Hiking with buffalo? The herd here is fenced off, but getting an occasional glimpse of these iconic creatures of the American West adds allure and a photo op to this trail. With more than 3,600 acres of forests, prairies, and wetlands, the Fort Worth Nature Center is one of the largest city-owned nature centers in the United States. Thankfully all that space and the park’s entrance fee, keep it relatively sparsely populated much of the time. Even on busy weekends, only one or two hikers may be spotted along this 1.8-mile trail by the shores of the West Fork of the Trinity River and by a forested river bottom.
