The scenic Campion Trail offers an eclectic mixture of natural and urban views as it travels through the Dallas suburb of Irving. Currently, the trail is comprised of separate north and south sections that together total more than 13 miles of wide, flat and paved pathway. Future plans call for connecting the two segments as part of a 22-mile greenbelt along tributaries of the Trinity River.
The longer northern section follows the Elm Fork of the Trinity River and is an important recreational and commuting route. The trail begins in the Valley Ranch community at Sam Houston Trail Park. From there, it travels south to Las Colinas, Irving's central business district.
The southern section follows the West Fork of the Trinity River. It begins in Trinity View Park, where you'll find drinking fountains, restrooms, picnic shelters, grills, and athletic fields. Additional amenities can be found along the way at Twin Wells Park and Mountain Creek Preserve. This section connects to Grand Prairie’s Lone Star Trail. The two trails are part of a larger regional effort to join trail systems across Irving, Grand Prairie, Fort Worth, Arlington, and Dallas.
Parking for the northern section of the trail is available in T.W. Richardson Grove Park (333 Interstate 635) and Sam Houston Trail Park (101 East Interstate 635).
Parking for the southern section of the trail is available in Trinity View Park (2221 East State Highway 356) and Mountain Creek Preserve (1000 E. Hunter Ferrell).
