I love this section of the Trinity Trail system. It's dense with trees which makes it a cool, shady section to walk or run. My only complaint is the amount of bikers, but that's what you get at Trinity.

Best to ride a bike. Over several different visits i have road from benbrook lake to past the stockyards up to a park by Long Ave. I have also taken the branch that goes out by what use to be Carsewell AFB.

Some of the trail was closed off, so the hike was not as long as I had planned. Hopefully this will be completed soon.
