“A nice trail that feels like backcountry riding less than an hour from the city.”— Marcus Troxell
Park at the DORBA trailhead, and the trail starts on the east side. The trail is a one-way stacked loop traveling clockwise. Starting with Loop A and Loop B, you are lulled into a sense of security by the ease of the trail. Sure, there are a lot of small rocks (more-so than most DFW trails) but it's not bad. After crossing the road, you get on Loop C where the real fun starts.
You'll soon encounter rock gardens of increasing difficulty. Take the "difficult" alternate lines to really test your skills. When you reach the intersection with the paved path you'll start on Loop D, which is more of the same. When you come to a clearing/fire road, keep left to continue on to Loop E which runs right up on the shore of the lake in a few spots and also includes, surprise, more rock gardens. You'll come back to the fire road; again stay left to get back on Loop D.
This section actually has a little bit of flow and fewer rock gardens. Cross the paved path to get back on Loop C, and be rewarded with some of the flowiest sections of the trail. This section also includes some of the bigger climbs, but fun downhills as well. Cross the road again to get back on Loop B to Loop A for a bit of a cool down before ending the ride (or catching another lap).
