      Trail Description:
      Erwin Park is a city of McKinney public park. The trail is just around 10 miles. The trail is a mix of tight and twisty in the woods to some fast open field sections. There is plenty of climbing to get your heart rate up. Since you're going up, there are some fast and fun downhills as well. There are some technical sections and most of the technical sections have alternate (easy) routes around them. The last section of trail is called the expert section. There is an alternate route to your left crossing a bridge (left - easy; right - hard). This is the only alternate route with a bridge. Camping is allowed for a very nominal fee. Contact the city community center at 972-547-2690. They are located on the north bound service road of central, north of Eldorado Parkway.
