Nice Trail. There were a lot of people out but everyone kept their distance. This was my 1st time on the trail I need to learn how to get the best workout for me. Starting from parking lot entering the trail you’re going downhill but coming back 45 minutes later it’s uphill...yikes! So if anyone has any advice it’s most welcome.

Great trail for families or those looking to get outdoors. It was busy when I visited but there is the ability to go off trail some. Not as many options as other parks/preserves but still nice.

A short easy trail. It does not go to that deep into the woods. It is a good trail for children that do not do good on longer distance trails.

Nice pretty area with good amenities and access. Fun for all levels with plenty of great views / scenes. The paved trail did have more mud than I cared for (because of our recent rain).

Busy Urban park with lots of side trail. Good getaway from the traffic.

The trails can be confusing. But overall you aren’t going to need to be rescued via helicopter because it’s pretty hard to get lost. There are true rustic trails and then there is a paved trail.

Absolutely wonderful in the middle of Plano TX. Great diversity of flora and I enjoyed seeing the diversity of families out on the trail. Wish I had taken photos of all the different dogs I saw.

Just lovely cement paved trail area with lots of options for biking, running, hiking, and just plain walking. We walked this visit. This would be awesome to see at peak wildflower season (April). Go early, very popular spot in Plano. We came at 8:20am on Sunday, beautiful day, and parking lot was half full. Expect a lot of everything on the trails, including dogs. Watch where you step as dog owners are not always thoughtful to clean up the sideways after their dogs. Bring water. Area has a restroom, water fountain, and playground. Saw pictures being taken in the park. Not much birding, could hear them but only saw a cardinal and a squirrel. Overall nice place.

My husband and I love this trail!! It's a bit hilly at times which gives your legs a great workout! You feel the burn after
