The Ridgewood Trail is a 3-mile northern extension of the Katy Trail, connecting downtown Dallas with the White Rock Lake. The trail begins just west of Worcola Street, and is linked to the main Katy Trail via a bridge over the train tracks. The trail continues north and east to Ridgewood Belcher Recreation Center, paralleling the railroad as it goes. While there concrete path ducks underneath Glenville Avenue, additional pedestrian bridges take users over Skillman Street and Abrams Road. At its northern endpoint, the trail connects to another Katy Trail extension, the SoPac Trail.
You can park at 5465 E Mockingbird Ln Parking. It is free and normally you will find a lot of empty spots. It is also very close (600ft) from the beginning of the trail.
Your other option is to park at the Ridgewood Belcher Recreation Center, located on 6818 Fisher Road. The center also has a range of amenities from a fitness center to tennnis courts to picnic tables.
This trail is nice and smooth the entire way. It's a shorter one but I love it for rollerblading
This is a great trail that goes from Mockingbird dart station in the west to connect to the SoPac trail further east. There’s a road to cross near the start(Worcola St) but then exclusively bike/walk/run ducking under Greenville Ave then bridges crossing Skillman St and Abrams Rd until beyond Ridgewood Park where it crosses Fisher Rd before heading down a ramp to join the SoPac trail. Easy cycling with a lot less users than the ever popular Katy trail. The day I did it coming back between Skillman and Greenville Ave saw a coyote near the dart line.
