An awesome rocky, flowy taste of hill country trails.

I hope you like rocks because the Madrone Trail is full of them! The entire route is littered with small to large rocks and will require a good eye for finding the lines and navigating over and around the rocky terrain.


Fortunately this route is pretty easy to follow. The trail is well marked and generally flows in one direction. For this reason it is not hard to ride the trail without a guide but bringing someone who knows the trail can allow you to ride and be warned of upcoming rock gardens or step ups.

This should be renamed the Trail of the Forgotten Tables. It winds around the park wrapping around former concrete picnic tables.

Like a non-stop rock garden with some step ups, plenty of drops. Fun trail - great to work on bike handling. Feb 22, 2017
This was pretty technical, but flowed nicely up and around the hills. It'd be nice if the guard at the gate to the park knew mountain biking was allowed. He was trying to deter us, "we don't have people come here to ride the trails...".. we ended up renting a camping space (cheap, $12 for two of us) to ride for the day. We enjoyed it nonetheless.

fairly new to riding but really enjoyed the trail, not technical by any means and mostly flowing single track with some rock gardens, some short climbs and small drops. fun ride and a good way to spend an hour or two but it can get hot so bring water, nice views with few other people out here. The only thing to watch for in my opinion is loose rock on the switchbacks and corners, can make a for a few moments. Apr 11, 2018
