Location: Ray Roberts Greenbelt Corridor

Difficulty:  Solitude:
Miles Hiked: 20.00 Miles  Elapsed Time: N/A


This Trail is just out side the city limits of Denton. I actually hiked it on two different days. The first day I went from the 380 TH to the midpoint then double back. The next weekend I hiked from the TH @ Ray Roberts dam back down to the midpoint then doubled back. The trail was very active with other users. I general mix of hikers, trail runners and bike riders with the heaviest concentration of people in the southern half of the trail. The trail is very flat not much up and down at all since it runs in the flats right next to the Elm Fork. Lots of shade in the southern half and lots of sunshine in the northern half. The northern half gets pretty hot with all of the sunshine so early mornings or late evenings is probably the best. All in all a nice hike and I will probably do it again in the future.
