Trail Description
About this trail
A good single track trail which contains a bowl area and some technical atributes. Majority of the trail is moderate and is the best trail around. Only one route really besides a flat walking path of which the trail crosses many times. If you come to a creek, just follow the path to Cypresswood, cross the bridge, and follow the path on either side south leading you to more trail. If you come to a bridge(T.C. Jester) crossing a creek where the trail seems to end, follow the tire marks under the bridge for the trail continues on along the creek. This is known to be the best trail by many experienced riders all over the area.

Trail Q&A
Rider Questions


Q: Would this be a good place to start for a beginner or is there a better recommended trail? -Trevion Paul

A: Yes, this trail is beginner friendly. There is a ride-around for any of the semi-technical features. Just make sure to call out 'RIDER' when approaching blind turns as most the trail is 2-way.

Review: The trails are in good shape, even after Harvey. Nice riding surface with the exception of a few sandy sections, but all trails seem well maintained. The most notable thing about Cypresswood is that the trails on the west side of the park (which is where you park and start) are all two way, and that section is filled with blind corners. On a busy day, this will definitely force riders to slow down a bit for the blind corners. If you're interested in really hauling, continue east past the greenbelt and hit the one-way trails section. Overall this is a great place to ride, and I would recommend it for any skill level. Excellent trail system!

Review: Trails were in good shape today. More beginner than intermediate in my opinion. Will definitely go back.

Review: Great trails & fun to ride...the absence of defibrillators at the rest areas was reassuring. Thanx to all the volunteers who keep these trails in great shape & always adding new to the mix. :-)

Review: Good beginner trail. Little bit of everything but hard to keep a consistent pace because the trails don't have much rhythm. Lots of super soft loamy sand which also affects your pace. The trail is mostly trimmed of branches and debris and seems well maintained.

Review: It's a great place to go ride and take inexperienced people. There's really nothing too technical on the trail, and most things that may seem challenging to the new rider have a bypass.

It's a popular spot in a heavily populated place. Traffic is high and the trails converge on each other a number of times, but easy to find your way around.

Review: Fun trail, a few technical spots but nothing to tough. It's closer to 6 miles than 4 and you can add another mile if you start at Meyer park and go down along the creek

Review: Rode Cypresswood today and it was it great shape give that we've had rain earlier in the week. Obviously there were still a few wet spots but none avoidable. A lot of the usually sandy areas are still holding enough moisture to be packed. Trail should be excellent tomorrow.

Review: This trail is always enjoyable, and is my go to trail in the area. There can be a lot of sand in some places, but overall, it is a fast moving trail. The trail is always well maintained, and there are markers for most of the trails with names.

Review: Pretty fun trail with some flow considering there is no elevation change. Couple of little tech spots. Could have been marked better. There were some markers but they weren't consistent and I ended up re-riding some of the sections. Going to try to ride again tomorrow and hopefully get a better feel for it and report back.
