Interested in enjoying the Chisholm Trail but not sure where to park, or good ways to walk/bike/run a “loop” on the trail? I like to know where I’m headed when I’m on foot or bike, so I mapped out the trail. I hope you find this helpful! Scroll down for an interactive Google map.

Some suggested routes, for those of us that need to drive to utilize this Plano gem:

  • Schimelpfenig Library to E 15th: 3 miles (one way)
  • Legacy to Veterans Memorial: 2 miles (one way)
  • Loop starting at Schimelpfenig Library and turning around at Cross Bend Rd: 1.4 miles
  • Loop starting at Jack Carter Dog Park and turning around just after the lake at Big Lake Park: about 3.3 miles

There are bathrooms and water fountains by the playground at Veterans Memorial Park. You can park on the street in many locations, but if you’re looking for a parking lot your options are the Jack Carter Dog Park (2601 Pleasant Valley Dr), Jack Carter Playground (2800 Maumelle Dr), Schimelpfenig Library (5024 Custer Rd) and the restaurants/stores at the E 15th Street end of the trail (1509 N Central Expy).
