Review: Tyler State Park is a great family place. There are MTB trails for most level of riders. Small lake for fishing and canoeing (there are rentals). Of course, there is camping. and hiking. There are a couple of hiking only trails, so respect that! This trail is another great example of the Texas State Park systems support of mountain biking. It is a multi-use trail for hikers and bikers. The park's recommended direction of travel is hikers go counterclockwise, bikers go clockwise. People don't necessarily follow that suggestion, so watch out for head on run-ins. For biking, the climbs and drops make more sense going counterclockwise. You'll wind up climbing up steep techy stuff and coming down less steep switchbacks if you go the wrong way. That's not to say you won't have your share of techy climbing going the right way! :) The few berms that exist will also be backwards if you go the wrong direction. This is a stacked loop trail (EZ, A, B, C, and D). The EZ loop (.75 mile) is just that, short and easy by mountain bike standards. Occasional small rocks, small roots, loose stuff, some sand, mild climbs and mild descents. This is a beginner MTB loop. Loop A (2.5 miles) steps it up a bit, with longer and more technical climbs with a few switch backs, and some nice sweeping decedents with a couple of berms and some small root drops. This is a intermediate MTB loop. Loop B (3.1 miles) is similar to A, just not as tight. Some climbs are longer, but not as steep, and subsequently, so are the descents. Loop B is at the parks lower elevations. This is a intermediate MTB loop. Loops C and D (1.5 and 2.2 miles), take another step up. Break out the trail bike and lower gears on C and D. Ups and downs are stepper and more techy. Roots and rocks are taller. Switchbacks are tighter. Longer down hill runs are faster and can be loose and rough. Be ready for a couple of grinding climbs as C and D traverse the parks lowest and highest elevation more than a couple of times.

Review: Had an opportunity to ride in the month of November. Nice autumn colors. Has a few switchback sections with elevation changes and was well groomed. Not to many technical sections to speak of. A beautiful and well marked 9 mile ride.

Review: Trail is okay ... Nothing to write home about. Top of the trail tends to be sandy, and the rest has several roots.

Review: Rode the EZ loop & A loop and they were awesome. The park is beautiful, restrooms are clean and there's plenty of shade. These two loops consist of lots of surface and elevation changes but nothing too difficult. The trails are well maintained and I can't wait to come back. Well worth the drive!

Review: I'm an advanced rider with a Frankenbike I built myself- a 29er hardtail 1x9 with a rigid fork, made for technical riding. Here's what you need to know:

-entry is $5.

-Most of this trail isn't suitable for beginners;

-Leave gears 5-27 at home, you won't need them.

-Bring your knobby tires, the substrate is very loose.

-It's not hilly, but is chock full of steep ascents and drops.

-Near the middle of Loop D there is a huge down-and-up; at the top is a trail that takes you to a campground where you can fill up your bottle or camelback.

-If your a technical rider like me, you will be challenged constantly; if you're a downhill flyer, be careful.

That's it- have fun!

Review: To the young man that paid for me and my son to get in, that $10 is one of the nicest things anyone has done for me in a real long time. Thank you and God bless you. As for the trail, Awesome! Solid intermediate trails, bring your lungs and legs for the climbs and a full suspension for all the roots and rocks if you're getting old like me. Some of the switchbacks and fast rough downhill sections might push a true intermediate riders skills but who rides to be bored. Great trails, I'll be back for sure.

Review: This was a fun and well marked trails system. They even had maps at the main trail head. If you can't tell by now, I travel and ride a lot of different trails. I detest poorly marked trails. Anyway, these were not overly technical, but drainage has created some challenging little sections, with lots of tree roots. There is a $5.00 fee for the state park, but well worth the money.

Review: Overall great trail with lots of diversity. Raced here and had a great time on this trail. Lots of short punchy climbs and some good switchbacks. If your in the area or passing thru its worth checking out. Nice little lake nearby to get in a quick dip.
