The BJNC Organization’s “Take A Hike” campaign encourages one and all, young and old, to come out to visit the Nature Center and Preserve and take a hike! Walk along the Preserve’s Bluebird Trail and Whitetail Deer Loop or use the Nature Center as the entry point to miles of the Walnut Grove National Recreation Trail (U.S. Army Corps of Engineer land) which surrounds the Preserve.

The BJNCO encourages all hikers to wear appropriate clothing and shoes for the season and to always bring water. The Walnut Grove National Recreation Trail is also accessible at several points along White Chapel Boulevard and near the end of E. Bob Jones Road.

Preserve Trails

Hike the Bluebird Trail - approximately .8 of a mile - or the smaller loop of the White-tail Deer Trail on the Preserve. The trails are mowed grass paths. Dogs and horses are not permitted on the Preserve Trails.

Walnut Grove National Recreation Trail

The Walnut Grove National Recreation Trail for both equestrians and hikers winds its way through forest and pocket prairies and to the water’s edge of Lake Grapevine.

The Walnut Grove National Recreational Trail and Bob Jones Park are listed on the Texas Parks and Wildlife Prairie and Pineywoods Trail, Colleyville Loop.
