Designating 130 miles of the Trinity River in DFW Area as a National Recreation Trail with plans to extend to the Gulf


The Trinity Coalition is dedicated to elevating the Trinity River, its parks and forests, as one of the most valued natural assets in Texas. Our mission is to transform the Trinity River Corridor into a nationally-recognized conservation and recreation area.

The Trinity Coalition is supporting the Designation of 130 miles of the Trinity River by the National Park Service as a National Recreation Trail. Provide the list of goals and their status. Bring awareness to the cities along the Trinity of this project and the benefit it will bring.

Increase the awareness of paddling trails and river access linking it to the bike and hiking trails and other recreation. Bring more awareness to the Trinity River. With more then 50% of the population in Texas close to the river. This will be a major low cost recreation trail. Create a paddling trail which will start in the DFW area and eventually extend to the Gulf of Mexico. Will increase the number and frequency on access points along with regular scheduled Clean-up projects and events.
