All proceeds benefit The Trinity Strand Trail and The Mavs Foundation.
In 2002, a group of dedicated individuals formed the Friends of the Trinity Strand Trail to spearhead the planning, construction, and enhancement of a 7.8-mile non-motorized hike and bike trail along the original Trinity River watercourse. The Trinity Strand Trail is located in the heart of the Dallas Design District. This trail will connect the Katy Trail to the Trinity River and also provide Dallas citizens access to the Southwestern Medical District, Dallas Market Center, downtown and Uptown Dallas, Stemmons Corridor businesses and the Dallas Design District. Trinity Strand Trail also plays an integral role in connecting various trails, neighborhoods, and communities in Dallas. Once our project is complete, we will help with connecting over 73 miles of trail in DFW.
