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."
