Trail shared by John Shuttlesworth

A great way to shorten or extend your trip through the Clear Creek Natural Area.

Description

This trail connects the Wetlands Trail with the Fisherman's Trail. You can start your journey on either end. This is a doubletrack trail that varies between grass and dirt surfaces. From the south you travel through an evergreen thicket on a nicely maintained grass doubletrack spotted with redbuds. You then cross the very western tip of the wetlands where your trail can be a bit soft, but your feet should remain dry for the duration of this trek.

The trail turns to a dirt road and then to a singletrack as you pass by a short connecting trail for the Old Wetlands Road and nears the Fisherman's Trail. The southern portion of this trail can be a bit exposed, although it doesn't take long to reach the shade of the forest, so be sure and wear a hat. Overall, this is a great trail that provides an option to shorten or lengthen your journey through Clear Creek Natural Area.

Flora & Fauna

There are plenty of wildlife viewing opportunities as coyotes, wild hogs, raccoons and other forest and wetland creatures call this area home. For a birding checklist visit the City of Denton's website at: cityofdenton.com/residents/…
