwest. There are much prettier trails than this one.

Under construction

s

Much of the trail is under construction and not accessable at this time.

ABUELO

I WALK THIS TAILS AS OFTEN AS 5 DAYS A WEEK. HAVE BEEN WALKING FOR A LONG TIME. BIKERS COULD WARN WALKERS WHEN PASSING.

EVERYONE SHOULD BE AWARE, THE ROAD TO PROGRESS IS ALWAYS UNDER CONSTRUCTION.

What would make this place better?

s

I recently visited this park as well. I thought it had great potential to be great again. Currently there is a lot of construction, however, the paved trail that encompasses the park is still intact.

If there was one thing that would fix this park to make it enjoyable again, what would it be?

Women don't go here!

s

Lots of men just waiting around in the parking lot. Very unsafe feeling. I was told later that they were all just waiting for the prostitutes to show up. It's unfortunate because there are some children's play grounds there as well.
Also, the sidewalk is torn up pretty badly on the back end (by the airfield). I will never return to this place.

trail under renovation

s

Nice trail around the lake; however, a good portion of the trail is under renovation. We were forced to ride on the beaten down grass path that is mostly used by pedestrians. Just not worth the trip at this point. We would consider heading back when construction is complete. Definitely a beginner trail, not a ton of inclines to work with.

Good location, good workout

s

This trail is close enough for all residents living inside the loop. It is long enough and has 3 slopes for a good workout . It is narrow at times and can get crowded at times. Therefore I would say its good for beginner trail bikers who do not gain a lot of speed. There are planes landing at all times so at times a plane or two may pass overhead. It could be widened and made smoother to develop it further.
Water fountains are on the park side only (have not used them so far).
