This trail system in the Southern part of Dallas is getting into the best terrain we have to offer. From here and further South, is where we have our only hilly terrain. It is taken advantage of here for sure with the tight, wooded runs being fairly fast. Again, not saying they're fast compared to Rocky Mountain trails or other mountainous areas, but for Dallas, they're fairly fast. Also, a bit more technical with multiple creek crossings, rocky hill climbs and descents. Add in the random roots to maneuver and if you're not paying attention, you're walking up some climbs that you might normally make...maybe walking down a few descents as well on your first few times until you scope out a good line or two. Again, not for the beginner, but a nice, tight intermediate trail system here that is about 10 minutes from downtown Dallas. Some complain about the neighborhood...it's not that bad. It's in an older industrial area and yes, there are things that go on here, but you want trails in urban areas, right? I'm fine here. But then again, I love Oak Cliff.
