Southeast Metropolitan Park, Primitive Trail

I hiked this with my dog and 5 month old on a beautiful Saturday. We had it all to ourselves. Very well-marked trail. Goes past two little ponds. Great for dogs and kids. There are some cobwebs to get through, but it wasn't too bad when I went.

This is a well-maintained trail north of Dallas that offers some great cross-country riding. There's nothing overly technical here (a few steep dips, but nothing hard) and while there are a couple of spots with long, very shallow climbs, even those aren't bad. The majority of it alternates between twisting through the woods and open-field riding. It's not terribly long, but it's long enough, there are enough tree gates and obstacles, and there's enough variation that you won't get bored. There are several parts you can really open it up and fly too. It's definitely worth the visit and then the occasional drive up there.

If you live in the area this is a great running trail. Nice and even path- plus the area is well lit at night.

12/5/14 - Hiked the Southeast section from trailhead #4 to Sand Branch than North on the LSHT to trailhead #2 - Go to lonestartrail.org for the maps and it makes the trail a breeze.

It was warm, around the high 70's for the first day out so that was not so fun it being December but that was ok. Trail conditions were overall very good if you understand you are in a wilderness environment where people don't patrol the grounds for your hiking pleasure (they kinda do but its only once or twice a year.)

Stayed at the Pole Creek campsite on the first night it is very well kept and included a map book and register book in a mailbox at the fire ring. Ground was flat room for tents and places for hammocks.

Headed south than north 5 miles around the South Wilderness Loop Trail and camped at the pond at Sand Branch and South Wilderness and it was AWESOME! Frogs croaking sky out low in the high 40's it was great. There is a stream about half a mile south from the trail intersection that has filterable water (at least in December) so we could refill our water supplies as well.

Hiked north the next day on Sand Branch Trail to the LSHT and north again to TH#2!

Trail is flatish; there are gullys and creeks all throughout the trail that if your gear is to heavy you will not be liking life that much but if prepared and in relative shape it is a good little section of trail and I will hike the remainder of the South Wilderness Loop Trail when I can.

First time to bastrop yesterday, and all the baby pine growth is beautiful! It really gives you perspective and i cant wait to come back in 10-15 years and see this place flourish again. We did the full 7.5 mile hike and definitly should have brough more water even on a cool fall day. Not much animal presence out there, yet. Great hike! We didnt see a single other person for hours.

Walnut is my go to trail running location, hit it probably once a week. Fairly close to my house, and tons of trails that range from easy to technical. It's beautiful at any time of year. Lots of mountain bikers.

I hiked Canyon Ridge trail with my dog today and found it enjoyable. I'd say its moderately difficult.. some steep climbs and descents and a few spots where the footing is a little tricky. The old CCC structures were especially neat to check out and there are some nice views. You can hear the highway traffic for the first few miles of the trail which is unfortunate. The park has a $5/adult entry fee.

Easy trail. Very quiet. Nice little out and about. Not much to see at this time of year but still nice to get away from the crowds.
