Start and finish just beyond the gate at the parking area. The entire trail is single track.. Mostly hard packed earth, but there are many sections with rocks to work through. Many small climbs and descents, some areas are totally flat. They have built several small bridges and obstacles to enhance your ride. The trail is marked well with directional arrows and you may use provided by-passes to change up your route. Like most West Texas trails watch out for cactus and mesquite thorns off the path. No water available at trail.

Review: Trail is great. I only got to ride one of the shorter trails because it was late but they all looked well kept. The guys I talked to out there where really nice and told me to come back next time I was in town.

Review: A great trail. I had the pleasure of riding this one while working out in West Texas. Access to the trail requires a membership that is purchased at one of the local bike shops (Don't remember which one), but it's not that expensive. Bring extra tubes and watch out for rattlesnakes!

Review: This is a members only trail, and has a lock on the gate. We went to a local shop, bike town, and they were nice enough to let us ride! These trails are total fun. A couple of really excellent gully drops and rocky tech sections but all levels of riders will love this place and even an advanced rider can ride hard and love it . They do have a great beginners loop too. This club has built a really great singletrack trail and though its short its worth every effort to stop and ride.

Review: This trail has something for everyone. The trail flows very well. There are many technical features to keep the more advanced rider engaged. There is also a 1 1/2 mile beginners loop. It is well maintained, and now consists of about 13 miles of single track.

Similar Trail: San Angelo State Park trail system is about 2 hours south of Abilene and contains about 30 miles of single track. It is not as well maintained as Buck Creek and is not as technical, but with the number of miles there, it sort has an epic feel to it.

Review: Really great trail! Has great technical areas and places you can bring your kids to ride too. If you are in the area or just passing through it is worth checking out. Lots of features packed into this trail, lots of man made bridges and obstacles and some gut wrenching clembs! To get details on how to get there go to Bike Town on S. 1st street.... They will set you up with directions and maps.

Similar Trail: Its similar to San Angelo.. San Angelo is a Multi-Use trail...ie Horses, so it is not as well maintained as Buck Creek

Review: Buck creek is a well maintained trail that has a little bit of something for everyone. There are rocky technical areas, downhill loops with banked curves, some killer ascents that will leave your legs in a state of shock, and some nice drops and jumps to test your hucking skills. This trail is dynamic, the members of Abilene Bike Club strive to collectivley make this an awsome trail to ride. There are several man made obsticles and bridges and more in the works. During the summer there is some nice and shady spots and of course plenty non shaded, typical West Texas areas too. Members of the club take an active role in the preservation of the trail and in trail enhancement and maintenence. The Hub of Abilene Bike Club is at Bike Town at 1433 S. 1st Steet in Abilene TX and can be reached at 325-677-2453. The guys at Bike Town will give you the run down of the trail, and directions on how to get there. Membership in the club can be obtained at Bike Town and is 20.00 per year. Trail maps are available for free there also. Get out there and ride it! There is plenty in Abilene for the whole family to do, a zoo for the kids, plenty of shopping, and lost of great places to eat. See you there!

Similar Trail: Similar to state park in San Angelo......but way better

Review: I am a fairly new rider just having started in June of 2009 but I absolutely love the sport. I really enjoy Buck Creek and feel like it has something for everyone. Its a great place to get in some good exercise and get your adrenalin up. Overall I really enjoy riding there.

Review: Very nice 12 miles of single track. Has some technical sections that keep things interesting for the more advanced rider but also bypasses of those features for the less experienced rider. Stop by or call Biketown on S. 1st for information on access (Abilene Bike Club membership generally required).

Similar Trail: San Angelo State Park, which is about 1 1/2 hr south of Abilene, contains about 30 miles of singletrack. Nothing especially technical, but makes for a nice long ride.

Review: Over the last 2 years this trail has become ever increasingly the ultimate in Texas trail riding. It has everything from hair pin turns to some pretty good climbing sections (5 hills in 2 miles that will make your legs burn or drop to a granny gear). It has new rock sections and some fast and flowy downhill. There is even a pump track right off of the parking lot!
