The trial is maintained by the Dallas Off Road Bicycle Association (dorba.org)

Erwin Park is a city of McKinney public park. The trail is just around 8.1 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 trail does have some dips. 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.

The trail is closed when it's wet and DORBA does an awesome job keeping trial status updated - visit the site and get the app.

Access Info

After entering the park follow the winding paved street and stay left at the fork. There's a parking lot visible on the right and many people park here and access the trail. If you continue a little farther down there's another parking lot which is the true trail head with trail map posted. There are restrooms at this second lot and a bike service station at the trail head.
