We walk there a lot. It's 2 miles around one way on the big trail. There's a long natural trail round the back 40. Lots of wildlife, lots of shade on the trails, vistas about as pretty as it gets for how flat it is (Plano means, and definitely is, pretty flat). About as hilly as it gets around here... More

We have lived here in Frisco for 3 years and decided to find a park to walk in July that had shade. We enjoyed it! I felt like I was somewhere else in hills at a forest.

Close to my house, I can't believe how lucky I am to be nearby. I'm there 3-4 times a week to walk and enjoy nature. Except the bikers who go way too fast and don't obey the rules of the road, it's a peaceful place. (I was run over once...broken ankle and sutured knee.). Great park!

Went once with my daughter's girl scout troop (and our dog) - we walked the short loop and it was great. Lots of shade, which is necessary in the summer. I would love to go again with our bikes.

Arbor Hills is a great place to go with the family, dogs, a mountain bike, or just your running shoes! I usually go there to run the concrete path and occasionally off road on the trails. The concrete long loop is approximately 2.25 miles, with the short loop being 1.25 miles. It's nice during the summer because you can find... More

If you want to ride your bike hit the mountain bike trail. It's a little too crowded on the weekends if you want to ride your road/cruiser on the walkways. Get there early and enjoy the quiet, you might run into some wildlife as well.

Sunday was my first time for Arbor Hills Nature Preserve. I wanted to walk & listen to my music on IPOD; and just get away from the busy status of vacation week. I had Sunday & Memorial Day left of my vacation; and I was determined, that they were going to be stress-free, if possible. Walking Arbor Hills Nature trail... More

Enjoyed visiting the preserve daily during my visit to Texas. It's a great place to walk the dogs and a nice place for the family to get together.

That the Arbor preserve is a respite in the middle of a busy suburb. We stumbled up on it accidentally about 5-6 months ago, did a u-turn and went exploring. Now my husband and I are regulars on weekend mornings, sometimes with or without the dog. We enjoy the paved walking trails, with benches throughout to enjoy a peaceful moment.... More

This has become our go-to place for years especially in the spring and fall. The teens do the bike trail while we walk the path (there is incline) and sometimes we even wander off the path to get closer to the stream to sit and relax. During the week it's less busy and more relaxing to get some deep thinking... More
