Review: I have been riding this trail for 2 years now and it's getting better every year. The local club spends good hours upgrading the trails and adds new features. It's guaranteed to make you a better rider with the constant climbs and nice drops! When all the sections are open be ready for a good ride.

Review: This is my home trail so I'm kinda bias... But I've ridden a lot of different trails in several states and I think Sansom park is one of the best. It's challenges both your skill and your fitness. Lots of climbing but rewarded with some great flow and downhill runs. Some of the best lake views in Fort Worth especially at sunset.

Review: Absolutely fantastic, especially the new "Klunky Town" Run. Best Downhill flow in Texas.

Review: This should be my "home trail" since it is 10 minutes from my house, but I don't ride here enough. Lots of rocky sections, lots. Fun climbs and descents.

Review: Now about 12 miles and improving all the time with lots of new berms and small jumps. The main loop, the White Loop, has a few bypasses, some to shorten the ride and others to prolong it and raise the difficulty (Joel's and JoJo's). The more challenging section is called Lone Wolf and several rocky, steep, but not lengthy climbs. I would call the White Loop a solid Intermediate with Line Wolf more Advanced. One of the toughest overall in the DFW area and lots and lots of fun. My "home trail" so I have no difficulty navigating it, but its utter lack of signage makes it very problematic for newcomers.

Review: I'm lrating this a "5" based on a local standard, not compared to Whistler or Colorado or Utah, etc. I really think this is one of the absolute best trails in all of DFW. I normally only ride the Lone Wolf section, so this review will focus on that portion of trail. There are several rocky climbs that are really a challenge. If you aren't in great climbing shape, or if your tech climbing skills aren't sharp, you will really be huffing and puffing. However, these climbs come with their reward, and the downhill flows really well. This trail is a lot of fun, and there are a couple sections where you can really pick up some speed. I like the few jumps (all optional) that are interspersed, and there are a few berms to help maintain flow.

This trail is rocky in sections, and it is often dry. That means there is typically a "loose over hardpack" trail condition going on, especially on the first half of lone wolf, which works well with some tires and not with others. This is very apparent on the dam drop section of trail, where there are a couple somewhat sharp turns with a gravel layer over hard dirt. It's a blast, but I'd advise caution on your first go-round.

This is a really great trail, and I'm glad to have it within a reasonable distance from my house.

Similar Trail: Northshore and Big Cedar are probably the trails closest to Sansom in terms of difficulty.

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.
