Lake Bryan Park Trail

Average Rating:    (4.29 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 28

You would think that this trail would wind up being a fairly flat trail with little climbing, given the surrounding terrain. Wrong! The trail runs up and down the levee, so there are several hundred feet of climbs. A service road is located on top of the levee. About 10% of the trail utilizes the service road, the remainder of trail is single track crossing creeks and winding through the woods, with a small section of trail utilizing an abandoned gravel service road to an oil pad. The trail system is split in half by the lake, leaving an east and west loop.

Summary:
Rode Lake Bryan the first time this morning and had an absolute blast. I rode the east trail loop for most of the morning and there was a surprising amount of downhill action where you could get some speed and take some banked turns. Good mix of drops, bridges, climbs, switchbacks, etc. I'll definitely be back.

Recommended Route:
I haven't ridden enough of the trails to know which is best. I tackled the closest trails on the East Loop for the most part and only two trails on the West Loop. West Loop was a little more wide open as far as I could tell.

Summary:
This past weekend was my first time to ride here in over three years. The trail is in good shape except for several places where the grass needs to be mowed. It is also hard to follow the trail because of the grass and some missing signs. There is plenty to keep you busy on the trails though it is not very technical. Also I enjoyed the addition of a see-saw and a rock garden to fuel my interest to come back. Overall Lake Bryan is one my favorite places to ride to the east of the hill country.

Recommended Route:
I like the east route because it is more developed but the west is good to put in extra miles.

Summary:
Things have changed alot since the last review in 2003. I rode the East and West trails with a group of locals and found both loops to be fun and in excellent shape. Since the most recent Norba event, the trails are now being ridden in the opposite direction. Since this was my first ride, I could not tell much difference. The ride was balanced with twisty single track with some technical creek crossing sections that could be hit with good speed and momentum. Everything is one way so I found it comfortable to ride jamming with my IPOD. Total distance for both loops was 19.1 miles, so you can get a good workout. I give the trial a 4 for Aerobic if you do both loops at a fast pace.

I found the system to be kinda similar to Warda, but longer. The ride is good enough for me to drive out from Houston and I will add it to my once a month out of town ride schedule. The local club rides on Sunday at 2:30 - 3:00 PM and everyone is hospitable. Good group of folks to ride with. I would also recommend waiting a few days after rain since this trail is at a lake.

Recommended Route:
Ride both the East and West loops. The person commecting the money at the entrance will give you a map.

Summary:
The east trail is a decent trail considering it is in a pretty flat part of Texas. Its fast, well marked, with a few technical sections. The west trail is overgrown with chest high weeds, not maintained, and imposible to follow in many places. Ride the 9 mile east trail and skip the west. The East Trail has a few technical sections with some very small drops (1-2 feet)and a few log crossings. Other than that, its pretty much twisty single tract.

Recommended Route:
East Trail
