Lake Ray Roberts Johnson Branch Trail Professional Review and Guide
"With well-marked paved trails, plenty of picnic tables, and a great swimming beach for a post-hike dip, this 3.5-mile loop is well worth the drive. Lake Ray Roberts supplies water to the cities of Dallas and Denton and is named after longtime congressman Ray Roberts, who died in 1993. The lake has two state parks—Isle du Bois and Johnson Branch—and a collection of protected wetlands and wildlife management areas. The nearby Lake Roberts Greenbelt offers 20 miles of trails, but this park tends to have fewer hikers, making it feel worlds away from the Metroplex even though it makes an easy day trip."
