HA! So I just deleted this long, detailed, glowing review of this excellent trail, then thought, "what the heck am I doing!!". Stay away and leave this gem to the locals that live on or nearby the trail, like myself.
But if you promise to come only once or twice to check it out, then bring your dog on a leash or your bicycle (road or mountain) or just your walking shoes...you will not be disappointed. It is exceedingly safe with daily Trail Stewards on bikes and the occasional quad runner with a park police officer, astonishingly beautiful, unexpectedly quiet, and you are guaranteed to come away thinking...wow, this was much, much better than I ever expected! Not perfect, but definitely worth a visit.
I'll leave it at that.
My husband and I love this trail, today I had a scare while walking the trail. We came face to face with 3 lynx or maybe Bobcats. Very amazing sight to see but we where startled. They climbed up the tree and we could hear them fighting. Just be aware at all times and enjoy the beauty of this trail.
I heard about this trail and went to ride this week. Very nice trail, the designers added unique features to personalize the trail with tree trunk carvings, very nice landscapes, pretty cool bridges, fences were nice, and just a great experience. Trail markers and maps are very helpful. Kudos to the city of Irving for the investment and maintenance, we will return regularly.
Was glad to find this trail relatively close to home. Fairly well maintained and a nice ride with two exceptions: 1. Far too many intersections with pretty heavy automobile traffic. Too many drivers has very little regard for bikers and you have to be extremely careful crossing. 2. In the Lake Dallas area for some reason they have placed giant barricades over 3/4 of the bike paths at each intersection with the road. These are very close to the road, requiring even more caution and manipulating to not only avoid traffic, but navigate around to continue on the trail. I even scraped my leg on one barricade while trying to get by it.
6/23/18- Headed toward NRH, the trail was shutdown at mile 9 for construction. Nicely kept, clean trails. Moderate incline from grapevine to NRH, but mostly flat terrain. We enjoyed the ride despite killer winds there and back.
I depend on this trail for much needed daily walks but am slowly beginning to avoid it as there's too many times I've been almost run over by cyclists. Avoid the off-the-path trail which runs along the creek on the weekends as there are too many cyclists and they'll expect you to get over and stand in thigh-high weeds for them. Also, some race down steep slopes so fast that it will be impossible for them to stop for a pedestrian. The path along the creek is better on the weekdays. Pedestrians really need to keep their wits about them and listen and watch for cyclists coming from behind or in front as many won't be watching for pedestrians.
I will first say this: If you are a beginner, this trail is not for you! (at-least the full length isn't) -- I consider myself an avid rider, and I must admit, this trail was a tough one!
There is many steep levels, both asphalt, and crushed granite. You have to be prepared to go uphills, and often!
The views are what made it though! You start off at a park scene, and end up at the beautiful Lake Georgetown. (depending on where you start).
This trail is a must ride for avid trail riders.
I have been riding this trail for the past 4 years and always love this trail. It has a great deal of variety and is very scenic. You can ride around the lake or head downtown! Gets a little busy during the summer on the weekend mornings, but never too bad.
Great views, mixed use park. Favorite park thus far for concrete. decent MTB
The trail is not well kept. I brought my street bike only to dodge holes in the asphalt and then 1 mile in have to turn around because of the gravel that is on the rest of the trail
I wish I had found the reviews here before deciding to ride my bike on the Cottonwood Trail two days ago, because it was a bizarre experience. I got on the path from the White Rock Creek Trail and it started out fine, but not for long. I found myself riding past sketchy characters and some homeless men right off to the side of the path. I did not see another person walking nor biking the entire time and once the path led to the freeway where it takes a sharp right, it continued to look worse...no one else around, trash, and graffiti everywhere. It didn't feel right to me, so I decided to turn around and head back. Then it became really bizarre. I was pedalling quite fast because I wanted to quickly get beyond the rough area that the path runs through and as I approached riding under an overpass I came upon two police officers with their guns drawn. I slowed down and looked around and saw that there were several officers all around with guns drawn or ready, including the overpass. One of the them yelled down to me to get out of there quickly. So, I ended up on my bike in a rough part of town with no way to get home. I was lost and thankfully had my phone on me and was able to reach someone to come pick me up. (I later found the sad reason for all those police officers being on/around the path.) Needless to say, I will NEVER ride that path again because it is too risky.
