Pilot Knoll Trail

Great trail for a quick get a way from DFW. Very sandy, but nicely shaded even on a bright sunny day. I started at the park entrance of pilot knoll and went to the bridge and back. Total trip was 8 miles.

First time to this trail. I parked at Murrell Park (Free) and hiked to Rockledge Park and back. It was a very enjoyable hike. Mild grade increases/decreases with an occasional short steep grade. 90% of the trail was occupied by bikers but they were not a bother at all. Everyone was very courteous. At a steady pace, it took me about 1:45 min out to Rockledge and 1:45 back. It was a good little hike. Not knowing what the trail was going to be like, I wore my hiking boots but running shoes would prove just as worthy as there were several people running the trails. Most places along the trail are only wide enough for one person or bike so when bikers come it is usually required to step off the trail while they pass. I would say every skill level of hiking, including kids, could make this a great outing. If you're looking for more extensive climbing and steep hills, this would be too simple. I've heard the west side of the trail is a little more challenging. That will be next on my list. Overall, this a great hike to get away and enjoy a break from the concrete that everyone can do.

My wife and I biked there today. We are new to mountain biking but had a blast. The trails we rode on were for the most part easy. Several areas had some big ruts that caused us to have to walk the bikes through. For hiking and geocaching, it's a great place, one of my favorites. Bring water.

Went on this trail with my friend and my dog (60lb mix). Some places were narrow so you couldn't walk side by side but good. Can be slippery when wet, as most of the steps are wood.
Lots of great places for dogs to get in the water!! There was a point on the trail where we had to turn around so we did a total of 3 miles.
Entrance is behind the pond with the swan. Go across the bridge and you'll see the trail head with a map.

Was really excited about the 6 mile loop, but not well marked at all, we were super lost, and ended up covering 9 miles. Loved the deer, but bring a gps!!!! And water... The fountains near camp sites we came across were all out of order!

Awesome last minute trail pick for spur of the moment walk with daughter and dog. Clear, clean paths and nice wooded shade made for a great evening. This one will be a favorite. Traffic and train sounds did not bother us.

Sansom Park Trail

Took my dog on the top trails and realized there is way more than 2.2 miles. We loved the trails, especially the tight turns and sudden climbs. There was a little trash, but it didn't bother me much. As we started our hike we ran into a doe, she was beautiful and watched us for a little while. Additionally, we saw tons of geckos and lizards, beautiful birds, a woodpecker, and the great waterfalls. Be careful of trails crossing paths and make sure to have a good general idea of where you want to go and how to get back. I definitely recommend this park and the trails, I know I will definitely return.

This place is always fun, but keep in mind there are easy sides...and hard sides. If you are afraid of heights i would not recommend the hard side. Definitely a must!
