Natural Awakenings Dallas -Fort Worth Metroplex Edition


KUDOS - DFW Discovery Trail

DFW Discovery Trail is the new name for a regional trail connecting the cities of Fort Worth, Dallas, Arlington, Grand Prairie and Irving, as chosen by the public and coordinataed by the North Central Texas Council of Governments. DFW Trinity Tail was the second choice.

When complete, the DFW Discovery Trail will run more than 66 miles. Ten years in the making, more than 50 miles of the trail are now complete and open. A ribbon-cutting is targeted for early 2024. Survey participants shared local destinations along the trail that they felt were important to showcase, as well signage indicating places where residents access the trail and how they can use it.

The trail is envisioned as a regional, state and national attraction for recreation, tourism and large events. The new logo will be customizable, allowing using different colors and/or animals for different trail segments passing through each of the five cities.
