Trail Details

Ray Roberts Greenbelt Trails
Denton, Texas

The greenbelt is a wilderness area with approximately 10 miles of multi-use trails and waterways for bicyclists, equestrians, hikers, kayakers and others. The 1,500 acre Ray Roberts Lake/Lake Lewisville Greenbelt Corridor runs north/south along the Elm Fork of the Trinity River, connecting Ray Roberts Lake with Lake Lewisville.

The greenbelt begins as the Elm Fork Trail leading away from the Isle du Bois Unit on the south shore of Ray Roberts Lake near Pilot Point. Heading south, the trail crosses under FM 455 and winds a little over a mile to the Elm Fork canoe and greenbelt access point, with parking and restrooms. Here the trail joins the Elm Fork of the Trinity and splits in two, with one trail, a hard surface hike and bike trail, snaking along the river's west side and another for equestrian use along the east. The two trails converge at the FM428 access point. The trail then proceeds south another six miles along the river's east bank to end at the highway 380 crossing at the headwaters of Lake Lewisville. On the southern portion of the trail, all users are on the East Side of the river. The hard surface trail is for hike and bike use and equestrians may use the construction haul roads.

Entrance fees to access the park are the same as those for Ray Roberts Lake State Park - $3 per adult, free for children age 12 and under.
