Greenbelt Corridor Trail
The Greenbelt Corridor is a 10 mile hiking trail or 12 mile equestrian trail that starts at the Lake Ray Roberts dam and travels down to the northern shores of Lake Lewisville. This fun corridor follows the Elm Fork Branch of the Trinity River as it flows down to Lake Lewisville. There are trail heads located at FM 455 (this is the dam area of Lake Ray Roberts), FM428 (south of FM 455 along the Elm Fork / Trinity River), and US 380 (University Drive in Denton) at the Greenbelt Corridor Park.
The Lake Ray Roberts end of the Greenbelt Corridor is very close to the Isle Du Bois Branch of Lake Ray Roberts State Park. Within Isle Du Bois, there are equestrian camping available and equestrian trails within that park.
The great thing about the Greenbelt Corridor is that there are separate equestrian trails and hiking trails.
