For a fun afternoon outdoors, lace up your hiking boots and explore DFW’s best hiking trails. You’ll enjoy the beautiful scenery and may even spot a wild animal or two. The hikes near our Dallas apartments include:

Katy Trail

One of the area’s most well-known paths, the Katy Trail follows an abandoned railroad line. While the trail began in 2000, the land’s history goes back over a century. The Union Pacific Railroad constructed the Missouri-Texas-Kansas Railroad and established the network in 1865. The route was commonly known as K-T before becoming known as Katy. The railroad donated the line to the city in 1993. Today, the trail spans 3.5 miles and is open daily from 5:00 a.m. to midnight.

Oak Point Park & Nature Preserve Trails

Stretching over 800 acres, the Oak Point Park & Nature Preserve offers some of the prettiest views in the Metroplex. It features approximately eight miles of concrete trails and five miles of soft-surface paths. The preserve provides a natural getaway within an urban city. Hikers discover plants and animals native to North Texas and may spot everything from chirping birds to scenic views of Rowlett Creek.

Arbor Hills Nature Preserve Trails

Follow the winding paths through the Arbor Hills Nature Preserve. The preserve is the perfect place to photograph wildflowers and take in a brilliant sunset. The trails vary in distance. They welcome both beginners and seasoned hikers, and small hills may add to your workout. As hikers explore, they find creeks, towering trees, and an overlook offering spectacular views.

After venturing out on one of these hikes, order some of the tastiest pizza in Dallas to-go. You can enjoy a traditional pepperoni pie or sample one of the chef’s specialty creations.
