Hunstville State Park

Average Rating:    (3.38 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 29

Trail runs on the very edge of the park which has hiking trails, a lake, and camping facilities. Trail starts out as fire road and changes to rooty single track. Quite scenic and secluded as you travel through a heavy pine forest. You can make a full day of it at the park or even makes a nice night ride to beat the Houston heat.

Summary:
Fast, fast, sandy, lots of roots, ...some long, steady climbs (not much elevation going on...) It's a nice trail, beautiful state park. Best suited for large wheels. 7-8 mile loop, a lake, showers.. in the pine trees

Summary:
long rooty climbs, good stretches of sand. You will definitely get a workout, especially when one of those patches occurs in a middle of a climb.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Cypress Creek, Cypresswood, Flintridge

Summary:
The trail is super sandy so you are washing out all the time. It is shared with hikers so it gets a lot of use. I don't consider this to be mountain biking.

Recommended Route:
Out of the park to another locale

Summary:
I love Huntsville. It is fairly far away from everything, and if I was making the drive from Houston, it might not be worth it, but it is pretty descent single track. It is full of roots and some sandy parts. There is not all that much climbing to be heard of. If you were in the area with some bikes I would definitely stop by. It is 5 bucks a person to get in though! Not per car. For the Houston area, these trails are great. The best part however is that lake! Jump in after your done with your ride and have a beer and watch the sunset.

Summary:
My wife and I rode Huntsville for the first time today and it was a lot of fun. We live in Baytown so there's not a whole lot close to us, and we feel the almost 2 hour trip was certainly worth it. We rode the Chinquapin trail and it was exactly like the other reviews stated; lots of roots and sand, and mostly either up or downhill runs. We came across only one other person - a trail runner. We're looking forward to going back and plan to make an overnight trip soon.

Recommended Route:
We rode Chinquapin trail, starting from the trailhead behind the Nature Center.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Double Lake, Lake Houston Park
