This 5-mile out-and-back hike through dense forest by the banks of the Elm Fork of the Trinity River links Lake Ray Roberts to Lake Lewisville and offers great bird watching and plenty of wildlife, including cottontail rabbits hopping over the trail. Easily accessed off US 380 in Denton, the trail stretches as far as 10 miles, but can easily be shortened or lengthened as needed. While its dense canopy of trees doesn’t make for great views, the shade is welcome during the summer months when this trail is still enjoyable. We access the trailhead from US 380, but you can also get there via FM 455 and FM 42.
