Mountain Biking Corinth Community Park

****   Add a review
#91 of 275 mountain bike trails in Texas
#3,025 in the world

This trail consists of an easy, two-way, family-friendly outer loop with an intermediate level, one-way, singletrack inner loop called Thrashers Maze. The preferred route is a counter-clockwise loop leaving from Corinth City Hall parking lot. Follow the trail along Lynchburg Creek until you come to a small parking lot at the east end of the park. From here you can make a U-turn and connect to Thrashers Maze (look for the one-way sign at the entrance) or continue directly across Corinth Parkway and continue to ride the trail around the park perimeter. If you choose Thrashers Maze you will enjoy just under 2 miles of nice singletrack through tight trees. Thrashers Maze will terminate back at the same small parking lot from where it began. Cross Corinth Parkway and continue in a counter-clockwise direction around the perimeter of the park. When you reach the wooded area known as Pacman Hill note that there are several route choices available. Try different ways through but you'll ultimately come out at the main entrance to the park. Proceed south across Corinth Parkway and enter the woods at the right of the parking lot. This is called Bobcat Trail and it leads back to the Lynchburg Creek trail that will take you back to City Hall. Look carefully for a few alternate trails that parallel the main trail and provide a more technical alternative. A well-planned route will net about 7 miles of trail. At City Hall you can also connect to the DCTA Rails Trail.

    Some updates... Rode Corinth Community Park recently, and there are a few temporary obstacles as a result of a week's worth of rain/storms. One tree blocks the trail requiring a climb-over, and there are a few uprooted trees leaning low over the trail providing potential head banging if you don't duck. All of these were on the eastern section of the trail, and nothing drastic... just watch your head. As for the trail in general, it has become much more defined over the last few months, as it seems more mountain bikers are frequenting the trail. There used to be several alternate, crisscrossing cuts that made it a little difficult to know where to go. Now, the trail is much more obvious and has a better flow. Honestly, these improvements seem to coincide with this trail having been added to more trail sites, which in turn probably helped increased its use by more traditional mountain bikers familiar with riding single track. All good stuff. Still an easy fun trail to get in a quick ~5 miles (one loop).

    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.

    Just a update (1/19/18)... the one little water crossing this trail has which had some small logs and rocks in it below the water line seems to have lost its logs and rocks. While blasting through the crossing, my front wheel sank close to the front disk and resulted in a muddy endo. Rider beware! :)

    As rated, a beginner trail. Pretty tight and twisty, no real flow, with no opportunities to open up in higher gears. No need for a big 3rd ring (yeah, I still ride a 3x9!). Would be a good single speed trail. A handful of short sharp dips and climbs. This seems to resemble many of the newer trails developing these days where you never leave low gear and never straighten the bars. :( A 29er would probably struggle here.

    Very Fun!
    Just got MTN bikes for the family; first time in trails with a 7yo, 10yo wife and I. It was very fun great for the kids yet challenging with a few nice features as tight turns between trees, logs, creeks, etc.
    Will go back until the kids graduate to something more difficult.

    Wow! Much more fun than expected. A little bit of everything for all and very well marked. Was my first visit and I will be back.

    Easy outside loop with and tight inner track. Great for my 8yr old and I to run together. The area has lots of houses around it so there are pedestrians (young children too) on the trail at times.

    I had a lot of fun today on this trail. Even leaf covered but was still fun. If your close to it, go for it!

    Great trail for anyone wanting to have a leisure trail ride through the woods - not much elevation change. This is a good beginner's trail, although young riders may have to dismount a few times where the trail dips into small ravines.

    I would say this is our "home" trail just because it is so close to home. Great for a quick ride after work on a weekday. No climbs but it is a fun ride. Ridden once at night and it was fun.

    The perimeter trail is wide and beginner- friendly. The inner loop known as Thrashers Maze is closer to an intermediate level trail. Nothing overly challenging here but doing multiple laps is a great training workout.
