The most well-known and most used trail in the entire metroplex. This is an old motorcross trail that was first used to cycle on by Tom Deans, a long-time DORBA trail steward. The trail is ONE WAY now, going counter clockwise. This trail runs between Rockledge Park and then west, past Twin Coves Park on the north shoreline of Lake Grapevine. Total of 22.5 glorious miles of multi-terrain, multi-skill-level trail. The East sdie loops 1-4 is good for intermediate riders while the West side loops 5-7 is considerably more technical. There are several "rock gardens" on this side, very technical to ride through. Watch out for hikers and other bikers speeding around bends. An average of 800 bikers visit per week, so be extra careful!!
The US Army Corps of Engineers have a website with information on the lake and park information.
Bicycles must follow directional signs and navigate the trail counter-clockwise. Runners and Hikers are encouraged to go clockwise to allow more reaction time from bicycles.
ONE EAR BUD TRAIL: Please recognize that this is a high volume trail with many trail users. For your safety and that of all the others on the trail, please use only one earbud as you will need to hear other trail user's requests to pass.
