🏑 Description

Explore a wonderful nature area in the heart of Highland Village. The City of Highland Village has a beautiful park system with three parks located on the shoreline of Lake Lewisville. The Wichita Forest, a wonderful little known nature preserve of about 75 acres adjacent to Lake Lewisville, is free. There is a small parking lot near the trail head just off Highland Village Road. Bruce Lockhart Park is a small improved park adjoining this parking lot. The Wichita Forest nature trail is within the Eastern Cross Timbers region of Texas. The original region was approximately 19,000 square miles of gently rolling to hilly landscape. The Cross Timbers are drought-stressed woodlands, populated by low-stature, slow-growing trees. It has typically sandy soils with some pockets of clay. The dominate tree is the Post oak. The surviving Post oaks are in the 200 to 400 year old range, though their diameter may be only 12 – 18 inches. The name Cross Timbers came from early European settlers traveling east to west because they found belts of oak forest dividing prairie grasslands. They used these strips as markers or reference points before the availability of good maps. Wichita Forest has numerous trails and a wonderful diversity of plants and wildlife. There is something new all along the trails in all seasons. One trail is designated as joint use equestrian trail.
