Trail Description
About this trail
West track is open prairie with lots of cardio from the ups and downs. Be careful on the turns as Lubbock has lots of sand. It is not every day you get to chase prairie dogs off of the trail. Nice and scenic. The East track is a decent singletrack. The trail markings are good. The downhills are tough as there is plenty of loose rock.

Review: Nice trails, accessible to pavement is easy, easy parking. Dry, some rocky climbs, multiple exits to pavement.

Review: This can be a great trail, but you have to pick your line... lots of little cut offs that wind around and back. I suggest following someone the first time. It's pretty dry so lots of areas to spin out or get bogged down. Loose rocks are everywhere and dodging prairie dogs will happen.

Review: I was disappointed with this trail. There was so much broken glass I had to stop. Yes the prairie dogs are cute, but not worth the potential flats.

Review: I was looking forward to riding this trail more but 10 minutes in both tires went flat from all the broken glass on the west trail. It isn't rocky enough to suspect a pinch flat, much less 2 flats, so that was the only thing I could say caused it....it wasn't just a small section, but a significant portion of the trail had broken glass, so kinda disappointed in that. I had 2 extra tubes but didn't have a patch kit and didn't want to risk getting more flats on the east trail, so I had to cut the ride short. I can't honestly say what the east side looks like, perhaps I'll bring 4 or 5 extra tubes the next time I'm in town and check it out.

Review: Really fun single track with enough diversity to keep it entertaining. Quite a lot of large debris on trail (7/15/2016) after windstorm last night. A lot of stops to clear trail. Overall great trail and easy to get a couple big loops in an hour.

Review: Place needs help. Overgrown. Too bad the city doesn't keep this part of the park up. Would not ride there again.

Review: An impressive use of space. This trail has so many tight flowing twists and turns that it is amazing it doesn't run upside down. You won't find big ups, or long downs, but you will find solid, fast, challenging hammer-down good times.

Nothing super technical except for a few punchy climbs, and some tight turns in a sea o' cactus, but all around fun - fun - fun.

All this in Lubbock? Hey, hey -- Who woulda thunk it?

Review: Mae Simmons has good MTB trails for beginner, intermediate, and some advanced biking. I have spent the last week biking this park and the trials are pretty fun. To start off the trials are divided in three parts, West , middle, and East side. The West side offers wide open single track up’s and down’s with lots of semi fast biking on hard ground with light rock. The middle side offers technical tight up’s and down’s but with more tree’s “hack-berry tree's”, rocks, and sand. The East side AKA “Devil's Thorn” is more for your advanced mountain bikers. This trail has very tight turn all while being completely surrounded by CACTI. One false move and you will become friends with thousands of cactus needles. There’s also two large downhill slopes called Big Devil and Little Devil that is pretty fun, very fast. All in all I had fun on these trails. No they are not the most fun I’ve had biking BUT not bad for Lubbock at all. Defiantly worth checking out in you’re in the area The trails are located on Canyon Lake rd, east of Martin Luther King blvd. Once on Canyon Lake rd drive east and follow the river till you get to the dam. that's were youl park and the trial head starts. There is also a mid port parking half way down canyon lake rd, BUT I recommend going all the way down and working your way back
