Had a great time on the Trinity River Trail. I road from Benbrook (SW) and was able to connect easily. Only issue I had was that the map shows the trail extending North past 23rd and that does not seem to exist. I spoke with a woman who works as a guard out there and she agreed that there was nothing north of 23rd.
heads up! this trail along the Trinity to Airspace Falls is mostly gravel, so if you're riding a road bike - can be a bit more challenging! The serenity at the Falls made the trip worth it for me! :)
The city of Fort Worth has done a few million dollars worth of improvements connecting trails and upgrading other's.
This is a great trail. Ran it today with my grandson as we train for the Dallas Half Marathon. Slight up hill run when you start off of Scott street and a great easy run back. Very nice!
I'm a novice biker and I really enjoyed this trail. Very well maintained.
We didn't know this trail existed in our area until I got the TrailLink app. Very well-maintained concrete trail that has parking at both ends. The trail is slightly uphill starting in the Old Town area, so we were glad we went that way since we could coast most of the way back. Fun ride!
Good long trail for biking. Early morning venture had less traffic till later on. Watch for dog bombs on the East side as some owners don't clean up. Water fountains are few so bring water. One part was closed at Collins I believe due to mud on the pathway from flooding.
Beautiful trail. Great for a long walk...very big...turtles can be spotted in the creek. A hidden gem in Arlington.
Fort Worth Trinity Trails winds along the Trinity River and around the Beautiful Fort Worth skyline downtown, and to exciting places around Cowtown, such as the new Panther Island uptown, and places soon world known like the coming soon Central City Town Lake, and a Magnificent river walk like Downtown San Antone. The trails continue with serenity mostly along the Trinity, and into the heart of Fort Worth also known as Panther City, and into the vicinity of Downtown Fort Worth that was once rated number one by Livability. The Trinity Trails wind around the city, passing nearby, or through so many exciting attractions and things to do, such as 21 Beautiful city parks, Benbrook Lake, Fort Worth Botanic Gardens, The Log Cabin Village, Forest Park Miniature Railroad, and the Fort Worth Zoo. The trails wind to and fro with so many interesting and Fabulous Fort Worth places to go, with special events, shows, artifacts, and things to know, such as The Cultural District with it's many world renown museums, Casa Manana theater, Will Rogers Center & Auditorium, or The Historic district, with the Fort Worth Stockyards, Billy Bobs, and Cowtown Coliseum. The Trinity Trails are the Best trails in Texas, and will some day continue further along the Trinity, and around the Metroplex, from Fort Worth to Dallas. Fort Worth Trinity Trails, walk, ride, or run, its time to hit the trails for fitness, tranquility, or a whole lot Fort Worth fun.
Wow. I moved here from out of state, and I feel SO frustrated with the lack of info on parking, maps of the trail, amenities, and trail conditions in Texas available on the 'net or at the parks. I am used to posted signage which gives you a visual of the trail and periodic "you are here" information along the path. This trail is no exception. Google Maps couldn't even get me there without several searches the closer I got to the trail, and there is NO signage anywhere in Waxahachie to help visitors find the trail. It's as if they're saying (and it's the same with every other Texan trail I've visited so far) "if you're not from here, don't come". Ignore Google Maps directions which take you onto I35E South and to a small parking area at the Waxahachie Depot at mile 1 3/4 .
That said, the best way to access this trail is to Google Getzendaner Memorial Park and begin your ride there. The park has plenty of parking, and there is easy access to water and bathroom facilities. The trail basically starts/ends here for cycling, although you can hike further using dirt hiking paths, and there are also "Health Stations" sited along the first mile or so where walkers can stop and do some fitness activities. At the Wags-A-Hachie Dog Park (about the 2 1/2 mile mark), there's a garden with info about native plants and benches for resting.
Also note there is a dirt "Mountain Bike" only trail (no walkers) which basically parallels the paved path, but forays into the surrounding countryside on occasion before meeting the main path again, and is very well marked. The paved trail has very good granite markers every 1/4 mile so you know how far you've come and how far until the end of the trail by checking out both sides. The trail is 7-3/4 miles according to the marker at Getzendaner Park.
Be prepared that this path winds back and forth, and you can't make any real speed. The scenery is lovely, and the path is mostly shaded with lots of benches situated along the trail. There is water available at the park, and at the Wags-A-Hachie Dog Park (about 2 1/2 miles) and again at the 5 mile mark, where I suddenly lost the trail at an (Unknown named) park. I rode around the park but never found where the path continues for the last 2 1/2 miles, so I turned around.
Also be prepared for horses (!) named LeBron and Shaq who appear out of nowhere, walkers with MP3 players blasting so they don't hear you ask for passing, and a lot of moms pushing strollers. With the path winding the way it does, I had a few close calls with people taking up the whole width of the path, and was almost kicked by LeBron. There was one other cyclist on the Saturday that I went.
In summary, this is a lovely park to walk, but I wouldn't drive there again to cycle. Except for a Subway on BUS287, I did not see any other places to eat, and unlike small towns back east, no signage to direct you back to the main highways. I literally used up my phone battery just finding the trail and getting back to the main roads because my phone kept losing service. It would be nice for a map of the park to be posted at the beginning so you know where different facilities are, and signage at the mystery park at the 5 mile marker to direct visitors to where the path continues.
Anchored in the heart of Fort Worth and extending out along the branches and tributaries of the Trinity River, this trail has a little bit of everything. In places it looks very much like a trail running through a big city, while in others it runs through trees so thick you can't see around the next bend. In places, it is flat, while in others you may find yourself gearing down to go over the hill. And if it still isn't difficult enough, you need not go more than a block from the trail to find some streets with sharp inclines. Take Taylor Street into downtown, or Ranier Ct instead of going through Foster Park. But if you want to be a tourist in Fort Worth, its hard to beat taking off down the Trinity Trail on a bicycle. Most of the things you want to see are within a few blocks of the trail, and some, like the Stockyards, are right on the trail. You don't even have to own a bicycle. Fort Worth has installed bicycle rental kiosks along the trail. Some of the bicycle shops in the area will rent bicycles for longer rides. Even though I live seven miles from the nearest trail entrance, I enjoy riding the trail on those days when my normal route is filled with kids playing in the street.
