Scott Griggs pushed for the completion of trails surrounding Kiest Park, when it was part of his district, early in his city council tenure.

On the southern end, Kiest Park meets the Kiestwood Trail, and that trail could connect to The Loop at Glendale Park eventually.

Earlier this year, Griggs held a grand opening for a $619,781 extension from Kiest Park along Rugged Drive to Elmwood Park, which included a pedestrian bridge over Cedar Creek.

Imagine a future where it would be possible to ride a bike from Elmwood Boulevard to the Great Trinity Forest and on to White Rock Lake and beyond, completely on trails and bike lanes.

Bicycling Magazine in 2012 named Dallas the worst bicycling city in America. The Loop could change all that, says Ellerman.

“We can have something that no one else has,” he says. “A 50-mile bike loop at the core of our city. It’s transformational.”
