Outdoor Itinerary

Looking for adventure in whatever comes your way? There is more than enough room to let your inner outdoorsman roam free in Fort Worth.


Take in the fresh air with a morning walk, run or bike ride along the Trinity Trails, offering over 100 miles of trails connected to 21 parks, Downtown Fort Worth, the Stockyards National Historic District and beyond.

If the water feels more like home, rent a canoe or kayak. After your senses have awoken, lace up the hiking boots and explore more than 20 miles of trails at the Fort Worth Nature Center and Refuge. Watch for deer, bison, armadillo and prairie dogs in the 3,600-acre center, one of the largest of its kind in the United States. Jump back on the Trinity Trails and head for lunch at Woodshed Smokehouse whose outdoor patio offers a scenic view of the Trinity River and walk-up access.

Wander over to the Fort Worth Cultural District and visit the Fort Worth Botanic Gardens. Guests will enjoy the view of the oldest botanic garden in Texas, offering 109 acres and 23 specialty gardens that are home to more than 2,500 species of native and exotic plants.

Stroll through the Fort Worth Water Gardens, located across from the Omni Hotel in downtown, for a refreshing morning walk. This unique park spans over four acres and features three distinct pools: aerating, quiet and active. Head north to the Stockyards National Historic District for the twice-daily cattle drive, and then refuel on anything from barbecue to authentic Mexican food. After lunch, saddle up at the Stockyards Stables for horseback rides along the Trinity River. 

Explore Sundance Square atop a Fort Worth B-Cycle rental. There are 300+ Trek bicycles and e-bikes available for checkout from 46 docking stations located throughout the city. Later on, catch a flick on one of the three screens at Coyote Drive-In
