This location has different trails that will have something for everyone. Huntsville has the most elevation in the region (read that as they have hills). It is also one of 2 trails, regionally, that are good to ride (usually) the day after it rains. The trails are more sand based, rather than silt based, which is the reason for the fast drying after rain. This can also cause the trail to be "sandy" after a prolonged dry spell. Huntsville is the home of a fall TMBRA race. There are four main trails inside the State Park itself and there is an additional trail attached to, and accessed from, the State Park that is located in the neighboring Sam Houston National Forrest. The four to five main trails inside Huntsville State Park are the Dogwood, Coloneh, Chinquapin, the CCC and the CCC Cutoff. The Dogwood, CCC Cutoff and Coloneh trails are more connector trails. The Coloneh is more beginner friendly. The CCC Cutoff connects the CCC and Chinquapin trails with a FAST, fun decent from the CCC to the Chinquapin, or a long grinding climb from the Chinquapin to the CCC. The Dogwood has some fun drops and climbs. The CCC was built by the CCC in the '30's and is largely jeep trails. The CCC has some long steep climbs, though, and can give a real work out. The steep climbs do translate to fast, steep descents. This is not the trail for a new rider. Experienced riders will enjoy Hamburger Hill on the west side of the park. Hamburger Hill can be reached using the CCC cutoff. This trail has sections that are gravel based. The Chinquapin is the trail most used and is the most all around user friendly. It can be ridden clockwise, or counter clockwise. Clockwise, tends to be long climbs with steeper descents, while counter clockwise has has steep climbs with long descents. There are roots on this trail. The National Forrest addition is referred to as the NWCC trail. The NWCC is fast and flowy. It is a low grade climb going in, so it's a low grade decent coming back. Huntsville State Park has restrooms, showers, camping and a store on property. Swimming is allowed during warmer months.
