Walnut Creek Metro Park

tx

Star Star Star Star Star

Distance: 4.7 miles


A totally urban park that feels rural with tons of fantastic single track packed into a small area. The combinations of rides/hikes are endless!
  • One possible trail head
  • Banked Turn
  • Trail Marker
  • Waterfall
  • Creek Crossing
  • Main Entrance

A friend told me about this park and I set off on my bike with high hopes, but I really did not expect to have such an awesome time an urban setting. This park is an absolute gem. Good climbs, river crossings, tight turns, fun downhills, you name it, it's in there. The trail density is extremely high and the trail markers are excellent so it is almost impossible to get lost. Arrows on each marker point you back to the main parking area and if you hit a fence or a neighborhood you have hit a dead-end, just turn it around and try another trail. We rode for 1.5 hours, never took the same trail twice, and there were still many trails we never hit. This park is a fast, easy escape.
