“A technical singletrack that seems to be uphill in both directions.”
— Zach Heflin
This is a mountain bike trail that was entirely built and maintained by mountain bikers. Biking, running, and hiking are all allowed in any direction with the right of way given to biking. No horses or motorized vehicles. Do not ride when muddy. Pack it in, Pack it out.
Palo Duro Lake, north of Spearman, is home to approximately 13 miles of singletrack. The trail is 95% singletrack and winds in and out of the caliche canyons that surround Palo Duro Lake.
The trail is very loose for the most part (especially during dry conditions) which can make for dangerous corners and tough climbs. This trail is not for beginners and should not be ridden alone until the rider has become familiarized with the terrain.
This trail has been continuously added to and modified over the last decade. The local, loose-knit riding club (Panhandle Riding Club) maintains and manages the trail and is always appreciative of volunteer labor and donations.
Special thanks to Ben Butler for building the majority of the singletrack.
