      Dana Peak is a typical Central Texas trail with some hard pack, and limestone fixed and loose rock climbing and descending. Interestingly, very few roots that I recall. Nothing overly technically challenging, but those not used to cardio or grinding up may find themselves huffing and puffing on the hills. Some might find negotiating loose pack coming down the hills a bit of a challenge. Some of the trail is wider than single track on the west end, but there's plenty of nice old school hand cut single track. I rode it on a 130mm/130mm trail bike, but an XC FS or hard tail will do just fine here. As for difficulty, some sites rate it as 'intermediate' to 'very difficult'. I think it's more beginner to intermediate, but difficulty rating is always subjective. If you're a North Texas/DFW rider, Dana Peak is technically/aerobically similar to Knob Hill, which is rated beginner to intermediate. All in all, a nice trail worth riding. I will stop by here again for a quick fun ride when passing though Bell County. Thanks to those who maintain it.
