Summary:
This trail is one of the better trails in the Houston area. It is just as challenging as Memorial or Meyer Park. I have ridden this trail several times and it has many different options. My GPS tracked 9+ miles of riding the other day and there are still areas that I haven't explored.

It has everything that you could want. One day my friend took a pretty bad spill on the off road track and potato chipped his from tire. I took the family out there the next day and towed the baby on the paved track for a work out.

Recommended Route:
All routes depending on what you're looking for that day.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Meyer Park, Memorial, Huntsville State

Summary:
this is a great trail for beginners and advanced riders. there is one entrance that leads to some fun ups and downs, called the pump house run. once you're at the parking lot, head east over the bridge until you see this little utility house on the left. go behind it and to the right (into the grass) and enter the trails immediately to the left and enjoy. there is also an entrance to the left of the trail behind the house, more for beginners.

Summary:
Like others said, trail is not the most technical but has alot to choose from. Ups and downs, long stretches and sandy spots. Lots of foliage growing into trail makes for some interesting rides. Make sure to wear long sleeves as the thorn branches can scratch you up pretty good. Needs to be maintained or ridden more often so it doesn't look too deserted. Abandend buildings gave me a "Texas Chainsaw massacre" feeling. Overall a good ride. Logged 9 miles starting from beyond the soccer fields at the Cypress Creek YMCA.

Recommended Route:
Take your pick, many routes to explore. I got lost and don't remember how i ended up back at my car.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Anthills at Terry Hershy Park. Hwy 6 to Wilcrest on south side of Buffalo Bayou.

Summary:
These trails are only 6 miles from my house so travel time is short to get riding.I have ridden these trails at least a dozen times.You can certainly get a mix of singletrack,short climbs and some straightaway for a good cardio workout.I rarely see anyone else on the trails.They are not the most difficult or technical trails but there is alot of interlinking of trails on the east side of Cypresswood and plenty of sandy areas to burn those legs.The trail is very clean and close to major roads so it deserves a looking into.

Recommended Route:
No recomended route as everyone likes to explore the trail in their own
way.I drop in off of Cypresswood and go South to one of the trailheads but there are many dropins along the creek area.

Summary:
I was looking for somewhere to ride close to home and found this little gem. The map is wrong on this site so follow the written directions they will put you right on it. This is a well put together trail with challenges for most riders. There is also the opportunity to extend your ride with connecting trails.

Recommended Route:
It's all good. We rode for about 2.5 hrs down multiple trails. But you can do laps around this trail if you choose.
