Oak Point Park & Nature Preserve Trail Description

The Oak Point Park & Nature Preserve Trail is a jewel in Plano's park system, offering more than 800 acres to explore and many recreational amenities, including a recreation center, amphitheater, a fishing pond, and zipline course.

A mix of both paved and soft-surface trails wind through the park. Its concrete pathway, which spans more than 8 miles, is especially scenic with views of Rowlett Creek. It also connects to the Bob Woodruff Park Trail on its southern end for a longer walk or ride. (Note that bikes are not allowed on the park's 5 miles of unpaved trail.)

Parking and Trail Access

Restrooms and large parking lots are available within Oak Point Park (5901 Los Rios Blvd., Plano).

Oak Point Park & Nature Preserve Trail Reviews

nice trail

Nice wide trail, not too crowded and a good mixture of hills and flat. You can make it as long or short as you want.

Great Trail

Lots of parking at the nature preserve, nice, clean restrooms, beautiful wooded boardwalk trails as well as paved. Connecting also to the Sante Fe and the Bob Woodruff trails. I never knew this trail existed! Great ride!!

Had great time with kids! They really got tired after months at home due to COVID19

Great trail! My kids had fun with their scooters and skate board. They saw baby turtles and dragon flies! Got lost for a short time (it was out first visit and we were unprepared for the trails). So I advice you to get prepared before diving into trails!

Oak Point Nature Preserve

This is a hidden gem right in the middle of Collin County. I have enjoyed this trail recently and plan to make it my primary destination as much as possible. Absolutely enjoy the trails and quiet nature of the park.

Beautiful Sites!

Rode this trail the other day on my Townie. The ride was fantastic. Wide sidewalks and beautiful scenery! Lots of trees and the creek plays a huge presence!

Very nice, wide trails with lots of scenery.

Very well maintained and wide trails that are away from traffic. The Bobcat Run "boardwalk" is especially nice and different. Many unpaved trails fork off from the mail paved trails for the off-roaders. Two ballooners took off from the adjacent Plano Balloon Festival area while I was there. Historical sites in the park, if you know where to look.

nice hiking trail

Quiet, away from roads, horses riding by. Great for a little self-reflecting!

Tons of trail options

Love this trail!! There's a paved trail that most people stay on and there are tons of small unpaved side trails that are really beautiful. Highly recommend this place.

Another excellent trail in Plano

This is one of my favorite trails, and with the tie in to Woodruff park trail, and the Santa Fe trail, you can go all over E. Plano, from the southern most end almost to Allen on the northern end. The drinking fountains are functional and output clean water. The large duck pond on the south part at Woodruff has restrooms, and there are restrooms on the northern end at Oak Point, where there is also a large pond with many types of wildlife. The trail is well maintained, clean, paved and scenic bridges crossing Rowlett creek in several places-care was taken in designing to keep the surrounding roadways from spoiling the peaceful atmosphere of the riding area. My only complaint is that I live too far from them to ride to them, and have to load up my bike in my truck and drive there-for now, until I get in better shape.

Urban meets rustic

A beautiful trail where a Texas ranch styled bridge leads to a historic pecan grove and then on to a creek where next a fallen tree serves as a bridge. One can choose the cement path or literally go off the beaten trail to rustic trails with punchy names like "Sandbar Scramble", "Stagecoach Trail" and "Creek Trail Cut-off". Bikers, walkers, dogs, horseback riders can all enjoy this trail.
