Go Biking on These Dallas-Fort Worth Trails

Dallas Biking Trails

When our real estate agents are asked why they recommend moving to the Dallas-Fort Worth area, they often mention the region's outdoor amenities. The DFW has so many lovely natural areas where you can enjoy wildlife and beautiful plants. One of the best ways to enjoy these natural areas is by riding a bike. Whether you're a casual bike rider or a more serious cyclist, here are some of the top DFW bike trails to visit.

Katy Trail: 3505 Maple Ave., Dallas, TX 75219
The Katy Trail runs north from Reverchon Park on Maple Avenue to Knox Street. You can park either in Reverchon Park or in the smaller lot on Knox Street, just after the intersection with Travis Street. 

This trail is paved, smooth, and well-maintained. At 3.5 miles long, it's suitable for casual bike rides and walks. Motorized vehicles are not permitted, and pets must be leashed. The Katy Trail was built on an abandoned railroad bed. You'll pass through wooded areas, meadows, and even a few neighborhoods.

Santa Fe Trail: 302 S. Glasgow Dr., Dallas, TX 75219
The Santa Fe Trail is another wide, paved bike path built on an old railroad bed. You can park in the lot at the Glasgow Dr. address listed above. The trail stretches about 4.2 miles from S. Hill Ave. to Winstead Dr.

The Santa Fe Trail stretches mostly through rural areas, making it a good choice if you need a break from looking at Dallas homes for sale. You'll pass White Rock Lake, where you can see water birds and often frogs. There are a few small hills along the trail, but it's mostly flat.

Gateway Park: 1701 N. Beach Street, Fort Worth, TX 76111-5943
Gateway Park is the perfect place to stop for a bike ride while looking at Fort Worth homes for sale. This 1,000-acre park has a series of mountain biking trails running through it. The Trinity Trail, which is a 100-mile trail system, also stretches through the park.

Beginner mountain bikers may want to try the trails on the west side of they park. This trail is 3.5 miles long and is relatively flat. More advanced mountain bikers may enjoy the east side trails, which are longer and hillier. 

Trinity River Audubon Center: 6500 Great Trinity Forest Way, Dallas, TX 75217
The Great Trinity Forest is one of the most beautiful forests in the DFW area. One of the best ways to see it is to ride the trails at the Trinity River Audubon Center. These trails run for miles through the 6,000-acre forest, offering stunning views of the river and trees.

There is a small admission charge to access these trails. The funds are used to maintain the Audubon center, trails, bathrooms, and other facilities.  

Harry Moss Park: 7601 Greenville Ave., Dallas, TX 75231
Harry Moss Park contains a 5.6-mile mountain bike trail that stretches along White Rock Creek. This is a great trail to ride on hot days as the water keeps temperatures a bit cooler. There are a few hilly sections, but the trail is beginner-friendly overall. You'll ride over a few small bridges.

The Harry Moss Park trail does welcome walkers and hikers, too. So if you want to see the scenery but don't have your bike with you, just go for a walk.

Don't hesitate to contact us if you're still looking for a home to buy. We'd love to help guide your search.
