Mountain Biking Monte Bella Bike Trails

****   Add a review
#114 of 280 mountain bike trails in Texas
#4,232 in the world

On the east side of parking area, there is a warm-up loop that goes around the big field. On the west side, the main trail goes back along a resaca (ditch) - follow this all the way until it ends and that's where the main trail starts. There is nothing very technical in Brownsville, but the trails offer a fairly high speed course. There are a lot of tight switchbacks that you have to hammer the brakes going in to, then put the power down coming out of. The trails run mostly in the Mesquite trees, and there is usually a gulf breeze that offers some relief from the south Texas heat. A fantastic well maintained city park with a load of wildlife - birds, lizards and rabbits scatter the trail in the summer. If you come to the area, be sure to bring your bike!
