Take a Hike on Nov. 17
November 12, 2018
Celebrate National Take a Hike Day on Nov. 17 with, what else? A hike. The McKinney area is filled with beautiful places to roam, including our own B.B. Owen Park. The park is open to non-residents, but if you happen to be lucky enough to live in Trinity Falls, you can participate in a guided tour of our most beautiful amenity.
If you aren’t a resident you can still visit B.B. Owen Park (don’t forget to hike up to our gorgeous model homes) or spend the day exploring some of these beautiful trails found around McKinney.
