Summary:
This place is pretty sweet. Its only about 3 miles from my house so its basicly by back yard. The trails are well maintained and it is never overcrowded. I do have a hard time staying on the same trail the entire route, but all the trails end up back at the trail head and they are all pretty sweet. Keep and eye out for turkey down by the creek. The last two times I have nearly taken out a flock of them. DO PAY!!! It is an honor system and they don't have to let us out there. I think 5 bucks is more than fair to get to ride at a well maintained place so close to home.

Recommended Route:
All of it is great.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Palo Duro Canyon
Caprock Canyon

Summary:
Four main trails that all cross over each other at some point. Naturally they're named after girl scout cookies, Thin Mint, Tag A Long, etc.. Enough variety that if you take one long loop you can create 3-4 shorter loops so you don't get bored too easily. Once you hit the trail at the bottom of the valley it gets fast and sometimes a bit loose in corners. All around a fun ride.

Be sure to deposit 5$ in the drop box, it's nice that the Girl Scouts opened this great trail system up for us boneheads to have trails only 10 minutes or less from Amarillo and not have to drive 30+min to get to Palo Duro Canyon, help them out.

Recommended Route:
Any of them are great, twisty and fast with just enough skill needed due to the tight turs, quick climbs and loose kilichee (sp?) ground. Not terribly technical....but that depends upon skill level. I reccomend taking Tag a long out for starters and hooking up with Do-si-do...jeez, I'm sounding lame just writing that. Regardless they all end up back at the parking lot and if you get turned around if you can find the fire road leading back down to the cabins you can follow that right out to the parking lot.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Palo Duro Canyon has the monopoly on trail variety and length. Some more technical downhills and some twisty track but very well maintained.
