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 7 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 for about 2 miles. 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 the Mountain Creek Preserve.
