Kev it looks good, I'm in even if it kills me. That part of the levee was cool last fall, doubt it will be a prob. There are ways around purt near any of that section. On the levee or in the bottoms we should be cool.

I'm more worried about surviving the first 30 miles or so, after that it should be gravy. If it don't get wet some more.

We will have a 50ish mile option available that catches the TRE in Irving but it would leave out the Dallas Levees and LB Houston.

MonsterCross Mayhem Bible

http://goo.gl/maps/I73NQ the course will be marked to the best of our ability but arrows can come down so we recommend loading this map to be accessible from your smart phone or at least print out these instructions.

Free parking all day Saturday in the parking garage at the corner of 3rd and Taylor
Staging/Start will be at Trinity Bicycles (less than a block from the garage) 343 Throckmorton. Be there no later than 8am.
We are providing a route for people who are interested in this type of adventure to follow. There is no other support available. Riders are all responsible for their own well being and are expected to obey the rules of the road. There will be no SAG vehicles and no formal check in process. No part of this ride is more than 5 minutes from a bus stop or a spot where a cab can pick you up if needed. The route is all publicly accessible to the best of our knowledge but we assume no responsibility should you make a wrong turn onto private property or if previously public areas are closed off for various reasons.

Segment 1 Start to East 1st St/Gateway Park
Controlled/Mass Start from Trinity Bicycle up Throckmorton to Taylor St and the entrance to the Trinity Trails in Fort Worth. Riders may ride paved or unpaved trails their choice. They both go to the same place. Approximately 1 mile into the Trinity Trail there will be a low water crossing on the right. Cross the river here. There will be no other river crossings in Ft. Worth. Follow the Trinity Trail approximately another 6 miles until it ends just after Beach St. Do not take the water crossing on the left, follow the dirt trails (should be marked) to take the Gateway singletrack new sections all the way to E. 1st St. Turn right at the street.

Segment 2 Gateway to River Legacy
Proceed East on 1st St to the paved trail on the left. Follow paved trail through Quanah Parker Park and the proceed East on Randol Mill (formerly 1st St). Randol Mill will cross over 820 14 miles into total route. Plenty of stores/etc in this area. Keep East on Randol Mill to Williams and go South to Lowery. East on Lowery to Cooks. South on Cooks to Meadowbrook. East on Meadowbrook to Dottie Lynn Pkwy. South on Dottie Lynn for about .75 miles. This is a busy road so ride carefully. Left (East) at park entrance. Follow paved trail NE until it comes out on MeadowBrook/Green Oaks. Stay on paved trail entire way to unofficial back entrance of River Legacy Park. Back entrance is gated dirt road for Tramel Davis road. Cross under the gate it's okay. Follow dirt road until you connect with River Legacy paved trails. Follow paved trails to mtb trail head. Please reference the map if you aren't familiar with the park. Do any or none of the loops that you wish here. It's a good trail so might as well hit it all. Follow main road out of park to Green Oaks.

Segment 3 River Legacy to Dallas Levees
Proceed East on Green Oaks .75 miles to Lincloln and head South to Brown. Follow Brown across 360 where it turns into Avenue K which becomes Duncan Perry. Turn left at Egyptian Way. Follow Egyptian Way East until it turns South and becomes NW 7th St. Turn left on Palace Pkwy. Follow Palace Pkwy to Belt Line. Turn North on Belt Line until you cross the river before Lone Star Park. Look to the right for the paved trail. Follow the paved trail south and east of Lone Star Park to Hunter Ferrell. Go east on Hunter Ferrell which is under construction. You can ride the construction side all the way through to MacArthur. Take MacArthur North to pick up east bound Hunter Ferrell again. Turn right at the entrance to Campion Trails Park. Take paved trail to Shady Grove and go East. 50 milers will take Irving Blvd west to the train station 75 milers will begin the Dallas Levees section after the Irving Blvd Bridge.

Segment 4 Dallas Levees to LB Houston
Follow Shady Grove/Irving Blvd Bridge over Trinity River and look for levee access on the right. You will start a levee lollipop from this point so some of the ride will be hit both out and back so you may cross paths with riders going the other way. Generally speaking you will want to stay on top of the levees except for some of the bridge crossings. Follow the levee East to the Westmoreland bridge (1st bridge) and ride under the bridge south to cross the river. Follow the levees East/Southeast to the Santa Fe Trestle bridge and recross the river. Follow the levees the other direction back to Westmoreland Bridge and double back towards Shady Grove/Irving Blvd Bridge. This time go under the bridge and follow the levees all the way to Harry Hines Blvd where they dead end. Cross Harry Hines at Stokers and follow Shorecrest to Denton Dr. Left on Denton Dr to Lombardy. Left on Lombard to Shady Trail. Right on Shady Trail to Manana Dr. Left on Manana Dr to Newkirk. Left on Newkirk and cross NW Highway to California Crossing. California Crossing to Wildwood. Left on Wildwood to LBH trail entrance on the RIGHT. Follow LBH trail all the way back around to Wildwood and then Left on Wildwood towards 114.

Segment 5 LB Houston back to Funky Town
Wildwood to South to traffic light at access road to John Carpenter Fwy/114. Left at traffic light on sidewalk because the road is one way. Follow sidewalk to train station and hop on the train. $5 for a a 2 hour all regions pass or $10 for all day pay at the kiosk. Take DART train to Victory Station (AAC) and board TRE train to Fort Worth. You can get off the train at Intermodal station if you want to go directly to Trinity Bicycles/Parking garage asap. Stay on the train to final stop if you wish to visit the T&P Tavern at the T&P Station. Very easy pedal in almost a straight line from T&P to Trinity Bicycles.
