TexPlex Park (Midlothian, TX)

I decided to take a ride out to texplex this weekend to try out the trails on the XR. Overall, I was very impressed. At the moment, they only have one single track trail that is just barely over 3 miles long. From what I understand, they do plan to expand it at some point (hopefully soon). The trail has a couple creek crossings and tight steep-ish turns in the woods. I haven't made it out to trophy club or any of the other trails around the metroplex yet so I can't really compare. But I would say there is definately enough to be worth the $25entry fee. The park is very well staffed and there were people everywhere to help if needed. They had orange coolers full of water if you have some kind of bottle or camelback.

The motocross track was very nice. In fact, I met some really nice guys on KTMs riding the big motorcross track they talked me into taking a lap on the XR. The dirt was freshly worked and very loose but it was still alot of fun. Now I want a dirtbike!

I haven't tried it myself, but from what I understand they have a ton of other stuff to do including a shotgun sporting clay range and a fully dedicated ATV/Side-by-side track. I have no affiliation with the place whatsoever and get nothing for this shout out. I just had a ton of fun out there and thought I would share for those who either haven't heard of it, or are debating whether or not to go.

If anyone wants to check it out one weekend, give me a shout. Since I live in Cedar Hill, it's practically in my back yard.

Do they have a website? I have a buddy that lives in Cedar Hill and is thinking of getting his son into dirt bikes, but he needs a place to ride.

Quote:
"However lofty the goals, if the means be depraved, the result must reflect that depravity." - Leonard E. Read

Lies are fragile. They require constant attentiveness to keep them alive. The exposure of a single truth can rip through an ocean of lies, evaporating it instantly. - Brandon Smith

If you want government to intervene domestically, you’re a liberal. If you want government to intervene overseas, you’re a conservative. If you want government to intervene everywhere, you’re a moderate. If you don’t want government to intervene anywhere, you’re an extremist. — Joe Sobran

It is no crime to be ignorant of economics, which is, after all, a specialized discipline and one that most people consider to be a ‘dismal science.' But it is totally irresponsible to have a loud and vociferous opinion on economic subjects while remaining in this state of ignorance. – Murray N. Rothbard

When one possessed of the Truth suffers from a heavy heart he is susceptible to a more dangerous affliction — the craving for power to eradicate error, to cause Truth to triumph by force. - Frank Chodorov

Where politicians flourish, long history has harshly taught us, people and their liberty wither. Where the state is god and the "public interest" worshipped, individual man will be found bleeding upon the altar. - Karl Hess

The accepted wisdom is that without the state, society would collapse into lawlessness and crime. In fact, lawlessness and crime define the very nature of the state and the society organized by it. - Bionic Mosquito

But the myth of the rule of law does more than render the people submissive to state authority; it also turns them into the state's accomplices in the exercise of its power. For people who would ordinarily consider it a great evil to deprive individuals of their rights or oppress politically powerless minority groups will respond with patriotic fervor when these same actions are described as upholding the rule of law. - John Hasnas

Re: TexPlex Park (Midlothian, TX)

I'm planning on taking my 2009 Versys there pretty soon. The Royal Enfield Himalayan bike was rode there for a test by Cycleworld and it was able to handle their park. Since the Royal is about 421 pounds dry and my Versys is 454 dry, I'm pretty sure the bike will be able to handle their trails. That does not mean I will be able to handle it.

I'm thinking of the first Saturday in May (5-5-18, Sinkhole-dey-mayo?) to try out my new Shinko 705 tires? I know that's the same weekend as Ghost's Beat the Heat Camp and Ride, but I figure someone around the DFW metroplex won't be able to make that and will be looking to ride somewhere.

Re: TexPlex Park (Midlothian, TX)

I just noticed that is the same weekend as the TAR in Austin as well so I may be alone. I don't have a camera on my helmet yet so I don't think I'll get any video, but I'll try to get some pics while I'm there. 2 weeks is a long time to wait. I may go sooner.

Re: TexPlex Park (Midlothian, TX)

Any new reviews of this park? I might want to check this out. Maybe put together a South O' The Plex meetup for dirt riders?
