Hitting the Trails, Dallas StyleBuckle Up, Buttercups: Exploring the Dallas Region's Best (Hidden) Trails
We’ll avoid all those clichés about those who wander not being lost and cut to the chase. Walkers, cyclists and runners venture into some fascinating places in the Dallas Region. These including former outlaw hideouts, abandoned rail beds and suburban oases. Of course, not all 442 miles of off-street paths in the region offer such adventures. So, the “Say Yes” crew has cobbled together a list of trails that effectively debunks the notion that the Dallas Region is four-wheel-centric.
In assembling our “Hidden Trails” list, we stuck with our methodology of avoiding well-known destinations (the nationally publicized Katy and White Rock Lake trails), and avoided the well-worn paths. Our entries are meant to transport both mind and body. (Disclaimers: Trails are open to both pedestrians and cyclists, unless otherwise noted. Also, be sure to check to make sure trails are open before heading out.)
