Because this residential area is so close to a number of hiking trails and state parks, you'll find many of the locals enjoying the great outdoors on the weekends and during summer vacation. A majority of Yarrabee's residents are young families which are mainly due to the proximity of schools. This area is a complex of suburban communities, but to the east, it's sprawling Texas landscape and country roads reaching out to smaller nearby towns.
A nearby elementary school means there are a number of four-way stops complete with pedestrian-friendly crosswalks. Most of the residents are young families so people are generally mindful of walkers.
Bordered by Onion Creek, Yarrabee has several cul-de-sacs, which means your walk could be interrupted by a dead end. The streets are, for the most part, on a grid system with a few sharp turns present. Be sure to walk toward traffic if you do find yourself without a sidewalk so that oncoming traffic can easily see you.
McKinney Falls State Park is just a short jaunt from the neighborhood which many of its residents take advantage of. This gorgeous protected land is rustic, yet well-maintained with some trails even having cement sidewalks for joggers and bikers to enjoy as well as dog-walkers.
There can be snakes on trails, so use caution when walking through tall brush and rocks where snakes like to sun bathe.
