Need to Know
There's plenty of shade and water in Trinity Park, but the trail outside the park has minimal trees and benches, and no water, so take plenty of water and sunblock! These trails are BUSY with joggers and cyclists, so keep your eyes open!
There is heavy bike activity so riders will be passing you often.
Trinity Main and Trinity North trailheads are both within Fort Worth's Trinity Park, so all the park amenities are open to trail users as well. The trailheads have water fountains and benches as well as signage. The park has portable toilets, bike rentals, misting stations, benches, picnic tables, playgrounds, kayak launch, duck pond, and a mini railroad.
The trail as it passes through the park is a nice wide smooth concrete track, and for most of the way a crushed limestone path runs close to it that you can ride horses on. Once you pass north out of the park, on your way towards Haws TH, the trail switches a few times to a little bit narrower and pebblier of a material, but there's no real difference to the foot or bike feel.
Flora & Fauna
The Trinity River offers lots of life! All kinds of birds including great white and blue herons, cattle egrets, scissortail flycatchers, and other songbirds. The river itself hosts freshwater mussels, turtles, fish, and beavers. Wildflowers bloom consistently through from spring to fall, so there are always bees and dragonflies and damselflies.
