Mountain Biking Hunt Trail #5

**   Add a review
#227 of 277 mountain bike trails in Texas
#17,619 in the world

One of five designated bow-hunting areas on Amistad National Recreation Area. The trail is accessible year-round, but bikers may encounter bow-hunters during the Fall. Trail is about 1.5 miles to the terminus. Mostly rocky with small ups and downs. The trail is thick with desert flora, i.e. prickly pear, spanish dagger, cats-claw, purple sage, etc. Sturdy tires are a MUST. Beware, everything out here wants to harm you or your bike.

    This is not a trail for the casual rider. It is an out-and-back of approximately 1.5 miles. The trail is very rocky, narrow and difficult to follow in many spots. There is thick brush encroaching along most of the trail. Unfortunately, it's not the friendly kind. There is thick sage and frequent thorns and cat's claw. You will get scratched. The thick brush prevents you from going too fast or keeping a steady pace. I rated the difficulty higher than the actual trail warrants due to the aggressive brush.

    The area is part of the Amistad National Recreation Area and there is plenty of room to expand this trail. With proper maintenance, it could potentially be a challenging 4-6 mile loop with spectacular views of Lake Amistad.
