Kerrville State Park (A.K.A. Schreiner State Park)

Average Rating:    (4 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 8

There's a little for everyone, except perhaps the superman downhillers. There are nice rocky sections, fast hardpacked single track, winding narrow woodsy trails (full of cedars--avoid during cedar season if you're prone to cedar fever, or be sure to med beforehand!). There are even a few places where you can catch some air. This is a good place to go just for fun if you're in the area visiting. I'd recommend going to Bandera or Kelly Creek if you're going to make a long trip, but this park is fun if you happen to be in the area and you have your ride. Watch for hikers...there aren't too many but there are some.

Trail Directions
from I-10 West out of San Antonio--take the first Kerrville exit; that is Hwy 16. Take a left off the access road, go under the I-10 bridge. Go to the first light, take a left onto Loop 534. Go to the end of Loop 534; you will come to another light--go through it (you'll go over Hwy 27). Drive straight, over the bridge, until you come to yet another light. Turn left at that light. This is Hwy 173 (to Bandera). Almost immediately you take a right into the park. Most of the time you don't have to pay but if you do, the ranger station is almost across the street on the left. It's 3 bucks and they give you the combination to the gate.The best trails you'll find if you go left after you enter the park, than take another left until you get to the trailhead. There are several trail heads in the park and you can park at any of them.

Summary:
nice intermediate trail with occasional advanced drop or climb. rocky but no loose rocks. no baby heads to speak of. +/- 6 mi. of trails.

all trails interconnect so you can do as many different sectionS as many times as you like.

excellent map and water in park. trailheads and crossings easily marked.

if you take the red section in counter clockwise direction you will climb about 330' up to water tower. this is a tuff , intense and advanced aeorbic climb. in shape riders will want to do it a couple or more times.

nice little trial..oppty for a good workout.

Recommended Route:
counter clockwise on red trail

Summary:
This trail was not that bad. I live in houston so anything with a climb is fun for me. I went in late July so I rode early in the morning around 7 till 11. Then I went to the river with some beer. This trail made me invest in a soft tail. I did not touch the hill. Anybody that has been here knows what Im talking about.

Recommended Route:
park and ride.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
hill country state natural area (if hell is your thing)

Summary:
Kerrville is a nice place and the trails aren't bad either. If you show up late to the park, a nice fellow named BoJack will make sure you are taken care of. The trails are in pretty good shape although the map isn't the most helpful. There is one large climb with nice downhill on the backside. Watch for hikers as there are many. This place is beautiful and peaceful. If you need a place to eat head to Big Earls, good barbeque, just don't expect a smile from the kid working the day shift on Thursday. GOOD FOOD THOUGH!!!! I recommend the trip to Kerrville. Have fun!

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Bandera, Kelly Creek, McCallister, Flat Rock

Summary:
I offer this review in two parts -- my personal experience and detailed park information. PERSONAL EXPEREINCE: This state park offers a great training area for beginner mountain bikers (like myself) but equally fun for more experienced riders. I recently bought a Trek 4100 and have been riding on these trails 2-3 times per week for over a month and have never grown tired of them. To my surprise, I discovered that even a 38-year-old could rock-hop without too much fatigue and impact on the body. This park has helped me fall in love with the sport of mountain bike riding. Even though the park is small, the trails are well networked and include several switchbacks so repeating your favorite trails is fairly easy (reminds me of a ski slope). As mentioned by other reviewers, the park offers great scenic views (certain areas beg you to stop and soak in the beauty of God's creation). There are many fast-paced trails and a couple challenging hills to practice your climbs and descents. Also, there are lots of rock-hopping terrain, washed-out trail grooves, and a few places to catch a little air-time. Overall, this park is a great place to sharpen your technical skills, gain some confidence, and get a decent workout. DETAILED PARK INFO: The 517 acre park includes 7.7 miles of hiking trails with more than half of it suitable for biking. Unlike other parks in the area that closes during the hunting season, you can ride these trails seven days a week, all year long.

Recommended Route:
The city of Kerrville is off of I-10, an hour north of San Antonio. This park is located 3 miles southwest of Kerrville on both sides of Hwy 173. One side offers the river and the other side has most of your hiking and biking trails. Both sides offer bathrooms, hookups, camping sites, and shelters. The official address is 2385 Bandera Hwy. (173 south), Kerrville TX (in case you want to MapBlast it on the net). For more info, call 830-257-5392.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
I have heard a lot about Kelly Creek, Flat Rock, K-Pub, and Hill Country State Natural Area (Bandera). However, I haven't personally ridden a bike in these areas yet. The hill country is a great place for mountain bike riding!

Summary:
These trails are great for a beginner mountain biker like myself. I ride here about 2-3 times a week. The best thing about this spot is the natural beauty, and numerous deer. There are several remarkable scenic views. These trails provide the beginner/mid-range biker a variety of great oppotunities. The trails are fast, with some challenges mixed in all along the way (jumps, rugged terrain, steep uphills, etc..) The park is also just a jewel--great place to get away for the weekend! I highly reccomend!

Recommended Route:
Others have already given great directions--or simply call the State Park.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Kelly Creek, Flat Rock Creek.
