Wee-chi-ta - Trail, Wichita Falls, Texas

DESCRIPTION

This is a really fun trail I ride it almost every day. There aren't really very many places to catch any speed, just a whole lot of switch backs and a ton of up-and-down dirt mounds and some concrete blocks stuck here and there on the trail. It's an OK trail good for a afternoon ride or a warm up if you take it as hard as you can. Watch for switchbacks and tight cuts through the trees, it's easy to get caught on a tree or hit your head if your not careful.

Came to Wichita Falls to try the trail before the Hotter Than Hell. This is a very nice trail. Somebody has taken a lot of time and care to put this together. I stopped in the local bike shop and got advice on it before I headed out and they were very helpful. The trail leaves from the park just below the Texoma Cycling Center and heads up river, behind the old Sheraton Hotel, across the parking lot by the tourist bureau and into Camp Filler. This is where the fun begins. I was only here one day but plan on bringing my bike everytime I come to WF. Lots of great bridges and drops in the Camp Filler area.

Customer Service

If you are short on time just park at the Tourist Bureau and enter Camp Filler. That could easily be a day of play. It is supposed to 106 degrees here, Aug 2nd. The Hotter Than Hell doesn't fall short of its reputation, even on the MTBR front.

This is a truly great trail!!! I would recommend it to anyone. It may be a little tough for beginers but any areas that you are not comfortable trying then you can just walk it. Most difficult sections have areas where you can go around. A lot of the trails are marked red yellow and green so when you see a red sign then you can just take the green instead to bypass the hard sections. There has been a lot of work put into this trail especially in the last couple years so the old reviews don't hold as much value. There are a lot of fun ups and downs on this trail and a lot of tight single track. I think it is almost perfect. Its hard enough to keep anyone entertained but easy enough that most intermediate riders can do everything and beginers can ride it by bypassing most hard sections or walking some sections. There are some tough climbs and some fast descents but none are real big. I think this trail is a little under rated. I absolutely love it! I just bought some lights for my bike and as soon as it dries out I plan on trying it at night. I think it will be very challenging at night. There are some group rides done from Texoma cycle center including night rides. Great bike shop. Go check out there web site for more info on rides.

The best part of the trail starts at the big gate that says camp fuller at the top. It is located at the end of the access road in front of the Texas information center. Get there by riding the sidewalk or the trail straight north from the texas information center. When you get to the end of the sidewalk you will see the Camp Fuller gate and the two yellow poles that you ride between. This is a great place to start and the funnest part of the trail. It is still pretty fun from there down to the Holliday Inn in both directions. From the area behind the Holiday Inn to Texoma Cycle center it is flat and pretty boring however the trail starts across the street from Texoma cycle center. Just north of there in the trees. If you start here and make the full loop I think it is about 11 miles.

I can't get enough of this trail. I am going to give it 5 chili's on everything because I just love this trail. Its actually not the most technical but there is just enough to keep it interesting for anyone. You need a little bit of skill to ride it but I would recommend that even beginners try it. There may be a few areas that you may want to get off and walk but a big majority of it is fast swooping and tight singletrack. There are some really challenging uphills but none of them are very tall. Overall I think the place is almost perfect. Like I said it probably isnt the hardest and most technical but if it was any harder than it would eleminate to many people from riding it. There has been a bunch of changes in the last year so come check it out if you haven't been here in a while. As far as Aerobic Difficulty. Isn't that as hard as you make it? When I am trying to beat my best time around the course, I feel like I am going to pass out.

The trail is about 11 miles total and it starts near Texoma Cycling center. I think they even have maps there. The entrance is in the trees just north of the Berends Landing statue that is across the street from Texoma Cycling Center (Great place to go if you need anything for your bike and its where I bought my bike). The trail is pretty flat and boring from the entrance until you get behing the Holiday Inn. The best place to park is at the Texas Information Center. From there ride the sidewalk (or the trail) North until you hit the end of the access road. To your left will be a large gate with Camp Fuller at the top. There are two yellow poles that you can ride between. This is the entrance to the funnest part of the trail. For me the best part of the trail starts here but it is also fun when you come out of this area and follow the river all the way to Holiday Inn. After that there isn't much. The bike shop is a great place to go because they have group rides from there. You an go to Texoma Cycling Centers website for more info.

Just started biking in October and I love this trail!! I've put 194 miles on my bike since October 18th and almost all are on this trail. The course is very little "natural" terrain. There's a nice little creek bed and a lot of very tight singletrack. The most interesting stuff is north of Lucy Park at the "YMCA Summer Camp Facility". It's about 4.5 miles of trail and is sorta the reward for the other eight miles of the loop that are strictly flatland. My best time so far for the 4.5 miles technical and fun section is 34 minutes so it's pretty slow in there (at least for me) It's definitely the best thing to do in this town!!

Customer Service

Ride with a local if possible to learn the route. You can ride it in a group AT NIGHT if you're brave by contacting Texoma Cycling Center.

Fast in many places but several sections are tight and up/ down. Dry as of Nov 16th, 2006 in 90%. Avoid area behind HOLIDAY INN hotel as much of this section was under water for several days in OCT and is still very muddy. HIGH WINDS on Nov 15, 2006 blew down several large trees totally blocking some sections of trails. Blown down trees are being removed by volunteer work crews as fast as they can but will take several weeks to clear out all sections. Be aware!

Customer Service

Drop in at trailhead at BRENDON'S LANNDING/ Texoma Cycling Center in Downtown or at TEXAS Visitor Center off Hwy 44 S. Follow signs (one way) and take time to learn where trees have blocked certain trails... Area near "bowl" has deep standing water so avoid that section till spring 2007.

There has been done A LOT of work on this trail the last few months. Not sure about the distance, but i guess around 12-13 miles. Mostly flat-ish, but plenty of drops and turns to keep you interrested and smiling. Now it really competes with the trails in Saint Jo (The breaks at bar h).

Customer Service

Start from Texoma Cycling Center and follow the arrows.

I ride this trail a lot. I help to develop new parts and to maintain the current trail. If you start at Texoma Cycling Center over in Berend's Landing, you will add some miles to the trail, about 12 miles round trip. There are some sketchy short downhill sections between trees and over rocks. Most of the trial is single-track, tight and twisting through trees. Definitely a lot of fun.

Customer Service

Go to Texoma Cycling Center in Berend's Landing. They have maps of the trail.

its not the fastest, but its fun. watch out for trees in the tight spots, especially in loose dirt, ive busted my knukles a few times and left marks on the trees and my bike. watch your head, the trees are painted in bright flourescents but kinda hard to see in low light. other than that, just hit it hard and have fun

Customer Service

through the gate at the old ymca camp, you can park at the sheridan hotel, but i recomend parking at texoma cycling center. its a little longer, but its a rad bike shop. theres a few little ins and outs of the trails so just ride where you want

This is a good intermediate trail with a lot of switchbacks. During the spring it is good riding not as much foliage growth, the summer it gets real thick which keeps the temp down lots of shade. The trail gets rugged when there is no rain. The ride itself is awesome, a good trail to push yourself for time and endurance. It is good to go with at least four in a group makes for some good competion runs.
