  2. The Trinity River cuts through the west side of downtown Dallas, Texas and meanders through the Great Trinity River Forest—an area of relatively untouched old wood forest growth. A plethora of boat ramps and parks dot the banks. These paddling trails are perfect for city dwellers looking for a day trip.

    A plethora of boat ramps and parks dot the banks. Make a day trip out of it or get few hours on the river.
  3. The views that the river provides coming out of the Lake Worth dam are unlike any other. The towering sky scrapers of downtown Fort Worth peak above the steep banks over the river, and as you paddle closer to the city they appear to come out of nowhere.

  5. The Brazos River south of Possum Kingdom Lake has beautiful bluffs and a more narrow channel. Paddling the Brazos River makes a great weekend adventure for anyone looking to get away from the city and camp on a sand bar. Striped bass, painted buntings, mule deer, and the desert cottontail all make their home along the Brazos River which runs 840 miles diagonal across much of the state of Texas.
