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

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.

Fell towards beginning. Used both front and rear brakes instead of just rear. Felt too nervous to try certain steep downhills. Overall 6/10 — 1h 04m
