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.
Trails are cool but rough terrain
I like it! I wish more shade on trail but other than I love the scenery of FW!
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.
