Trinity Skyline Trail

Like the Trinity Level Trail on the north side of the Trinity River, the Trinity Skyline Trail also boasts a soft surface (which can turn into a muddy road on a rainy day), a natural setting and a stunning skyline.

But Trinity Skyline Trail also have some advantage.

  • It has its own ample parking. Trail users can use the parking lot at the west end of the Continental Pedestrian Bridge
  • It is connected to the Continental Pedestrian Bridge, which has a stunning view.
  • It is next to the Trinity Grove that features the most trendy restaurants in Dallas.
  • For this out and back trail, you will have the skyline on the way back as the best motivation! However, the scale of the skyscrapers can be misleading. They may seem closer than they are in actual distance.

To get there, use the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge (choose Singleton Blvd lane on the right side), turn right onto Gulden Ln at the first traffic light once you are off the bridge. After driving about 400 yards, you will make a sharp right turn to get into the parking lot. See the picture below for parking instruction.

Here is a view from the start point. Notice, there is also a lower level trail for flood control engineers. We will only use the upper level, i.e. Trinity Skyline Trail, for our running purpose. Notice the soft gravel and dirt surface is available from the start. Your feet will thank you for choosing such a soft trail!

The trail can really go on for quite a while. Interestingly, if you turn around under Westmoreland Road Bridge, that out-and-back trail is exactly 6 miles. You will see something interesting along the way, from architecture to natural reserve....

After we finish running the trail, walking onto the Continental Pedestrian Bridge is a great way to do the final stretch and relax....
