This pictures were taken by one of our Facebook followers from our Bike Friendly Garland page. The Mesquite Heritage trail system is well underway, with about 60% of trail already laid down. The trail is soon to connect to the existing Duck Creek Greenbelt at interstate 30. When this happens, the trail is expected to run all the way to town east boulevard, and will be a great destination to get to the shopping mall by bike. Currently the trail isn't very usable, so I would not advise using it until it has been connected through all the street intersections. It's a great thing to be witnessing this changing of the landscape here in the Garland/Mesquite area.

  1. I have just one observation here. Why does the bike path wander like a drunken sailor across the landscape? How much further is this to ride than a more direct (straight) route?
