Description

Bluebonnet Trail is a 5.6 mile trail that runs east and west through central Plano. It is slated for expansion on both the west and east ends to eventually reach the city limits. Bluebonnet Trail connects through seven parks: High Point Athletic Fields, Wagon Wheel Park, Blue Ridge Park, the Dog Park and Jack Carter Park, Lone Star Park, Carpenter Park and Archgate Park. Additionally, Bluebonnet Trail connects to Carpenter Recreation Center, the Plano Sports Authority Center, Thomas Elementary, Carlisle Elementary, Schimelpfening Middle School, Robinson Middle School, Jasper High School and Gulledge Elementary. Bluebonnet Trail has more than twenty connection points to streets and parks, connects to seven proposed on-street bike routes, and also connects to the 5.5 mile long Chisholm Trail that runs along side Spring Creek in central Plano in a northwestern and southeastern direction.
