Dallas-Fort Worth

When it comes to long-distance travel, airplanes have replaced trains in convenience and popularity. Fortunately, many of the former train routes have been repurposed as these great hiking and biking rail trails around the DFW, and our real estate agents love to explore them. Take in the beautiful Texas scenery when you plan a hike on these Dallas-Fort Worth rail trails.

  • Katy Trail
    While the Katy Trail spans just 3.5 miles near Dallas homes for sale, its beauty and proximity draws more than 1.5 million visits each year. Established in 2000, the trail traces the line once used by the Missouri-Kansas-Texas Railroad, commonly referred to as the K-T. More than 125 acres of local parks can be accessed using the pet-friendly trail, which is also the site of an annual 5K race. The Katy Trail Art initiative recently completed its first installation, a series of five sculptures suspended from trees. Hours are 5 a.m. - midnight daily.

  • Santa Fe Trail
    Echoes of the Wild West past of Texas can be heard in the name of the Santa Fe Trail. The 4.3-mile route uses a corridor once belonging to the railroad of the same name. Bring Fido along to catch waterfront views of White Rock Lake at one end, with the vibrant neighborhoods of Deep Ellum and Fair Park at the other end. The Santa Fe also makes up part of the route for the Dallas Marathon, regarded as one of the top long-distance races in the country. Friends of Santa Fe Trail is a non-profit group that supports the trail through fundraising, enhancements, and maintenance. 

  • Chaparral Rail Trail
    History is embedded in the 35-mile span of the Chaparral Rail Trail. Starting in the quaintly-named town of Farmersville, the trailhead is named for Audie Murphy, the iconic WWII hero who once made his home here. Nearby is the Historic Onion Shed, a restored building dating back to the 1930s. The path is a mix of pavement and gravel, and the trail is a favorite spot for geocaching. Outside the city, there are many stretches of undeveloped land, creating a lovely background that makes this trail a favorite. 

  • A-train Rail Trail
    In a twist on rail trails, rails-with-trails are active railroad corridors with adjacent paths for hiking and biking. The 19-mile A-train Rail Trail connects the Dallas suburbs of Denton and Lewisville with a commuter line as well as a multipurpose path for non-motorized travel. Spend a day with the family hiking the trail and visiting Lewisville's Railroad Park, which includes three man-made lakes, an off-leash dog park, and outdoor fitness equipment.

History of the Dallas Chocolate Festival

You may be a chocolate lover—but how much do you actually know about the chocolate-making process? founder Sander Wolf believes that the process of creating chocolate from bean to bar is an exciting journey that all chocolate lovers should learn about. In 2009, Wolf created his website in hopes to educate the masses about local and global chocolate news and history. Instead of simply telling the residents of Dallas about chocolate, he wanted to give them the opportunity to taste unique flavors through an engaging experience that celebrates this tasty treat. What began as a small event featuring only two bean-to-bar chocolate producers turned into one of the can't-miss annual events of the Dallas food scene. The Dallas Chocolate Festival became the website's signature event that draws chocolate lovers and makers from around the world to the Dallas area every autumn.
