Trails and Parks
McLean residents will enjoy easy access to natural beauty and recreation both within the community and beyond. Miles of trails for walkers and cyclists will link McLean’s gardens, historic homes, fishing ponds and parks, such as the planned 10-acre city of Belmont park and McLean Point, a waterfront jewel with hundreds of feet of shoreline. Additionally, special mountain biking trails will be built adjacent to Overlake for younger adventurers.
Visitors already can use our trailhead to hike the magnificent Seven Oaks Preserve Trail. The 2.8-mile shoreline path winds among ancient oaks and tulip poplars to Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden, where hikers can continue on the garden’s trails to complete a 5-mile loop.
