I really love to hike in this preserve park. You can forget that you are in a suburban concrete jungle. It has so many natural looks that I think it is my favorite single stop in this area. And you can get in a great walk!

My friends and I hike here a lot. Its beautiful, peaceful and adventurous. The trails are over up and down hills, rocks, trees and some creeks and streams. There is a paved trail too. Bathrooms are clean. There is a park and wifi area. Fun for family, friends and couples. Best way to get some great exercise.

From true wilderness to trails and bike paths, this Plano park has it all! The location surprises you that this gem has been hiding West of the tollway and is soo large!! Playdates to family picnics, it has grills and Pavillions, clean restrooms, water fountains, great playgrounds that are separated for age, so the Lil ones have their own area.

Whenever my husband and I want to get a quick/ cheat walk out, we come here. We usually do two circles at least. Nice biking trails.

I visit Arbor Hills frequently to run, walk and "hike". The paved paths are perfect for running or biking, and the miles of unpathed trails are peaceful and (usually) quiet. This is one of my favorite places to spend a sunny afternoon.

Pleasant scenes, free parking, and not too strenuous. One point less because the map wasn't easy to find and even if we find it, it isn't helpful. Neither are the sign posts inside the preserve. Best is to go when there are crowds, so that we don't get lost.

If you like to walk, as my wife and I do, it is difficult to find a good spot in Plano or Dallas. This is such a place. They have several trails that you can follow. It can get busy at weekends, but it is a good way to stretch your legs and see some nature.

We live in the mid-cities area, and found the nature preserve as a nice local activity during a spring break weekend. Anyone planning a staycation should add this to the list, as it is a nice respite from the hustle of the city. Our kids enjoyed the playground, and we saw lots of families and dogs before us as we...

I really like Arbor Hills Nature Preserve. It is a great place to exercise. The only thing I would recommend is to not go on the weekends from 10 to 4 pm. It gets super crowded! I like early or late walks/runs. It is a great place for solo, couple, or friend and family walks. Also , it is pet... More

This is got to be one of Plano's finest outdoor activities that is free. You can go here and picnic have a party or simply take the time to walk through the beautiful nature reserve. Get away from the hustle and bustle of all the building and construction and just get away from it all. I found this with my... More
