Summary:
I see that no one has written about this place in 7 years. Well...nothing has changed. It's likely the worst trail that I've ridden in about that same period of time. Hot, dry and perhaps acceptable in the winter on fat tires. Otherwise, I would suggest avoiding this place. Deep sand that even a camel would reject. Whoever put together the mapping and trail marking was on crack. The map given to you at the park entrance is opposite oriented from the maps found posted at the rest areas. Who decided that the top of a map would be East or West? They did both here.

Recommended Route:
Recommended route? My recommendation is to just keep driving until you find another place to ride.

Not too sure of anything around here.

Summary:
Its a place to ride if you are in the area. Bring your sand wedge though you will need it. The only technical part of this trail is being able to read the the map and understand it. You can get lost in here. It is flat and sandy. Anyone should be able to ride here. Unless you are a train stay off the rails to trails. The trail is a road. Stay on the pavement and go fast and get is shape.

Recommended Route:
Just point your bike down any trail and ride it. It does not take long and other than the sand you can blow through this thing quick.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Go to Glen Rose it is a blast.

Summary:
Barely any shade for 20 miles. Nothing technical. When you do see someone and you say "Morning" or "Hello" they just ride past. Might as well talk to the cows and horses along the trail. I have seen wildlife including deer, bunnies, and snakes. Don't be the first on the trail in the morning or you will eat spider webs for most of the trip (This is the voice of experience speaking.). I guess it's good for distance riding if you don't want to get run over by cars. The six mile climb from Mineral Wells will test your endurance in the 100 degree Texas heat.

Recommended Route:
Weatherford to Mineral Wells

Summary:
There is a reason this used to be a railroad. Even the horses get bored.

Recommended Route:
when you get to Miserable Wells, turn left and go to Cleburne.
