Campion Trail Usage Soars
City Working to Connect Master-Planned Greenbelt with Regional Trail System
Between March 2020 and March 2021, use of the City of Irving’s Campion Trail system increased by over 300 percent.
In 2019, the City of Irving began placing counters throughout the Campion Trail system. The counters help monitor usage along the trail system. Resident and visitor use of the outdoor trails surged as many indoor gyms and recreational facilities were closed during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020.
While trail use is subject to weather conditions, much of Campion is available for recreational use. From cycling to running to roller skating and walking, Campion Trail offers a safe, healthy outdoor workout experience along the Trinity River.
In the future, Campion also will tie-into the Fort Worth to Dallas Regional Trail system, an initiative led by the North Central Texas Council of Governments. Once completed, the 64-mile paved trail will weave through five participating cities: Forth Worth, Arlington, Grand Prairie, Irving and Dallas.
