Review: Great trail for beginners or for getting in shape. Parts of the trail flow extremely well and if it were substantially longer I might give it a 4 rating. The problem is it is so short experienced riders will burn through the course in no time.

Review: First trail of the year and it kicked my butt. It is a short 2.2 mile but you definitely have to work for it. Wore me out pretty quickly with the long climbs. Very good and very local for me. This will be my every day trail.

Review: It's short but mighty. Lots of steep short climbs and annoying roots. So, as a beginner at the time I found it challenging but doable. It scared me a few times and I definitely burned some calories. Cool location for those living in Plano.

Review: Lots of big hills and obstacles. Be careful of the camber corners though. All and all a tough course for a small lung cappacity, but just enough to make you want more.

Review: This trail has some tight turns and plenty of roots. It doesn't take a long time to complete the trail but does provide a workout for your legs. You can easily make several trips through in one afternoon. If you have a beginner in your group who can't make it all the way to the end, there is a wide path through the middle of all the switch-backs for an easy exit. Watch out for joggers!

There is also a wide concrete bike/hike path right next to this mountain bike trail. You can ride the trail while your partner takes the small kiddos on the concrete path - familiy friendly park :)

Review: I'm a new rider I went here on my second run out with the new bike. The trail is pretty fun and I find it tough on the legs but that may be because I just started. You can get some speed, a lot of tight turns, some fun down hills with rocks and branches all over the ground. The last half mile seems like you climb and climb and finally the legs take a rest you are done! I recommend you at least try it!!

Review: great 2.2 miles of sweet singletrack right in the middle of plano. take as many rounds as you can or want. nice place to take beginners. hikers go counter clockwise. eye candy is a plus in the paved paths all over the park.

Review: This is a very short, well maintained DORBA trail that has lots of sharp elevation changes. This trail is usually hardpack sandy clay with a dusty surface, very sensitive to rain. There are many clubs that use this as a night ride/racing trail. The parking lot is paved and there are picnic huts, bathrooms and water fountains provided by Plano. This is a very nice neighborhood, esp considering the surrounding area (NE Dallas). There is a Walmart nearby at 635 and Midway if you need any food, cheap tubes, or supplies for scratches and bruises.

Similar Trail: LB HOUston DORBA trail nearby at the National Guard Armory by Luna and I35.
