More than 40 miles of trails with plenty of access points let you enjoy cycling without worrying about automobile traffic. Whether it’s for a quick lunchtime spin, a relaxed family outing or a multi-hour weekend ride, Streams & Valleys is proud to provide cyclists with a ride that is both care- and car-free.
Every mile of Fort Worth’s Trinity Trail system is designed for enjoyment on foot. You can hop on the trails from one of the many trailheads or neighborhood connections, listening to your footsteps clip along the hard surface trails or crunch on the soft surface paths.
Whether you prefer the urban atmosphere of Trinity Park, the wide open spaces along stretches of the levee or the nature-inspired escape of River Bend or Farmers Branch, you’ll find your runner’s paradise on the Trinity.
We’ve made sure to accommodate horse owners on the Trinity Trails – this is Fort Worth, after all. Miles of horse trails along the beautiful Trinity River allow horseback riders to enjoy riding in a serene urban setting, and four separate trailheads designated for horse trailer parking make it easy to come and go.
