The Greenbelt Trail

The North Texas Greenbelt Trail  is a 1,500-acre wilderness corridor area that follows the Elm Fork of the Trinity River and features approx. 11 miles of multi-use trails and waterways for bicyclists, equestrians, hikers, kayakers, canoeists, and others. It has become the premier North Texas destination for outdoor enthusiasts from the surrounding area looking to escape the hustle of city life for a little while.
 
The Greenbelt Hike/Bike/Equestrian Trail is located between Lake Ray Roberts and Lake Lewisville. Through a joint project with the Army Corps of Engineers and the Cities of Denton and Dallas, a trail has been established where outdoor enthusiasts will be able to hike and bike the entire length (about 11 miles) of the Elm Fork of the Trinity River.

The corridor is a 20 mile multi-use trail system (12 miles for equestrian and 10 for hike and bike use) that begins at the Ray Roberts Dam and ends at the headwaters of Lake Lewisville. The trail is located on Corps property and maintained by Texas Parks and Wildlife.
 
Horseback riders can start their ride at FM 428 and continue all the way around the east side of Lake Ray Roberts, through the state park at Isle du Bois, and on to Jordan Park, near Pilot Point. Canoeists and kayakers will be able to take advantage of the three access points located at FM 455 (just below the Lake Ray Roberts dam), FM 428, and US 380 for put-in and take-out points.
