Fun trail, heavily used but slightly technical. All of it can be ridden with at least a little skill.
Great beginner-intermediate trail with tight turns, switchbacks, a lot of exposed roots, a couple of difficult climbs, bridges, and a few fast downhills. Well-maintained and tamed a bit since the new updates in '09 and perfect for those who live in the Oklahoma City metro area. It's probably the most used (and abused) trail in Oklahoma. Great for building skills if you're just starting because of the variety in the trail design...just take it slow and avoid the marked "caution" areas. For more advanced riders, it's a great 30 minute ride. Do NOT ride within 48 hours of rain...save your bike and the trail!
This is my first and still favorite trail. I'm able to ride around nearby Lake Hefner on the 9 mile stretch of asphalt cycling and then follow the 1 mile bike path on the north side of the lake to Bluff Creek for a great 4 mile single track. Between Lake Hefner and Bluff Creek trails, I can get a huge variety of riding in just over an hour!
This trail is fun because if it slightly technical, might even be hard for beginners to stay on bike. Stay off it if you cant do technical biking
has some portions of trail that are fun but the open fields re treacherous with big eroded ruts- ok for a change but since erwin park in mckinney is not very far away and lots more challenging- this trail should be known as step-sister grove.
