Approximately 5 miles
of mostly singletrack trail located on the southwest corner of the UT
Tyler campus, the trailhead is on Lake Drive, just off University Blvd.
This trail was designed and built by three local mountain bikers in
cooperation with the UTT staff in an effort to increase riding options
The trail is generally ridden in one direction, with blue blazes on the right side of trail, and some white wooden signs with arrows also along the trail. The trail is fast yet twisty and maintains great flow, with several obstacles located along the trail, including: jumps, launches, a teeter-totter, balance beam, bridges, and pump sections. Elevation change is moderate, especially for the area, and includes several sets of switchbacks.
Hats off to the guys who made this trail, and to UTT for allowing their property to be used in such a beneficial way.
Bottom line: Fun fast trail that feels like a combination of Faulker Park and Tyler State Park. Awesome trail in the Tyler area.
