Mountain Biking Faulkner Park

****   Add a review
#143 of 274 mountain bike trails in Texas
#8,057 in the world

Series of singletrack that crosses over doubletrack thus creating "loops." Little
elevation change with some fun technical options w/ opt-out routes. At about the
4.5 mile mark there is a section of mobiles. Despite the often frequent traffic this
makes for a great afternoon ride.

    Faulkner is now a 10 mile loop. New for 2018, we have added an expert section and laid out the old wet C section into new, flowy Loop D. It still has the roots you love and now a few interesting trail features.

    We have completed the 1st phase of the Faulkner Decade project. The new section up on C now has more climbing and downhill sweetness for local MTB'ers. We have also added onto the expert rock section with new wooden features.

    Good place for beginners. Take it easy and enjoy the scenery. Start slow work your way up to the full track.

    Fantastic city park trail. Plenty of roots along this twisty ride. One stretch of switchbacks thrown in with a fair climb. Entertaining enough for strong intermediate riders. Stacks of boulders near the end for the more advanced.

    This is a nice, easy trail. I've ridden it more than 100 times, always enjoyable. Good place to start for anyone 12 and up.

    Nice flow. Excellent for beginners. Location makes it easy for Tyler residence to get to it quickly. Pump track allows the more hard core a chance to push their limits

    They are continually improving and add onto this trail. There are a few really sandy sections past the pump track, however, that is hardly an excuse to avoid this trail.
