About This Trail

[Total: 0    Average: 0/5]

This trail runs along the shoreline of Lewisville Lake and is great for hiking, strollers, and bikes. It is a mix of natural surface trail and paved trial. There are maps along the way as well as parks with both picnic benches and seating along the way. Trailheads have detailed maps of the trails, as well as bike tool stands, and you may find informational signs on the trails pointing out local wildlife you may see along the trail. You should bring water as there are no public fountains.

Designed as an environmentally sensitive hike-and-bike trail, The Colony Shoreline Trail traverses through 3.5 miles of undisturbed nature, starting at Stewart Creek Park and ending at Ridgepointe Park. The trail materials and routes were carefully selected to diminish their impact on the surrounding natural environment – minimizing disturbance to the native vegetation, protecting large trees and wildlife habitat areas.

Hike it Baby Trail Guide is managed by the Family Trail Guide team. If a trail has been “abandoned” by the initial owner, it gets adopted by the team. Also, if there are no trails in the area, the Family Trail Guide team researches trails that are family friendly in the area to insure that hikes cover all areas where Hike it Baby hikes.
