Trinity Trail at Lake Lavon Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"A favorite with horseback riders as well as hikers, this scenic 3-mile loop winds by the shores of Lake Lavon through grassy areas and hardwood forests. It is also home to one of the state’s largest sycamore trees. The trails here are for horses first, so be sensitive to the needs of horseback riders, and be sure to watch your step while enjoying the great view of the lake and its adjacent grasslands and glens.
The park was funded through an initiative to preserve open spaces in rapidly developing Collin County and feels worlds away from the Metroplex. The bucolic drive to the park winds by ranches and farms, crossing over Pot Rack Creek. The 436-acre preserve includes a 52-acre piece of native Blackland Prairie. Before European settlers came to the central Plains and began tilling its soils for crops and using it for grazing lands, it was covered by the Blackland Prairie, which has a special mix of soils and mineral deposits that support a diverse array of plant and animal species."
