All Trailheads are Open – but…

July 25 – Hope you all had an enjoyable 4th of July. The lake is at 491.5ft, so all of the trail is above water. However, there is still flood debris on the trail in many places, and there are several downed trees across the trail bed. Most of those downed trees have a passable path around them. We’ll try and get to the impassable ones as quickly as possible.

Quick update – there is one tree down on Highland South that completely blocks the trail, between White Rock Creek and Lakeview Downs. For a bypass, when going south, after the big meadow and just as you come out of the trees, look for pink ribbons tied to a break in the tree line. The bypass runs parallel to the trail, on Corps land. The bypass ends back on the trail at the brown marker that says 5.5 miles to Brockdale, marked with pink ribbons in the tree line.

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.
