In North Fort Worth, the Marion Sansom Park can be found just south of Hwy 820 and Jacksboro Highway 199. This past weekend, I headed out to enjoy the beautiful weather (it was almost 70 degrees in January) with a couple of friends and their dogs. We had such a good time!
Marion Sansom is popular for mountain biking, hiking and trail running. You’ll find expansive views of the Lake Worth dam, a Love tree, waterfalls and great elevation changes. As someone who misses the mountains, elevation changes are phenomenal when found in North Texas!
This is definitely a popular place for mountain bikers and a great place to just feel like you’ve gotten completely away from the city life With about 10+ miles of trails, you could spend a solid morning or afternoon here. A few concerns about the park, there’s a few places with lots of broken glass so be careful and the elevation in a few spots are quite steep with lots of loose rocks. The trail signs could be marked better so definitely go with someone who has been before or check out the map before hand online.
