Muddy - There's mud and some puddles in the spots you would expect it to be in. History

Getting forecast...

Tight, twisty singletrack with a nice assortment of technical sections.

Description

Horseshoe offers a little bit of everything, in a nice, compact package. Start from one of two trailheads: (1) Near McPherson Slough Boat Ramp, left off of Dove Loop Road onto Horseshoe Trail Road; (2) Just off of Dove, between Park and Silvercrest.

There are lots of nice short, "steep" technical sections (well, as steep as you can get in these parts!) If you've never been, bring a map, or someone who knows the trail... The trail twists back on itself in places, so it's not hard to shortcut/bypass, or even get going in the wrong direction. Once you know the trail, it's a nice little gem in the DFW area!

Nice surprise! Assorted challenges, mostly sand stone, rocks and roots with occasional drop or rise, well mapped and marked but pay attention! 5.2mi — 2h 00m

Please follow direction arrows. Most of the trail is one way bike, opposite for walking and running. This is for safety due to limited bail out options in some tight areas. Also dog leashes are the actual law. Land is federal army Corp controlled. Oct 11, 2018
