Walking Trails @ Bob Jones Park

From SH 114 and N. White Chapel Blvd. in Southlake, head north on N. White Chapel Blvd. for 1.8 miles to the pipe-rail fence entry for Bob Jones Park, which is on the right (east) side. Enter the parking area and take the loop road east until it ends in the small parking area. Walnut Grove and Cross Timbers habitat lies all in and around Kirkwood Branch to the south/southwest and north/northeast.

This 250-acre park near Lake Grapevine includes post and blackjack oak, eastern red cedar, American and cedar elm and honey mesquite vegetation. The park offers a number of trails, both paved and unpaved, for hiking, and horseback riding. Wildflowers attract several varieties of butterflies, including Giant Swallowtails, Eastern Tiger Swallowtails and a diversity of yellows, sulphurs, fritillaries and hairstreaks.

The open woodlands provide habitat for resident birds such as Northern Cardinals, Carolina Chickadees, Tufted Titmice, Red-bellied Woodpeckers, American Robins, Western and Eastern Kingbirds, Scissor-tailed Flycatchers, Acadian Flycatchers, Downy Woodpeckers, Yellow-throated Warblers, Indigo and Painted Buntings and many others.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
