Mountain Biking Mitchell Nature Trail Loop

****   Add a review
#72 of 277 mountain bike trails in Texas

This is the outer loop. The inner loop will be posted on a different post. It is significantly longer due to the type of trail it is, and should be planned for accordingly. The trail loop had some obstacles that required dismount a couple of times.

    Lots of spider webs. I had to stop so I could brush them off of my face. Lots of roots. Very narrow.

    Nice little getaway for biking. Trails are windy and lots of woods. Glad we found these trails, we'll be back for sure.

    Good trail for beginner to intermediate. Tight turns, some roots, mostly flat and very little sand. Limited parking.

    I rode the inner loop and would say it's pretty close to beginner. The main obstacles are tree roots and going off the trail, nothing that I had to dismount my bike for. There is sand in a few places, but a couple pedal revolutions and you are past it. Mostly it's just a twisty, turny trail but a fun ride.

    Great trail to take for a young rider. Took my Weblos II on the trail and he found it challenging but a lot of fun. He really started to charge at the end of the ride.

    8:00 AM / Temp 85 / First time on this trail. Had a couple of muddy spots but you can ride around them. Lots of shade, tight windy trails, good air circulation, couple of trees down and roots on the trail. I do like to ride early in the morning to miss the crowds. Good trails for beginners, plan to come back with friends and wife. See you on the trails J.J.

    They need to update the trail distance. There has been some new additions south of the outer loop and trails that head west of the lake. Raccoon trail is an out and back from the SW side of the lake. I usually get in 8 to 10 miles

    I live close to the trail. I usually ride it 3 times a week during lunch or while playing hooky from work. There are more trails south of the lake. From the parking area on Flintridge it about a 5 mile loop.

    I have ridden this trail several times when in Houston. It is usually pretty quiet, a few hikers and another biker once in a while. There is a lot of shade and the trail goes by a small lake (pond), great place to take a break and relax for a minute or two. It seems more trails have been created since the first time I was there, and maybe people are doing some improvement work.

    All singletrack. The Bike Trail is narrow with lots of roots. The South Loop is a
    little more tech. with 4 tech drops. Overall good trail with out the crowds

    I'm a fairly new rider and I found this trail very enjoyable. A few small logs to jump, very winding (I did hit a few small trees), relatively flat. Lots of shade. Definatly recommend!

    Not real technical at all. Inner loop is tight and twisty, outer loop is just a flat walking path.
