About the Trail

Privately funded and supported by the community, the historic Katy Trail is built on an old railroad line and has quickly become an iconic destination for the people of Dallas. 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.

What's Blooming

Chaste Tree

The Vitex Tree, commonly called Texas Lilac or Chaste Tree, has tiny, fragrant, lavender to pale violet flowers appearing in loose panicles (up to 12 inches long) in mid to late summer. The flowers are quite attractive to butterflies.

Black-Eyed Susan

Black-eyed Susans, beloved by pollinators, generally bloom from June to August, often blanketing open fields and trails with their golden-yellow beauty.

Crepe Myrtle

Crepe Myrtles, known for their showy summer blooms and multi-season appeal, are an ornamental tree or shrub that thrives in sunny landscapes.

Waxyleaf Privet

Waxyleaf Privet is a versatile evergreen with a compact habit and glossy green foliage. It displays a profusion of fragrant, white blooms in spring, and you will see bees all over its sweet blossoms.

Rose of Sharon

Hibiscus syriacus isn't a rose, but its large, flat blossoms and nectar attract hummingbirds and tiny insects that hummers also eat. The flowers on this woody shrub come in several colors, including white, pink, purple, and red.
