Comments: I'm a long distance trail walker (I also racewalk in road races) so I was visiting Trinity Trails for trail training. It was a pretty good place to train. It's not a difficult trail (gentle rolling hills, no rocks, not twisty or rooty) but the ground itself is pretty uneven so you still have to watch your footing. I did a 5 mile out-and-back from East Fork to Collin and back to EF. I didn't see a soul until the last mile when I saw four horseback riders and then one hiker. It took me two hours to walk the ten miles. I definitely recommend it. Oh, the MapPoint maps has an error. The East Fork trailhead is just to the West of the park entrance, not the East. It is a an area enclosed with a white metal fence and a horse ring in the middle. When you walk through the gate, the trail is immediately to your left (it runs along the road for a while) not straight ahead toward the lake (there is a small burgeoning trail here that is misleading; it only goes about 75 feet).
