Load up the bikes, pack the bags, and get ready for a fun weekend exploring west Fort Worth. We are going to park the car or RV and explore by bike. The bike path is appropriate for all ages. It’s wide, flat, and paved for just about everywhere we are going. So, pack appropriately and let’s go.

If you have an RV, call Midtown RV Park and make a reservation. If not, reserve a room at the Marriott Residence InnFairfield Inn is a nice alternative. Everything we plan on doing is close to each of these locations. That will make it easy to ride your bike less than 5 miles.

Trinity Trails: Accessible From Any Fort Worth Location

We like to plan this trip around some other event that is happening nearby. For example, Mayfest on the Trinity River, a rodeo, or some other event at Will Rogers Coliseum. You can also enjoy some good music at Sundance Square, or a good play at Casa Manana. Check the City of Ft Worth’s website to find some events of interest.

Trinity Trail is about two blocks from Midtown RV Park, or a block from either of the hotels. Perfect for biking, walking, or rollerblading, Trinity Trails offers 30 miles of paved and mostly flat trails. You can catch Trinity Trails (817-871-PARK) practically anywhere from Northside Drive and Samuels to Foster Park, just north of I-20. Depending on where you are staying, you can catch the trail on the north or south side of Trinity Park. Along the way, Trinity Trails winds through Heritage Park, Trinity Park, and Overton Park.

Here is the link to a map of the trails.

Favorite Things To Do On Saturday

For are our favorite things to see and do on a bicycle on Saturday, we’ll give you two options.

Option 1:

Will Rogers Memorial Center
  • Start the morning by heading to the Fort Worth Cultural District – If you’re staying at the hotel, follow the Trinity Trail to 7th Street. If you’re staying at Midtown RV Park, bike to 7th and go west a few blocks. You can spend a day or multiple hours here and some of the sights include:
Museum of Science and History
Kimbell Art Museum
  • Restaurants – There are a few restaurants (Mexican, Italian, Chinese, fast food, and seafood) around 7th and University near Midtown RV Park. There are also some bigger restaurant chains (Chili’s, Macaroni Grill, Hofbrau Steaks, and more) near the hotels if you get hungry.
Equestrian Center

Option Two For Saturday:

  • Enjoy the a special event – Take the Trinity Trails along the river to downtown and spend some time at Sundance Square. Take in a special event, check out the shops, sample some great food, and enjoy the nightlife around the square. Some of our favorites include: dinner or appetizers on the roof of Reata, a play at the Bass Performance Hall, sample the beers at Flying Saucer, or dance the night away at Billy Bob’s.
  • Bike over to and spend the day at some special event happening downtown – These may include the Main Street Arts Festival, or whatever is going on at the convention center.

Other Things to See and Do in Fort Worth

Of course, after all this exercise, or just because you like to party, you’ll need to enjoy some of the nightlife and the local haunts within 3 blocks of 7th and Currie. Check out and hang out at: Fred’s, 7th Heaven, 6th Street, The Shamrock Pub, Chimys, or the Bronx Zoo Sports Cafe.

Keep in mind that these are local joints. When we stay at Midtown RV Park, we ride bikes or it’s an easy walk to any of them.
