Copper Breaks in North Texas attracts expert riders with its Big Loop Trail cutting through rugged badlands, alternating between old ranch roads and narrower rocky sections with steep descents. ~TPWD

Welcome to Copper Breaks The trailhead right behind park HQ Heading out right after the trailhead Riding the wide path past Lake Copper Breaks Heading up into Rocky Ledges Loop
One of the nicer sections of singletrack And so the rockiness begins Just as the name implies... Yep, the ledges are indeed rocky Could they have named this section any better?
I mildly technical section along Rocky Ledges I'd stick to the right here A loose little descent to keep you smiling Please heed all signage Turn the corner and it is definitely a sudden drop off
Probably one of the best views of both landscape and trail Unfortunately a fair portion of the trail is like this Watch the large, flat rocks at water crossing A little wide-open doubletrack to get your cranks spinning Between erosion and horses, some sections are a bit rough The Bull Canyon Hiking Trail trailhead Perhaps not the most thrilling section of Copper Breaks Chris' Link offers some of the better singletrack here Get some speed going before you hit these moguls
In the open areas look for the trail markers to stay on track You can also follow the other tracks if there are any Looking out into Bull Canyon Make the turn or else fall into Bull Canyon, your choice
Bull Canyon Trail offers some of the more technical sections and more singletrack Turn here and descend into Bull Canyon The fast initial descent into the Canyon below Starting the ascent back out of Bull Canyon
