Trail Description
About this trail
Small texas hill country mesas, viewed through a network of double track gravel road and single track. The Yogi Bear cabins are a fun place to stay if you are doing a several day trip as they are right on the water. Not too much shade on the trails and it gets hott in the summer so come prepared.

Review: Old converted ranchlands and primitive hill country geography make this a ride characteristic of TX. There are multiple trails to choose from and its easy (and fun) to get lost for a while. A lot more climbing than we find in San Antonio, and the trails are more rough and rocky--not as sterilized as many other trails in the area. The area is mainly utilized as an equestrian camp, but we encountered very few horses on the trail while exploring in late-January. Not the best ride in Texas, but definitely not the worst either. Best thing about it were the sweeping hill country views.

Review: Very disappointed. If you like getting into a rhythm on a flowing single track with well thought out climbs and downhills this is not the place you want to ride. This is a multi use trail where horses and hikers take priority. Trails are 1/2 jeep trails 1/2 horse trail that are hard to follow (poor markings as to where the trail his heading). We found the park map hard to follow. There are sections that are challenging but you get tired of riding straight up a jeep road to get to 5 minutes of challenging fun trail.

Review: Get your pass and map at the HQs and park at the Trailhead Equestrian Camp Area. From there even beginners won't have much problem on Wilderness Trail (1), but as you get closer to Ice Cream Hill leave it to those with more experience as the terrain gets a bit more rocky and loose. Many spots on Spring Branch & Spring Run (6 & 6a) will require you to carry your bike, but that's part of MTBin'. The multiple low water crossings are fun and the trails over-all are a nice challenge for all levels. note: full suspension is a definite benefit here note: Actual name is Hill Country State Natural Area (SNA)

Review: You must share the trail with horses, although the day I went I was the only one there. Not a lot of shade cover. If there is a saving grace it would be the fun creek crossing. There is a hose for washing off your horse. I used it on my bike and myself

Review: Although it was fun to ride, it was a bit rocky for my taste.
