Big Cedar Wilderness Trails (BCWT) are rapidly turning into a "Northshore" riding paradise. There are several different riding options, there is one loop built for beginners, one intermediate loop and three advanced loops. The trail is well marked and is continually being expanded.
The wooden plank sections are starting to look more and more like the trails in you see in the Whistler BC area and some of the people riding them are amazing. This should be on everyone's must ride list.
Length: 6 miles and growing
Directions: map read
Roughly six miles of singletrack loops. Well maintained without being overly invasive. On church owned property. Church has generously offered use of facilities for restroom/water. Waiver required to ride. Available at kiosk at trailhead or www.dorba2.com. Great views and boasts the highest elevation in Dallas.
PS: The trail closes at dark
Orange is a nice beginner loop winding through the trees.
White is the central loop that connects all the other loops. There are some very fast runs, moderately technical areas, and some serious climbs.
Blue is a short fast winding run down the hill, then the climb back up the main drive to the trailhead.
Yellow is the most technical loop with some dips connected by switchbacks.
Green is a nice easy loop with some mild dips and minimal climbing.
Red is for those who like to climb. Lots of climbing and lots of switchback climbs.
Near the trail head there is a downhill area for experts only. There is a ramp to a platform giving you what looks like a 7 or 8 foot drop into the trail. I haven't ridden this (yet).
There are some dirt jumps for BMXers.
They have also stacked some huge rocks for a trials area.
Something for everyone here. It's up to you how far you want to push yourself any given day.
Nice...very well built trail. LOTS of elevation change...challenging climbs. Best XC in DFW!
By far the best trail in dfw. Kudos to shadow for his vision. If you are looking for a lung buster this is it. Trail is close to twenty miles long. Free ride as well as down hill runs. If you haven't ridden big cedar you have no business calling any other trail in dfw the best. Next best trail IMO is Samson park
