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.

 The elevation listed here is incorrect. You're only going to get roughly 560 ft from this segment (my Strava gives me a little different elevation each time). I'm not even sure if the entire trail (west + east) is 1,200 feet. Also, what is traditionally considered east side includes the next loop up to the MADD shelter parking lot.
