FRIENDS OF NORTHAVEN TRAIL

 

The Northaven Trail is a commuter and recreational bike and hike trail built and maintained by the Dallas Parks and Recreation Department.  The Trail currently runs through the Oncor power line easement that is between Northaven Road and Royal Lane, and from Cinderella Lane to Denton Drive.  The trail’s master plan runs from Central Expressway to Denton Drive with plans to connect to the White Rock Creek Trail on the east and Irving’s Campion Trail on the west.  There will also be connections to DART’s Forest Lane Station and Walnut Hill / Denton Station. The Western Expansion will wrap up in 2019, and the eastern expansion will begin in 2020!

Friends of the Northaven Trail is a volunteer organization for the support, maintenance and beautification of the Northaven Trail.

Northaven Trail in the News!

Watch Channel 11’s story about how the Trail will enable people to get from Central Expressway all the way to Love Field. Note: The Trail will end at the Walnut Hill/Denton Drive DART station.


Reminder: the western portion of the Northaven Trail is an active construction area and should not be walked or cycled on. Heavy equipment is being used so this part of the trail is dangerous and off limits.
