Frisco Mountain Bike Trail
If calm, cool and relaxed is your style the Frisco mountain bike trail at NW Community park is for you. Currently the trail is right at 8 miles with more mileage and a bike park in the planning stages. This trail is a great piece of easy-rolling singletrack located just off the corner of Panther Creek and Teel parkway in Frisco Texas. It is the only mountain bike trail in Frisco and sits just minutes from both the Dallas North Tollway as well as Hwy 380 between McKinney and Denton.
The Frisco mountain bike trail is a great trail for beginners with a smooth and non-technical flow. The more advanced rider has a couple of whoop-de-doos and tight turns to keep them entertained. The trail is very open and there isn’t a lot of shade, which can make for a hot ride during the summer and a chilly ride on a windy winter day. The most recent trail additions with the Redhawk and Coyote loops have added a considerable amount of climbing to the trail as it now has roughly 750 feet of climbing per lap. Additional trails in the area can be found to the north at Isle Du Bois State Park, east at Erwin Park or south at Arbor Hills Nature Preserve.
Ranger is the outer loop, identified by the Blue markings. There are waypoint markers number from 1-9 along the trail. The map also identifies the “Junkyard” turn as well. Ranger markers are painted Blue. Ranger is approximately 2.5 miles in length and beginner friendly.
Wolverine is identified by the Orange markings. Waypoint markers are numbered 1-5 and on Orange posts. As one approaches the end of Wolverine there is a bypass that will allow you to repeat Wolverine if you choose. Wolverine is approximately 1.1 miles in length and includes some tighter turns, steeper climbs, and some tight tree gates.
Shortly after coming off of Wolverine another intersection will give you the option of going left onto the newest loop, Coyote which is the yellow lines on the map. This loop is the most technical loop on the trail with many off camber sections and tree gates and is officially 1.8 miles long.
Redhawk is identified by the Red track. Waypoint markers are numbered 1-5 and on Red posts. As one approaches the end of Redhawk there is a bypass that will allow you to repeat Redhawk if you choose. Redhawk is approximately 1.5 miles in length and includes some big down hills, and some long climbs.
Beginners and kids will love it here at the Frisco mountain bike trail and experienced riders will have no trouble pushing a fast lap in hopes of setting a new Strava record. The flat, wide-open course is a tremendous addition to the Dallas bike trails scene. There is a small parking lot, additional parking should be done on the dirt road on Teel. There are no restroom facilities, however there is a gas station just 1.5 miles away at the corner of 423 and Panther Creek Parkway.
