Mountain Biking Harry Moss Park

****   Add a review
#56 of 280 mountain bike trails in Texas
#2,297 in the world

This is the newest MTB bike trail in Dallas, opened in Dec, 2010. As of
4/5/2011 there are two main loops (Blue, Green) and a yellow bypass section.
There is a longer orange section under construction. (We are trying to have it
open by Mid May 2011) Start with the Blue section in the front, it starts with
easy single track a narrow tree gate and a bridge crossing with a coupe of
crossings over some rock piles. At the split either take the yellow bypass to
the left (easy route) or continue on the blue loop to the right. This part of the
blue winds up and down along the bank of the creek and the railroad right of
way, intermediate level for the 1st half of blue loop. You can get a really good
workout if you push it. The blue meets back up with the yellow at the bridge
for Walnut Hill road. Go left to stay on blue loop back the the parking lot,
(this section is mostly flowy and fast), or go right under the bridge to the
Green loop. The green loop climbs up and down the bank of Walnut Hill road
and then along the bank of the DART line, lots of off camber. The 2nd half of
the green loop is flat with some twisty parts and tree gates. The (under
construction) orange section (when finished) will add about 1.7 more miles and
we plan to add more trail inside the green loop. There is 4 miles now and
should be about 7.5 miles of trail when finished. See the DORBA.ORG website
for instructions on how to get from the paved "White Rock Creek" trail to the
Harry Moss trail.

    Fun little inner city single track trail. Enough features here and there to keep it interesting. Nothing very technical.
    A couple of the steep short climbs and a couple of creek crossings may cause beginners to bail. Looks like it gets a lot of use, but it's a one way stacked multi-loop trail, so no big worry for traffic jams. Even has a little "trail art", like the tree of shopping carts, and hanging road cones/barriers. :)

    Love this trail! It is suitable for the whole family and if you are in training mode you can hit a couple of loops. I have ridden here several times and it has always left me smiling. It is a beginner/ intermediate trail. But it has great flow in all the inner loops. Great trail for being in the city.

    Only about 10 minutes from my house, so it's my most ridden trail. I can easily swing by for a quick spin after work and on weekends. Sometimes more than once per day if I'm lucky. The trails are not hard at all, but there are a couple of creek crossings that you need to pay attention on. A few man-made bridges and structures and plenty of tight single track trails. The trail steward does a great job on this one. It's such a family atmosphere here I always meet someone and end up riding with folks that I didn't know beforehand. You can easily run the whole thing in less than an hour, so even a lunch run is doable in milder months. In the Summer, it's really hot here as it's really buried in the trees and gets zero breeze. A few snakes in the warmer months as well, so be on the ready to hope over any "roots" that move. Pretty beginner friendly as long as they take their time. Highly recommended. I can't really believe that I have 2-3 trails within 20 minutes of my house like this...in Dallas.

    What's not to like about Harry Moss? This is a fun beginner-Intermediate trail ride in the heart of Dallas. How freak'n cool that we even have a trail inside the 635 circle! DORBA does an awesome job of grooming the various routes weekly. It's never crowded. It offers some fun dips and a few climbs to test your skill, there are optional routes that will entertain the more advanced. Show me another "inner city" mountain bike trail anywhere in the USA that's better than this one.

    This trail gets 4 stars for the maintenance on the trail. It is very well labled and easy to navigate as well as immaculately upkept. The trail is very easy to ride with some slightly technical obstacles the first part of the trail. Can't get a ton of speed going. All in all I work right next to this trail and found you can do the whole trial on your lunch break and is a fun ride.

    As a somewhat beginner my first lap was challenging, with a few whoopty dos, short yet steep descents with immediate quick steep decents. On my second lap I took more obstacles and added some black sections as well as cut my time in half. There were technical sections I bypassed that a more advanced rider would crush. Overall it's a great little track that offers up some cool opportunity to get better on every turn.

    The first half mile or so is slightly more technical, but then the rest is very easy. Can't get up a whole lot of speed, due to how bumpy the trail is though. Overall, it's a good trail, but wish there was more of the technical stuff.
