About

Legacy Trail, officially opened in July 2019, is the newest trail to the City of Tyler. The 4.5 mile trail. The 10 foot wide concrete trail runs on the eastern and western sides of Old Jacksonville Highway; running Toll 49 and continuing toward Flint. The trail is situated on the Old Cotton Belt train route which was instrumental in the growth of East Texas. Future plans for this trail include a possible extension northward to the South Tyler Trails linking Rose Rudman Recreational Trail.

Route Plan for Legacy Trail

Tyler Legacy Trails


Plans for the Tyler Legacy Trail Project

Tyler's city leaders and area trails supporters have worked for years, along with TxDOT, to secure funding for an expanded regional biking and hiking trail system.

On July 12, 2016, the City of Tyler's half-cent sales tax board approved items related to a new Legacy Trails project, which would extend the city’s trail system to Gresham. Clearing of the overgrown right-of-way for the trails phase to Gresham began in January of 2018.

Today, in 2019, Phase I of Legacy Trails is open, starting at Three Lakes Parkway near FRESH by Brookshires, and proceeding south to Gresham, using sections of the old Cotton Belt railroad route along with city-owned right-of-way and utility easements along Old Jacksonville Highway. 

The City of Tyler officially opened the trail at a ribbon-cutting ceremony on July 22, 2019.

Another phase involves a trail from Three Lakes Parkway to the southeast, along Dueling Oaks, connecting with the new West Cumberland Road, allowing trail bikers and hikers to reach the Faulkner Park trails.

Future phases will also include the extension of the 10 foot-wide concrete trail from Three Lakes Parkway northward to the trail along West Grande Boulevard.
