The east side of Northshore is fairly easy but a lot of fun. This is DFW's most popular trail so be prepared for my riders, joggers, and walkers on the weekend. It is very well marked with plenty of parking. Not many climbs and only 2 or 3 semi-tricky rock sections.

 Trail is a one way direction for mtn bikes. Has been for several years. East side is easier with optional jumps, senders and table tops. Some nice berms on switchbacks. West side is very technical to most and is for intermediate to advanced riders. Ledge drops and climbs, punchy climbs, rocky sections that drop and have to climb.
