Calling the city of Arlington home means easy access to some of the most stunning outdoor areas for some fresh air, perfect study spots, and changing up the workout routine from indoor equipment to nature’s best. Living at 101 Center means there are plenty of opportunities to explore the best biking, hiking, and running trails in Arlington, Texas.
River Legacy Park
A mix of wilderness and nature spanning 1,300 acres, River Legacy Park is located just north of Arlington. With eight miles of paved walking and running trails, the park also features a 10-mile well-maintained off-road bike path, making the park a popular destination for exercisers of all kinds. Winding along the Trinity River, there is an extremely beautiful and interesting environment to take in no matter how you’re using the trail.
Cedar Ridge Preserve
Another great option for those looking to enjoy some wilderness as their scenery is the Cedar Ridge Preserve. This extensive trail system offers plenty of options ranging in difficulty and length, meaning that hikers and runners of all abilities can likely find something here that will satisfy them. Unfortunately for the cycling or mountain biking enthusiasts reading this, the trails in this preserve are pedestrian traffic only.
For a more suburban park and recreation experience, Cravens Park offers a tamer (but equally or more pleasant) experience to engage in some outdoor exercise. There are several other amenities here, such as basketball courts, pavilions, and open fields, that make it a popular local hub of outdoor recreation for all kinds of people. As a walker, runner, or biker, the chief attraction here would be the paved trail that runs through the park. While it might not be the most adventurous alternative on the list, it’s a convenient spot to get outside and enjoy some fresh air without having to work too hard.
Fish Creek Linear Park
Similar to Cravens Park, the main attraction to this recreation area is a flat, well-paved trail that runs alongside Fish Creek. Not only are hikers, runners, and bikers popular staples of the environment here, but the trail’s flat grade and smooth pave job make it a wonderful place for rollerblading enthusiasts as well. Whatever your intent is, Fish Creek Linear Park is a great place to bask in some fresh air.
Tails ’N Trails Dog Park
Tails ’N Trails Dog Park is a place where lots of dogs (and their owners) gather to play, run, and exercise together. If you’re a pet owner and love to get in an outdoor workout, could there not be a more fun way to exercise? Grab your own furry friend, call a friend who has one, or just show up solo and soak up as much pet-friendly love and affection as you possibly can while you’re catching your breath or taking a break from your walk or jog.
