BLORA has recently cleared the trails in the Mountain Bike Park. The trails are in pretty good shape now.
A few people are now talking about starting up the Ft Hood Trailblazer Club again. Check out the website: http://sites.google.com/site/fthoodtrailblazers

Recommended Route:
Follow the BLUE markers in alphabetical order and follow the "Blue" route. Stop by the office on the way back and leave a note for Art with your feedback or suggestions.

Summary:
I rode this trail around 2pm. What a smoker! Lots of rocks along with some steep climbs. Trail could use some better marking though. Some small muddy areas, but nothing you cant push through. I am an intermmediate rider and have ridden a few trails. I put this trail at the top for endurance and technical. My opinion. Carefull, a couple of sharp turns are cliff drop offs.

Recommended Route:
Go advanced trail if you have the stamina

Other recommended trails in the same area:
None, this really tops the ones for me.

Summary:
ATTENTION ALL! BLORA Park administrators are thinking about shutting this trail system down since it has not been maintained in a long while. The Trailblazer Club is no longer I'm afraid and the trails have suffered. I have started doing maintenance a little bit at a time and may have the whole loop done by the end of the year. I NEED HELP! I can only get out there a few hours a week (usually Saturday mornings 7-10am) and the going is pretty slow. I am concentrating on getting the babyheads off the trail as well as cutting the foliage back at the head and derailuer levels. I've worked it out with the management that I don't have to pay for parking and they've given me basically free reign of the course while I am maintaining it. I am sure they'll extend the same curtiousy for you as well. If you are interested in helping please drop me an email. Hell, I'll even take thanks and praise if you can't offer your time.

Recommended Route:
Stick with the clockwise route for safety, watch out for the occasional cow pattie and watch for cattle grazing at the entrance. Stay home if it is raining as they close the trail. Sections A-D are pretty clear as are some of the sections near the lake. All sections of the main trail are rideable if you have the legs and skills. Having a good shock up front will help you keep your dental work in some sections. Come ride this trail!

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Stillhouse Lake is an alright trail as long as it is dry. Watch for runners and horses!

Summary:
Wasn't sure what to expect from this trail. On a whim we drove up from College Station and met another rider from Austin. None of us had ridden it before. Besides a bit of mud during the first mile it was a wonderful trail. The advanced sections provide a lot of elevation changes with some pretty tough climbs, though nothing impossible. Lots of rocks, buried in the single track, loose on the climbs and downhills. Trail length was pretty good, though I think I'll ride two laps next time. Price is actually $3.00 per rider now.

Recommended Route:
follow the advanced (red arrows) trails

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Smithville, Cameron Park, Warda

Reviewed by: C. Stone , from Austin

Summary:
Best trails within a one hour drive from Austin (maybe a tie with Rocky Hill Ranch), remote feel on the trails, tough climbs, no crowds, occassional sounds of artillery fire rumble in the distance. Trails are mostly rocky, with a good mix of tight/twisty and fast sections. If you are a beginner avoid the advanced trails as there are some moderately technical sections on both the climbs and descents. Trails are well marked and maintained. As you enter BLORA continue past the trail head and pay the entrance fee at the main gate to the park. Trail maps are usually available at the park office.

Recommended Route:
Advanced trails are great if you are a skilled rider. Advanced riders on the back side climb Gappers Gulch, turn right as you come down and stay on Sparta Ridge trail. This turn is sometimes overgrown and easy to miss, very fun ups and downs.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Rocky Hill, Walnut Creek, Muleshoe, further south Kelly Creek Ranch is worth the drive.
