The thrill next door
Mountain biking is an increasingly popular sport, with benefits that include spending quality time with the family, getting a total body workout, and keeping safe and away from cars and traffic. It’s pretty fun, too.
Hollyhock residents enjoy an awesome mountain biking opportunity that’s practically in their backyard. It’s the Frisco Mountain Bike Trail, located on the future site of Northwest Community Park, at Teel Parkway and Glory View.
In the future, Hollyhock’s own 4.2-mile community trail system will connect to Northwest Community Park. For now, it’s a very easy to ride or drive over to the mountain bike trails for a thrilling experience.
With total distance of 8.1 miles, including 650 feet of climbing, these trails are built and maintained by volunteers with the Dallas Off Road Bicycle Association, the Shawnee Trail Cycling Club and the Frisco Cycling Club, in partnership with the City of Frisco.
There are four loops, from the beginner-friendly Ranger Loop, to the steep and winding Redhawk Track.
Joggers and walkers are also encouraged to enjoy these trails.
The BMX Pumptrack and Dirt Jump Park is right next to the Mountain Bike Trail. Also maintained by volunteers, this one-acre park is designed for beginner, intermediate and advanced riders.
The BMX Pumptrack offers a continuous dirt loop of rollers and berms, similar to a BMX track, but smaller in scale.
The Dirt Jump Park challenges riders to get airborne as they practice single jumps or link maneuvers through the course.
Hollyhock is excited to be the next-door neighbor for these mountain bike trails at Northwest Community Park, a future 164-acre park that will undergo a master planning process. It’s part of about 40 City of Frisco park sites totaling nearly 1,400 acres, and a big reason why Frisco is always at the top of quality of life rankings.
