Lavon Lake Trinity Trail for horseback riding and hiking

All trailheads are OPEN, but – Brockdale South is CLOSED

Jan 22 – Our newest re-route, south of Lakeview Downs is open! This re-route will bypass the locust valley, with a new trail at each end and using the ‘temp’ trail behind the homes on Snyder Lane as the connector. The trail has marker stakes at each end and we’ve flagged it with red surveyor tape all along the path. Once it is mowed, it will be clearer, but for now, follow the tape. There is a low-water crossing on the new trail that has a steep bank. If you are unwilling to try that, the old trail is still available. Once we install culverts at the crossing, we’ll close the old trail.

Dec 4 – Re-route north of Ford Lane is now open! Enjoy!

Nov 22 – All Trinity Trail trailheads are now OPEN. The Brockdale South trail is closed due to silt and water runoff from Inspiration 1/2 mile south of the trailhead. East Fork to 1 mile south of Brockdale has now been mowed. Follow the mower tracks to get around some of the new Inspiration obstacles. Highland Park South to Lucas trailbed is still overgrown with tall grasses, so use your pioneer skills to follow the trailbed where it’s not obvious. Highland Park North is mowed all the way to the Sycamore. Brockdale North is mowed to Lucas Rd. Be cautious if you ride after it rains.

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.
