Mountain Biking Pitcher Pump

***   Add a review
#115 of 275 mountain bike trails in Texas
#4,098 in the world

There are about 9 miles of meandering singletrack tucked into this roughly 1/2 mile by 1 mile plot. The trails cover typical prairie top with a few drops into various drainages and range from novice to easy intermediate (small rock features and tight turns). Most of the system is out in the open, but there are a few stands of seasonal trees. These trails are maintained by Girl Scouts and there is an honor pay system. The trails are named after girl scout cookies.

    Winding singletrack with multiple, mostly non-technical routes available in a small area. Great location for Amarillo. Popular with hikers and cyclists.

    I enjoyed the afternoon out at pitcher pump. Granted it doesn't have lots of miles of various terrain and trials for being just outside the city of Amarillo this is a sweet spot to go and ride. It's got a creek bottom with trials all around it that I enjoyed- if palo duro wasn't 20 or so miles away this place would be much nicer as it's difficult to compete with the canyon. For what it is it's a nice place to put a few miles on the bike. It has some climbs, decent drop off, loose rock and cliffs. As to go through the fence I would go left and follow the fence trail first. Have fun

    For a beginner, these trails provide plenty of challenges: tough and easy climbs, a few technical areas, and several recovery segments.

    This trail network is nicely accessible to the city of Amarillo and provides some nice singletrack on the otherwise uninteresting (for biking) prairie. You can ride the full 9 miles in an hour or so and there won't be much challenge along the way, but it makes for a good quickie if you're in the area. Be sure to pitch in for the Girl Scouts who maintain the trails. For about what you pay for a box of Thin Mints, you can ride the Thin Mint Trail.
