MAP (Produced by DORBA riders and trail steward):
Go north on 75 to McKinney and take exit 41 and a right on HWY 380. After about 14 miles you will take a left on CR559 (you can't miss it, It is the bridge in the middle of a bridge on Lake Lavon). Go north on HWY 78 to Farmersville and at the intersection of HWY 380 and HWY 78 head west on HWY 380. Go about 3 miles you will take a right on CR559 (you can't miss it, it is bridge in the middle of a bridge on Lake Lavon). Follow the signs to Sister Grove Park.
Single Track - 4 Loops: #1 Puppy Loop, #2 Safari Loop, #3 Lake Loop, #4 Sister Loop (ends at parking lot).
There is a newly constructed bypass from the near-end of Puppy Loop, that splits Safari and Lake. This can be used to go from Puppy to Safari start (soon to be marked) or to ride the majority of Lake Loop (bypassing the first leg starting from the HUB or Corp of Engineers sign). The main purpose of the bypass is access for trail crews and rescue/assistance. You can ride it but use caution as it intersects the normal trail. All loops run CLOCKWISE.
Distance: 8 Miles
Trail Description A great trail near the town of Farmersville, in a county park full of refreshing green trees and grass. You might spot small animals like tortoises, rabbits, and various birds. Sometimes wild flowers bloom along the trail. This is a popular spot for photography (nature photography, wedding photography, portraits).
The trail starts at the sidewalk going left from the trailhead restroom building. It follows the Puppy Dog Loop for about 1.5 miles. This is the easiest and shortest loop. It comes out at the Corp of Engineers sign which marks the trail junction of the 4 loops. We have done much trail work in the last year and now have 4 loops (splitting the two original loops and adding some new features), Puppy, Safari, Lake, and Sister loops.
Direction of travel:
Watch for hikers and dog-walkers.
