Summary:
Nice tight-curved singletrack. No climbing to speak of... Great place to hone your handling skills. Has a couple of sandy corners, lots of offshoot trails that can be strung together for up to a 9 mile loop. BEWARE: 2-way traffic and blind corners if you're hauling butt it can be dangerous! Call it out or ring a bell... DON'T WEAR HEADPHONES!! you become a zombie and are dangerous to other riders giving warning on the blind corners... Its fun for Houston.

I'd put this trail up against anything else in the Houston Area. Just wish the DCR riders would pick up after themselves....

Summary:
I'm just moving the Houston area and wanted to try to keep riding my mountain bike. This trail isn't too bad to at least keep the crank turning. The trails are tight and windy with the occasional rolling drop. Overall, not a very technical trail although there are a few fun surprises once you get past TC Jester towards the BMX jumps.

DO NOT PARK WHERE THE DIRECTIONS SAY TO.

Instead, Park in Cypresswood Park or Meyer park and follow the trails east along the stream until you reach the group of four baseball fields. Take a right there and drop into the woods. The singletrack zigs across a wider double track and around a dry reservoir until you have to cross a bridge.

Summary:
It's in GREAT shape, you should head out when you get the chance! The future is not looking good, there's a LOT of clearing going on in that chunk of private land between the two public parts. The public stuff is still nice though.

I did Timberlane Trails yesterday and (as a novice) was blown away!
