During this time of social isolation, we are all trying to stay as active as possible. While for most of us that means either walking or running down your street after seeing the same thing for 3 weeks it can get harder and harder to motivate yourself to go out there and do it. Well luckily for us here in Fort Worth we have several trails that are still open and available to use while still practicing social distancing. So instead of running the same route for the 20th time in a row try one of these trails, make a day out of it and have an adventure!
These are the trail options for all over the Fort Worth area ranging from 1 mile to 25 miles. They also have the trails ranked for their level of difficulty!
