Tyler Legacy Trails Description

The first phase of Tyler's Legacy Trails consists of 4.2 miles of 10-foot-wide concrete trails with portions running on the eastern and western sides of Old Jacksonville Highway.

The eastern segment begins on Old Jacksonville Highway, just south of Three Lakes Parkway. It travels south along the highway, and then east along Dueling Oaks Drive, before pivoting south until it reaches Cumberland Road. 

The western segment is longer and sits in the right-of-way of the former St. Louis Southwestern Railroad, commonly known as the "Cotton Belt Route" or just "Cotton Belt". The corridor sat abandoned for years until plans were made to convert it into a hike-and-bike trail as part of the Legacy Trails. This segment begins on Three Lakes Parkway, just west of Old Jacksonville Highway, and heads south on the old railbed to a point just north of Saline Creek Road (FM 2813) in the neighboring city of Gresham. 

The trails are concrete and suitable for walkers as well as cyclists. Residents can use the trail to run errands or to simply get out into nature. 

A second phase is planned, where the trail will be extended north to Grande Boulevard. 

Parking and Trail Access

The trailhead is on the southwest corner of Three Lakes Pkwy and Old Jacksonville Hwy, just south of the FRESH market. It is only accessible on Three Lakes Parkway at the light at Old Jacksonville Hwy heading east. There is another parking lot at the corner of Crosslake Blvd and Mahar Rd.( County Road 164), 0.25-mile south from the Three Lake Pkwy trailhead.
