Trinity River Trails Ramble Professional Review and Guide
"Fort Worth was the last stop until Kansas for cattle drives heading north. As a result, a lively outpost grew up there around a military settlement established on the Trinity River. Today old stockyards built to handle this traffic are preserved as a national historic district. Fort Worth has preserved this western heritage, but has an extraordinary cultural district, home to world-class museums, a wonderful zoo, and beautiful gardens.
There are lovely parks and trails and country clubs along the Trinity River, which meanders through the city. Terrain: flat, windy on less sheltered parts of the trail. Road: Trinity River Trails are narrow, dedicated bicycle paths with varying asphalt and concrete surfaces. About 4 miles, toward the cultural district, are on public roadways, generally neighborhood streets with some crossings of roads with high-speed traffic."
