We hiked the bike trail and it was a nice little hike! We only did trail A & B before hitting the main "walking" trail and heading back, but next time we will finish trail C too!
Trail was nice, but short, the actual walking trail is only 1 mile. It was super crowded. The biking trails are nice, lots of shade, easy to follow and relatively quiet. If you have dogs be careful, the general public doesn't feel the need to abide by leash laws.
It's not super hard or exhilarating, but it's a fun 40min loop. Definitely worth going to for a quick bit of fun. I definitely recommend it for the Tyler area.
This trail is close to home so I ride it often. Their seems to be a lot of wildlife in this area I see deer all the time out here.
Great trails for hiking. Nice 1.25 and 2 mile trails with signage. Mostly shaded. 95% of it is nice, wide, even trails. We even took our baby in her stroller this time. The bike trails look like fun too. The bike trails are very shaded. Small trees close to the bike trails so that makes for more fun. lol!
Trail system is pretty good but a little confusing, parts of the trail back up to a residential area and another part enters a BMX dirt biking area if you're interested. The trail is well maintained and relatively popular so keep an ear and eye out for a cyclist or hiker.
Great park to get out side and enjoy nature...nice trail around the lake then transforms into a dirt trail... Flows very nice for a first time guest who doesn't know the trail...great park for a daily ride..not hard at all. Also no fee to enter park...
Very well flowing XC/AM trail with a few technical/fun sections. Wish it was marked so I knew where to go better.
Very good intermediate trail. 6.8 miles, with good downhill areas and some decent climbs. For advanced riders it's got a few locations allocated to them that will give them speed, and opportunities to jump, and drop in. Mild on stumps, some narrow passage for wider handles in between the trees, and some lose dirt which gives way with a set of thinner tires. All in all great E. Texas trail though.
The Faulkner Park Trail is primarily a mountain bike trail located in South Tyler at the city-owned Faulkner Park. Its located adjacent to my neighborhood and makes for a perfect local getaway just about every day of the week. As far as mountain biking goes, the trail is a single track trail with several loops that come back to a major crushed-brick pathway. At about 6 miles long, its not long or very hard, so that even someone with very limited mountain biking experience can enjoy. There are several obstacles throughout the corse, but especially towards the end of the last loop there are some more advanced obstacles for more experienced riders.
