Hike, bike, and explore on the Greenbelt Trail.

The Greenbelt Corridor is a 20-mile multi-use trail that meanders alongside the Elm Fork Branch of the Trinity River within the boundaries of Ray Roberts Lake State Park. One of the City's most popular nature trails, it runs north and south from the Ray Roberts Dam to Lake Lewisville, lending 12 miles for equestrians and 10 miles for bicyclists and hikers. The park is a game preserve and no hunting or firearms are permitted.

For $7, adventure seekers can take off from one of three trailhead access points equipped with restrooms, parking, and access to the river for kayaks and canoes.

Lake Ray Roberts Trailhead
There are two small parking lots off Lake Ray Roberts Dam Road. One is just south of Lake Ray Roberts and another adjacent to the dam.

County Road 428 Trailhead
This trailhead access point is located off County Road 428 (Sherman Drive) and has a parking area, restroom, and kayak/canoe put-in and take-out points.

The Greenbelt Trailhead
Access to the south end of the trail is off Highway 377 (University Drive) at the end of the trail and Greenbelt Corridor Park. This park of the trail travels through Clear Creek then ends at the highway. It’s a natural playground where outdoor enthusiasts and families can hike, bike, ride horses, rollerblade, geocache, or simply kick back!
