    It's called Big Rocks Park. Ive been there once (w/o a bike) and it was amazing. Rounded rocks everywhere. With enough runup there could be some awesome ups out there.

    Next week is my Spring Break, Im going to go out there, take some photos of the area, and ride it a bit, ought to be pretty awesome. Anyway, if you come up again we ought to meet there and ride it briefly.

    Or some of you metroplex mongols could actually come down and ride it sometime. :x:

    I dont want to get use to seeing you ride anymore Seth, youre leaving us, it makes me sad. :( :p

    I love Purgatory and all, but the thing about this place is if you fall youre not skewered by one of the rocks. :ugh: Nah, Id ride Purgatory all day long if I could.

    From Dallas, at a time when there isnt a TON of traffic, you could get to Glen Rose in an hour and a half taking highway 67 or 377 (and then 144).

    Heh, it does look like heaven in the pic, the lady who took it says she used some ethereal Photoshop filters to get that look or something.

    The only thing I can think of that would hold us back is a sign that says something to the affect of, "Dont do anything to damage these rocks." That's the only way I figure we could get kicked off. If we did, Dinosaur Valley State Park is in the area with decent natural, and hopefully by then I will have the hookup out at one of these quarries in Granbury and we could ride there. Anyway, like I say, Ill go hit up Big Rock Park next week, take pics, ride, and see if I get the blue on my back about it.
