Walk & Bike along the Trinity River.

Trinity River
Fort Worth from North

"The Trinity River
is a 710-mile long river that flows entirely within the U.S. state of Texas. . . its complete name is "La Santísima Trinidad" or the Most Holy Trinity."

So says the Wikipedia entry.

For Fort Worthians, it is available as everyone's backyard, though I have wondered why so few take advantage of it. There are some beautiful sections, so peaceful you would think that you are not in a city. The most visited area of the path, at the park at University and I30, is only a small section of the whole trail which, from that park, goes North to La Grange Field, around to the East just north of the Woodhaven area, and reaches south all the way to Benbrook Lake.

We like to pull off at Hulen at the Tom Thumb shopping center for refreshments and a coffee break at Starbucks.

Those interested in the future of the Trinity River and its development:

Great post. Our church has a Trinity trail bike ride planned for the 25th - starting from Trinity Park & ending @ the Blue Mesa on University for lunch & restorative margaritas. ;-)

1st time CPC has organized something like this - should be fun! :-)
