Description

West Texas is known to be flat. The PBBA and City of Odessa did a great job utilizing two caliche pits to create a great place to ride. This ride is made up of the Green Trail loop of 3-4 miles which is for beginners and the Blue Trail loop that combines around 9 miles of trail (in total). For more advanced riding, there are some Red/Black "expert" trails which can add some more miles.

This 95-acre park features additional expert trails to total about 11 miles of desert riding. Newly installed bridges, berms, drops, and other features make this park a great place to ride. Another nice addition is the teeter-totter toward the end of the trails near the pavilion. Hard ground with rocky spots here and there make this ride typical of desert riding, with some significant challenges along the way for Blue and Red trail riders.

Watch out in the active months for rattlesnakes (generally they keep to themselves), but you may see some crossing the trails in search of food. Rabbits, foxes, and ground squirrels abound in this area so it can be a rich feeding ground.

Time trials and challenges are held throughout the year at this park. The PBBA's website can provide current information, or visit them on their Facebook page and groups or on Instagram.

PBBA did a great job on the trails. Challenging trails. I'm usually bleeding somewhere everytime I come back. "Get in the pit and try to love someone" Apr 19, 2017
