All these reviews on here saying it's not a good place to ride
or complaining about poor conditions, and bad workers, I've
never experienced. All of the employees are helpful,
especially the teenage kid who I heard is in college and
coming back for summer. I have fun every time I go out
here. Like others have said, it's Called "Trophy Club Park"
now and is run by the city of Trophy Club. Rules are
basically: wear a helmet, go the right way on the track and
trails, don't go too fast along the side of the paved road,
don't ride double, and don't drive a vehicle with no license
plate on the paved road (it's a public road). Those are all so
easy to follow though so it shouldn't be a big deal. As long
as you follow these rules, everyone working there is very
helpful (once again, especially the teenage kid as others
have said). As long as you follow the rules, you won't get in
trouble with the park gate guards or the police! The track is
sometimes worn down but they're trying to make it better.
Trails are always fun! Also has a very good wide open
beginner area for the kiddos! Definitely recommend!
It's called Trophy Club Park now because the town of Trophy
Club now runs it, not the Army Corps and it's in Trophy Club
not Grapevine. It's not the most difficult place at all, but it's
actually a lot of fun! About 6-7 miles of trails, fairly well
marked. The motocross track is about 1/2 mile long and it's
ok...not very difficult and maintained just to an acceptable
level. Heard they build a supercross track too (according to
parks dept. for the town).
Lots of these complaints people have on here, I haven't
had. It seems like the cost is well worth it with the beginner
area and advanced areas, especially with how close to the
metroplex it is!!! I understand closing for rain, otherwise
ATVs will rip it all up and make it not useable. Like another
user said: make sure to follow the rules, or you WILL get in
trouble. The gate guards will get on to you for it, and the
police WILL write tickets for stuff too. The rules are pretty
simple and obvious though...namely wear a helmet, ride
single only, don't speed along the side of the road, and
don't drive an unlicensed vehicle on the road (it is a city park
and public roadway...)
The teenage kid that works as a gate guard is sooo helpful
too!!! He helped me air up my tires, answers any questions,
is very respectful and nice! (I did see him get on to a guy for
going about 40 down the road, and told him if he did it
again, he'd have to leave, otherwise as long as you
cooperate very nice!)
I will definitely keep going back!
This park has about 6 miles of offroad trails (all marked and 1 direction only) plus a decent sized motocross track (also 1 way) that was built by Red Bull several years ago. They also have a really great beginner/youth track that is mostly flat with a few small hills. The park is not difficult overall. Mostly intermediate level trails. It may not be the best place for experts or pro riders, but for any recreational rider, it's definitely a lot of fun!
The only equipment they require is helmets. Also, they only allow dirtbikes and 4 wheelers off the pavement (so no jeeps or go carts or anything like that) "handlebars only" as they say up there. The park attendants are very helpful overall, especially the teenage kid that works up there. The police do active patrols so make sure to follow the rules (no double riding, follow manufacturer specs, stay off the paved road).
Also, the park is on Army Corps land and managed by the Town of Trophy Club so it's public property (hence staying off the public roadway). The Trophy Club Police do active patrols in the park and aren't afraid to cite people for breaking the law (park rules are all city ordinances).
Overall though, it's great and as long as you pay attention to the few rules they have, you definitely won't have any problems!
If you live in DFW and just need a place to go on a week night to play, practice, or tune your ride, this is a good alternative. You can ride every inch of the trails in a single afternoon.
Most of the trails are flat, winding hard pack. There is a decent MX track and an oval with jumps in the middle. That's about it. The do have a kids area, which is nice for new riders.
The entrance has an automated gate and (rarely) an old guy who sells TX OHV stickers (required, but I've never been checked). Last time I went, the price had gone up from $8 to $12 per bike. Yikes!
But if you just need a place to try out your new tires, carb tune up, or even shake out the cobwebs in Spring, it will do the job.
just wondering if it was worth taking the drive out to this place, and if they allow atc (3wheelers) in to ride, i have been riding at brushy creek, and has been great, but just wanted to try new location...
