It’s October in Texas, and the days have gone from blistering hot to nice and mild. There’s nothing like getting outside and enjoying a beautiful Texas day! In Wylie, we have access to some hiking trails and also some nice paved walking paths that are perfect for enjoying these gorgeous fall days. Here are five places where you can find walking trails in Wylie, Texas.

East Fork Trail Head – Trinity Trail

The Trinity Trail North at the East Fork Trail Head is an 8-mile hike that will take you through nature and give you some beautiful views of Lake Lavon. This trail is popular with walkers and horseback riders. It takes most people less than three hours to complete this out-and-back trail. The nice thing about it is that you can turn back at any time if you need to shorten it!

It is located at 1815 Skyview Dr, Wylie, TX 75098, but sometimes people have a tricky time finding the trail head or the best place to start. I have found these directions to be very helpful.

Note about this trail: it gets very, very muddy if it rains. Give it a week or so to dry up before you attempt it after a big storm (or, wear your rain boots).

Muddy Creek Preserve

The Muddy Creek Preserve trail is short, sweet, and paved. It’s about half a mile long, which makes it very doable. If you want a longer walk, you can just walk the trail several times. It’s a pretty and peaceful location with lots of tree coverage, making it a nice place to walk in the summer.

The Muddy Creek Preserve Trail is located at 5351 Pleasant Valley Rd, Wylie, TX 75098.

Wylie Municipal Complex Trail

The Wylie Municipal Complex trails are centrally located, easy to get to, and will give you about three miles of trails to walk. You can see the trail map here. Most of the trails here are paved, making it nice if you’re pushing a stroller or riding a bike.

Because they’re right next to the library, it’s easy to plan a morning here with the kids. Library first, then burn off some energy on the trails!

There is plenty of parking and you can get here easily and quickly from pretty much anywhere in Wylie.

Kreymer Estates Trail

The Kreymer Estates Trail is another nice trail that is paved and has a lot of tree coverage. There is also workout equipment along the trail if you want to throw some pull-ups into the mix! This trail is a little less than two miles long and is an easy walk.

Founders Park Trail

Founds Park in Wylie has a paved walking trail that is a little over a mile long. This trail does not have much tree coverage, but it’s a popular place to walk or jog on nice weather days! There is also a popular playground at Founders (commonly called The Pirate Park by the 5&under crowd). As long as you aren’t there on a game day (soccer/football/softball), you’ll have plenty of parking options. Parking is tight on Saturday mornings during soccer season!

If you’re looking to get outside and enjoy the outdoors, you can do so right here in Wylie! With several nice trails available, you won’t have to go far to find somewhere to walk.
