Mountain Biking Government Canyon

****   Add a review
#44 of 281 mountain bike trails in Texas
#1,680 in the world

This park has a network of trails ranging from 3-5 miles per trail. Every trail head has a large topo map charting every trail in the park. Some of the trails are for hikers only and is clearly marked on the maps. The trails are well marked and each marker has mileage listed so if you don't have a bike computer, it is not important. There is also running water at Parking Lot D. The terrain varies from canopy-covered rolling trails to pretty tough climbs. The decents are (or will be) legendary! If you come out towards the "Alamo City" give Government Canyon a try.

Getting there
If you live in San Antonio, TX or are familiar with the area take Hi-Way 1604 to Culebra and take a left (going under 1604). Stay on Culebra until you come to Golm Road and take a right. The trail entrance is on the left hand side of the road about 2 miles from Culebra. This is a State Park so they do charge $6.00 per person but it is worth every dime you spend. The park just opened this month.
