Details

This is a two mile clockwise loop for bikes, counter clockwise for foot traffic that winds around 25 acres of the park. It's fairly twisty and has numerous off camber ups and downs. It is not a technical trail but can be an aerobic challenge. A large white sign at the trailhead details the IMBA rules or the trail. Be a pal and follow the rules, we all win that way. Facilities include a beautiful pavilion complex with picnic table land BBQ grills as well as restrooms. There is also a concrete trails which totals approx. 2 miles. At present, work days are on an as needed basis.If you would like to be a "friend of the trail" or DORBA "super dude" please feel free to contact me by clicking on either my or my assistants username above, or visit our facebook page. Also this trail is frequently patrolled by the North Texas Mountain Bike Patrol, so if you get hurt or need help most likely they’ll be there.
