I go on this trail all the time. I love it, it has a lot of mileage on it and the terrain is good. The only thing that sucks is all the bike riders that get in the way. It's great if you want somewhere close and want a good workout.

Ran part of the MADD to End Gate section. Good trail, fun to run and definitely worth the short drive. Looking forward to more mileage on this one.

kaiser has it wrong about the distance. Murrell park is only about half way from Rockledge Park. If you keep going, it's another 1.5 miles to the MADD shelter and then another 4+ miles to the End Gate. The stretch between MADD and End Gate is the most technical of the trail.

This trail is about as beautiful as you can find in the DFW area, but that's not saying much. It starts from Rockledge park and ends at Murrell Park. The official distance of the trail is about 9 miles, but every local hiker that I have spoken with agrees with me that it can't be more that 5 miles. It only took me an hour and a half. If you're starting from Rockledge Park the first mile and a half or so is quite nice. It's right along the lake which provides a view and a nice breeze. The further you go the further you leave the lake. It's quite an easy trail with few rocks and hardly any incline. About half way along the trail you begin to cross a series of abandoned roads. Most of these roads won't lead you to anywhere fast, but you can find some nice spots to camp (illegaly). There is only one road about three miles in that you will want to take in order to get back on the dirt trail. You'll know it when you see it, because the trail does not continue directly on the other side of the road. All in all, not a bad trail for Northern Texas--very easy. Watch out for bikers though.

Much more than 6 miles here. Almost all single track. Mostly easy, but loop west of "Old Henderson Road" has some climbs and a few rocks, etc. Very uncrowded.
