Singletrack with lots of short ups and downs
From the Parking lot, head out on the trail passing all kinds of hikers, fishermen, wind surfers, and young punk kids. This is an out and back trail so be aware of oncoming traffic. Once past the initial congestion area, the trail is quite rutted out and loose. Follow the trail through a bit of swampy area, and up through the twisty singletrack. You will go through a few gates, walk your bike through (or for the really good riders, wheely over them!). Just past the third set of gates you will come upon a paved road. Follow the road for about 1/2 mile turning left onto another road. Turn left onto the singletrack going down through a water filled gully. If it is hot out this feels great, if not.... Keep following the road veering to the left after about 200 yards. Cross the park road twice making sure you look both ways at each road. Refill the water bottles at the fountain if you need to and go through another gate on the left. Maintain the singletrack crossing the park road yet again. Another gate and 1/2 mile brings you to the middle of the trail and Sneaky Petes marina. Follow the singletrack for another 4-5 miles and you end up on the park road yet again. Cross the road and dive into the singletrack on the left. More sweet trails and you enter the paved road again. Cross the road and enter the uphill singletrack on the right side of the road. Follow the trail up, down, back and forth until you go through the last gate and onto the park road. Finally the end of the trail! Now you get to retrace your steps!
How to get there:
From Dallas take 635 west towards the airport. Take the first exit before the airport (the name is in the middle of a change). Go left at the stop sign follow the road across the highway then left at the stoplight. Turn right into the park follow the road through the damn spillway then take the first left into the park picnic area. Follow the road down and to the right until the circle. Park anywhere, there is water and bathrooms on site.
This trail is heavily congested, very eroded, and overly used.
