The 3.5 mile Katy Trail meanders along the former M-K-T Railroad, featuring a 12 ft. wide concrete path for bicycles and 8 ft. wide soft surface running path. The trail currently extends from Airline Dr. just south of SMU area to American Airlines Center.
With over a dozen public entrances and several others under construction the trail is easily accessible to residents from Victory Park, Knox Henderson, Uptown and West Village. Several of the apartment and loft communities have private access gates, which gives those residents a great place to bike, walk their dogs, or get in a run after work. Though the Katy Trail is a city park it is maintained and improved entirely with private funds.
