Enjoy the open space of the country and the parks and riversides of Fort Worth as you wander this pretty urban trail. You can start your journey from the center of the city or you can start from way out in Gateway Park. You can bike, hike, inline skate, and walk your dog. You can travel for 32 miles out-and-back or take a leisurely half mile stroll. The Trinity River Trail system has something for everyone. It is dotted with river crossings, tree groves, benches, misting stations, and expansive parks. The trail is surprisingly solitary on weekdays and a major social gathering spot on weekends. It offers its users the choice of various branches and even allows people to choose which side of the river they want to explore. You can choose to start your exploration in the city and work your way out or you can start in the rural portion and venture into Fort Worth. It is trails like the Trinity Trail that make the city of Fort Worth such a fun place to visit.

I was disappointed that the trails are gravel on the North West side. I was on a road bike and the terrain wasn't suitable. I did manage to get in 30 miles and it was otherwise a great ride.

A mixed bag of crowded and isolated, depending on what part of the trail you're in, Trinity trails is a good place to cycle and burn off those extra calories or just a reason to enjoy the outdoors. Parts of the trail connect different areas of Fort Worth.

I love this trail and it's my go to when I am in Fort Worth. Easy trail for. It's running and biking. a lot of people so it's not a place to go to get away.. But so close to the city, so special for that. You can also rent city bikes along the path. The views of Fort Worth are beautiful.

Definitely a fun trail to run and bike. Clean and scenic with either the view of the Trinity River or Downtown or both. Very cool that there is such an awesome trail so close to the city life. It's a busy trail too on parts near downtown, so good for girls who may be worried about trekking alone.

My "go to" place. Nothing too technical on any part of it, unless you get off road by marine creek. Because it follows the trinity river, elevation stays pretty constant. Road bike I ride the concrete/paved and 29'er, I ride the dirt and crushed stone. Good workout with regular cadence. Branches off many different forks, more to come when they connect from Fort Worth to Dallas!

All cement trails w/ a few hard dirt pack areas just next to them. Great for feeling a little separated from the city. The park off University is always very well taken care of; few vagrants but they just add to the scenery. Great to build up some speed on a mtn. bike. Construction is sprinkled in around certain bridges but it's pretty easy to get around. Rented kayaks on the river not too long ago and that was fun to, just don't get too friendly with the water. Overall a nice example of a city taking a park seriously.

Great place to bike, run, walk, etc. Some construction work as of 6-14-13 but it's easy to go around. Some parts or blocked off during the week of Mayfest. A word of advice don't go around Northside and avoid the horse trails.

Very good trail in ft worth. I usually start from the benbrook side and ride all the way to cowtown and back. I usually stop at the food truck park on the way back to get some quick snack and cool off before I head back. Winds can make the ride easier or harder depending on where it's blowing from. Enjoy!

You will love this urban trail in the heartland of Texas. Plan for lots of fun stops in and near Fort Worth. If you go on a weekday, you will have portions of the trail to yourself.
