Trail Description
About this trail
Like it's sister trail Isle du Bois this trail has quite a few rocks. This would include rocky climbs and rocky downhills. It doesn't have nearly as many rocks as Isle du Bois but it has 5 creek crossings. It's very well marked so you know which sections are more difficult than others and also includes several bail out points for those who do not want to do more.

Review: Trail system is nicely marked and the map at the entrance is accurate. Great trail system, allows the rider to pick the distance they want to ride by adding another loop. Challenging but not to challenging, not as rocky as we expected, but we did not do the one expert section.

Review: This is a very fun twisty trail, a little bit technical but not to the level of Isle Du Bois. At leat the sections I rode were very nice, a few parts were intense in a good way. I had heard that the Red section was similar to the D section of Isle Du Bois, which left me bruised and scratches from the day before. Most of the Isle Du Bois trail was good there were just a few rocky sections beyond my capability.

Review: I have fellow riders who really like this trail--I do not. I ride a hardtail and I found it too rocky and part of it may be that it seems that it is a trail prone to causing flats or malfunction. I did not have any bike problems but others have. I just think there is so much to offer on other trails that are closer to Dallas that offer more. I hear Isle Du Bois is even rockier and I have no interest in that area.

Review: Most loops aren't too hard, but Red loop is one of the most technical areas in DFW. Many challenging areas, big rocks, tough short climbs, lots of flow. My favorite DFW trail.

Review: Nice trail with some long moderate climbing, rocks and dips to keep things interesting. A very good time and worth a ride.
