The Best Nature Trails in Dallas

Easy access to a wide range of natural spaces is one of the best amenities of living at Cirque. If you're in the mood to spend an afternoon exploring nature, these nearby nature trails in Dallas offer plenty of fun. Best of all, you don't have to drive more than 20 minutes from our apartments in Dallas, TX.

Oak Cliff Nature Preserve

Get immersed in nature at this stunning spot that's located only 18 minutes away. The Oak Cliff Nature Preserve Trail is within the Dallas city borders, but it feels like a true escape from the hustle and bustle. There are 120 acres of beautiful woods and meadows to explore, including 8 miles of dirt trails that are ideal for hiking and biking. The trail is also shady and mostly flat, which makes this lush area accessible for hikers at every level.

Santa Fe Trail

This spacious, 12-foot wide path is perfect for enjoying a long walk or run while surrounded by lush trees and wide meadows. You also get unique views of East Dallas, including interesting landmarks like an antique bridge. The Santa Fe trail is flat and paved with concrete, which makes it a smooth and easygoing bike ride. While the path itself is 5 miles long, you can easily extend the journey by connecting to adjoining trails.

Lakeside Park

This beloved urban park offers 14 beautifully-landscaped acres that meander alongside Turtle Creek. Lakeside Park is perfect for going for a run or leisurely stroll on its paved paths. Check out the whimsical stone statues of teddy bears and cross the bridge over the Turtle Creek Dam. Enjoy lush scenery that includes ducks swimming on the lake, small waterfalls, green lawns, flowers, and native trees.

From going for a long walk on these nature trails to taking some fun virtual dance classes, Dallas has many amenities for helping you stay active all year long. You can learn more about living at Cirque by contacting us.
