      Sewer line construction will start in September 2019 that will place a sewer line from the California Crossing park to Wildwood Drive. This will affect the California Crossing parking lot, the dirt road south of the parking lot and will also cross the trail in several locations. Due to safety concerns, this portion of the trail will remain closed for the duration of the project, which could take up to two and a half years. We will provide additional updates as the project progresses.


      The L.B. Houston Park mountain bike trail (10 miles) is within the L.B Houston Greenbelt and the Elm Fork Greenbelt in Northwest Dallas near the Elm Fork of the Trinity River.

      This is a beginner to intermediate trail with over 10 miles that is well-marked with markers signifying turns, hills etc. This trail is ideal for both endurance building rides and leisurely rides.
