We stopped here for just a short stroll. Although the trails are marked as to their names, they are not marked as to how long they are or if they loop back or leave you at the end, just to retrace your steps.

Perfect for a nature walk, or a stroll in the woods......maybe not in the heat of the summer, but anytime thereafter.

Situated in the hubbub of Plano, this is our refuge from the hectic pace of the city. It has paved as well as unpaved trails, off-road bicycle trails, parks for children, and native plants and trees as well as a creek running through it. Love it.

Had a great 4 mile walk today! About 65% shade which helps on a sunny day. Bath rooms on site, a playground for the kids, and picnic area also.

Many moms, kids and runners etc stay on the paved areas. The total distance on the unpaved perimeter trail is about 3 miles, if you walk all the... More

This is an urban park. You will come across snakes, bobcats, hogs, deer, coyote and mountain lion at one time or another. Remember, they were here first and they have the right to be here too. The outer loop is my favorite. In the summer time be sure to use off on your legs to avoid chigger bites.

It's a glorious trail to walk to see beautiful nature and muddy non cement trails are more interesting too when you go over a branch bridge over a creek or river
