As a avid hiker this lollipop trail is worth the visit. Well maintained throughout the year, for the most part the mountain bikers are polite and respectful. Around seven miles overall with plenty of shortcuts leading back to parking lots. Recommend to arrive early to beat the crowds.

This was a nice surprice. Well maintained trails in a large park. Nice view, but hard to find. If you like trail running or biking this is an excellent spot

With the drought not as green as usual and many water spots are dried out but still a great place to hike and bike and tons of eating options nearby

This park is a hidden gem. I have lived in McKinney for several years and stumbled upon it by accident. You truly feel like you are transported to another place - there are hills, nature trails, creeks, campsites and wildflowers. It's worth the trip!

Please keep your head up while riding on the trail, there are some spots that will require skills with quick turns, log jumps, and it will knock your breath away. GREAT trail. Camping permits are granted by the Community Center, and is a quiet park.

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.
