Located only 10 miles southwest of downtown Dallas, this trail feels worlds away as it winds through the westernmost vestiges of Blackland Prairie on the way to Joe Pool Lake. While it can be difficult to follow in places where grasses can overtake the trail, the payoff is a nice overlook of the lake before heading back to the trailhead. The nearby Penn Farm Agricultural History Center provides a hands-on history lesson for children.
