“Great bike trail and a good close by to camp”

Erwin Park Hike & Bike Trail
Reviewed 5 May 2014

Please keep your head up while riding on the trail, there are some spots that will require skills with quick turns, log jumps, and it will knock your breath away. GREAT trail.

Camping permits are granted by the Community Center, and is a quiet park.

One of the better mountain bike mile loops in the metroplex. Was better, but man made modifications have been made to make it more a universal trail and a bit easier. Erwin was more technical single track than it is now but has a few challenges and has some cardio moments.
Places in the trail that are more challenging are named such as "No Brakes", "Bank-Shot", "Cadillac Dip", "The Dips"and "Screaming Drop". Phase three has a few bridges and and man made challenges. Watch out for snakes, hikers, Boy Scouts and family campers and share the trail.
7.5 mile loop

My husband and I love to bike here at the weekends, he does the Trails and loves them. I just ride around the pard and enjoy taking in the beautiful surroundings and nature. Very well maintained for, biking, hiking or camping. Great place to go, we love that we live 5 minutes down the road from it.

The trail at Erwin Park is neither flat nor boring. It's not like riding in the Rockies, but for North Texas, it's a nice single-track, maybe one of the better ones I've ridden. Try riding a few days after a good rain for some serious fording across the streams. And for a more challenging course, turn left. The "difficult" section is down the left of the fork over the bridge.
Overnight camping is available, and it's cheap. And there are beautiful, wide open spaces for just enjoying the fresh air or flying a kite.
I give it five stars because this park is vast, and in some places it looks untouched and wild. And yet, you are five minutes from civilization.

Don't listen to the little weeny wieners, knocking the place because it is "hot". This is Texas moron, it's the plains in summer, what do you expect? If you can't hack it, move.

I am from Arizona & while this isn't the great mountainous region of the Southwest or even Big Bend, the Chihuahuan or the Trans-Pecos, it is a nice area, wooded with some nice challenging technical single trails. There is riding for all levels from beginner to pro-am & beyond & it's close to home for many.

If you want to meet new people & learn from some really great riders, Cadence Cyclery hosts a Thursday evening ride. Since sunset isn't until 8:30 in the summer, you can enjoy the trails for a few hours after work. The Cadence ride is awesome & Chad, the owner of Cadence, tears the trail up at an amazing pace. Hit up Cadence Cyclery's calendar & come on out for a great time.
