The Northeast Texas Trail: Farmersville

The Northeast Texas Trail is a 130 mile long trail that is under construction. https://netexastrail.org/ It stretches from Farmersville, near Dallas, to the New Boston, in the northeastern corner of Texas. It was once an abandoned rail line that is being turned into a trail. The trail committee wants the state to turn it into one long state park when it is finished.

I've traveled along the New Boston section, which only has a couple of miles finished. On Sunday, I went to the opposite end, Farmersville. Since it is going to eventually be a state park, I think it would be useful to document what is already there. I know I can't document the whole 130 miles, but I'd to eventually visit each stop along the trail. Many of the stops are in tiny towns with very few observations.

I spent all afternoon in Farmersville and made a little under 100 observations, mainly the most common species like poison ivy and the American crow. It's what I do the first time I make a sweep of a place. I wish I could have afforded to book a hotel for the night, because there are other nature things to do in the area like visit Lavon Lake.

Later this week, I plan on going to the DeKalb section, which is much closer to Longview.

Wow, that sounds exciting. Now, you got my attention. Sounds like I see a "Road Trip" coming up soon. Is there a map of the trail available?

Yes, it's on the web page I linked. The NETTX Trail also has a Facebook page.
