“An unexpected forest haven in the midst of a busy urban area, with tons of trees and wildlife, and plenty of fresh air.”— John Shuttlesworth
The trails are well defined and maintained by the city of Richardson which ensures that the area is clean and free of any debris. It passes over a small bridge, with several optional trails heading southward. As you meander down the easily traveled paths you are sure to hear plenty of birds, catch glimpses of squirrels scampering about, and may even spot one of the many snakes that inhabit this lovely nature preserve.
The trail then passes under N. Plano Road and terminates at Foxboro Park. This is an exceptional area to spend some time outdoors with nature in close proximity to the trappings of suburban life.
