While this is a most beautiful, clean, and equipped park I have to say I prefer Oak Point for getting out in nature to do what I love best: Cycling. Arbor Hills is almost always packed with stroller toting mommies with kids running all over the trail and groups of middle aged housewives striding four abreast across both lanes. There... More

A beautiful area for a walk, run or cycle - though it's in the city, once you get among the trees the area is nice and quiet. Multiple trails to choose and the view from the hill is beautiful at sunset.

Arbor Hills Nature Preserve provides residents of Plano and the surrounding communities with a close, safe and diverse outdoor experience. For the mountain biker, there is a semi-challenging mountain bike course; great for beginning riders and those just wanting an easy training day. For those wanting a simple workout, there is a paved walk, run, stroll path that has an... More

So you have to keep in mind that this park is pretty much in the city so even though you can hear some traffic in some areas, it is still a great get away. We recomend off hours and days for true relaxation, but its still a great place anytime if you just want to get in to nature but... More

I'm an avid runner so trails are something I frequent, and I can honestly say I've never been on a trail with so much dog poop! The trail itself is very nice, high elevation with scenic overlooks. Please dog owners, be responsible and pick up after your dog so everyone can enjoy these beautiful trails.

Love getting lost in this preserve. Yes, it is that big. Good for bikes, tricycles, wagons, strollers, hikers, dogs, even handicapped. Nice creek runs through it. Elevation with views. Playground. Finally expanded parking.

Our favorite place for a sunset, dog walk, workout or family hike! Even when the parking lot is packed you won't feel the crowd! Best part is feeling a million miles from the city, right in our back yard! Concrete trails or through the woods, you will find your peaceful escape!

Great spot for a brisk walk or jog, or a bike ride. Well marked trails, bathroom facilities, just outside of the Legacy area in Plano.
