Frisco NW Community Park Trail

 

The Frisco NW Community Park Trail was opened in October 2012. It was built by volunteers from Shawnee Trail Cycling, Frisco Cycling and Dallas Off-Road Bicycle Association (DORBA) and is currently maintained by DORBA.  The City of Frisco owns the property, and all City of Frisco rules and regulations are applicable to this park.  The rules are posted at the trail head.

Ride at your own risk and helmets are highly recommended to be worn at all times while on the bike.

PLEASE DO NOT RIDE THE TRAIL WHEN IT IS CLOSED OR MUDDY as this causes damage to the trail.

Hikers and Runners will go clockwise from the trail head and cyclists will go counter clockwise from the trail head.

Cyclists will yield to all Hikers and Runners.
