ABOUT THE KATY TRAIL

The Friends of the Katy Trail organization is the principal fundraiser for the Trail. Through generous donations and private support from businesses and individuals, the Katy Trail remains in peak condition for residents and visitors alike to enjoy Dallas’ beautiful, natural trail.
