Need a breath of fresh air? Head to the Katy Trail (entrance at Knox St and Abbott Ave), a 3.5-mile route that winds through the city’s parks and unites a number of Dallas’ central districts, including Mockingbird, Highland Park, Uptown and West End. Popular with cyclists, dog walkers, inline skaters and joggers alike, it follows the path of the old Missouri-Kansas-Texas Railroad, which was known as the MKT, or the Katy. The trail has become such a popular jogging location that the Dallas Observer recently quipped: “The trains don’t run here any more… Dallas does.”
