DeKalb Trace offers a rustic route through northeastern Texas, not far from the state’s border with Arkansas. The nearly 28 mile rail-trail stretches from Annona, east through Avery and DeKalb, and on to New Boston. Along the way, it passes through beautiful woodlands and rural landscapes. (Note that the final 12 miles between DeKalb and New Boston is an unimproved surface trail).
The route forms the eastern leg of the larger Northeast Texas Trail, which, when complete, will be the state’s longest trail at more than 130 miles. Other segments of the system include: Reno Rail-Trail, Trail de Paris, and Chaparral Rail Trail.
On the trail’s eastern end in New Boston, parking is available at T & P Trailhead Park (Highway 82 and Ellis Street).
Centrally situated along the trail, parking is available at DeKalb Industrial Park (West Grizzly Drive near Highway 259).
