Trinity River

Trails Header Rowing


We make sure the river floats your boat

There are long stretches of the Trinity Trails where you’ll catch sight of the graceful movements of sculling boats, canoes and kayaks. The protected water in the levees makes for ideal rowing conditions, with a natural shelter from winds along the river.

Join the Fort Worth Rowing Club for fun, fitness and a little friendly competition, from scout merit badges to regattas. A member of the United State Rowing Association (USRowing) since 1991, the Fort Worth Rowing Club rows on the Trinity River from the Beach Street boathouse east of downtown Fort Worth.
