I came early in the morning to beat the heat. A lot of rocks and dirt paths. Do not come here after it has rained. The trails are not marked too well. A lot of split paths that lead you to a dead end.. at one point I was lead to the back yard of someone's home.

Says on this app that it's for biking - signs everywhere say otherwise.
I took my two boys (4/2) hiking thru Tandy last weekend and loved it! The trails are very clearly marked, beautiful wild flowers everywhere, lots of friendly couples out hiking and walking their dogs. Overall it was a great experience and some of the steepest elevation changes I've seen in Tarrant County, with the exception of Marion Samson. Loved it, going back again soon!

Great for trail running! Alternates from utility roads to near bushwhacking, depending on which loops you select. Plenty to explore, and occasionally feels far from the city...
Took my dog out for a walk on this trail and got severely lost, we also ended up coming out through somebody's backyard . It was very muddy because of the recent rain but that said we were prepared in both of us enjoyed. Looking forward to going back and learning the trails so that next time we'll know where we're going.

If you are wanting some peace and quite then this is not the place to hike. You have the constant noise of the highway traffic around you but if you wear some ear buds and bring some music then you are in another place all together. Some moderate rocky hills and dry creeks is what to expect here. It is easy to get turned around and go in circles but that is all part of the fun of this nice hiking oasis just off I-30.
found this excellent park in my neighborhood. ...trails are foot traffic only and not paved..love it! took the bird trail and what started off being a 2 mile hike quickly turned into a 6 mile adventure. ..got lost a few times and the mounds n hills give one an excellent cardio...this is my favorite hiking park in Funky Town!
On September 16, 2013, I ran Tandy Hills Trails for the first time. There were multiple trails which I was not anticipating and therefore I got lost. I ended up coming out of the trails through someone's backyard. The since of adventure and the thrill of finding my way back was well worth it all! The gravel on the trails made running up and down extremely tricky, but manageable.
Once again, I enjoyed every moment and I will be running/hiking these trails many more times!
Tandy Hills Natural Area is owned and operated by the City of Fort Worth Parks and Community Services Dept., and managed by the staff at the Fort Worth Nature Center. This park only allows hiking, walking. Pets allowed but must be on a leash. No bicycles or horses are allowed!
went for a ride there this morning and was pleasantly surprised at what it was like. Lot's of hills with steep climbs/descents. Saw 3 people out hiking and all 3 were very friendly. I even stopped and talked to one guy for about 5 minutes. No trail signs at all so bring a sense of adventure when you come. Mainly ranch style roads in the valley with trails running off and up the hills.

My favorite place to get 'lost' in Fort Worth. Literally miles of mostly undeveloped land snuck in between a freeway and a neighborhood. Find it and wander...
