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.

Path between 7th and University was fine except under I-30 bridge. Mural was partially painted over.

We took a nice casual ride around the west side of Fort Worth. All is green and alongside the river. There are many trails that go off the route, into neighborhoods, downtown, various parks, and other parts of town. You can choose the cement or sand path. There are a number of bridges to cross. A very enjoyable place to ride!
P.S. There's a gap in the route because I paused and forgot to restart it right away.

Great for trail running, walking, road and mountain biking. Minimal elevation changes and you can use the concrete path or the crushed limestone path that is along most of the trail. There are lots of options to log a lot of miles out here without having to cover the same parts of the trail over and over again.

I've spent many hours running and walking here. It's best to run/walk with a group. It's in the heart of the city, so there's all the issues that go along with that. There are some lovely shady parts that make the walk/run bearable. Along the river there is no shade.

Walked the trails around Trinity park on the west side of the river by 7th street from the city park and duck pond. Shaded well in the park, open air when walking next to the river made a hot day cool. Bike traffic is high in this area but share the path well. The only reason its not five stars is the path will get to narrow to handle bike and walking path.
