What is there to do?

If you're ready for a nature filled family day out, and happen to be in Texas, head for Arbor Hills Nature Preserve!

This 200 acre park is perfect for the family, as it's filled with hiking and biking trails, park space and a playground! There is a ton of natural beauty fo you to enjoy.

If you have active kids, the trail are perfect as there are miles of hiking, walking and jogging trails, so you can take it all at your own pace.

With 3 miles of paved trails, 3 miles of unpaved trails perfect for walking, and nearly 3 miles of off-road cycling trails, there is certainly enough to keep you entertained and moving!

Arbor Hills Nature Preserve is also a great place to get out and enjoy orienteering - a fun adventure for the whole family.

For those little ones, there is plenty of park space to run around in, play, be creative and hide. There is also a fun playground for them to climb around on too!

Arbor Hills Nature Preserve is also a great way for kids to learn about the plants and wildlife, as well as conservation. There are a number of different habitats within the preserve, including upland forest, Riparian forest with shrubs and vines, and blackland prairies. The wildlife you might be spotting are always so much fun when you finally do! From owls to egrets and even those noisy woodpeckers...if you're lucky you might see a bobcat or coyote in the Upland Forest, although these are rarely seen.

It's worth noting that wildlife can be affected by humans 200ft either side of the trail, so be careful when you're there!

A wonderful and nature inspired family day out in Texas! Don't forget your hats...it can get warm in those summer months! (And winter for that matter!)
