White Rock Lake Loop Reviews

White Rock Lake is definitely a gem in Dallas. In the middle of an urban landscape, here is a lake you can kayak, surrounded by a paved walking/biking trail. There are many access points for the trail, so if you’re not trying to do the whole 9+ miles at once, every visit can be a new adventure. Winfrey Park is my personal favorite place to get on. There is a good amount of parking, and if you are having trouble finding a spot, just keep driving around. There is not a bad place to get on. On a pretty day, it can be very packed, and watch out for bikers!


This is one of the best places in DFW. My activity of choice is road biking followed by paddle boarding in front of the historic mansions. Those who were born and raised in Dallas grew up hearing about the urban legend of "The Lady of the Lake".
