Lindsey Park is the newest mountain bike trail in the Tyler area and it features about 15 miles of beginner to intermediate-level trail spread across four main loops. This trail is considered one of the most flowing trails in East Texas, and is very popular with local and area residents.
Lindsey Park has some relatively tough climbs and descents, and you’ll need some ability to handle your bike well in thick sand. For example, the “35 mph” downhill is often very sandy along the fastest portion of the descent.
B Loop tends to the be last to dry, and is sometimes too wet to ride even when the rest of the trail is open. There is a bypass to skip B Loop that you’ll find just before the first field cross that goes under the power lines. Make sure to turn left if you want to use this bypass.
All of the latest additions to the trail—approximately 5 miles of switchbacks and lengthened trail—were mostly made to D Loop. These new additions are tighter than most of the preexisting trail in some places. There are marked bypasses and exits if you need to cut your ride short. Stay on the main route to finish the entire 15 miles.
The trail is well marked after the donation of new signage by a local business. You’ll find wall rides, berms, jumps, climbs, skinnies, long bridges (400ft!), punchy climbs, and fast descents.
