No one can convince your pup that an outing each day is not the perfect thing to do with their forever friend. If you are looking for a puptastic place to go, head to White Rock Creek Trail in the city of Dallas, Texas.
You will find the trailhead for this hike in the northeastern portion of the city. Park your car in the parking lot of Valley View Park located at the beginning of the trail to the north, or at parking at the southern-most part of the trail, at White Rock Lake Park on E. Mockingbird Lane.
This perfect hike will take you 7.6 miles through the city, along White Rock Creek, through beautiful neighborhoods, and along the White Rock Creek Greenbelt system the city has set up for residents and visitors’ enjoyment. This trail even winds through 10 other city parks, including Anderson-Bonner Park and Harry S. Moss Park. You won’t run out of hiking opportunities either. The Cottonwood Creek Trail also connects to this trail about a third of the way from your starting point, and then heads northeast. Beautiful scenery and an easy, level path allow you and your pawtastic pup to enjoy trees, shade, open areas and the sound of water rushing from the creek.
There are restrooms within a few of the parks along the way, as well as drinking fountains, but it is best to bring your own if you stick to the trail itself. Offer your pup several rest breaks, especially during the many warm-weather days. Please keep your fur-ever friend on leash throughout your hike, and be sure to take clean up mitts to keep this trail always pup-friendly.
White Rock Creek Trail in Dallas is a great place to take a short stroll or a long hike with your best pup by your side!
