TrinityTrails.org is not affiliated with any of the government agencies involved with the building and maintenance of the Trinity Trails. TrinityTrails.org is an online organization for information, news and discussion of the Trinity Trails in Fort Worth, Texas. Its initial concept was simply to provide an online map resource for the trails since there wasn't (and isn't) one and because the printed trail maps are often not up-to-date with the latest trail additions and don't provide the level of detail available with an online map. Since then a blog and discussion forum have been added.
