Spring is officially here, bringing warm days, cool breezes, and blooming flowers. The many scenic trails near Sachse make it easy to get back in touch with nature to enjoy the fresh air and sun.

Here are our top 4 favorite walking or hiking trails near Sachse:

1. Spring Creek Preserve Trail

The Spring Creek Trail is located in a forest preserve in nearby Garland. Alltrails.com states that it is an "easy" route appropriate for all skill levels. According to Garland Parks and Recreation, this trail extends about one mile. The route begins on a wide concrete path and ends as a natural path. You will spot a few tables on the way, offering the perfect spot to plop down for a picnic mid-hike.

2. Breckenridge Park Trail

Beautiful wildflowers can be seen along the paved Breckenridge Park Trail located near Richardson. Dogs are welcome on this "easy" 4.3-mile loop trail. If you enter this park from Brand Road, you will see a pavilion with picnic areas, a playground, and restrooms. Families can be seen fishing at the nearby water. This trail is perfect for walkers, runners, and cyclists alike.

3. Rowlett Nature Trail

The Rowlett Nature Trail begins near Lake Ray Hubbard in Rowlett, not far from Sachse. This 6-mile path consists of hard-packed stone and is suitable for beginning hikers and road bikers. You can rest at the picnic tables under the gazebo. Be sure to bring bread so you can feed the ducks at the lake!

4. Lake Lavon Via Trinity Trail

Be sure to bring your binoculars to view the wildlife while hiking the Trinity Trail at Lake Lavon near Wylie. This "peaceful" 9.6-mile dirt trail is for "moderate" hikers, according to alltrails.com. Feel free to bring Fido, as long as he is on a leash. Gorgeous views of the lake await you. Don't forget to pack plenty of water and sunscreen for this long hike.
