“Possum Kingdom Lake Hike and Bike Trail and Picture Spots Near The Cliffs”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

I stayed Memorial Day weekend at The Cliffs resort on Possum Kingdom Lake in Texas. (I reviewed that as well, so check that out too!)
Things I suggest you check out that are nearby:
1. Picture spot along the last part of the drive to The Cliffs. There's a little place to pull over on the side of the road.
2. Hike and Bike Trail---this is closer to The Harbor Grille (I reviewed this too, so check that out) than to The Cliffs. Maybe 5-10 minute drive. I didn't have time that day to check out all of the trails, but the map looked like the area offered several trails. There is a restroom that was pretty clean when we were there too. The one I went on was not very challenging, it was more like a nice stroll up a hill (ok, maybe a little more challenging than that!)

“PK is the best in North Texas”
Reviewed 19 April 2014

PK lake is deep and clear. In the summer the water temperature stays comfortable and cool much longer than other shallow lakes in Texas. PK has a number of great communities to visit on the SE side is the Cliffs, the Peninsula in the middle with lots of swimming, parks and boating and the North side with more year around homes. PK is a great stress reliever for anyone from DFW who just wants to get away from the city and enjoy the outdoors.

“Best lake in Texas”
Reviewed 18 February 2014 via mobile

PK is HUGE..by that I mean "long". We stay here some in the summer and love it. DFW is not too far a way so making a Ranger game is always possible. Water level is way down but what lake in Texas isn't these days. Great for boating and fishing.

Reviewed 12 December 2013

Scenic and fun place to boat. Great water and long lake for hours of boating fun. Rock cliffs add to sight seeing.

“Get out of the Rat Race”
Reviewed 14 October 2013

If you want to get away from the rat race of the big city of Dallas come here;
I was raised here over 50yrs ago & I love coming back & reconnecting to the wide open sky's where you can look up & actually see the stars that you forgot were up there.I love the fresh clean air I can breath here.Possum Kingdom has some of the most breath taking sunsets that you will not ever see any where else. You will also love the west Texas hospitality.
