Owens Trail Description

The Owens Trail, located in the heart of Richardson (a northern suburb of Dallas), is comprised of two segments: a northern stretch through Lookout Park and a southern section that reaches Duck Creek Linear Park. The latter offers pleasant scenery, places to picnic, and a connection to the Duck Creek Trail for those who wish to extend their journey another mile. Lookout Park -- located within the Sherrill Park Golf Course -- offers athletic fields, a pavilion and restrooms.

Parking and Trail Access

A parking lot is available in Lookout Park (E. Lookout Dr. and Owens Blvd.), or, for those who wish to start at the southern segment, you can find parking at Yale Park (1841 Linda Lane) or Huffhines Park (1500 Apollo Road) not too far from the trail.

Owens Trail Reviews

I went on the Lookout trail this morning and it was lovely. It went to the Sherrill Hills Golf course and that confused me. I continued on the trail and crossed a lovely little bridge with flowing water. Then two guys on a golf cart told me I need to get off the trail because they dont aim. So I was confused as to whether I was on the trail or I was trespassing. Anyway on my way back, I saw the loveliest fish - a lovely pale yellow orange color placidly swimming along and swishing its tail, till my shadow disturbed it.
It was so beautiful it made up for the unpleasantness. On returning to Lookout park where the parking was, I saw a city employee emptying trash and asked him where the Spring Creek Nature Trail was since that is what I had been looking for. He said he did not know (sigh).
Anyway in an hour I completed the entire course. I wish the city had more signage to guide people. I hate stopping bikers or hikers and ask them questions since they always act like I am speaking Martian and dont want to be bothered.
