    This is the best trail you're going to find anywhere near Del Rio. The goal here is to reach the confluence of the Seminole Creek and the Rio Grande River. At the furthest point, you will be rewarded with a spectacular view of Panther Cave across the canyon. There are two trails leading there. I highly recommend the Rim Trail. It is longer than the direct route and it qualifies as a true single track. It is used by hikers as well, so watch for foot traffic. The trail is mostly rocky with plenty of ups and downs but it trends gradually down. The trail skirts uncomfortably close to the edge of the canyon in a couple spots but the drop isn't significant in these areas. It's only dangerous if you are cruising way too fast and out of control. Otherwise, there are breathtaking vistas from start to finish. The trail declines gradually toward the terminus, so you'll be climbing slightly on the return trip. From the end point, it's possible to return using the direct path which is much shorter with no ups or downs. However, this route offers no scenery to write home about and the trail is straight, flat and sandy in many spots. The weather is suffocating in the Summer months (April to September) so take plenty of water. The terrain is part of the Sonoran Desert and everything out here wants to harm you and/or your bike. Sturdy tires are essential as you will be facing off with the worst fauna mother nature has to offer such as Spanish dagger, cats-claw, prickly-pear cactus, mesquite, purple sage and many others. Anticipate having your extremities abused a bit by the time you're done. Luckily, the trail is trafficked enough to keep the fauna from encroaching too much on the trail.

    No where else can you get views of the Rio Grande like this. If you find yourself in this part of Texas and have the bike - stop and ride the trail - or even better stay the night. I would call it Beginner/Intermediate. It's a great scenic ride which will get the heart pumping with enough technical stuff to call it a solid mountain bike trail worth a visit. Gets a little bumpy in some parts and is good rock garden practice.
