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.
