About the Northeast Texas Trail
 
The longest trail in Texas, the Northeast Texas Trail (NETT) follows old Union Pacific and Chaparral railroad rights-of-way for 133 miles, from just northeast of Dallas to within a few miles of Texarkana. The NETT passes through many charming small towns and peaceful rural landscapes.
 
The trail is open and usable for cyclists, hikers, and horseback riders. There are some detours, as noted on the NETT Trail map, due to damaged bridges. A coalition is working to get the state of Texas to adopt the trail as a state park.
 
You'll find many interesting sights along the way, from the City Drug Store Museum in Roxton to the Eiffel Tower replica in Paris, to many historic railroad bridges.
