  • It's a beautiful place to hike and bike right in the middle of Plano and The Colony. There are miles of paved trails, and even more miles of marked unpaved trails through a wooded area for some much needed shade in the Texas heat. The city also does a great job of maintaining it. But if you're visiting, do us all a favor and pick up your dog's poop. Be a responsible pet parent.
  • I only walked paved paths, and the changes in elevation and length of the path combined for good exercise. I captured a great view from a lookout and passed multiple fields of flowering plants. This preserve is beautiful and well maintained. I'd like to return to walk the nature paths sometime. Jogging or biking here are also good ideas for those that do either or both.
