A very diverse, technical trail considering the Greater Houston area's terrain.

The trail is closed during wet or muddy conditions. Up to the minute trail conditions and group rides can be found on the Facebook group here:

Please refrain from wearing headphones to prevent collisions - not all of the trails are one way, signs and markings are coming soon.

Use caution on technical features.
A ride with as much fun, technical riding as possible, while also providing some fast flowy tracks.
Family Friendly: There are several parks, walking paths, and beginner trails for everyone in the family to enjoy.
Dogs: Leashed

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.


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.

Getting forecast...

Is it legal to ride there at night? Oct 5, 2015

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
