Nice Suburban Ride

s

I decided to ride this trail as I have walked my dogs on parts of it numerous times. I went on a week day mid morning. The stretch from Bear Creek Park just east of 377 until almost Keller Smithfield was pretty heavy with Mom's, strollers, and pedestrians. Riding this stretch was tedious with all the human traffic, but scenic. Once I got to Bear Creek Parkway, I was able to ride at a decent pace. There is a bit of hill work between Keller-Smithfield and Davis, but not overly strenuous. If one allows for the slower pace in the shaded, scenic part of the trail and pushes it on the open part, can get an ok workout.

Very Scenic

s

Parked at the Keller Sports Complex. The trail winds through Bear Creek park and along some beautifully landscaped yards and ends at the golf course. Lots of short bridges, creeks, shady areas and one long, steady hill up Bear Creek Rd. itself. Will definitely ride again and again. Great for hot days because of all the shade. Lots of places to stop and sit.

Great Recreational Biking/Walking/Running

s

Connected at the west end & ended up being a 30 min. ride round trip (perfect for leasure bike ride). There are several bridges, open space, shaded in many parts of the trail. Great scenery along the way! Note, there are quite a few turns so not the best for serious bike training.

Great for Families!

s

We went for the first time over the weekend and really enjoyed it. We had a 6 year old, 4 adults and a stroller and nobody had any trouble with the trails. The highlight of our walk was being under the railroad bridge when a train went over the top - quite exciting!

I suspect that during soccer and baseball season it will be difficult to park, but no problem this time of year.

A Regular Ride

s

Although I knew the trail existed, I had no idea how beautiful it is. It's easy to get to from my home off Keller Hicks, and an easy ride with lots of shade and scenery.

If there was a way this trail could be connected to the Cottonbelt trail (a little further south), I'd be in cyclist heaven!

So much fun!

My college-age son and I found this trail here on TrailLink and headed out to give it a try. We rode our bikes from the parking lot surrounding the athletic complex (the western end point) to the neighborhood at the other end of this trail (the eastern end point). We rode at a fairly leisurely pace and it turned out to be almost an hour of good, healthy, relaxing fun! There is one less-than-easy hill on Bear Creek Pkwy, just east of Keller-Smithfield Rd, while heading east. It's not too steep, and it's not very long, but it's steep enough and long enough to be considered 'easy-to-moderate' or 'moderate', we think. The rest of the trail is 'easy.'
The creeks were swollen with rain water and there were lots of pretty views. We were in and out of the woods for most of the ride. We simply had a blast!

s

Use this trail regularly for running/biking. Currently getting some nice upgrades at Rufe Snow Drive. Lots of friendly users. Always feel very safe. Nice landscaping, homes, facilities, and maintained well.
