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.
Be prepared for possible rough conditionson some sections.
We have heard from recumbent trike riders who had issues getting through some of the bollards.
There are some detours, as noted on the NETT Trail map
, due to damaged bridges.
is working to get the state of Texas to adopt the trail as a state park.
