Best Hikes Near Dallas/Fort Worth
by Kathryn Hopper (Falcon Guides)
Fort Worth’s Trinity Trails offer easy access and scenic views that attract runners, walkers, and bicyclists who make them part of their daily workout regime. The scenic network of more than 40 miles of paved pathways connect many city parks and attractions as they meander along greenbelts of the Trinity River and its tributaries. The trails are in the midst of a massive upgrade. With more links coming online, it has become the place to see and be seen by Cowtown hipsters. This 4.4-mile out-and back hike follows one of the most popular segments of the trail—from University Drive through Trinity Park to the Zero Mile Marker, located near the Main Street Bridge just north of downtown Fort Worth. The trail is rarely empty and can get packed on weekends as runners, cyclists, dog walkers, and others get in their workouts, but this being friendly Fort Worth, be ready to wave and say howdy to passersby.
