Since Dallas is such a large and spread-out area, we’ve divided our guide to the ‘Metroplex’ into three sections: Central, incorporating downtown and the immediate suburbs; Suburbs, which includes Irving, Las Colinas, Richardson, Plano, Garland; and Fort Worth.

In North Dallas, we’ve found the best places for running in Plano, Richardson, and Garland. Among the highlights are the several multi-use paths, parks, and linear park trails. Also some nice residential neighborhood running in Richardson. West of downtown Dallas, there are some good parks and trails in Irvine, Grapevine, and Las Colinas. Trail runners will love Grapvine Lake.

See also our guides to central Dallas and Fort Worth for additional running options in the Metroplex.
