We’ll have blankets, saddle pads, halters, bits, headstalls, saddles, and more! All at steeply discounted prices (we want this stuff to go to a good home).

So, if you missed it the first time, here’s your chance to help raise funds for TTPA!

All Trailheads are still CLOSED

June 6 – East Fork, Brockdale, and Highland Park are still closed, there is just too too much mud and the lake is at 8ft high and rising, so portions of the trail are under water. We’ll post when the trailheads are re-opened.

April 29 – Approx 3 miles south of Brockdale, a culvert has washed out and is impassable;
The low water crossing on the west side of the Sycamore loop is now a high water crossing (2+ft deep) and will remain so until a major logjam downstream is cleared. The crossing still has a firm bottom, it’s just deeper than it should be.

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.
