What is National Trails Day?
Every year, people across the U.S. join together in visiting their favorite trail for a walk, run or bike ride in observance of “National Trails Day.”
Our event hopes to get residents out and moving on our A-train Rail Trail to enjoy the incredible benefits it provides for recreation, exposure to nature and access to our five A-train stations.

“National Trails Day” event is a great opportunity for Denton County residents to celebrate DCTA’s A-train Rail Trail by connecting them to others in the community and encouraging them to walk, bike, run or just spend time enjoying the beautiful scenery the trail has to offer.

Get a Free DCTA A-train Ride
We will also provide free A-train rides to all “National Trails Day” event attendees on Saturday, June 1! Getting a free train ride is simple — just say the event code word “Trails Day” to a DCTA rail operator to ride the A-train free all day. We will operate regular A-train service during the event and the free ride promotion is not valid on other DCTA services. Riders who want to transfer to the Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) will need valid fare for that portion of that trip.
