Lift bike over gate and follow the fire-road WSW. Watch for single-track on the right approximately 150 yards from the cattle gaurd. This will come out on the fire road after about 1 1/2 miles. Near the west boundary fence, the fire-road turns north, then east and turns back into singletrack. The singletrack trail runs just below the rim of the canyon with a spectacular view of the lake. It has several climbs and descents through feeder gullies. A little rocky and loose in a few sections but overall a great course.

Approximately 5 miles east of Lubbock. From east Loop 289 take 50th street (FM835) east to a 4-way stop. Turn right (south)approx. 1 mile to lake entrance. Follow main lake road down into canyon. Go past the marina and main loading ramp, where you come to a Y in the road. Go right over a bridge to another Y. Take the left, where you'll see restrooms on the left with parking, some shade and picnic tables. This overlooks the east swimming beach, a good place to cool off after a ride. From there, continue east on the main lake road to the top of the canyon. A challenging paved climb by bike for a good warm-up (also part of the race loop in 2000) At the top, look for a cattle-guard/gate on the right. The gate will remain locked to prevent unauthorized motor vehichles from entering. Bikes can easily be lifted over gate.
Lake entrance fee: $2.00 adults. $1.00 kids.
