Need to Know
Haws Trailhead is kind of a waypoint at a junction of paths, and it has a shaded bench plus a water fountain (though no dog bowl). It's a short trot across a bridge over the Trinity River's Clear Fork from Panther Island. PI is an entertainment destination, with seasonal offerings such as boat rentals, concessions, and concerts.
The Trinity Trail itself at Panther Island has lots of shaded benches, portable toilets, water fountains, and misting station. The section winding between Panther Island and Cold Springs has a few benches scattered throughout, and while there's no water/restrooms/trash cans, there's a good many more trees than on some other legs of the trails. There's a crushed limestone path on the west side of the river and an asphalt path on the east side that parallel the concrete track and offer a little bit of an alternative underfoot.
The Trinity Trails system is over 70 miles of trails connecting multiple neighborhoods and parks, encompassing trailheads, water fountains, low water crossings, kayak launches, equestrian, and gravel trail segments.
