Was a great trail just a lot of random concrete that seriously hurt some of my group and me.

Well kept and maintained, the only gripe is the natural erosion on several of the technical trails. It makes it a lot more difficult to get pass without worrying about falling off your bike. The south trails are better off for the beginners, enjoyable for people who wanna ride with the creek along side them, and the north is for the more experienced who want more elevation and more rocky terrain.

It’s muddy in that one spot on the North trail today. I didn’t know it rained recently...

Good Trail for some shade during the hot Texas weather. Has Crazy narrow bike trail as if you feel like he or she can fall in the the dam. Deep dips and etc... Ugly views of the dam, lots of clothes and beer and junk down certain areas of the trails. However the trees and wilderness is cool I guess.

Good trail for biking. Not so great for walking trailing. Be sure to go the opposite direction if you are walking because lots of bikers go here.

Part of the trail is closed off right now, so you can’t go the whole thing, but parts of it were so darn fun I nearly went swimming 3 times!

Great biking trail! Lots of up and downs. It’s a little dirty in the runoff areas, but the shade provides a great escape from the Texas heat. I don’t have a great mountain bike, but I was able to navigate in and out of all the technical spots on the route.

Great ride - saw multiple other people there on the trail which was different that the south side trails. Great mix of down hills and up hills, roots, platforms,etc. - mainly for intermediate riding, but don’t be afraid to take the trail and turn around if not safe for your level. Saw people walking their bikes over spots that were tougher and that is awesome because the only way you get better is by trying it out! Get out there and ride!

Nice hike! A little challenging to tell the difference between the hiking and biking trails, but nice and shady along the creek.

Loved this! Lots of shade, which was nice in the heat. There’s a lot of different ways you can go, so it’s hard to follow the trail exactly but also made for an interesting walk. Bring bug spray.

Really gorgeous dirt trail. Very thin. Lots of cyclists. I was hiking, so I had to be hyper-aware to stay out of their way. Will definitely come back here.

I love this trail. Does anyone know if there is any access besides the parking area off of Centerville?
