From FM 423 (Main St) in The Colony, head west on North Colony Blvd (name changes to Sparks Rd at park entry) and drive into Stewart Creek Park. Trailhead parking is located on teh left 100 yards past entry sign.
This is my first time here and it’s the best I’ve found for a scenic long run in my six years in Texas. Very little shade and must bring water. Early morning or evening probably best. This address leads you to an emergency access. Porta potty to the left 1 1/4 from trail head.
Walked 10/01/16 /8.79 Miles. Loved this Trail!
Great run on a soft surface. Plenty of wildlife!
My wife and I were in search of a hiking trail to take our young kids and new pup to when we came across this place. At the south head of the trail is a playground with activities for kids of all ages along with picnic tables. We packed a lunch and let the kids play for a bit before we set out.
The trail itself is wide and well groomed. There had been some rain and it's next to a lake so there were some muddy spots, but nothing to deter us. We didn't make it to the north head of the trail but instead took the "loop". This was approximately 3.5 miles round trip. There is plenty of room for both bikers, joggers, and hikers. It is paved gravel, but I would recommend using a mountain bike and not a street bike.
We went in mid-February on an unseasonably warm day, but would definitely make it out there in the spring/summer months. This was exactly what we were looking for and will definitely be back on a regular basis.
I was curious about this trail and made it out there today. Not crowded at all, nice scenery, and overall a great ride. I'll be back!
I'm not sure where rigrunner37 went to, but there is not a charge to enter the trail for resisidents or non-residents. I bike and run on the trail very often and it's very beautiful and has a lot of wildlife. There are plenty of places to stop and rest and enjoy the veiw of the lake.
This is the finest and most scenic trail in the DFW area. Great for mountain biking, running or just walking. The trail winds through native Texas habitat and offers great views of Lake Lewisville.
Although the trial is near Steward Creek Park, the actual trail entrance is outside the park and therefore there is NO fee to use this trail.
Free parking for trail users is provided on the left as you enter Stewart Creek Park (northwest end of trail), before passing the gatehouse & boat ramp of the park. Free trail parking is also provided at the southern end of the trail - Ridgepointe Park, 4401 Standridge Dr. the Colony Texas 75056. Driving into Stewart Creek Park does require purchasing a pass (day or annual), but you can walk or bike into the park for free.
**WARNING** I never made it to the trail because non-Colony residents are required to pay a $10 day pass fee!?! That's way too expensive just to go for a run.
Fantastic trail! One of the best kept secrets in all of north Texas. I bike about 10 miles roundtrip from my home in Ridgepointe through the Stewart Creek park to the waters edge. The natural scenery is incredible and the trail is never crowded.
