Forgo your morning treadmill session in favor of the beautiful Katy Trail, a 3.5-mile stretch of natural Texas scenery and paved running trail. The trail is popular among runners and walkers in the area because it is well maintained and features helpful mile markers every ¼ mile, and runners also comment that the Katy Trail feels safe due to the frequent police surveillance. There are no public restrooms along the trail, however, so locals recommend using the Reverchon Rec Center down the ramp from the Thompson Overlook or any of the friendly local businesses at either end of the trail.
The trail is considered a City of Dallas park, so it is open from 5 a.m. to midnight every day, giving you plenty of time to squeeze in a daily run. The Katy Trail also hosts a 5K run once every year.
