I hope you have been staying warm through our cold snaps. As I’ve ridden the trails throughout the winter months, I’ve thought about our vision for The LOOP and how it will change the way Dallas moves and connect communities.

The LOOP will open access in areas where green space and alternative transportation are needed most. It will bridge geographic and economic barriers that have isolated neighborhoods and connect people to places to shop, dine, play, learn and even receive care.

Today there are local businesses and resources an easy walk from the trails that will become part of The LOOP like:

  • Mahal Eating. A popup kitchen on the rise. An Asian-owned business near University Crossing and Ridgewood Trail. Instagram, @mahaleating.
  • Bike Mart. Blazing a trail since 1962. Bike Mart is the largest family-owned bike retailer in Texas off the White Rock Lake Trail.
  • The Dallas Arboretum. A City of Dallas treasure along the White Rock Lake Trail.
  • Restorative Farms. Planting seeds of justice. A 501(c)3 that sits along the Trinity Forest Spine Trail.
  • Bonton Farms. Investing in soil and souls. A 501(c)3 close to the Trinity Forest Trail.
  • Kessler Baking Studio. A Black-owned business close to the Skyline Trail.
  • Kate Weiser Chocolate. Making the trail sweeter. A woman-owned business along the Skyline Trail.
  • Leche De Café. Where things are brewing. A Latina-owned coffee café near the Santa Fe Trail.

The LOOP will give Dallas residents access to the benefits and opportunities of the entire city by connecting key neighborhoods with trails and active transportation. As you can see on the illustrated map, these businesses and so many other major features of Dallas will be truly connected for the first time.

Construction is continuing on the first phase of the Trinity Forest Spine Trail and we’ll soon announce the date of the groundbreaking for the Hi-Line Connector. 2022 will be an exciting year as the first trails under construction are completed and people can then explore their neighboring communities in a new way.

See you on the trails!
