The trail runs along the site formerly occupied by the tracks of the Missouri-Kansas- Texas Railroad, called the Katy for short. The tracks were taken up long ago and the old right-of-way of the railroad has evolved from a neighborhood eyesore to the place to see and be seen in uptown Dallas. It’s the closest thing North Texas hiking has to a singles bar, as the city’s buff and beautiful sweat out romance. Some couples have even married on the trail.

But don’t feel put off if you’re not in the market; the trail welcomes all ages as long as you don’t wander into the adjacent private homes and apartment complexes. It’s also the only Dallas area trail with a logoed dog leash and bandana—available on the website of Friends of the Katy Trail, the nonprofit group that promotes and protects this ever-popular pathway.
