The trail was marked ‘Closed’ when I got out there today. It looked dry not sure why it was closed.

Best marked trail I’ve visited. Ran the Ranger (blue) trail. Signs of recent mud, but it’s virtually all dry.

Trail is definitely designed for bikes, given the u-shaped trough throughout much of the loop. A few sections are more v-shaped and pretty much only fit a tire, not a shoe-width, but don’t let it deter you from running here. Lots of cyclists, all were courteous.

Love this trail it's close to where I live and it's easy enough for me to train since I'm a beginner in mountain biking, it's very clean and well marked also!

Trails really designed for bikes. Trails narrow and furrows deep making hiking difficult and uncomfortable.

Solid trail for an hour or two of mountain biking. The main outer loop (Ranger) has a couple of climbs and one drop but it's pretty tame overall. The orange (Wolverine) loop was a little more twisty with a couple tree gates. Also did the Racoon loop which takes you up to a nice overlook of the area. Would definitely go back to clean up my lines.

We hiked the trail even though it appears to primarily be a bike trail. We had two alltrails apps recording our mileage and we each came up with about 3.3. I think the map says 2.6. Just be aware of the extra distance.

Great community project with a dedicated set of volunteers. Hikers will have to move over for mountain bikers frequently on the main "Ranger" loop but some of the interior trails are less crowded on the weekends.

Fairly easy multi-loop trail in Frisco. About 9 miles total (all loops), well maintained by DORBA. Be aware of the direction you're traveling and watch for hikers.

Beware of Mesquite thorns... have had a few flats while riding out here.
