A note on camping -- We do not allow camping. The camping area is closed year-round.
Especially during wet weather, check the tweets just on the left side of this page for trail conditions, closings, or other news. Some of you know how to get Twitter to feed to your phone so you can get updates automatically.
Believers on Mountain Bikes is a monthly thing. Plans are to meet on Saturday once a month. There's some group discussion and fellowship for 20-25 minutes, and riding after. Search FaceBook for Believers on Mountain Bikes (North Texas). Fee is waived for all attendees but please complete the Liability Waiver in the Sign-In area.
In the Welcome shed, you sign-in, pay the fee of $3/person, and slip into the changing booth if needed. Tables and chairs are also here for your use. A reminder - The trail is what we are sharing. Stay on it please. Ride it responsibly, respecting that we have the trail built the way we like it - NEVER alter the trail. Never ride muddy trails. If you are riding here that means that you are a Friend. Help me protect the priviledge for you and others by speaking out if you see some bad behavior. Take your trash with you. Leave the "Friends" area clean for the next guy!
Before you come, please read the rules. Trail Tips Guests are asked to help us stay clean and safe; report any problems.
This Texas mountain bike trail is located in the limestone hills of the Paluxy River watershed. Just down the road is the Dinosaur Valley State Park.
Please keep in mind that the Solavaca is not just a trail but also is the home and private residence of the Hargrave's. Please respect the delicate balance between our hospitality and our privacy. Stay in the areas alloted for your use.

Welcome to my place. It is a nice place to kick back and soak in the good country. Or you could jump on your mountain bike and pump up, down, around and through the rock strewn hills and cedar covered reaches of the Solavaca - a Texas Mountain Bike Trail. The Solavaca is very diverse with enough trail to interest beginners as well as seasoned riders looking for techincal riding and single-track in the XC tradition. In 2008, we hosted our first mountain bike race. From 2010-13, we were a regular stop for the TMBRA XC Spring State Championship Series. In 2013 we also hosted Bryan Fawley's Fossil 50. Who knows what events we might do?
Special thanks to Larry Colvin, long-time President of the FWMBA. I met Larry in October, 2007. He took the time to hear about the trail and then to come ride it. Larry rode the trail twice in the next few months, offering suggestions both on the trail and on the mountain bike scene. Just watching him ride put things in another perspective. He continues to be a great advocate and a steady source of support on many levels.
