Review: You can only ride East Loop now, which is around 13 miles. Overall it's pretty twisty and tight, you can tell from the trail map. Segments such as Octopus, Munnerlyn bridge, Game Trail (2nd half) and Blair Witch Wood are fun to ride, with lots of up and downs, swichbacks and roots. Trails are very well maintained by BVMBA, signs are pretty clear and easy to follow (you are supposed to ride only one direction), and normally you will not encounter hikers. There are several bailout points take you to the levee although legitably the property owner requires no riding on the levees. Some spots are getting sandier and sandier over the years, but overall is a fun-to-ride trail system where you can work on your corner speed and flow

Review: Great trail, lots of up and down hill and lots of twists. Multiple puddles however because of the heavy rains that have hit recently, but not too much of an issue.

Review: Pretty good trail, but If you're making this a travel destination I would consider going to Rocky Hill Ranch instead. This trail has a little bit of everything, mostly technical, a couple of climbs up the levee, a few dips, a fast section, and lots of sand.

Review: I did the west side for the first time today. Lots of makers and flags and did get turned around.Yes, very slow going about 5-6 mile average. I did use a SS 29er and got dismounted once on a turn with hill. But all was good. See you on the trails. J.J.

Review: Best trail within 2 hours of houston.

Review: It's the west side that's easy, and the east side with more rocks, roots, drops, switch backs and climbs. As of 21 August 2010 BVMBA has trimmed the weeds, grass etc and the system is in primo shape. Lakeside Grill is open and serving up half-pound burgers and your favorite beverages. Highly recommended for a morning of Texas MTB fun.

Review: There are trails on both sides of the lake. Trails on the east side of the lake are more suitable for the beginner/intermediate, and trails on the west side of the lake are more for the intermediate/expert. Take a look at the trail map at the entrance to the levee to get an idea of where the trails run.

Review: Lake Bryan rocks! I've ridden it probably a half-dozen times, and even had my last wedding there. Skinny Dip Loop earned its name, for sure. Too bad they 'dozed the levees down...

Review: I live here at A&M and I've ridden Lake Bryan a few times. It's a good trail for people starting out. The beginning is a great fast trail with some logs to hop over and a few sandy turns...the first part you can just cruise on for the most part. Then in the middle at the the loop- this is a way technical loop, -I usually skip it to be honest- You can take the loop or take the levy to the next trailhead and go to the backside of the lake. The backside is fast and fun!
