FLOWER MOUND — The winding two-lane Farm Road 1171 cuts through the area west to east. Beginning at Interstate 35W about 2 miles north of Texas Motor Speedway, motorists can hop on for a 7.3-mile journey through mostly undeveloped parts of Flower Mound, places where horses roam behind white fences on tree-lined acreage.
Even though this city is in the middle of the Metroplex, parts of it still resemble the Cross Timbers ecological region as it was 150 years ago, before miles of dense oak and walnut growth were replaced by concrete flatland.
