INTRODUCING THE LOOP DALLAS

A 50-mile city-wide urban trail around the heart of Dallas, uniting communities with a shared public greenspace.

Imagine traveling from White Rock Lake to the Trinity Forest, around to the Trinity River, and then through Dallas’ urban core – ending up where you started – without ever leaving a trail. This is the future with The Loop Dallas.

The Loop Dallas is an urban trail connecting north, south, east and west Dallas in new, exciting ways. We’ve “looped” 39 miles of existing trails with 11 miles of newly built trails for a total of 50 miles of walk and bike trails. This urban trail will revitalize communities, connect neighbors to stunning lakefront views, amazing foodie finds, tranquil forests, farms for good and more.

Changing the Way Dallas Moves

The Loop Dallas will reconnect communities previously cut off from economic opportunities by transportation infrastructure. The result will be a more socially and economically resilient city.

My Dallas Trail Story

Dallas stands apart when you travel by trail. Each trail is an opportunity for people who live or work nearby to incorporate exercise and nature into their daily routine. Trails help walkers, runners and riders connect to parks and places to work, shop and dine without driving a car and a welcome break from the busy city life. Explore these stories and share your Dallas trail story with us.

“Trails are more to us than a nice-to-have perk in the city. A strong and viable trail system must be considered critical infrastructure for 21st Century City.”
