Located on the far North side of Lake Lavon, Sister Grove Park offers a convenient place to hike, mountain bike, cook-out and chill.Sister Grove Park is a peaceful place to hang a hammock and listen to the birds after a solid hike.

The parking area contains ample parking, bathrooms and covered picnic tables. The clearly marked trail head sits to the south of the circular parking area and welcomes hikers, trail-runners, mountain bikers, and dogs.

The trail is a 7 mile loop that consists of 4 smaller trails that are clearly marked. The Sister Loop runs down close to the lake and is heavily wooded.

Due to the views of the lake, wildlife, open meadows and cedars, Sister Grove has become a popular destination for photography. On the weekends, head to downtown Farmersville for the Farmer's Market at the Onion Pavilion.

For those of us in North Texas finding a bit of solitude in a bike ride isn’t the easiest thing. This trail is well maintained by DORBA and they have added a few miles in the past couple of years. Great single track in most areas and a variety of skill levels throughout.

First and foremost, to get to this trailhead you need to drive down a 2-mile, one lane dirt road that is quite steep.
