    You got that right. At least the sun finally came out today, so the trails should open any day now.

    Glad I stumbled on this thread. I just purchased a Specialized Hardrock SE Disc and none of my friends, coworkers or family rides. They're more than happy to quote Napoleon Dynamite to me though........ I live in the southern part of DFW.

    I'm trying to get my cardio and skill set up before tackling some of the better trails and eventually try a race or two. I've been on two wheels much of my life, as I just took a break from riding motorcycles.

It says expert only but i think its fine for new riders with a since of adventure. My wife made it threw it will little help from me.i wanna get my skills up for big cedar wilderness in dallas the video's look great lots of man made jumps wall rides and dh (down hill) type stuff. My main problem is work im in the oilfield so time off is not something i get a lot of i worlk 12hrs a day 7 days a week and its been over a month since my last day off and im in jacksboro does anyone no of a trail close to here i could hit after work?

    Closest place I know of is Mineral Wells State Park, but I don't advice riding there unless you enjoy riding sand. The trails are shared equestrian, hike and bike. Mostly sand and deep sand in places. Great perhaps for horses, but it's a b!tch to ride. Been there once and wouldn't think of returning for a bike ride.

    Possum Kingdom State Park might have some bikable trails...I dunno?

    I went to mineral wells a while back what a nightmare of a trail i got all the way to the back and had a flat with no spare i haven't heard of any trails by PK but it would be a great place for some with all those little mountains they have around there

    Most people park in the Redbird/Possum Kingdom Trail head parking lot, because there is excellent parking clean bathrooms and a water fountain. The Red Bird/Possum Kingdom Trail also is either an easy warm up trail on your way to the Johnson's Peak Trail, or an ideal beginner trail to take beginners to.

    It is the Johnson Peak Trail that ranks with Bar H, Tyler and Dinosaur Valley as one of the very best trails in North Texas. I say that because it has challenging singltrack, wonderful views of Possum Kingdom Lake, and the climb to that overlook is 350 feet. This is a must ride trail, if you are a good mountain biker. The fact that it is well marked is just icing on the cake.

    Just found this might be a good trail system

    Yes, mine is a HT. You don't need full suspension where I went (Blue Canyon & Ranger). Maybe somebody else on here can chime in regarding the more difficult trails.

    You don't need full suspension for any of the trails out there but bring your lungs and legs.

    Spoook is trying to scare you off from RCP with that video... at least the end of it.

    I rode Erwin for the first time on Friday. It is a fun trail. There isn't much climbing or hard things. The trail is fast and flowy. It would be a great trail to work out on all the time as there is enough going on without getting bored. There are enough fun features (dips, drops, etc) to make it interesting.
    Fat guys need bikes too.
