      Rowlett Creek Preserve trail is located in the city of Garland’s public multi-use park at the intersection of Castle and Centerville Roads. The trail is currently over 16 miles long and since it is built on a staked loop system a trail user can choose various loop combinations to obtain distances that vary from 1 to 16 miles. The trail is currently comprised of 14 connected loops; those numbered 1, and 7 through 14 are north of the parking lot and those numbered 2 through 6 are on the south side. These loops are numbered in the manner in which they were built so for those first time riders, the layout may not seem to be intuitive thus it’s a good idea to either follow someone that knows the trail system or bring along a copy of the trail map. The direction of travel for all loops is CLOCKWISE. About half of the trail mileage is in the trees with some areas that are tight and twisty. The rest is out in open with some fast, straight field sections. Most of the trail is flat with only a few relatively short climbs. There are a number of areas of the trail that come close to an edge mainly along one of the three creeks that pass through the RCP greenbelt. In general as the Loop ID number increases so does the skill level required to negotiate it. The trail maps are marked in ski area fashion with green, blue and black skill levels [i.e. easier, more difficult, and most difficult respectively]. This is a multi-use trail so please be considerate of all other trail users.
