    Corpus Christi is notorious for hit in runs when it comes to road cycling. The Oso Creek Park give you a chance to just ride. New work is being done weekly and there is a lot growing support.

    Many more areas added since last month. Muddy down on east side of bay but mostly rideable and tacky today

    Surprisingly dry today after the recent rains. Finally cooling off, only 87 when I finished at 10:30

    Pretty overgrown except for main trail. If you go over the big hill at one end, ride to cross the bridge to the other side of the creek. Go to the end, there are miles of double track and some more hills. Got in 10 mikes today doing this. Rode some double track I did not know was there.

    Three quarters of the trails are completely overgrown and unrecognizable, which is a shame considering some of the progress that had been made with the cutting of new trails just six months or so ago. Going to take quite some time and a whole lot of traffic to get everything back to where it was. Great potential for a quick local ride. BTW... VERY little (if any) of the time spent on the "work days" is dedicated to the upkeep of the trails themselves.....

    There is no way this is 7 miles. Maybe 3 miles of trails total? The double track was recently mown. Some of the single track is pretty good, some is seriously overgrown (i.e., can't see the ground through the long grasses).

    Trails not maintained, needs trail markers. I know they are looking for volunteers to help clear, perhaps next time it'll be a little more open. Ended up riding to several dead ends. Did see some flamingos and other birds.

    Fun easy trail with beautiful views of the creek. Be sure to ride when the trail is dry since the clay here makes cleaning later a bit difficult. We did see a bob cat, thankfully it didn't bother us seeing as it had food in its mouth. From what i read volunteers clean the trail every third Saturday of the month, so biking the week after is ideal. I really did enjoy this ride considering I'm a beginner. It has a few variations of paths and hills to practice with.

    Soggy condition & overgrown grass. This AM. Will revisit when conditions are such that I can explore more of the course.

    Easy trail with some new obstacles added. High grass makes parts of trail narrow and hides logs and other objects hidden if you get off the trail. Good hill to climb and descend at one end three elevated wood berms on trail are fun to pedal fast through. Bring extra tube or put flat seal in your tires due to mesquite thorns if you get off the trail.

    Great for beginners to get the feel for what off road biking is all about. It is also good to keep you on track when you can not travel to the hill country.
