Need to Know
There's plenty of shade and water in Trinity Park and Haws/Panther Island, 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.
This side of the river has access at Trinity Park N and at Haws/Panther Island. Trinity North trailhead is 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 and the Phyllis Tilley bridge are a nice wide smooth concrete track.
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.
