How to Get There

over 1 year ago

Great Suggestion!

This is one of the best places in DFW. My activity of choice is road biking followed by paddle boarding in front of the historic mansions. Those who were born and raised in Dallas grew up hearing about the urban legend of "The Lady of the Lake".

Texas / Santa Elena Canyon Parking Area

With a small group of people, canoes and kayaks, and one vehicle the boomerang trip (paddling against the current, then floating back downstream) up Santa Elena Canyon is the best option for floating.
