River Legacy Park Trail Professional Review and Guide
"This flat, paved trail is popular with runners, cyclists, and hikers alike. The 1,300-acre park includes 8.0 miles of trails along the West Fork of the Trinity River, where the river’s steep banks are lined with mature bottomland hardwoods that draw abundant wildlife. This hike covers the west side of the park, where the trail is shaded by massive gnarled oaks and is a bit less traveled, perhaps due to the adjacent sewage treatment facility. A bench perched by the riverbank provides a nice mid-hike picnic spot. Distance: 3.2 miles out and back. Approximate hiking time: 1.5 Difficulty: Easy Trail surface: Concrete pavement."
--Kathryn Hopper, Best Easy Day Hikes: Dallas/Fort Worth (Falcon Guides).
This trail is primarily a paved (concrete) trail for bikes. It's flat with a few places for drinking water. I prefer to run on dirt with some hills, but the trail had some nice shade and access to the Trinity River.
Be sure to enter at the main trailhead at Green Oaks and Margaret Drive. The Collings Street entrance is closed for repairs after the floods this spring.
