Your run begins at the northernmost tip of the Cross Timber Black Trail. This trail follows an old doubletrack dirt road for the entirety of its journey. There are a couple of short hills that have lots of loose rocks so mind your footing. Other than that, your path is mostly hard pack dirt/sand providing a great surface free of tripping hazards. This trail enjoys sweeping views across a large meadow that is filled with wildflowers and wildlife. Need a break? Spend some time trying to spot one of the red-tailed hawks that call this meadow home. This route is very easy to navigate and is a large loop that eventually dumps you out right back where you started. This trail is also used to connect with the Cross Timbers Orange Trail
, Cross Timbers Yellow Trail
, and the Primitive Camping Trail
. Overall, this route is a nice way to enjoy some sunshine and the local flora and fauna.
Information on the local flora and fauna can be found on the park's website
