Lot of others are enjoying the preserve because prime times can be a little crowded in the parking lot. We have not really had any issues on the... More

Arbor Hills Nature Preserve is a great suburban park. It has a 2+mile paved double loop trail and lots of non paved trails for hiking or biking.

The Arbor Hills Nature Preserve is a great place to have your child's birthday party, meet up with family and friends for a picnic, have a play date, and do a treasure/nature exploration! We've walked the trails, had fun at the play ground and even skipped rocks on the stream. It's so much fun!

Great for hiking walking and easy bike riding. A place to get out and be in a natural setting but you still in the city of Plano.

I love walking here. It's usually pretty busy all the time but it hardly feels that way no matter how many people are there. You don't feel like you're in the middle of a neighborhood at all.

My teenagers like to go here with friends to Eno. It's safe and a great place to literally hang out and enjoy the outdoors.

I've lived in Dallas my entire life, and I recently found out about this trail. You can stay on trail or go off trail.,it takes about an hour to go around the entire preserve on the off trail with hills etc. It doesn't feel like you are in the flat Dallas city at the preserve.
