This is a flat, easy and quick ride through the forest at Dwight D. Eisenhower Park that links up several trails in the park and can net a long ride from the Summerwood area.
This ride combines park roads, doubletrack, and singletrack running through a "Seasonal Wetland." Quiet and unused during the week, this trail system is a great training ride from the Summerwood Community. However, these tracks can get quite muddy after a rain.
When starting at the parking lot just inside the entrance from Aqueduct Rd. on Eisenhower Pkwy., you can complete the park loop in a counter-clockwise spiral manner. First start on the San Jacinto Loop Trail
and head to the top leg of the Copperhead Trail
. Ride back onto Eisenhower Pkwy back up to restart the San Jacinto Loop Trail
to the top leg of the Palmetto Trail
, again hitting Eisenhower Pkwy to the San Jacinto Loop Trail
to finish out the bottom leg of the Palmetto Trail
. Once again ride Eisenhower Pkwy to catch the final power line section, and outer leg, of the San Jacinto Loop Trail
. Take Walton Rd. where you pop out of the San Jacinto Loop Trail
around the outer skirts of the Park to finish at the Aqueduct/Eisenhower parking lot.
