Need to Know

There are several places to park, but the best place is along the empty lots on Glenway. The street address is 10914 Glenway, 77070.

Note: there will soon be a designated parking lot near the 100-Acre Wood Preserve, updates to follow when that parking area is available.

Description

The folks who have designed, built and maintained this trail over the years have taken careful consideration to include as much fun technical and sustainable riding as possible, while also providing some fast, flowy tracks. You'll notice their unique signature in armoring hills with logs, pavers, boardwalks, and wooden drops.

Depending on where you start, and the order in which you ride the sections, you may have a different experience. This single fact contributes to the fun of this trail because it can feel like a different ride every time.

History & Background

Part of the trail is located on the 100-Acre Wood Preserve, located in northwest Harris County. The preserve contains several unique forest communities, including an upland forest with remnants of mature post oaks and a forested wetland with overcup oak.

Just rode last Thursday. Is this setup as a one way ride? Some portions I saw "Bikers turn around" other places I did not. First time riding was great. Technical turns and climbs. Will try to be out every Thursday around 5. Feb 29, 2016
Anyone know if these trails are flooded or not? Sep 2, 2017
Great trail, I would describe it as the best combination, so far, of technical - XC trail in Houston. Has some toys throughout the ride so you never get bored. It is kind of confusing though as there are no signs, lots of intersections and a handful of street crossings (above and below) that are not easy to follow. Sand spots are found everywhere after the Harvey storm but these are easy to clear. Oct 1, 2017
