One of the better mountain bike mile loops in the metroplex. Was better, but man made modifications have been made to make it more a universal trail and a bit easier. Erwin was more technical single track than it is now but has a few challenges and has some cardio moments. Places in the trail that are more challenging are... More

My husband and I love to bike here at the weekends, he does the Trails and loves them. I just ride around the pard and enjoy taking in the beautiful surroundings and nature. Very well maintained for, biking, hiking or camping. Great place to go, we love that we live 5 minutes down the road from it.

The trail at Erwin Park is neither flat nor boring. It's not like riding in the Rockies, but for North Texas, it's a nice single-track, maybe one of the better ones I've ridden. Try riding a few days after a good rain for some serious fording across the streams. And for a more challenging course, turn left. The "difficult" section... More

Don't listen to the little weeny wieners, knocking the place because it is "hot". This is Texas moron, it's the plains in summer, what do you expect? If you can't hack it, move. I am from Arizona & while this isn't the great mountainous region of the Southwest or even Big Bend, the Chihuahuan or the Trans-Pecos, it is a... More

If you are into off-road bicycling then when you are in the area look this place up. It's not Moab but still a great place to ride. It has both technical and beginner trails and plenty of shade. Restrooms and water are both available as well.

Erwin park is nestled up in the northwest area of McKinney and we use it exclusively for mountain biking. When the temperature is below 95F, this park is very nice due to the combination of cool, shady riding in the woods and sunny, open field-traverses. When the mercury gets up past 95F, it's best to ride this trail early morning... More

Erwin Park in McKinney is a nice place to spend a few hours. It has bike trails and plenty of picnic tables. You can also go for a walk or jog along the road. The bathrooms need to be maintained; my wife said there were no doors on the stalls. And some of the picnic tables are in disrepair; for... More

Hike with the wife and kids, nothing to difficult and great place for the kids to explore. Bike with with buddies. Couple difficult spots (keep elbows in) but great workout.

It's amazing to me how few people ever visit this park! The grounds are well maintained and it's nestled back off the main road by a barrier of trees. Lovely covered pavilion for a family picnic and several different areas of playground equipment for the kiddos.
