9 Best City Walk Trails in United States

New York, NY: The High Line

New York needs green space due of its density. Answer: the High route, an elevated park above a decommissioned rail route. With elevators and access points around NYC's west side and sites like the Whitney and Hudson Yards.

Los Angeles, CA: Ernest E. Debs Regional Park

Ernest E. Debs Regional Park is the best of Los Angeles' trails and parks due to its choose-your-own-adventure possibilities and downtown LA vistas.

Chicago, IL: The 606

The 606, a Chicago elevated park, was converted from a train like New York's High Line. In the summer, it connects Logan Square, Humboldt Park, Bucktown, and Wicker Park.

Houston, TX: Houston Arboretum Outer Loop Trail

Walkers who want a broad, level surface might use the Outer Loop Trail around the Houston Arboretum. It is a great day excursion for families with kids when combined with the arboretum it rounds.

Philadelphia, PA: Forbidden Drive

Cars were banned from Forbidden Drive decades ago, thus its moniker. All the green land along Wissahickon Creek is now a lovely park on Philadelphia's northwest side.

Phoenix, AZ: Double Butte Loop

Both beginners and experts may walk Double Butte Loop, which has a mild inclination. Interacting with Phoenix's desert flowers and Saguaro cactus is the attraction.

San Antonio, TX: Red Oak Trail

The Red Oak Trail in San Antonio offers a unique glimpse of the area's oak savanna ecosystem before settlement. It's less popular than other local paths, so it's nice for a peaceful hike.

San Diego, CA: Torrey Pines State Reserve Loop

One of the nation's most beautiful paths is 30 minutes from downtown San Diego. After a hard trek to the top of a hill, visitors may see the Pacific Ocean.

Dallas, TX: White Rock Lake Trail

You could walk the White Rock Lake Trail's nearly 10 miles in one day, but it's better for long-term hikers. This circle in North Dallas has a huge dog park, an Audubon Society bird viewing facility, and the Dallas Arboretum.
