Active Hike & Bike Trail Projects
Frisco has more than 47 miles of hike and bike trails developed throughout the city. The vision of Frisco’s trail system is outlined in the Hike and Bike Master Plan (PDF).
Cottonwood Creek Trail Extension
The existing Cottonwood Creek Trail is to be extended under the Dallas North Tollway along the Cottonwood Branch to the intersection of All Stars Avenue and Frisco Street. This proposed section of trail will span approximately 0.5 miles and allow for approximately 3.3 miles of continuous trail access from North County Road to Teel Parkway.
This 1.2-mile trail will connect existing sections of trail located near Hillcrest Road within the Dominion at Panther Creek subdivision and an existing section of trail located north of the Latera subdivision, near Preston Road. The trail will also be designed with a bridge connection from the Creekside at Preston subdivision to the Dominion at Panther Creek subdivision, allowing users to access the Coyote Crossing neighborhood park.
Monarch Hike and Bike Trail
The Monarch Hike and Bike Trail area is located south of Little Ranch Road and east of FM 423 between Coneflower Drive and Gray Fox Lane on the Glen View subdivision. This trail is shown on the City of Frisco recently completed revision of the Hike and Bike Trail Master Plan and will serve as an important pedestrian connection from FM 423 to Teel Parkway, linking the Glen View and Gray Hawk communities to the new Monarch View Neighborhood Park, Billy Gene Phillips Elementary School and Northwest Community Park.
Parvin Branch Trail Connector
The existing Cottonwood Creek Trail is to be extended under the Dallas North Tollway, and a trail connection is shown to be developed along the Parvin Branch tributary along in the northern portion of Frisco. There is currently a gap in this section of trail under Preston Road/State Hwy 289, between the Bretton Woods subdivision to the east and the Star Business Park development to the west. This proposed section of trail will span approximately 400 feet underneath the existing underpass to connect the sections of trail. Public bid is planned for September 2021.

Six Cities Trail Connector
(Collin County Regional Trails Master Plan)
Frisco’s hike and bike trail system will soon to connect to Plano through the Six Cities Trail Plan, part of the larger Collin County Regional Trail Master Plan which connects the cities of Frisco, Plano, Allen, Richardson, McKinney and Garland. This project extends Taychas Trail at Limestone Quarry Park south along Rowlett Creek to Plano going under the Sam Rayburn Tollway at Custer Road. The trail connection is expected to be complete late summer 2020.
