Trinity Trail

Trinity Trail Professional Review and Guide

"This is a moderate day hike along the shores of Lake Lavon.

Lake Lavon, managed by the Army Corps of Engineers, rests in an area of gently rolling grasslands. Here and there patches of woods break up the open terrain, especially along the creeks. The lake is not wilderness—homes, parks, and farms line some of the lakeshore. The parks are popular, especially on weekends, but the trail is surprisingly little used. Equestrian users are probably as common as hikers. The trail makes an easy day trip escape from Dallas. The round trip length is almost eighteen miles, but a car shuttle halves the distance. Even shorter walks are possible by utilizing Collin Park in the middle as a trailhead.

The trail is very faint, especially at first. However, the trail winds along the open lakeshore for most of its distance, making it difficult to get lost, even without the trail."

This is a good starter trail. I saw a few horseback riders and a few others hikers. It was a beautiful day. I think the directions there could be clearer but once I was there it was great.

When we started our first attempt to find this trail we found that many of the county roads in this area have now been given names instead so finding East Fork park was a challenge. Then we found that the trail at the East Fork end is hardly marked at all. We had to back track to the car. We moved to the Brockton park end (again the roads have changed names) and had a much better experience. Since we lost some time on the first attempt we didn't have enough cool hours to make it to Collin Park but we'll try again starting on the north end.

This trail is difficult to find unless you start at the beginning. Don't try and find it in Collin Park. The trail is mainly a horse trail and follows the road.
