I started the hike at FM 455 access point hiked to the FM 486 access point and back up the other side on the dirt trail.. Its around 10 miles. You have the option to use the dirt trail or concrete trail. However; the dirt trail stops about 3 miles in and then your stuck to walk back the same way you came.

Lovely flat, wide, scenic trail surrounded by trees. Perfect for a variey of activities. Went for a leisurely walk on a chilly Saturday afternoon. Saw plenty of friendly runners, bikers, and dog-walkers (but not too many!).

Very flat, fast trail for anyone training for a half/full marathon looking to leave the asphalt for a while. You CANT get lost. The 380 parking lot has no water, so plan accordingly.

Canoed Elm Fork of Trinity from just below Ray Roberts Dam to SH 380 (Greenbelt Corridor). Took ~6hrs (on water). We put in below dam at 10:05 am and took out at SH 380 at 4:10 pm. First leg of trip was good (RR Dam to FM 428). Got a 4-5 minute close up view of a beaver hanging out on log in the river. Lots of fish (mostly spotted alligator gar), couple of snakes. There was a couple of low water spots where we had to push, but river was fairly ‘passable’, not a lot of blockage. We stopped for about 15-20 min at the FM 428 park. The river was deeper on the second leg, but we hit numerous blockage points, at least 7 or 8, with very large logs, some were actually large ‘log-jams’. We were able to maneuver, climb, move logs, etc. to get through all but one. But the one had a short and easy ‘land bypass’, only 10-12 yds. River was murky but not too trashy. With the late start, and since it was mid-summer, it was pretty hot. But we were able to stay in the shade for the most part, so it was not too bad. High temp was near 100 degrees.

I have done both hiking and biking the full 20+ miles. For biking it is nice flat trail. For hiking I would say start on the equestrian(gets really muddy on rainy days) on the south end(hwy 380) and then it will merge around 4 miles north then again will split at the hwy 428. After 428 continue on equestrian for about 3 miles(around 2.5 miles there is big white tree with lots of eagle nests, your camera will like that).You will see a old steel bridge. The equestrian trail is closed little bit north of that bridge. You should cross the river(not much water, may be a feet deep) at the bridge then merge with the bike trail. Took me about 6+ hrs for hiking and 2+ hrs for biking. Have seen deer,snakes and armadillo. If you go in the evening you can see plenty of armadillos.I took at least 3-4 15 minute breaks.

Great paddle close to home. Snakes on fallen trees, dangerous to portage.

The trail I rode was very flat. If you're just looking to enjoy the scenery then this trail is perfect for that, but more experienced riders may find it too slow.
