The Trail de Paris runs for 6 miles from the town of Paris, Texas, east into the countryside. The paved route follows a lovely corridor of shade trees, crossing bridges as it heads along the abandoned railroad right-of-way. The trail includes benches, viewing platforms, mile markers and interpretive signs. It offers access to a butterfly garden, junior college, neighborhoods, parks and more.
The trail is part of the growing Northeast Texas Trail, which will stretch 132 miles across seven counties from New Boston to Farmersville.

Lovin' the Trail de Paris!
It is so nice to have a scenic safe place to go and walk, run, or ride bikes with the family. Thanks to all who have donated and worked to provide it for our community.
We Love It
"We love our trail, the next step is to make it longer. The existing trail has a beautiful canopy of trees and several old bridges that lend much character to the trail. It is a huge asset to our community. Come and try it out. "
