White Rock Lake Park Loop Trail Reviews

Rode this for the first time 6/06/2017. My son and I went all the way around the lake. This is a great bike trail! I found that it was well maintained, the views are great, and there are all kinds of people out enjoying the trail. Kids with training wheels, all the way up to very experienced riders flying by on their road bikes. We rode it on a Tuesday, so it wasn't too busy. My son has been there on the weekend, and it gets kinda crazy. Lots more people. The ride doesn't have too many elevation changes, but there are a few that work you. Overall, it's a great ride!

Great ride. So many different paths to take or just stay on the main path.

First time to ride the trail. Catch it from 635 & Hillcrest @Valley View Park and connected to the edge of White Rock Lake @Lawther. Thoroughly enjoyed the trail as it winds behind soccer fields, restaurants off Forest, and new modern homes going up close to Royal & Walnut Hill. A lot of foot traffic as well as seasoned bikers. Beware the paved stripes are faded and the trail can get down to narrow parts. Overall I love the connection. Ps. If riding to the lake always stay RIGHT as the trails branch off to shorter trail heads on the way.

Did the trail around the lake and was disappointed on the. East side of the lake. The trail is not being maintained so it is rougher than a cob. The West side is all maintIned nicely. I would stick to the West side of the lake and just enjoy what there is until Dallas gets around to doing something.
