Welcome to Squabble Creek A rather detailed trail map is posted at the trailhead Pretty simple, right? Your future holds a few ups and downs Trail bypass is rather clearly marked both on the map and on the trail
There's plenty of trail packed in this parcel of land, so you will often see where you are going and where you have been Seeing other riders nearby isn't uncommon here Who doesn't love a soft winding stretch of singletrack? Winding through the pines, some sections are wide singletrack If you have riders of different levels with you don't worry about splitting up; the split is short lived
Here's what awaits you along the Hi-Road More of what you love! Though tempting to open it up, just watch for other trail users Quick ups and downs along Squabble Creek Loop 6 heads off under Lakeshore Drive, but you can choose to bear right and stay on Loop 5
Loop 6 parallels itself on the way in and out Zipping along the backside of Loop 6


  Squabble Creek is a City of Rockwall public park. The trail is currently 6.0 miles of looped singletrack with more planned. Once in the parking lot, look for the cedar and stone kiosk to find a map, park rules and other information or updates via the bulletin board. This area has the picnic table, restroom, water fountains and bike wash; with paved parking to accommodate approximately 20 vehicles. A cedar stained 4x4 engraved with "Squabble Creek" notes the beginning of the trail for bikers. This trail holds a surprisingly varied amount of wildlife for a city park.
  The trail curves and turns through some climbs on the first mile of wooded hillside. The next sections consist of tight and twisty switchbacks, followed by fast, flowing singletrack with some very fun rollers back along the creek. There is an option to cross under Lakeshore Dr. bridge and pick up an extra mile of riding on the new loop. Lastly, the current exit is an old fire road leading back to the parking area. Most of the trail is under a heavy canopy of shade trees. The terrain is mostly hardpack with a lot of roots scattered throughout.
  The City of Rockwall also has a concrete trail incorporated into the Squabble Creek Trailhead and has a master plan for a concrete trail system. Currently, the most scenic route would be to head east from the trailhead down the bike path which crosses under Hwy 205, winds briefly through a neighborhood and finally connects to Caruth and Phelps Lake area. The lakes area park is mostly water but should eventually get additional bike paths, expansion of a dock and creation of a wildlife/wetlands education center. These concrete trails are a nice out and back addition to add mileage and variety.
