    Question DFW: High 5 trail?

    Has anyone else spotted the trail under and around the high 5? I'll see if I can't get a pic. Done a couple searches and can't find anything on it. This is right by my house so I'll see if I can't stroll by tomorrow.

    I think it is there to make it easier for emergency responders to get to successful jumpers.

    I noticed it while exiting LBJ to 75. I even asked my wife if she had heard anything about it connecting to any other MUP's.

    Let us know what you find.
    That's gonna leave a mark.

    Are you talking about this?
    Cottonwood trail


    The Dallas County and The City of Dallas Park & Rec Departments are holding a stakeholders task force meeting on Thursday, June 21 at 10:00am at the Willie B Johnson Rec Center @ 12225 Willowdell Drive, Dallas, TX. (that's the souteast corner area of the High 5). I will be there.

    Where is your house Stray Cat? I work in the Prosperty Bank building. One of the ugly brown ones.

    If anyone has 6.5M to donate to the online donation, we can get this done quick.

    I've decided that if and when I make it big and I have cash that needs to be donated, I'm gonna throw money at bike trails and the like.

    Yep, that would be it. Too bad it'll take years to be fully finished.

    What a depressing read.
    The issue of "alternative" transportation gets a little more attention every time the price of gas goes up. However, don't hold your breath on any progress actually being made in a reasonable amount of time.
    That's gonna leave a mark.
