What are you boys thinking? This trail is OK for after work-close to home riding, but it actually a fast ride around an almost flat park. Yeah, it's better than nothing if you happen to be in Lubbock, but voted best in West Texas series? Let me guess the vast majority of the voters were from........Lubbock, maybe? Drive to Caprock or Palo Duro Canyon if you're in Lubbock for more than a day as this could be the most over-rated trial on MTBR.

Directions above are a little off, turn on 24th instead of 26th and you'll find it. A little hard to find the trail beginning. Go to the bottom of the hill on the service road, look left. Great track if you're short on time and wanting to go fast. Not near as many rocks as the other local trails. Starts with a few small climbs and descents shared with a little cacti. About a mile in you'll see a warehouse on the left and that's when you can really turn on the speed and make it more technical then intended. The last half isn't bad in the heat of the day due to the tree cover, is almost all dirt and sand and very muddy when wet.

Customer Service

After coming through the man made embankments along the creek, take the left fork to do it all again.

This was my second ride in Lubbock, I'm getting a little more used to the mostly singletrack trails and all the cacti. The first part is fun zooming through all the turns, although hot because of a lack of shade. Once you pass the dam and go over the railroad bed there's some pretty tricky downhill and a nice climb lined with cacti (I found myself clipping out much sooner than I normally would for fear of tipping into the prickly stuff). Overall a good trail, typical of the area. I did enjoy this one a little more than the Purina trail.

This trail has had some new work and is more enjoyable. Big riders beware after you cross the bridge, there is a low tree that likes to grab you in the back. The faster you ride the trail the more technical it gets.

Customer Service

The route in the description is best, the new addition is between the dirt road the the dam. still a fun ride.

This trail is a Gold Mine for cyclist in the Lubbock area. If you have stayed here, you will quickly find the public land available for biking is very limited. Recently, some logging activity for some construction has cut off much of the trails on the West Route. However, there are still plenty of miles still open. You will find a variety of terrain, grass, sand, and rocks along the single lane trail. Climbs are fairly short but steep. The small loose rocks can play a major role whether you make it up a climb or not. Overall, the trail provides a challenge, easy navigation, signs(Green arrows easy route), and maintained well by the city and local bike organizationa.

Customer Service

East Route is long, provides more open area trails. West Route, closed in with trees, cacti, and provides some steep climns.
