“Good for exercise outdoors”

Erwin Park Hike & Bike Trail
Reviewed 23 August 2016

This is a fairly large area that encompasses a variety of terrains. We like to hike the trails and observe the details we'd miss if biking - even tho it is a great bike experience too.

What a pretty place to hike and enjoy spring! Lovely flowers everywhere! Bathrooms were horrible dirty!

This park is located in the northwest quadrant of McKinney. It has a rural setting and is surrounded by farmland and wooded areas. It is very scenic and has a lot of open space with great views. It is a great place to spend a few hours or to stay overnight. There is free admission to the park, but camping spaces and pavilions must be reserved with the City of McKinney.

Not exceptionally challenging, but ample set of trails through the rolling terrain of Collin County. It's a popular spot on weekends.

This park is west of McKinney and easy access. But the amenities are slim. There are 3 Pavillions, the Pecan Grove, the Hill top and the Out Back. The first two have toilet facilities nearby. The two stall toilets do not have doors, so that may be not as good as a port a potty because at least a portapotty has a door. At Pecan Grove there are several picnic tables and fire ring. The other campsites each have one picnic table and a fire ring. There is no running water, except in the sinks in the toilet facilities. So you cannot fill large water containers. There are no electrical hookups. There is a small pond but not too far from Pecan Grove area but looks too small for fishing. There are some decent riding trails but probably not as good as Bonham State Park and definitely easier than Tyler State Park. But for flat easy riding, Oak Trail is great. Erwin has the location to be a good park but lacks decent amenities for camping. The bathrooms are not good and today smelled and looked disgusting. Camping and Pavillions must be paid for in advance and camp sights other than pavilion ones, are first come first pick.
