Review: Pretty easy trail, not intermediate as the ratings show, only a few tough elements but overall it is a good beginner trail.

Review: June 2016 Arbor Hills was the first single track I'd ever ridden trying to recover myself from a Pneumonia. It was a real challenge on my hand me down rigid 26 but I've loved it since day one. It's helped me to get in better condition and to track my progress. From my first lap where I had to stop more times than I could count to being able to clean it to being able now to do multiple laps and having competed in a couple races it's been awesome! Arbor is not a place I would take a true beginner but it was a great place to inspire me having ridden some BMX as a kid. Challenges: ROOTS both on the short steep climbs and the washed out drops. Can provide a nice cardio challenge if you push yourself. Love this trail and the work of the trail stewards and volunteers has made the overall course even better for '17 in my opinion. Thanks DORBA for an awesome and inspiring short trail I can catch in town. When I don't have time for anything else it's everything I need.

Review: I LOVED this trail when i lived in North Texas Where i grew up in a little town called The Colony, Texas i loved the camber corners and it is the track that got me interested in single tracks before that i liked cross country style mountain biking like Greenbelt Trail in Denton, Texas

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 :)
