Mountain Biking Windmill Hill Preserve

*****   Add a review
#139 of 275 mountain bike trails in Texas
#5,034 in the world

Gently rolling, 75 acre preserve. This wooded preserve is the home of the Stevie Ray Vaughn Memorial Bridge at Stewart Branch of Ten Mile Creek; corner of Wintergreen and Main. Some very steep hills both up and down, not always giving a lot of traction. A real challenge at times. Not very long, but an interesting little trail. The trails were originally cut as a time trial loop. Very pretty wooded areas that give you some shade from the sun. There is no marked route, but from the parking lot head south and make a counter-clockwise loop of the park to take in the best trails. There are granite trail markers and kiosks at the trailhead, with maps. It's not a bad idea to ride this with someone who knows the trails first, although being a small park, you won't get lost, it just helps to have some local knowledge first time out there.

    Fun for me (a beginner) had to stop and check some obstacles out before doing. Trails are not marked but easy to get out. Steep up and down at places...a bunny hop or two is needed but way fun!!
