Three and three tenths miles around the lake is a path frequented by many: joggers, walkers, bicyclists, families, children, dog walkers. The path really is not wide enough for serious bike rides especially with the many strollers and casual walkers not paying attention to what side of the path they should be on.
I jog here when working this side of Dallas. The path is not well maintained. But its location is perfect for me so that I do not have to drive far to get a good run for the day. The morning is best to run because there are few people there.
Bachman Lake is at the foot of the runway of Love Field. The jets that fly over are just ready to land and although quite noisy, it is fun to watch them fly over in the evening.
