This is a really fun trail I ride it almost every day. There aren't really very many places to catch any speed, just a whole lot of switch backs and a ton of up-and-down dirt mounds and some concrete blocks stuck here and there on the trail. It's an OK trail good for a afternoon ride or a warm up if you take it as hard as you can. Watch for switchbacks and tight cuts through the trees, it's easy to get caught on a tree or hit your head if your not careful.

Summary:
This is a truly great trail!!! I would recommend it to anyone. It may be a little tough for beginers but any areas that you are not comfortable trying then you can just walk it. Most difficult sections have areas where you can go around. A lot of the trails are marked red yellow and green so when you see a red sign then you can just take the green instead to bypass the hard sections. There has been a lot of work put into this trail especially in the last couple years so the old reviews don't hold as much value. There are a lot of fun ups and downs on this trail and a lot of tight single track. I think it is almost perfect. Its hard enough to keep anyone entertained but easy enough that most intermediate riders can do everything and beginers can ride it by bypassing most hard sections or walking some sections. There are some tough climbs and some fast descents but none are real big. I think this trail is a little under rated. I absolutely love it! I just bought some lights for my bike and as soon as it dries out I plan on trying it at night. I think it will be very challenging at night. There are some group rides done from Texoma cycle center including night rides. Great bike shop. Go check out there web site for more info on rides.

Recommended Route:
The best part of the trail starts at the big gate that says camp fuller at the top. It is located at the end of the access road in front of the Texas information center. Get there by riding the sidewalk or the trail straight north from the texas information center. When you get to the end of the sidewalk you will see the Camp Fuller gate and the two yellow poles that you ride between. This is a great place to start and the funnest part of the trail. It is still pretty fun from there down to the Holliday Inn in both directions. From the area behind the Holiday Inn to Texoma Cycle center it is flat and pretty boring however the trail starts across the street from Texoma cycle center. Just north of there in the trees. If you start here and make the full loop I think it is about 11 miles.

Summary:
Just started biking in October and I love this trail!! I've put 194 miles on my bike since October 18th and almost all are on this trail. The course is very little "natural" terrain. There's a nice little creek bed and a lot of very tight singletrack. The most interesting stuff is north of Lucy Park at the "YMCA Summer Camp Facility". It's about 4.5 miles of trail and is sorta the reward for the other eight miles of the loop that are strictly flatland. My best time so far for the 4.5 miles technical and fun section is 34 minutes so it's pretty slow in there (at least for me) It's definitely the best thing to do in this town!!

Recommended Route:
Ride with a local if possible to learn the route. You can ride it in a group AT NIGHT if you're brave by contacting Texoma Cycling Center.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
none.

Summary:
Fast in many places but several sections are tight and up/ down. Dry as of Nov 16th, 2006 in 90%. Avoid area behind HOLIDAY INN hotel as much of this section was under water for several days in OCT and is still very muddy. HIGH WINDS on Nov 15, 2006 blew down several large trees totally blocking some sections of trails. Blown down trees are being removed by volunteer work crews as fast as they can but will take several weeks to clear out all sections. Be aware!

Recommended Route:
Drop in at trailhead at BRENDON'S LANNDING/ Texoma Cycling Center in Downtown or at TEXAS Visitor Center off Hwy 44 S. Follow signs (one way) and take time to learn where trees have blocked certain trails... Area near "bowl" has deep standing water so avoid that section till spring 2007.

Summary:
I ride this trail a lot. I help to develop new parts and to maintain the current trail. If you start at Texoma Cycling Center over in Berend's Landing, you will add some miles to the trail, about 12 miles round trip. There are some sketchy short downhill sections between trees and over rocks. Most of the trial is single-track, tight and twisting through trees. Definitely a lot of fun.

Recommended Route:
Go to Texoma Cycling Center in Berend's Landing. They have maps of the trail.

Summary:
Approx. 10 miles of trail. Starts out double track and pretty flat for a mile or two, then turns quickly into single track. This is a good fast trail, some good drops, switchbacks, etc. It has a little of everything, and is well kept buy the guys at TCC. Another plus is there isnt any off-roaders allowed. Its just us and the mud! Beginers can handle this trail, yet it is exciting enough to keep an intermediate rider interested. I ride this trail at least once, sometimes twice a week and havent gotten too bored yet. If your in the area, its worth a ride. I live about 40 miles from Wichita and still make the trip often. This isnt some hard core trail or anything like that, but considering there isnt too much else around this area to ride, this is good trail. Im giving it 5 Stars.

Recommended Route:
Start at "Texoma Cycling Center), follow the sign on Scott Street.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Whether you go ride this trail or not, Texoma Cycling Center is a must stop. Damn good people run that place. Jarvis the owner, Dewayne, Larry and Matt are great and eager to help anyone, beginer or pro, it doesnt matter.
