The Trinity Trails are part of the Trinity River in Fort Worth

The Trinity Trails — concrete and crushed granite paths that follow the Trinity River — are yet one more tremendous benefit to Fort Worth living.

If you have ever been to Austin and seen the vibrant gatherings of walkers, joggers, or cyclists along Town Lake, you will have a glimpse of what the Trinity Trails strive to become.

In recent year numerous shops, restaurants, outdoor venues and residential establishments have popped up throughout the Fort Worth fully taking advantage of the natural beauty of the Trinity River and trails.

(Assuming the federal government bails out one grossly over-budgeted project involving the Trinity River, in time there will be even more commerce along the Trails — but let’s get into political graft, greed, and nepotism at a later date)

Beautiful views of the river and easy access to the Trinity Trails make River Heights a highly desired community.

LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is a designation from the U.S. Green Building Council to promote and encourage home builders and owners to be environmentally responsible and efficient with their home. But what does that really mean?  Well it means this is an uber energy-efficient home filled with sustainable materials from nearby areas that not only are eco-friendly, they’re really cool as well.
