Directions to Brockdale Park Trail head

Lucas is northeast of Dallas, TX. From Dallas, go north on US 75 to the Bethany Drive exit in Allen and go east. Take Bethany Drive through Allen into Lucas (about 5 miles). Counting the light at the expressway exit, you will go through nine lights. The ninth light is at Bethany and FM 1378 where Lucas City Hall will be on the left. Go straight. In about ½ mile, when the road makes a sharp curve, you will see a stoplight and the Lucas Food Mart and gas station will be on your left. Turn left here on FM 3286 and go less than a mile to Brockdale Park Road. There is a brown Brockdale Park sign on the right just before the turn. It turns off to the right. If you get to the bridge over Lake Lavon you have gone too far. Follow Brockdale Park Road around to the trail head. You will drive through three 90-degree turns. The trail head is at the 3rd 90-degree turn on the right and is bordered by white pipe fence. If you get to the boat ramp you have gone too far.

Beware of Cracks on Trail

The prolonged drought and intense heat have caused major cracks in our trail.

The trails are still open for those brave enough to venture out, but we recommend you use caution when riding on the trail as horses can easily trip in the cracks.

TTPA Workday – 7 AM Saturday 13 Aug 2011

Yes we know it is hot, but the exciting news is that the new re-routed trail segment between Brockdale and Collin Park will be completed this week.  So now we need to go out there and do some trimming!  We will start early in the morning to beat the heat.

Charlie will have our gator and will try to arrange to have a 2nd gator or cart to get us out there to do the work.

Meet at Brockdale at 7 AM
Bring gloves, water, trimmers/pruners.
