Pocket of nature in the burbs. Mountain bike trail and walking paths, but also dirt hiking trail that goes thru a variety of terrain and mild elevation change. Can get very crowded on weekends. Great place early in morning at enjoy sunrise.

As seniors in Plano, my husband and I have made it a priority to go walking and Arbor Hills Nature Preserve is one of our favorite spots. Anyone wanting to clear their mind and get some exercise should visit this area and enjoy!

Walking the pedestrian paths is great anytime of year. You can do several miles of walking which will give you great exposure to the park!

Nice place to go for a morning walk or run. It's a nice break from the endless housing developments and commercial blight.
