CCP is a good trail, as long as you have the proper expectations when you arrive. This is a small trail in the middle of a city park that is mainly designed to cater to beginners or casual riders. It's mostly hard pack and there aren't any huge climbs or long flowing descents. There are some roots here and there and a few creek crossings but overall its a very un-intimidating trail that any rider could conquer with a basic hard tail.
What this trail does have going for it is lots of tight turns, beginner level obstacles to negotiate, and the trail builders have done a good job of cramming a lot of singletrack into a small urban area. There are several different paths diverging from the main "Thrasher's Maze" loop out into the park. The areas outside of thrashers maze aren't very well marked, but even if you get going the wrong direction its easy to get back to where you were, and you're never very far from the main trail or a street.
Worth checking out at least once, and good for a quick workout if you're like me and just love riding in dirt. CCP is located just off the Katy trail at the south end, so you can make an interesting ride by starting in downtown Denton, biking down to CCP, riding the trail, then biking back to Denton on the Katy.
