Great variation of terrains and sights. Pretty enclosed most of the way. Thoroughly enjoyed it

Be warned, these trails, the whole park does not allow bicycles. I learned that when I was asked to leave. I did not notice the sign at the entrance to the park which was very small. However I did spend quite a bit of time on the trail before one of the staff members noticed me. It is a great trail that I was told they are hoping to open to mountain bikes before to long. Some great downhills and views. I got caught in a couple unexpected sand traps and beware of mud in the low lying areas. It appears to be trafficked heavily by horses so after a rain the trails are very rutted and rough. Bring a full suspension bike if you have one. Some hike and bike parts. Great views of the river at some places. Will go again when it opens to bike.

Nice trail...great to see the new fancy zip line that they put up here. We went after the rains though and the mud/clay was like glue on our boots that ended up feeling like a ton of extra weight...not to mention that we "slid" down a few hills. Will definitely wait until it's dry next time. Also the 6.8 loop was blocked off in places which ended up to be about 5.5. Was nice though.

Plenty of distance due to multiple trails and routes. I made approx. 6 mile loop (3+ hours) out the western side to Colorado River returning along eastern side. Saw maybe 5 other folks ... all friendly. Good leisurely workout, clean, fresh air, lot of nice scenery.
Access is from Hwy 71, not 969 by the way. $5 day use fee.

Really well-marked trail system. Most of it was runnable and great views of the Colorado River!

This trail is at McKinney Roughs Nature Area. There are many trails that are very nice there as well.
