FYI: Saw it on Dorba. Wonder if it's cross bike friendly. Might be something to check out one day

“MEET ME IN THE MIDDLE”
A PRESS RELEASE FOR THE NORTHEAST TEXAS TRAIL (NETT)

The organizers of the new Northeast Texas Trail (NETT) have scheduled its inaugural event to introduce the multi-use trail to potential users. On Saturday, May 18, 2013, at 7 am, teams of cyclists and equestrians will begin separate relays from trailheads in New Boston and Farmersville. The meeting point will be Love Civic Center in Paris, (2025 S. Collegiate Dr.) Estimated time of arrival is 12 noon. Golden spikes will be driven into the ground at various points along the route which was originally a railroad corridor.
The NETT runs from Farmersville on the West to New Boston on the East covering 130 miles intersecting with 19 different towns. When completed the NETT will be the 5th longest in the United States.
Traveling West from New Boston, a team will ride through Malta, Dekalb, Avery, Annona, Clarksville, Bagwell, Detroit, Blossom, and Reno, spanning three counties across 68 miles to Paris.
Coming East from Farmersville, the route goes through Merit, Celeste, Wolfe City, Ladonia, Pecan Gap, Ben Franklin, and Roxton, touching 5 different counties for a total of 62 miles, to Paris.
We are inviting any and all cycling clubs and equestrian groups to join us for a “leg” of this relay. We believe this trail will be a huge asset to Northeast Texas and will provide significant economic stimulus to the towns along its corridor.
For more information, find us on Facebook @ NE Texas Trail (or call Bob Mudie, 903-883-0218, Jill Drake, 903-640-6300, or Becky Semple, 903-784-2501.)
SO COME RIDE THE TRAIL WITH US!

I've was looking at it on bikepacking.net. Last year. I also made a route down in the Davy crocket national forest that might be pretty cool for a weekend gig on cx bikes.

Wooderson sent me this link a few weeks ago. Good writeup.

As for our bikes, Steve rides an older 26-inch-wheeled Trek, while my steed is a Salsa El Mariachi with 29-inch wheels -- my new favorite bike. Both bikes have front suspension, which is helpful on much of the NETT. An extra accolade for my Viscacha seat pack, made by Revelate Designs. It held all the gear needed for three days, and because it attaches to the seat rails and seat post without the need for a rack, my bike was considerably lighter than Steve’s -- something we noticed while hoisting our bikes over numerous fences! I used WTB Nano tubeless tires, expertly installed by fellow NETT cyclist Kevin Campagna at BicyclesPlus, Dallas. Great tires and no flats! Steve had just one flat with his Slime-brand tubes (on the Roxton to Paris segment, of course).
