Lucy Park - Trail, Wichit Falls, Texas

DESCRIPTION

The trail is mostly tight singletrack and is very technical at points. Lots of quick down/ups. Lots of fun but not very fast since the turns are frequent.

THIS IS THE WRONG TRAIL!! Please read below.

I think all the reviews here except maybe the first one are for the Wee-Chi-ta trail. If you are a mountain biker that has rode in Wichita Falls on a fun trail then this IS NOT it. Lucy Park has a bunch of concrete walking paths and at one end there is a section with no concrete and a few dirt trails, very small and would only consider them to be unpaved walking path's we are talking senior citizen walking paths. Please put your review's on the Wee-Chi-ta trail.

Leave this place and go to the Wee-Chi-ta trail on the other side of the river.

Very fun and unexpected for the area. I never would have thought that there would be a trail this nice in WF. The trail is tight and twisty with a lot of sharp drops and very short ascents. Most of the trail is smooth with a good flow. There is a route through an old barn and what the locals call the "no brakes" section that twists around in an old pond bottom as well as a bridge made of steel about 20 feet long and a foot wide with a couple of turns. Because of limited area it crosses itself numerous times and could be hard to figure out where your at and whether you've ridden it all. I would recommend riding with some locals which shouldn't be hard to do. They are very excited to have this trail, as would I be. Heck I would love to have something like this in the town I live in. Gave a "4" for the fun factor. If you are in Saint Jo to ride it is worth the effort to come and ride in Wichita Falls.

We started from the Texoma Cycling center and rode most of the trail, I believe. Said to be 11 miles in length. Met some riders at the trailhead an they guided us through. Surprising amount of traffic on the trail.
Came to Tx. to ride the Breaks in St. Jo but it was closed for hunting season. Stupid rednecks. Heard from another biker about this trail.

Firt of all their is a big distinction between the "Lucy Park" trail on the west side of the river and the trail on the east side of the river. If someone goes to Lucy Park looking for mountain bike trails they will find cement walking trails and some singletrack hiking paths worn down by the people who fish from the Wichita river. Are they bikeable? Yes, but they are in no way exciting unless you are just learning how to keep you bike from falling over without the training wheels. However, on the east side of the river is a much better trail. We call it the river rock trail because the River Rock Adventure Challenge(R.R.A.C.)uses it for their mtb race(as far as I know this trail has no official name). Actually the people who have done most of the work on this trail are also the people who put on the R.R.A.C. every year. It's pretty fast despite some twisty singletrack. They've done a lot of work on this trail in the past few years. Watch out for poison ivy.

The trailhead starts at the east side of the Ohio street bridge in front of the Texoma Cycling Center. However the easiest way to get there is to cross the wichita river on the suspension foot bridge in Lucy Park. Once on the east side, follow the river north and you will find the trail.

Is not a challenging trail at all. I would't really recommend it if your proffesional and looking for a rush. However, If you just want to go out to take an easy and fast ride it's pretty good. Several sharp turns, and you can get banged up in the trees, if your not careful. Watch out for a few false trails that dead end the river (personal experience). There are mostly just local kids that ride the trail. Watch out for pedestrians here and there, everyonce and awhile there will be a few. Don't forget to take the trail to The water falls, and on down by the river just to cool off, or for some scenery. Overall it's a fun trail to play around with.

Customer Service

Make sure you follow the dirt trail that runs along the river and to the back of the park.

This is the same trail the Red Rock Adventure Challenge uses, and I would say that it is pretty challenging. Lots of quick up and downs, tons of single track switchbacks, and some tough climbs and decents. This is where I started my love for mountain biking. Good for intermediate riders or beginers not afraid to crash once in a while.

Customer Service

From I-44 take exit 1-c and go behind the tourist info center.
