Located at the northern-most portion of Ray Roberts State Park, the Johnson Branch unit on the northern shores of Lake Ray Roberts features almost 9 miles of intermediate to expert-level technical trails. There is approximately 760 feet of climbing on a full lap. Beginner riders are encouraged to bypass some of the more technical sections—particularly the experts only Red Loop—by taking the fire road to the start of the Yellow Trail
You’ll need a Texas State Parks annual pass to enter, or pay $7 per person at the main gate.
It’s highly recommended you do not ride this trail alone. Most riders do not receive adequate cell service.
To find the main trailhead, enter the park from County Road FM 3002 and drive to the first campground entrance on the right—Dogwood Canyon. The trailhead is clearly marked—look for a wooden kiosk in the northeast corner of the parking lot.
