Nate Smithson

An avid cyclist, Nate wanted to give back to the trail he used so much, with the goal of making it “easier and safer to cycle around Dallas.” So, he joined the Friends Board of Directors where he makes sure projects are thoroughly conceptualized and completed. Nate likes the turn under the abandoned railway (by Tenison Park) and describes it as “lush and cool and is either the start or the end (depending on direction) of one of our little hill climbs.” His favorite memory on the trail is pulling his kids in a chariot behind his bike to the Lindsley Park playground, and he hopes many more people create memories on the trail: “The trail covers so much ground and such a diverse landscape. I want people to see how great it is, and to want to use it on a regular basis not just for exercise, but also for transportation.”
