Review: Very technical rocky riding on this trail. Some tough climbs made very worthwhile with blazing decents. Great use of available terrain plus lots of route options.

Review: This trail makes you work for it. Tight twisty loose, sudden steep climbs that require the rear wheel stay planted or you're sure to spin out, no long climbs but they are tough in a techy sort of way, and steep. Hard to carry speed. Dry and loose keeps the riders attention. Its fun, a good work out, kind of short, but if you live in the area a good resource to have. The lone wolf section has some fast run outs and jumps. Nice bermed corners. A section named dam drop is really fun, very fast, bermed turns a few drops and a few good whoops to send ya airward. A very nice map at the trail head helps, the navigation is still very confusing, as multiple loops extend off main loop, and there are by passes and wet weather ride arounds.

Review: Consists of two main trails. The white trail and the red trail also called Lone Wolf. Lots of rocks and roots. I would consider it intermediate on the white to expert on the red.

Review: More difficult than expected. The red trail climbs are really brutal. You would go downhill for a bit and bam you're hit with another hill or climb that includes hairpin turns and roots. Not a beginners trail. I would say the red trail is for experienced intermediate or advanced riders. There are some sections that flow but not a lot. I took the trail on my 27.5" bike, this trail really gives you a work out I had to stop and catch my breath a few times, the climbs seemed endless! Great views of the lake when you get up to the higher sections though. Overall a great trail with good amount of technical stuff. The trail could use some maintenance as it has some trash, i would say due to hikers. The markers for the red trail weren't too bad, but I did get confused and backtracked a couple times where the trail split with no marker. I didn't get a chance to take the beginner trails. I also rode two days after it rained so there was some muddy areas for me. Good luck, it won't be easy!

Review: I don't know how this trail is rated 96th in the state?! This trail is the biggest challenge in the DFW area. It could be marked better, but overall this trail is awesome. Definitely not for beginner riders, but if you have been riding for a few years, then you will absolutely love this trail. Definitely a challenge, but also fun. There are some really tough climbs and a few technical, rocky descents. Everything to give the intermediate to advanced rider all the challenge he/she wants. I personally think this trail is as good as any I have ridden in the state. As good as the Austin area, and other places. Great trail!

Review: Fun trail system inside the city limits. Best ridden clockwise. Overall a good XC type trail system, there are some steep sections, and a few root/rock drops. I would rate the trails as mostly intermediate with the easiest being the "white" trails on the south side. The "red" trails on the north side have seen some recent work, and are a blast for the more advanced rider ( berms, drops, rollers, fast sections) When I rode the trails were very dry,and loose. As I was running 26 in 2.1 tires I spent half the time wishing I had more tire. With the light colored tread, and a lot of reflectors in the trees, it makes a great night time ride.

Review: The terrain is fairly challenging compared to other local trails i've ridden. There is a good amount of climbing so bring your legs. The trail is not marked really well but I think riding it a few more times will make it easier to find an exit. Overall its a great trail system.
