The Bluebonnet trail is the longest trail of the city of Plano, TX Park and Trail System. Up to 8.3 miles one way. If you want to see the bluebonnets on the trail, they are usually there from Mid-March to Mid April every year. The trail runs parallel to Spring Creek Parkway for the most part and is fully paved. The trail is often used by walkers, joggers, and some cyclists. Its has many nice features along the trail. The trail begins at the East side of Shady Brook trail (Midway & Spring Creek). At Baywater, the trail stops but starts again if you continue to Preston and turn left and go half a block North to Commonsgate Dr. (The best part of the trail starts here) From there, it runs through Archgate Park, Carpenter Park, Lone Star Park, Jack Carter Park and popular dog park, Blue Ridge Park, Wagon Wheel Park, High Point Park, and ends when you get to the Oak Point Park and Nature Preserve.Show more
