You're moving from CO to TX??? Why on earth?? lol We're actually moving from here to CO! The parks/trails around here are not going to hold a candle to what you're used to. Tyler State Park is the closest you'll come to good hiking trails (and you no longer need a license to fish in Texas State Parks, in case you're interested). Rose Rudman and Faulkner have nice residential settings, but nothing as challenging or as beautiful as what Colorado has to offer. Good luck in your search!

Charesa is correct if you're moving here from anywhere in Colorado except Denver. Tyler is a much smaller city and it's easier to get out compared to a large city like Denver. Hiking isn't so popular here, but there's a very large cycling community and lots of places to ride.

We have a great park named Faulkner Park. You may want to also explore that area. There are some new homes right next to the park and a more settled subdivision on the other side of the park.

This property is located a short distance from Rose Rudman park. This is a great park for riding bikes on a paved walkway and for walking. If you like mountain biking and more rustic trails, you might consider the trails at UT Tyler which are a couple of miles east of this property. There is also Faulkner Park which offers rustic trails for mountain biking, walking, and has a great fishing lake. They stock the lake at Faulkner with Rainbow Trout in late January to early February of each year.

If you are not currently working with a Realtor, please feel free to call me on my cell at (903) 520-6843 and let's visit about relocating to Tyler.
