I am new to the area, and was wondering if the White Rock Creek Trail allows dogs? Looking for a place to go for nice walks with a stroller and a dog. I've heard Katy Trail is a bit busy.. not sure if they allow dogs. I looked on trail link.com but there is no mention of dogs. Don't feel like schlepping her over there to find out she's not welcome.

Yes, all the trail around town let you walk/run with dogs *on* a leash.

Yes, dogs are allowed, but be vigilant and aware of what's going on around you at all times. Runners won't really be a problem, but cyclists are zooming by pretty fast all of the time and actual people have been hurt and killed because of collisions on the trail. Don't let your dog just run all over the place. (I've seen people with dogs on the trail just wandering all over the place. Very dangerous.) I try to make the dogs walk next to me on the grass only.

I second what Clarence said. Please be sure that you keep your dog on a short leash, and stay all the way to the right of the trail. I can't believe the way that some walkers (with or without dogs), runners, and cyclists act on the trails - the trails can be dangerous if common sense and courtesey are not observed. There is also an actual dog park at the lake where you can let your dog run around off leash. (And please make sure that you pick up after your dog. I'm sure that you would, but the amount of people who don't clean up after their dogs in Dallas has shocked me.)
