There is too much rain in the forecast Saturday morning, so we’re cancelling the planned ride. However, if we don’t get too many inches of rain, the trail should be useable within a day or two afterwards, so enjoy!!

Time to Renew TTPA Membership

It is that time of year for Membership Renewal. The annual cost for the family membership is $35 and the membership year starts over on Jan 1. (You can renew in Dec for 2023.)

Here are two easy ways to renew:

Renew online through PayPal on the TTPA web site under the How to Join tab.
Print out a membership form (found at under the “how to join tab) and mail the form and your payment to:
Sharon Berryman
2 Woodview Ct
Lucas, TX 75002

Your TTPA membership includes:

TTPA Newsletter – Here’s where you get a recap of what’s going on with the trail. Our newsletter arrives in your inbox and lets you know about upcoming events. In addition to the newsletter, we have an active Facebook page ( and website (

Monthly trail rides – a great way to meet new riding buddies and to socialize with longtime friends. It is not required to ride to join in…many members come out to visit or enjoy chuck wagon meals that we often have as part of our rides. In addition to the trail rides, we host clinics and fun events for you and your horse.

CareFlite ( TTPA members qualify for a discount in the Careflite membership fee. TTPA members will be provided a link to the Careflite application form (on the Careflite website) that provides a discounted Careflite membership fee of $25. This benefit is good both on and off the trail in the DFW metroplex. If an accident occurs, call 911 and ask specifically for CareFlite.

Almost every month we have work parties, normally scheduled on a Saturday, where we work on the trail to keep it maintained…anything from weed eating around the rest areas, trimming tree limbs to putting in new culverts across the ditches. Work days are important to maintain the trail in good condition. Work parties are strictly volunteer, but we encourage all members to participate when they can. When we are working on a Grant project at the trail, our volunteer hours are extra important as the hours count as money against the “matching funds” Grants that we have received.

Membership in a non-profit organization that allows you to give back and make the world a better place. Trinity Trail gives you a location where you can relax and enjoy nature – but that doesn’t happen by itself. Your membership strengthens the organization to ensure there will be a trail in the future. We appreciate your support and hope you will become more involved.

Thank you again for your membership support of the TTPA.

We look forward to riding and hiking with you on the trails!!
