Windmill Hill Park

Average Rating:    (3.07 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 14

This is a very nice little park, and the home of the Stevie Ray Vaughn Memorial Bridge. Some very steep hills both up and down, not always giving a lot of traction. A real challenge at times. Not very long, but an interesting little trail. Very pretty wooded areas that give you some shade from the sun, and some whoop-de-doos that the kids have made for their BMX bikes that you can have some fun on also.

Summary:
I don't get it. I can see riding this if this is your hometown trail or something... but then again... Cedar Hill is right down the road! Sorry to 'dis the trail but it is what it is I guess :-(

Summary:
This trail has a mixed of things that will challenge people. This
trail has a bunch of climbs some easy and some not. There is one
section of BMX type jumps/dips that are fun to play around on. Overall it is a short somewhat technical trail (not for new riders)
trail that is fun to ride and is a good change of place. I do enjoy
riding this trail but because of where I live only ride it once or
twice a year.

Recommended Route:
It hard to says. There are too many intersections to say.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Both Cedar Hill SP and Boulder Park are within 5 miles of Windmill

Summary:
This is a short trail that is worth the trip....Once

Recommended Route:
I have found that if you stay on the exterior of this trail you will have a pleasurable ride, however there is one section with a bunch of jumps that can give you a workout.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Two thumbs up for Boulder Park.

Summary:
I'm new to off road, but find this park interesting to ride. There are some nice steep down hills and up hills. This course is short, but there are several trails to choose. The water crossing was a nice touch. The hills may be a bit much for the novice rider, my wife a newbie to cycling all together did manage a few of down hills, but walk a few. New trails are being added.

Recommended Route:
Counter clock
