I don’t know about you, but Chris and I LOVE to go hiking (or more often around here walking around city parks) – Abbie does too!! We’re always looking for fun places to go and experience – from easy to difficult trails, so we thought we’d share with you our ‘must go do’ list! In this blog, you’ll find trails to Hike with your Dog near Savannah Texas! Enjoy! 🙂
Before we get started, I want to share – we use a fantastic app called AllTrails most often when we go hiking. It helps you find trails, tells you how long they are and if they are easy, intermediate or hard. Go ahead and give it a download if you don’t have it already!
Hike with your Dog at Ray Roberts State Park
I grew up going to Ray Roberts State Park near by in Pilot Point, its my absolute favorite camping, fishing and hiking place! With a variety of trails to hike – both short and long, easy and difficult! There are three main trail systems plus a 20-Mile Greenbelt Corridor hike – I recommend starting out at Isle du Bois Unit (its the closest to us here in Savannah). Check out their trail mails online here.
Little Elm Trails
Little Elm has made massive strides in the last few years to beef up their walking and trail systems. We are working our way through them. We love that they are convenient to get to, well kept up and short and sweet for days we just want to get out and move (or after lots of rain).
- Cottonwood Nature Trail (1.5 miles, wood chip trail)
- Harts Branch Trail (approx 1.5 miles, concrete trail)
- Johnny Broyles Nature Trail (1 mile trail, concrete and crushed granite)
- Lakefront Trail (approx 4 miles, crushed granite trail)
- McCord Park (1+ mile walk and bike trail, concrete)
- home to Wood Family Dog Park!
Frisco has a huge amount of hiking and walking trails throughout the city both in public parks and in public neighborhoods. We love this PDF that includes a colored map of all of their biking and hiking trail systems. Probably best viewed on a computer and you’ll definitely need to zoom in. This page also lists many of their trails ranging from 1/2 a mile to over two miles.
Our current favorite place to go walk with Abbie in Frisco is Frisco Commons Park and walking paths!
Hike with Your Dog in The Colony
The Colony has taken its “City by the Lake” status and created some beautiful trails with it. Their focus has been on creating an environmentally sensitive trail system that celebrates nature while creating the least disturbance as possible.
- The Colony Shoreline Trail (3.5 miles)
- The Tribute Shoreline Nature Trail (2.5 miles)
You can also check out the Hidden Cove Nature Trail (2+ miles), but it requires an entrance fee as it is privately owned.
Check out all The Colony walking and trail opportunities here.
Lewisville Lake Environmental Learning Area
I can’t wait to check out this trail! Its only open part of the year, so be sure to check out their dates opening and hours of operation. The LLELA Trail Sysems touts a hiker, biker and wildlife-watcher paradise with over seven miles of trails! Be sure to check it out!
Arbor Hills Nature Preserve
I would be remiss if I didn’t mention Arbor Hills Nature Preserve. Its a little bit of a drive from Savannah, but allows you to get lost in nature smack dab in the middle of the city. You can find a great concrete path and off-road natural surface trails in this beautiful park! Get all the details on Arbor Hills here.
There are so many other great hiking and walking trails to take your dogs to. These are just some of the closest places you should check out first! Do you enjoy walking and hiking with your pup?
Always be sure to bring fresh water for you both (we bring a collapsible bowl), a first aid kit, sunscreen (for your pup too if they have short, light colored fur), bug spray (pet safe), a leash and of course – poop bags!
Do let us know if you check any of these out with your pups…we would love to see the photos! Until next time, we do hope you will go hike with your dog near Savannah Texas!
