Whether you're hiking or biking, Katy Trail is one of the the supreme paved paths for getting your outdoor fitness on in Dallas. Winding its way through popular enclaves of Downtown and Uptown, it attracts athletes and outdoor enthusiasts of all stripes with a magnetic energy—even if you're more the type to enjoy a shady stroll over an all-out sprint, this place is great for people-watching! Find a perch along the trail (ideally near Highland Park and the restaurants on Knox Street), and take in the sights as cyclists, runners, and walkers pass you by.

A Bit of Green in the Concrete Jungle
No trip to Dallas would be complete without a walk or run down the Katy Trail. Inside the concrete jungle of Dallas sits the Katy Trail, a bamboo-lined pedestrian walkway that spans three and a half miles from the American Airlines Center to the SMU campus. The Katy Trail is also the perfect place for people watching in Dallas. You will see people out and about of all ages and walks of life running, walking, biking, and rollerblading to start or finish out their day.
