Summary:
There is no time to over think your next moves on these trails. I ride them 3-4 Times a week and find them to be very challenging. Lots of twits, turns, climbs and downhill with plenty of stumps, roots, rocks and hills to negotiate constantly not to mention the forked trees and cactus to ride through. The park has expanded the number and difficulty of the trails to approx 13 miles that I know of and have ridden. For the area they are excellent and a paved portion for those rainy days. No excuse not to ride at the Mission Hike and Bike Trails. Great place for cycle completions as well.

Recommended Route:

Summary:
Just as Harold says, its a great place to bike in the valley. Can't go too fast due to all the technical sections linked together, but it's fun trying! Crazy drops(widow maker, bike breaker) Fun drops(back drop, up and down, top of rattlesnake) Very Dangerous singletrack everywhere...LONG SLEEVES and protection and tools/spares REQUIRED.

Summary:
Today was my first time trying the trail and it was way better than I expected from the RGV. There are some really impressive downhills, jumps, turns, the whole works.

My only complaint were some parts were really scary in terms of at any second you could slam into a massive amount of cactus LOL. SLIME the tires is a MUST as you could literally go through 3 tubes easily in a day.

Summary:
Make sure you have printed a map from the club site photo Gallery in order to take advantage of everything there. [(username: guestbike. password: guestbike)this will put into the club site. goto photo gallery].
Excellent training ground for newbies along with some pretty serious downs for thrill seekers. The trail as of this date is 6.8 miles yet when linked to the Bentson ride (email me for directions) its a 16-20 mile ride. Fast trails and great for night rides. Please make sure the gate is closed behind you in the evenings (after dark) when you leave.
The time trial section is short but requires a lot of technical ability at faster speeds. Exposed roots, low limbs, rugged terrain, are all part of this section. The wet back loop is very fast and includes lots of minor twists and turns without causing a reduction in speed. Watchout out for the cactus! Bring tweezers, slime your tires and enjoy!

Recommended Route:
Exit South on conway in Mission from expressway 83.
Travel approx 3/10 mile; Mission Nature Trails will be to your right. Look for the green sign

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Flat Rock. Go there. Do It. Love it. Tell your friends!
