Tandy Hills Natural Area is a 160 acre indigenous remnant of prairie located in the heart of Fort Worth, Texas. Tandy Hills Natural Area (THNA) is a 160 acre indigenous remnant of Fort Worth prairie located in the heart of Fort Worth, Texas. The land was obtained by the City of Fort Worth Parks Department in the 1960s and designated a natural area in 1987. Since 1990, the park has been managed by the Fort Worth Nature Center and Refuge. Noted for its unusually complete collection of prairie flora, THNA contains more than 500 native plant species. The show of spring wildflowers is unsurpassed in the Metroplex. The land is a living demonstration of how most of Fort Worth and the Great Plains appeared in predevelopment times. THNA is adjacent to I-30 and less than 5 minutes from downtown Fort Worth, Texas. The fact that it has never been developed and survived into the 21st century in relatively pristine condition is extremely remarkable.

Fun little trail in the middle of the city! Brought our kids and my 5 yr old had no problem with it. Fun creek crossing. Muddy, but it is January...

Only real downside was the highway noise. Very few hikers, but the ones we did pass said it is stunning in the spring with the wildflowers. Will do this trail again.

Tandy Hills Park, Fort Worth, Tex. This is a nice trail on natural ground 1.86 miles. Trail begins by playground follow concrete sidewalk to the round circle with 2 park benches. The trailhead is to the right of the benches. It looks like there used to be a trailhead sign to mark the trail but all that remains is the posts. The rest of the trail is rocky when elevation changes, and then level prairie land. This trail is very close to highway I-30 so if a quiet trail is what you looking for, this is not the trail your looking for. However there are several spectacular city scape views of downtown Ft. Worth. It is very pretty at sunset! I followed the Hawk Trail, but there are several other trails that I will explore at another time.

Love these trails. Nice and hidden with amazing views of Ft. worth. Sunsets are something! Dog friendly! Lots of wildflowers in the spring

Great trail if you want a real hike in Texas but dont wanna leave the metroplex. Lots of elevation change and areas with shade.This isnt an easy one so be prepared with lots of water. Cool place to see how the land was before the city popped up.

what a treasure right in our backyard. lots of wildflowers, butterflies and rabbits. moderate is a good rating. some wet spots due to recent rains but mostly dry. start early in the morning because it could get very hot.

This is a good urban trail hike when you need something close in the DFW metroplex. I bet it's pretty in the spring when the wildflowers bloom.

Scoped this place out for my son’s Cub Scouts. Overall, it’s a nice set-up. We enjoyed the views, with lots of trees and rugged terrain. In some areas there was a lot of trash. We came across a sleeping bag and two sets of clothes, undergarments and all. Not sure where the people belonging to those clothes were.

Really nice marked trails.

This trail could use some TLC. Not very many wild flowers along the trail itself, but a big patch by the park. Its best to stay on the main trail, we accidently ended up in someone's backyard and a lot of the other trails were cutoffs. Watch for snakes as well! We saw a 2ft black snake at the first creek on the trail. Bring a small trash bag if you're feeling generous to pick up trash along the trail!

It was really beautiful and there were so many wildflowers. This is great hike for the springtime.

Interesting trail. The good is that it offers a wilderness experience close to downtown. The unpaved trails feel like game trails with just enough hills to keep it fun. Some of the bad things are that there is indeed homeless people camping out, although if you stick to the main trails it is unlikely you will stumble across any. I only saw two trail markers but it's pretty hard to get lost. I went on a rather gloomy day, so the whole experience had a bit of a fallout 4 vibe.

The trails themselves are very nice if you’re looking for rugged natural areas. This review is based on the area. I started hiking here at lunch a few days ago and yesterday discovered a campfire that had gotten out of control. My assumption is that this area is close enough to downtown to have homeless people camping here. I will not be going again. If you are in a group you may feel safe but I would not go alone or with smaller children.

Go towards the end of April/early May, and you will see all the wildflowers you have ever dreamed of.

this was my 1st hike! I learned a lot! to start earlier, I started at 8am, and that I need trekking poles for safety because no one was out there and I'd be stranded if I rolled my ankle. I saw a lizard cross my path, which reminded there could be snakes and I had tennis shoes on. I also should have brought an Asset Pad! only the ground to sit on. it's true Texas terrain, loaded with mesquite trees and tons of wild flowers when I went the middle of July. all the colors together! the trails look like a fun maze! but as long as you can see downtown, you know where you are. you have to park on the street and walk all the way across the playground to see the start of the trail. it was clean & I didn't leave anything behind. it's a good place for biking or trail running, but little bits of shade. beautiful view. there's history on this trail you can look up if you home school. I'll go back with boots and trekking poles! (I'm a 62 year old female)

Liked this spot, but no parking area (have to park on the street) and trails are barely marked. It is a pretty location with lots of trails to try.

I like how surprising it is to find this kind of elevation & rural location in the city. It was a short day trip for me and my kiddos. We liked the dirt trails and mostly shaded. It's not marked all that well, I will agree. However, I just used my phone gps to keep us on track with previous peoples' courses using this app. Will return.
