It’s National Bike Month, and there’s still the long holiday weekend to get out and explore some bike trails! The metroplex has hundreds of miles of paths perfect for families, from the popular White Lake Park Trail to Trinity Trails in Fort Worth. Keep reading to see some of our favorites, and then hit the road!
Trinity Skyline Trail & the Trinity Strand Trail - Dallas
The Skyline Trail is a 4.6-mile trail that meanders along the Trinity River in the Dallas Floodway. Soon, the Trinity Strand Trail, which is a 2.5-mile trail through the Design District, will connect to the Skyline Trail and over 70 miles of other trails in Dallas.
Trinity Trails - Fort Worth
With over 100 miles of trails, where do we begin? Maybe Trinity Park or perhaps Airhead Falls Trailhead? There are so many places to explore, you might want to take the whole weekend to bike this trail. There are even restaurants along Trinity Trails to stop at when the crew gets hungry!
White Lake Park Trail - Dallas
This is one of Dallas’ most popular trails and for good reason. Circling the beauty of White Lake Rock, this 9.3-mile trail is great for families; there are several playgrounds along the way, as well as Mockingbird Point Dog Park.
Rowlett Creek Preserve - Rowlett
This incredible nature preserve boasts 15+ miles of dirt trails, but don’t be scared! Much of it is very flat, so take your budding mountain bike rider out for a day of exploring. There are also picnic tables, so pack a lunch!
Allen Parkway Loop - Allen
This paved trail is 14 miles long and wanders through Rowlett Creek and Cottonwood Creek. Part of a greater trail system, this is a fun bike path to ride with the kids.
Santa Fe Trail - Dallas
One of the newer paved trails in Dallas, this 5-mile trek connects White Rock Lake to Deep Ellum, Fair Park and downtown Dallas.
