See the park's website for further rules and regulations. This is a multi-use trail that shares if path with cyclists, hikers, runners, and equestrians.
The trail begins off of the western portion of the Cross Timbers Maroon Trail. It travels along a trail that alternates between single and doubletrack. As with other trails in the Cross Timbers area, expect to find large quantities of loose, fine grain sand for a path. This makes a fairly easy grade trail a bit tiresome at times. You'll follow along an unnamed creek bed that often has a fair amount of water flowing. You'll likely get glimpses of the many bird and wildlife species that call this area their home.
At about the 3/4 mile mark, you'll pass by one of the largest American Elm trees in Texas. It is a hard object to miss and worth a break to stare at its marvelous and enormous canopy. The trail continues a ways and then turns down a old overgrown highway. It is eerily reminiscent of a something out a post-apocalyptic movie. The road travels a short distance allowing you to enjoy some nice breezes and views. After you cross the creek, you'll head again southward. The trail continues through lightly wooded areas dotted with wildflowers. The trail terminates at the northeastern corner of the Cross Timbers Green Trail. Overall, this trail provides a nice run on level ground with some interesting nature to enjoy.
