Mountain Biking Waterloo Lake Loop

****   Add a review
#149 of 277 mountain bike trails in Texas
#5,884 in the world

The main trail circles the lake, is about 5 miles long and consists of the Waterloo Lake Loop and Woodland Loop. Mostly singletrack with lots of dips, tons of bridges, and a surprising amount of climbing (especially up and over the dam twice). The last two miles are mostly pavement through a park to the dam, and then a grass ride along the top of the dam. Stop for to obligatory pic of your bike in front of the cave.

    Soo good for the area!!! Lots of quick descents and punchy climbs. There are also a few good climbs with multiple switchbacks. There are some more difficult sections, but they all have easy routes going around them.
