Things To Do in Denton, Texas

We really enjoy our community and encourage our guests to get out and meet the local Denton County and surrounding area businesses. Denton is an amazing place to live, and one of the joys of owning a bed and breakfast is sharing the area with visitors. Check out the Denton Chamber of Commerce or the Convention and Business Bureau for more information on our great town.

Sit back, relax, stay a while and explore. With so much to do, we expect you'll want to come back again and again.

Just .6 miles from our gate is Greenbelt Park and the Trails of Denton County.

  • Miles of biking and hiking trails; even kayaking. Over 10 miles of nature at its best is the natural preserve between Lewisville Lake and Lake Ray Roberts!
  • Hundreds of species of birds and wildlife abound including white tail deer.
  • The greenbelt is a wilderness area with approximately 10 miles of multi-use trails and waterways for bicyclists, equestrians, hikers, kayakers and others. The 1,500 Ray Roberts Lake/Lake Lewisville Greenbelt Corridor runs north/south along the Elm Fork of the Trinity River, connecting Ray Roberts Lake with Lake Lewisville.
  • The greenbelt begins as the Elm Fork Trail leads away from the Isle du Bois Unit on the south shore of Ray Roberts Lake near Pilot Point. Heading south, the trail crosses under FM 455 and winds a little over a mile to the Elm Fork canoe and greenbelt access point, with parking and restrooms. Here the trail joins the Elm Fork of the Trinity and splits in two; with one trail, a hard surface hike and bike trail, snaking along the river's west side and another for equestrian use along the east. The two trails converge at the FM 428 access point. The trail then proceeds south another six miles along the river's east bank to the end at the highway 380 crossing at the headwaters of Lake Lewisville. On the southern portion of the trail, all users are on the east side of the river. The hard surface trail is for the hike and bike use and equestrians may use the construction haul roads.
  • Entrance fees to access the park are the same as those for Ray Roberts Lake State Park - $3 per adult, free for children age 12 and under.
