San Gabriel Park west of IH35

Average Rating:    (3 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 9

Nice curvy single track OK for beginers all the way to the golf course. The best part is getting off the main track and going up and down the ridge. Bet there's some stuff you cann't make up and down. This trail is a work in progress and it's getting better all the time. We've got some Emma Long, Forest Ridge possibilities here.

Summary:
I know some were dismayed at the trail being destroyed by the Rivery Trail and more shopping centers, but there's great riding nearby. Take the Rivery Trail from San Gabriel Park all the way to Overlook Park, where you can ride mostly singletrack trail all the way to Tejas Camp on the west side of the lake. Watch for a steep climb to gain elevation from below the dam to almost dam level. Between I-35 and the dam requires a short jaunt through a neoghborhood on the street, but it's a small price to pay for having so much trail in the area. BTW, it's 5.6 miles from San Gabe Park to the dam and almost a 40-mile round trip from Duke's BBQ on I-35 to Tejas Camp and back.

Summary:
As of now there are 2 parts to the trail, the beginning park closest to the park is short and through the frisbee golf area. There is construction going on so you have to go through or around it to get to the best parts of the trail. If you can get to the second major trail up the river, it is very nice with loose rocky downs, and twisty logged turns. It looks rarely ridden. I usually get about 6 or so miles in from the park and back.

Recommended Route:
I usually park at San Gabriel Park, and then make my way to the trails. On the paved sidewalk to the trail head.

Summary:
Hey I still found my way back there. Just go down by the river and around the fence. This trail has faced some chalenges... hard to find... storms knocking down trees... Super WalMart... but I'll keep going when ever I get a chance... with some work this could be a five wheel trail.

Recommended Route:
Thru the frisbee golf course... thru the ropes course... hang a right and go around the fence... the trail is still there.

Summary:
We all knew it was going to happen. The construction of the Rivery Project has blasted the trail and surrounding areas. The only portion that is left is the first half-mile, not worth your time. Goodbye to a fun, close trail. Hello Super Wal-Mart.

Recommended Route:
Used to be a fun trail, but now it's wiped.

BLORA!!!

Summary:
Well, I tried out this trail last weekend, and its defintely a beginners trail, no fun at all. It looks like some kind of construction is taken place on one end of the trail. I think I stick with Walnut Creek, Greeen Belt, and Emma Long.
