Trinity Skyline Trail Description

The Trinity Skyline Trail allows residents and visitors to explore the Trinity River in downtown Dallas. The paved trail currently connects to a pedestrian bridge and park known as the Continental Avenue Bridge, and in the future will connect to the Santa Fe Trail (anticipated to happen in 2017) and the Trinity Strand Trail.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available in Trammell Crow Park (3700 Sylvan Avenue), at the Continental Avenue Bridge (109 Continental Avenue) and at the Trinity Overlook (110 W. Commerce Street).

Trinity Skyline Trail Reviews

Open sky

Mix of paved and gravel trails available. There is trash around, but take time to see the beauty. Parts seem like open prairie. When you get west of Sylvan, it becomes quiet and you can hear hawks. Watch for ducks, herons, and cranes. Btw, there are feral hogs early dawn and late Eve. You can find their tracks. Great place to hike with no cars.


It's hard to get to, and difficult to figure out. I could not find how to get to the northeastern side of the trail. It seemed a little less safe than the rest of the trails in Dallas.

Trinity River walk trail

My wife and I enjoyed it very much. It was close to our hotel and really convent to get to for a great walk.

Nice Views

It makes a huge loop under the bridges close to downtown Dallas. After that it really has no place to go. Amazing views. However it has a great future when it connects to the Santa Fe trails. Right now you will have it virtually to yourself!
