Mineola Nature Preserve
1860 Co Rd 2724, Mineola, TX 75773
Grab your walking shoes (take a lesson from us-it would be much more comfortable in workout clothes), pack a back pack, and head to Mineola, Tx.
This place is a beautiful, serene escape for some much needed fresh air & sunshine!
As soon as you park there are beautiful wildflower beds.
We took this opportunity to dust off the old butterfly nets and do some catching!
There are plenty of fishing spots
But since we didn’t bring our poles, we fed the ducks instead!
Then we headed off on the trails…
We found a beehive..
And a pond with frogs, snakes, turtles & even little crawfish….
We even found a rickety bridge and took our chances across it 😬 yikes
Two & a half hours & 5,500 steps* later, we made it back! But, our little adventurers STILL had enough energy for the play area that’s on the way out..
We couldn’t have asked for a better place to spend a gorgeous day. This is definitely a must go!! We had an amazing adventure. Sadly, no butterflies.. But I think we caught everything else, haha
*For the Fitbit mommas, I’m going to put the amount of steps I tracked per adventure (thanks for the idea, Billy)
All our love,
