How bad is it?

Go very early as Marshall Creek is a good place to get killed on the weekend.

It's been about 30 years :o since I've been to Marshall Creek. Has it really gotten that bad? I would like to find a place to take my daughter to do some non mx riding and got to wondering about Marshall Creek. Sounds like it may not be the best place to go.

Jeff, MC is a great place to ride. The only problem is that there are way too many people there on the weekend. The trails chris-cross over each other and that has lead to a number of collisions. Some recently have been fatal. During the week the place is a ghost town and you can get some good riding in. The soil is excellent sandy loam and sand. I live about 15 minutes south of there in Colleyville so I may try to hook up with ya'll if it is early.

Agreed, I would stop in Muenster coming from OK. It has much better trails to ride. DFW does have a lot of MX tracks to choose from. At least one of which is open for practice during the weekend.

There are a lot of mx tracks in the DFW area, I like Village creek, but quit going 2 years ago when I wadded up my KLX and broke my leg after coming up short on a set of doubles and being landed on by another bike :(

Penguin, sorry to hear about that. The tracks around here are not oriented to casual trail bikes. They all are designed with modest SX layouts. I personally, never go near any of the tracks around here with anything but my full tilt MX bike set up with the stiffest suspension I can run.
