This long delayed and much anticipated trail is nearing completion. A ribbon-cutting ceremony is scheduled for May 20, 2011 at 10:30 am in the parking lot of the Forest Lane DART rail station.
The Cottonwood Trail connects with the White Rock Creek Trail on the east side of central expressway near the DART rail bridge. From the White Rock Creek Trail, it runs north behind the Forest Lane DART station, under Forest Lane, through Willowdell Park and under the High-Five freeway interchange. It connects with an older section of trail along Mahan Road, which goes all the way to Spring Valley Road.
Here are a few photos taken in April.
