Location: Ray Roberts Greenbelt Corridor

Difficulty:  Solitude:
Miles Hiked: 20.00 Miles  Elapsed Time: 8 hours

Comments: The Greenbelt is not really a hard hike, but it is the best "long distance" hiking trial I have found near my home that can be used for preparation for longer hikes. I use the horse trail if I want some more realistic hiking conditions and the foot/bike path to make better time. It can be crowded on nice weekend days, but almost vacant if you can go on weekdays. I have hiked this trail many times. You can make it as short or long as you desire by where you start and finish. For a really long hike, start at Hwy 380 and hike up into Lake Ray Roberts State Park and its trails.
