Sachse and the surrounding areas are home of some of the best biking trails available in the DFW metroplex. If you’ve got a hankering to get out on two wheels, there’s many options available regardless of your skill level. Here are a few of our favorites.
Chaparral Rail Trail
This 35-mile trail connects the four counties northeast of Dallas and is the westernmost leg of the Northeast Texas Trail system. Starting from Farmersville, the trail winds through Merit, Celeste, and Wolfe City, offering several opportunities to take a break and fuel up.
This 8-mile paved trail connects the University Trail to the Spring Creek and Central Trails. While not the most technically challenging, Renner Trail offers plenty of pretty scenery, winding through several parks and along Fox Creek. Ideal for an easy afternoon jaunt.
Oak Cliff Nature Preserve Trail
Rated as moderately difficult, this popular 6.5-mile loop features a wide variety of native Texas wildflowers and is accessible year round, but be aware that the trails criss-cross frequently and it’s easy to get lost if you aren’t careful. Perfect for those looking for a bit of a challenge!
White Rock Creek Trail
This gently sloping 8.5-mile trail meanders through several stands of old growth timber along White Rock Creek. Joggers, dog walkers, and commuters use this multi-use trail as well, and there are several turnouts to allow for breaks or to admire the scenery.
Rowlett Creek Preserve
This popular 1.6-mile track offers a number of different trails and options for mountain bikers of all skill levels. Riders have the opportunity to view many different kinds of flora and fauna at this park year-round.
