A historic town that's just 20 minutes west of the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex, but it's like stepping back years in time. Whether you come for an afternoon, a day or two, it's easy to see why Weatherford has become a draw for history buffs, western lifestyle enthusiasts and those with a pioneer spirit. Rails-to-Trails is a 26 mile trail-way that can be explored by foot, bicycle or horseback. You can enjoy the wild life along the trail as it winds through the country side all the way from Weatherford to Mineral Wells. Town Creek Hike and Bike Trail is a favorite for residents and visitors. The 3.2 miles of trail way begins at the Weatherford Chamber of Commerce, runs along Santa Fe Drive and the First Monday Grounds, connecting with a second trailhead at the Weatherford Police Department. From there, the trail leads in two additional trails. One leg heads east, crosses Town Creek, and ends at Boise Ikard Elementary School. The other leg makes its way along the east side of Eureka Street and connects with Holland Lake Park. Golf enthusiasts will love Weatherford's scenic and challenging public courses. Finally, for water lovers, there's Weatherford Lake, perfect for boating or fishing.
