All Trailheads are Open – but…

Nov 22 – At last the cool weather has arrived! The lake is at 488.02ft (3.98ft low), so all of the trail is above water. However, with the rain this past week, the trail is muddy. The trail has been mowed over much of its length, so the way should be clear and obvious now 😉 . CAUTION – A Corps contractor has been cleared the fenceline from Wilson Creek to Highland Park- Their work is complete, but the fenceline lane does contain wood debris and occasionally wire and metal debris. We don’t advise exploring the fenceline lanes.

Do Not Park on Rolling Meadows or side roads in St Paul

Parking horse trailers on Rolling Meadows Rd (which leads to the Collin Park picnic tables) or any of its side roads creates a safety and access hazard for the residents there.

Riders along Trinity Trail

Riders along Trinity Trail

The Trinity Trail Preservation Association (TTPA) was established in 1996 as a non-profit all-volunteer trail preservation organization.

Our main purpose is to maintain the 25.5 mile long trail on Corps of Engineers land on Lake Lavon and encourage hikers, joggers, nature lovers, photographers, and trail riders to use the scenic trail.

This multi-purpose trail offers a relaxing way to get close to nature without a long drive. On a weekend day you’ll find scout troops, nature lovers, horse back riders and families out for the day enjoying the trail. No wheeled vehicles or motorized vehicles are allowed on the trail.

Active Organization

In addition to maintaining the 25.5 mile long trail, the TTPA holds trail rides, cookouts, work days, educational events and fund-raising activities. The organization also works with area environmental groups, schools, scout troops and individuals to educate the public about parks, trails and recreational facilities in the north Texas area.
