Cross Timbers

Average Rating:    (4.5 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 2

The Cross Timbers Hiking Trail begins in Juniper Point recreation area and winds west some 14 miles along the southern shoreline of the lake through Cedar Bayou and Paw Paw Creek resorts to Rock Creek Camp. Between Juniper Point and Cedar Bayou the trail travels high above the lake on the rocky ledges that make up the shoreline. From these high vantage points one is refreshed by beautiful views of the lake and its shores. From Cedar Bayou to Paw Paw Creek resort the trail meanders through a blackjack oak woodland which typifies the Cross Timbers environment. This segment of the trail takes the biker through many changes of elevation. Between Paw Paw Creek resort and Rock Creek Camp the trail is much flatter and the tree cover more sparse.

Summary:
i rode juniper point to cedar bayou. 2.5 mi. O/W

there is no question this is one of the most challenging trials in texas.

the whole thing was ridable but.....for me, a strong advanced rider, there were simply too many flowmomentum killers to enjoy the ride. roots, yes , rocks yes, turns yes, short climbs yes, deadly drops off into the lake, yes.

none by themselves would slow you up. but they work together to cause halts and dismounts, and then needing to regain speed in short distances before the next set of obstacles arise.

if you are a strong technically advanced rider you could ride 99% of this. i could not. the numerous halts took the fun out of it.

100% shade.
100 % sandy loam and dirt. probably a muddy quagmire after a rain.

Summary:
Extremely technical with impossible climbs and Dangerous Down hills. Some of the longest extend climbs in North Texas which are rewarded with some fun down hills. This was originally a hiking trail and in some section is still only passable by hiking but the rest of the trail makes up for the short sections that can not be ridden. It is best if you bring plenty of water there isn't any on the trail except at the unfriendly trailer park at the end of the trail. Expect to spend all day at this trail it is that much fun and that technical

Recommended Route:
It is best to start at Cedar Bayou and Park just before the marina. You will see the trail to your left about 100 ft before the gates of the marina. But there is a great section just north of the marina it along the shore line so if you ride around the marina and just go north you will find it. It is just to left of a house and its drive way. this section is a short but fun section.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Cameron Park, Bar H, Lake Murray, Cleburne
