Lick Creek

Average Rating:    (3.14 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 7

Great Texas A&M secret. I am blabbing only cause I am moving away soon. Mostly single track. Several trails to follow. Total of maybe 5 to 8 miles of trail. Please don't ride it when it's wet and ruin it. Be carefull in the spring, the limbs will make your arms look like they were attacked by a wild cat. Watch for hikers, dogs, joggers, horses, and rattlesnakes. If you can find the pond, you will find the best riding. I will let you find your own way.

Summary:
Who ever posted that this is an intermediate singletrack has never been on one. This is an equestrian park with no difficulty. The trail is not 5-8 miles long on it's best day. If you did all the trails it would equal about 3.5 miles. Check out the web brochure, it has a guy in an electric wheelchair braving the wild intermediate singletrack.

Recommended Route:
This trail is ok if you are bored and want to get out of the house. Don't come thinking that you'll be challenged.

Summary:
I went to Lick Creek after all the rain we got a couple of weeks ago, and I must say this place is really fun! There are some really technical section of the trails. Some are even more technical than Lake Bryan. Like some of the drops down through the creek beds, they are full rocks and roots and makes it very difficult to ride down. Also watch out for sandtraps. The sandtraps are pretty dangerous, the only places that I've srashed in Lick Creek are cuased by these sandtraps, they're hard to see and sometimes you be crusing along at a fairly high speed and then you hit one of the sandpits, and they may cuase you to wipe out. My favevorite trail is the Copperhead Cut loop, it's about 1/4 of a mile in lenght and takes you through some cool drops through creek beds. It's really fun! Another plus is that its never crowded, I've only seen one other person while I have been there. This is a hidden gem in the B/CS area.

Recommended Route:
The loop that takes you by the hidden pond, and the Copperhead Cut loop.

Lake Bryan.

Summary:
This is the hidden gem of Aggie land. There is any kind of trail you could think of, from easy going trails the hardcore stuf around the pond.

Recommended Route:
Trail around the pond, if you know how to find it, if you find the golf course you are close. There is a back way to it, if you go into the Gate before the main entry.

Summary:
Most of the trails here are fairly flat and easy to navagate, but there are a few trails require a little more skill to ride. You'll find a few drops and ditches to ride through and a few of those have medium sized rocks you have to avoid on the way down. Also be on the look out for falling trees and logs. As my brother found out a while back while riding down a ditch, he hit the log and flew off. If you're into more tame trails, you'll find plenty here, I'll guess that around 70 percent of the trails are ridable by novice bikers. Another plus of the park is the wildlife, you'll see and hear lots of birds and you'll see the occational snake. The ones to watch out for are the Cottonmouths, Copperheads, and the Rattlesnakes. Overall this a nice free place to ride in B/CS.

Recommended Route:
There are tons of trails throughout the park, but the best trails are the ones that loop around and near the pond.

Summary:
I like Lick Creek because I am close to it, I ride there from my house in 20 minutes. It is a good place to practice and see nature, just watch out for snakes. I have not seen a rattlesnake like the guy above, but see Cottonmouths all the time. Not as good as Lake Bryon and not very rough but a good trail riding place.

Recommended Route:
Around the pond, it is close to the golf course so if you see some golfers you are close. Most of the trails are easy riding but close to the pond it gets rough.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Lake Bryon
