Keller is known for its small-town charm, but it also packs more than 26 miles of hiking and biking trails. With 300 acres of developed parkland, there’s lots to see! Here are a few beginner-friendly places to plan a hike nearby and enjoy the outdoors this summer.
Bear Creek Park
Bear Creek Park is a 44-acre green space with playgrounds, pavilions, fire pits, sports areas, and a wildscape garden and pond. It’s a great place to enter the Apache Trail – also known as the Big Bear Creek Greenbelt – that bisects Keller. The constructed trail spans 5.4 miles and takes you across town.
Chase Oaks Activity Node Park
Another great hike is off Chase Oaks Drive. The park itself is a great picnic area and playground, but it also offers access to the Little Bear Creek Linear Park. The trailhead is a little further up, but if you need a shorter distance you can start at the Chase Oaks Activity Node. The trail is 2.5 miles long in total, and most of it is shaded by trees, so you can stay out of the sun.
The Parks at Town Center
The Parks at Town Center spans 102 acres with a 1.1-mile hiking trail, two lakes, and a butterfly garden. Make sure to come back during the spring – the wildflower meadows are a sight to see when in bloom.
