Bird's Fort Trail Park
Bird's Fort Trail Park is an impressive space regarded as a city park, but it's far more than the typical town square. The nearly 60-acre preserve wraps around the historic riverfront along the Elm Fork Trinity River. Just a five-minute drive north, the park includes a 1.5-mile trail suitable for walking, biking, and skating with ample opportunities to spot birds and other native wildlife.
California Crossing Trailhead
Find the California Crossing Trailhead right across the street, in the park of the same name. The long looping trails throughout provide a serene place for long walks and biking excursions. The wooded nature trails offer plenty to do to keep explorers busy for several hours. In addition, there are many natural spaces to enjoy picnicking and fishing.
Spring Trail Park
Farther north, about 2.5 miles from The Carolyn, Spring Trail Park is adjacent to the Luna Vista Golf Course and includes the Campion Trail. Over 22 miles of trails are suitable for walking, biking, and horseback riding along the river. Some sections are paved while others are dirt, and connect to other parks in the area. The park is well-known for flowers, turtles, and river-dwelling wildlife.
