Length: 2.8 mi • Est. 1 h 10 m
The 0.9-mile Brookhaven Trail not only connects with Brookhaven College, but it also connects with the Addison Trail to create a much longer 4.6-mile trail that extends from Valley View Lane to Arapaho. In so doing, people can reach the restaurants on Beltline Road, attend class at Brookhaven, enjoy the views in Vitruvian Park, or simply have some fun or get some exercise. Located in both Farmers Branch and Addison, the Brookhaven Trail was made possible by the County and the North Central Texas Council of Governments who provided funding and by Brookhaven College who provided the land for the trail.Show more

This trail was originally just a neighborhood path, but has since been expanded. Because of its width, the original portion of the trail from about Beltway Drive to Brookwood is better for walkers and runners. The newer portions to Vitruvian Park, Arapaho Road, and Brookhaven College are wider and better for cyclists.Show more

Preston Ridge Trail has magically transformed the Oncor-provided electrical right-of-way into a widely-used and nicely-landscaped trail corridor. Beginning where Hillcrest and George Bush Freeway intersect (which is also the boundary between Dallas and Plano), the twelve-foot trail extends south-ward along Meandering Way to Beltline Road where it travels briefly to the east before resuming its southern path and ending near Spring Valley Road (new eight-foot-wide sidewalks built by the City of Richardson along Coit Road at Haymeadow and Spring Valley now provide an almost seamless connection between this trail and the Cottonwood Trail). Funded by Dallas County and the City of Dallas, Preston Ridge connects with numerous schools and parks and includes an east-west extension that begins at Arbor Oaks and ends at Davenport. It has also been the beneficiary of tremendous community support which has lead to the planting of over 1000 shrubs, bushes, and trees and the construction of rest areas and entrance features. Preston Ridge establishes a key component in the County trail system so that it is now possible to travel from the County's northern border to the edge of downtown Dallas without a car, and it clearly illustrates what can happen when everyone works together.Show more
#4 - Addison 16-Mile Cycling Route
Addison Circle Park

Length: 16.4 mi
Starting at Addison Circle, this is a relatively safe road bike trail that gets the cyclist as free from traffic as one can in Addison. If you are tired of meandering walking paths, this may be a good option to get some miles in while avoiding the major thru-ways. All roads are wider than the average two-way road except those that go thru neighborhoods...which are safer anyway.Show more
