Trail Description
About this trail
This is a great place to ride, good weather all year round, and nice river side scenery. These are mainly single track, but with many multipurpose connection trails. The trailmarkers are woodburned with names for the trails and difficulty levels there are some technical rides at Cameron. I have heard that it is the 5th best site in Texas to ride. All i know is that i enjoy it.

Review: This is a maze of trails crammed into a hilly patch of land along the Brazos River. There may be 20 miles in total but you'll rarely ride over a mile without hitting an intersection and taking out a map. Difficulty? I had no problem navigating the black labelled Highlander on a hard tail, but you'll need good fitness to clean it. The locals would have the advantage here by knowing what route to take for a long ride; for an out of towner, you're best bet is to park at Lover's Leap. Do a cc loop with Thor, MCC, Highlander, Hale Bopp, and Thor back to your car. Then go south on an outer loop starting with Baseball, Outback, Powder Monkey, etc.... On Powder Monkey there's a sign saying you're entering private property and you need a waiver deposited with them. You'll need a rear tire with good traction for climbing because grades on the black trails exceed 30% and other trails are on fall lines and eroded out.

Review: Trail map is horrible. Plan an extra hour for being lost. Trails are great.

Review: I lived in Waco for about 8 years, then I moved to CO. I came back for summers and breaks, and rode the Cameron Park trails here after CO and I had to search harder for better trails. Down at the bottom of the park there are lots of trails that are easy and uphill XC trails. These are good XC trails and are great climbs. Some of these trails are intense climbs, but none are very long. The longest climb is around a mile maximum. I love my technical downhill sections. These were the sections that I had to search the hardest to find. They are there, and they take the form of double blacks like Thor or Bat Cave. These are rocky and very steep. They are also very short. If you are looking to train your jumping ability, you are coming to either the wrong or right place. There is not much room to grow. The jumps are very small and not designed well. They will teach you how to jump 2 feet in the air and take a drop, they will not teach you how to jump. There are no tables, and certainly not large double gaps. That being said, there is a flow trail with berms at the very top of the park, in an area known as The Ranch at Cameron Park. This area requires a waiver to be signed, and this is where the jumps are (you can sneak in and no one will question you). Overall, Cameron Park has great moments, and a lot of short uphill and downhill. It can get very fast and dangerous. Beware as a hiker that if you are hiking on a biking trail, essentially anything that isn't the River Trail, you run the risk of coming across a biker moving quickly around a corner. Best mountain biking in Central Texas.

Review: Fun trail. There are some techy climbs worth sessioning. Just need to watch out hikers and riders that come from the other direction. I was almost hit by another rider when I was climbing while he was descending fast on the same single track oh man... so confused cuz it seems you can go both direction and too many intersections.. I still give four star cuz I like the trails themselves-compact soil with roots and rocks-fun stuff. I will definitely come back but I'll have to find a local to show me the way.

Review: Hard packed dirt, muddy patches at times. Rocky and rooty through a lot of it. Plenty of short climbs and descents.

Review: Great variety and completely free!

Review: We sought out the bigger descent and therefore climbs. I was surprised by the ammount of elevation change. Great terrain with plenty of rocks and roots if you seek out technical lines. Take a map. It is like a web of networked trails and you will miss out on a lot if you do not have one.

Review: This place had it all. Nice climbs, fast downhill, buffed single track and some good tech lines. If you have never been here before stop by the local bike shop. We went to Outdoor Waco for another reason and they pointed us in the right direction for the trail.
