you should map out he ride on a site like gmaps pedo, or mapmyride, or just ride it and give us GPS data to get a better idea what you are talking about. Good info thou, nice to see how the trails connect. I'd like to see the total mileage and elevation data.

now if I can just find a good way from there to hw 377, I guess up coit?

Here's my gps of the ride, my watch died on the return trip at George Bush. Don't judge me for my pace it was incredibly windy yesterday

But really those trails were terrible, don't think I'll ever bike in Plano again unless it's only on the roads.

I've ridden several of the paved trails in Plano, they were okay, but nothing special, either, mostly down powerline right-of-ways. And windy. The ones by the creek were nicer, but still slow if people were out.

Instead of going all the way up to the north end of the White Rock Trail, you could also pick up the Cottonwood Trail on the north side of Forest here:

Ride up the Cottonwood Trail to where it intersects the Preston Ridge Trail.
