A 3.5 mile paved continuous trail through Midtown/Uptown Dallas' more affluent areas. Great year around access, primarily for residents in the adjacent neighborhoods or the townhouses/condos/apartments lining the trail. The trail is well marked, but poorly lighted. It is patrolled by police on bike, but (my opinion!) they poorly encourage trail courtesy. The trail is more appropriate for runners, joggers... More

The trial is close to the dallas city downtown, the end of the trail connects to AA center. Trail is good, but there are better trail, such as white rock lake trail.

Whether your visiting or moving here, get as close to the trail as you can. It's a great place to get out and get your morning exercise in, but be sure to bring some cash. The Knox/Henderson area is a great place to shop and you can end up at the Katy Trail Ice House for an ice cold brew.

This is a great find in Dallas. Great running trail. Although it makes me nuts to see people running with dogs especially in the summer. It is a little narrow and congested to bike.

This is a good trail, but as a cyclist I feel like this trail favors runners. If you are riding, this trail is more for a causal family ride, it isn't a place where you can ride fast.

Great paved greenway from downtown to highland park! It was busy with runners on an early weekday morning and felt very safe.

Wish my city had this. Loved the KATY trail. So clean and plenty of space for bikers, walkers, strollers and whatever. Lots of signs and markers and trail is connected to some hotels and condos. If you like long walks you found a gem !!!

As a runner, I look for a spot where the locals all go for their quality time; this is it! Great scenery and people watching.

Only found this on my last day in Dallas, and wished had found it sooner! Great escape from citylife. Long trail you can pick up round the side of the American Airlines Centre.. handy if your staying at the Fairmont. Used it for a long morning run. Really well maintained cuts through parks, neighbourhoods and has a few cafes alongside.... More
