All Trailheads are Open – but…

Oct 7 – At last the cool weather has arrived! The lake is at 487.8ft (4.2ft low), so all of the trail is above water. However, there is still flood debris on the trail in many places and tall grass in others. CAUTION – A Corps contractor has been clearing the fenceline from Wilson Creek to Highland Park- this week they are working between Ford Lane and Highland Park. Be very cautious approaching the machinery, it can throw debris quite far and quite fast. We’ve installed directional signs where needed north of Ford Lane; when the contractor is done, we’ll add any additional needed signs south of Ford Lane.

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.
