Southwest Crossing Trail
FUTS logoAbout the Trail
The north end of the trail follows Highland Mesa Drive, then veers away from the street through an open space tract. Just north of Interstate 40, the trail drops down a steep hillside to an underpass beneath the interstate that was originally used as a crossing for sheep herds. On the south side of the interstate the trail connects to the University Heights neighborhood.
