    Palo Duro Canyon with Kids

    I'm taking my 7 & 9 year old to Palo Duro Canyon for some hiking and biking. Both of them have Orbea kids mountain bikes with rim brakes. Are they going to have any issues with only having rim brakes on the trails there? Both are decent riders.

    Any recommended trails or ones to avoid?

    Rim brakes in Palo should be fine. Snakes are more a concern than brakes.

    Do you use Trailforks?

    You didn't quit riding because you're old, you're old because you quit riding.

    Thanks fredcook! Hopefully it will be cool enough that we won't have to worry about snakes, but we are always on the lookout! My wife actually ran over a copperhead a few weeks ago at one of our local trails!

    I don't use Trailforks, but it looks great. I'll be sure and download it for our trip.

    Using Trailforks has the advantage of not requiring cell coverage, which may be useful at Palo Duro.
