Bonham State Park Trail Professional Review and Guide
"This is a pretty neat place to ride—it’s far enough east of the Metromess that you’re going to get in a little bit of a road trip, but it’s worth the drive. The bulk of the Bonham State Park trail is in the trees, hidden away from sight, but a few short jaunts on the park road will be necessary to complete the entire loop. There are many places to park and connect to the trail, but I will describe the loop the way I ride it; start at the park entrance fee station and ride all the way around until you return to the same spot. Some of the trail surface here is loose broken rock, but a lot of it is dirt, especially the areas under the dense woods.
The trees are the typical mix of oaks, bois d’arc, and red cedar that graces much of this part of Texas. Several sections are covered with native bluestem grasses, and the wildflowers can be very nice here in the springtime. As far as critters go, you might see a raccoon or the occasional armadillo. This is a nice place to camp for the weekend or picnic for the day. You can wander over to the swimming beach and fall into the lake after your ride, if you like. There are a couple of interesting ruins out along the trail, nice places to take a break or a photograph."
