Trail Description
About this trail
This trail is a mix of part singletrack, part doubletrack and part rock path, but if you love your bike, this is not the place to ride - especially Loop 3. The rocks here are vicious. I know that this is Hill Country real estate, but these rocks are large and want nothing less than to see you tossed to the ground by their evil numbers. For those that do manage to stay on two wheels, rest assured that any part of your bike's anatomy that is within a foot and a half of terra firma is guaranteed to show the marks of your success. This is NOT a trail for beginners!

Review: I believe many of the previous reviews are unfairly harsh. There are sections of trail that have a lot of rocks but most are set, not loose, and don't require too much skill to navigate. The trail is fairly level so doesn't have any of the fast, fun downhills that are my favorite but this park offers nice trail riding not too far from home.

Review: First of all, I would like to say thanks to Texas parks and wildlife and Texas state parks for allowing bicycles on these trail systems. Second, besides from being a well rounded park with different venues, the trails are very maintained and are fun to ride. There were a few areas were I lost track but quickly found my way. Overall, great experience and the Guadalupe river is just down below for some fishing or kayaking and maybe a little swim.

Review: Please take the other reviews with a grain of salt. I don't know what experience levels of the other riders are or if the trail has been improved, but I had a great ride today! There were a few areas of rocks but they were not that bad. The areas that were bad were enjoyable because you can work on your technical skills. As soon as you enter the park go to the trailhead to the right. You start with almost a mile of slight downhill and you can really open it up. I stayed right at every turn and then took the trail to the river near campsites 1-6. It was awesome! There was a nice downhill section with several rock jumps on the way. I rode along the river and then took the path along the top of the cliff that overlooked the river and the valley. I stayed away from this trail for about a year because of the other reviews. I am sad I did, I definitely ride hear again!

Review: Very disappointing. $6 dollars to get in per person and the trail is extremely rocky. Very few hills, just tons of rocks that make it difficult to enjoy. My friend broke his gear and chain on a rock during our second time around the trail (only really about 5 miles of trails here according to the map, so we went around twice) and we had to walk 2 miles back after we got to a paved road. I felt ripped off.
