Once an abandoned railroad, the Katy Trail is now a 3.5-mile trail spanning from Southern Methodist University to the American Airlines Center. It provides both Dallas residents and guests with a beautiful place to walk, run, or bike their way through beautiful Texas scenery. With designated paths, mile markers, and a high level of cleanliness, the Katy Trail comes highly recommended by all.

Trailgoers can enter at Highland Park, Victory Park, or multiple places in between. As a resident of Camden Victory Park, you have direct access to the trail with Victory Promenade and Victory Overlook at your fingertips!

If the urban vibe is not for you, other Dallas Camden communities are not far from the famous trail.

It’s all about the journey...but it’s also about the detours! The Katy Trail offers great options to stop and sip a delicious drink, grab a bite to eat, or enjoy the views.

Katy Trail Ice House

The Katy Trail Ice House is a beer garden, restaurant, and the top place to be on any sunny day in Dallas. When walking up to it, you don’t wonder why it has been voted the best patio in Dallas before; you can just tell.

What you can’t tell right away, due to the 50 beers on tap distracting you, is that it is also home to the Best Margarita in Dallas. Games, good food, and delicious drinks keep those who score a seat at the Katy Trail Ice House more than content.
