    Offroad Trails around DFW?

    Well my bike is on its way, should be here this Friday. Can someone suggest a good beginner off road trail that I could take it out to and try her out this weekend?

    Thanks in advance guys.

    Check out the A and B loops at Z Boaz and if you don't have any problems there then try Sansom Park.

    +1 on dorba.org (Dallas Offroad Bike Assoc). They list trails/addresses with maps of the trails. Good stuff.

    one more +1 on http://dorba.org ... the absolute closest trail to downtown is L.B. Houston (http://www.dorba.org/trails/trail_guide/lbhou.html), but it's worth the (relatively) short drive to Cedar Hill (http://www.dorba.org/trails/trail_guide/chsp.html) if open. This page -- http://dorba.org/index_jscript.html is your friend. Unlike other parts of the country, it is very VERY taboo to ride on muddy trails in DFW. Keep that in mind....

    Also, www.fwmba.org. They are a young club, but they maintaine zboaz and sansom. If you ae here for only a couple of days, I would recommend sansom over zboaz.
