Trinity River Kayaking
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.
The paddling trail from Trammell Crow Park to the chalk banks of McCommas Bluff Preserve is about 13 miles.
Destination Distance From Downtown
A slow meandering river besides the turbulent Dallas Wave.
Time To Complete
A plethora of boat ramps and parks dot the banks. Make a day trip out of it or get few hours on the river.
Consistent, year round water flow means these paddling trails are open all the time. Cooler weather makes the fall and spring more ideal times to paddle it. But, the lack of foliage does detract from the experience quite a bit.
