You don't expect to find much purpose built mountain bike trail in east Texas but you'll be surprised at what you find in Lufkin. This trail is around 6 miles of rolling, twisty singletrack. With only 100 feet of elevation in the park, you'll soon notice that it seems like one direction on the loop is all up hill, while turning around makes it seem like all downhill. Suggestion: Ride the trail in a figure-eight, combining all the East-side of the creek, cross the 50' bridge & do the West-side loop. West side can exit to the park-entrance road, or return to the bridge. Do second-lap in reverse for diversity. You'll find very flowy, if sometimes rooty, trail that brings a smile to your face. All of the trail was professionally designed and the bulk of the construction done by S&S Trails. DET-TRAC and the Angelina Bike Club got the grant for the trail and provided countless hours of volunteer time to do finish work.
If you are traveling from a ways away like me (2 hours), don't bother. It's a nice little trail if you want to go for a walk and you maybe live there, but you are surrounded by interstate noise the entire time. Definitely not a trail to do if you are wanting to get away from it all.
Nice park! Nice hike. The trails are marked very well.
