I like that it's large and almost untouched by man. It has tons of trees, cliffs, streams and winding trails. I actually got a lost out there for 4 hours with my husband, so make sure you take a trail map. Many of the trails in the deep woods are unmarked. So fun!

Arbor hills is an excellent nature park for a quick hike and "get out of the city" trip. The park offers plenty off trail paths trails to adventure! My puppy and I love the fresh air and scenery here!

Went there yesterday, Sunday evening, with my grandson. Rode his bike around the trail. Can absolutely recommend for women alone. Busy trail, lots of people around and women walking/running alone. Great lane etiquette. I'll definitely be back.

One of the best trails in the area.

Clean, lots of trails and shade in Texas!

Wonderful mountain biking trail for any skill level in my opinion. Whether you are early in your mountain biking journey looking to increase your technical skills and bike control, or a veteran that wants to session technical sections over and over until you get it perfect, this trails has it. I enjoyed the ability to ride it for the first time while pushing each corner. Definitely keeps you out of the saddle and exercising the skills to look up and see what’s coming around the bend. Loved the constant twist and turns. Definitely will be adding this into the regular rotation of rides in North DFW

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

Wonderful paved walking path with numerous off road trails crisscrossing the area. Biking on the paved path or on the dedicated off road biking trail only. Very popular destination.

A regular spot for me and. My family! Offers a good range of walking/hiking and biking trails.

Just two miles away from Flatiron District, Arbor Hills has both concrete and dirt trails. The outer loop trail is a good dirt trail to practice trail running, and is 2.5 miles long, providing a nice five mile trail run or hike.

Great shaded trails. Excellent for summer.

I live in Plano. It is the best park in the area, although Oak Point is more wild, Arbor Hills offers some fantastic family friendly trails. Good luck finding peace and quiet here because it is extremely crowded.

Playground is great for kids (2-12)

Went with my husband and daughter. Our 2 year old loved the playground, which was conveniently located right across from the restrooms. So grateful to have found this place on a hot summer day. There are a lot of non-paved trails that are great for biking and running but the main trail was paved and stroller/wheelchair friendly. This place kept us in a comfortable and welcomed mood. We usually don’t stay at parks for more than an hour since our daughter gets fussy easily and the heat usually kind of chases us away. Luckily, with all the cool shade from all the beautiful trees and the calm streams, we were comfortable enough to walk around for about an hour and a half. It was peaceful and I think it even makes people a lot more friendly.

Come here with the pups at least 3-4 times a week, before getting there they are already crying with excitement... needless to say they love it!

Too many people on the concrete trails walking if the off road bike trails are closed!

Was fun. You can make this your own thing. Nice concrete paths and plenty of dirt paths.

Sidewalks have a few places to watch for cracks if you are riding skates or a board. Side walks are small. Water is available. Pets are around and parking is plentiful. There is shade.

Sidewalk is huge. The area is flat and there are only two big hills. Wind is pretty rough in the winter.

Loved it!

Varied landscape through the park and a choice of concrete trail when it's just rained or dirt paths when the weather is good. You don't really have to know where you're going when you go down the natural trails as you will eventually find your way to the big concrete trail.

No shade, but connects to other trails

This is super easy and not moderate at all! Love it!

Great little treasure for Plano. Shaded, very family oriented, and pets. Go Ape is located back in here so you can watch participants. Plenty of little trails tucked away from the sun. And best of all, NO CONCRETE.

Good for your first hike. Mostly concrete trail though part of trail is dirt path. The dirt path becomes muddy when it rains on the day before

Great location, easy to get to from many cities. Beautiful trails, lake and river.

Busy on weekends, but great during the week

Love it! My dog loves the trails.

perfect to take a long walk with the dogs and "get lost".

Was really nice. First one we’ve done. Pulled in and parking lot was full, so we were worried. But, found space to ourselves. Nice to have option of dirt trails and paved. Spent 2.5 hours there finding plenty to do.
