Its a fun singletrack with lots of switch-backs and contours. Its a beginner trail and in the woods, so there's plenty of shade. Water fountains and restrooms on location

from Houston, take 45 north, exit 84B Loop 336, turn right (east) on Loop 336, then follow for 2.7 miles and its on the right. Park at the fields or around the lake, then enjoy the ride.
The trails aren't labeled well but still a fun ride. We went after a bad rain the day before muddy and wet still a blast. My 6 and 8 year old boys loved it.Thank |
Drove out to Carl Barton yesterday, won't do it again. It's basically a narrow path thru the trees, not much else. Very boring and not sure how some sites show it as a beginner to intermediate trail. In my opinion it's not much more than an overgrown path thru some narrow trees. Still searching for a cool trail in the Houston area.Thank |
I can't find the trailhead anywhere. I looked and looked no luck.. horrible directions or it's all overgrown and goneThank |
Trail needs major work. Most of the trail is currently overgrown and covered in leafs. There are also several single tracks that have no rhyme or reason and ruin the flow. This trail could be very nice with some work.Thank |
Trail was good today. Single track is tight. The back "part" is pretty over grown. Still a nice place for a quick afternoon ride.Thank |
First time I tried this trail since its about a 7 minute drive from my house I thought I would give it a try. Very windy and overgrown in several parts of the trail. The south end was somewhat decent but the north end is very over grown and completely impassable in many areas.Thank |
Not well maintained at all with some big ass holes everywhereThank |
This trail is by my house so I ride from home to get saddle time. I haven't ridden it since late summer, but it was nice to ride today with winter coming on and the leaves all on the ground. Usually it's pretty overgrown so this helped open it up a bit. There are several trees down across the trail and at least two learners. The trail was wet from recent rains but it was rideable. I walked around deeper mud to not create ruts.
As others have said, this is adjoining a park so there are fountains and bathroom facilities. Not a make or break for me, but for a beginner or significant other, it could be an ok break-in ride with the amenities.
I ride it because it's near my house. If you drive over about 10 miles to come here you may be disappointed, but if you live close by it's a decent place to get some seat time.Thank |
Road here for the first time today. Was a bit overgrown so lots of limbs and vines make the trail pretty narrow in places. Also, there are several intersections with different trails so it's easy to get a bit turned around and unsure where you are exactly. The good news is that most trails eventually lead you to an entrance/exit, even if it isn't the one you came in on.
I rated it intermediate, but would be an easier trail if it was cleaned up a bit.Thank |
Very overgrown and plenty of spiderwebs across the trail. If you don't mind having poison ivy then you'll enjoy the shade the trail offers. There is some potential here. At least there are clean restrooms. A better trail would be George Mitchell in the Woodlands.Thank |
This cloverleaf trail can be ridden multiple times changing order of loops and directions to get a nice ride.Thank |
