Chuck Heinrich Park

Chuck Heinrich Park

Located in the northeastern portion of the Franklin Mountains State Park, this area offers some of the best trails for mountain bikers who are new to the sport, and hikers will enjoy leisurely strolls along its many trails. It should be noted that signs at this particular park are scarce. Therefore, to access the park go north on Highway 54 and exit MLK and turn left (north). At Jon Cunningham Boulevard turn left (west) until the road dead ends at Chuck Heinrich Park. Follow the trail to the top of the concrete dam then turn left (south) until it reaches the trailhead.

With its longer network of easy to moderate trails, this park is the perfect place for beginning mountain bikers to wet their feet. Bikers can travel along the Lazy Cow and Mad Cow trails for a great experience and fantastic views. Detailed routes for the various bike trails within the park can be found at www.GeoBetty.com.
