“A nice ride among the trees bordering Huntsville State Park, but in the Sam Houston National Forest.”
— Skipper Tanglewood
This ride passes near the hiking only Lone Star Trail, which incurs a $400 fine if you bring a bike on it. Make sure to stay on track.
A fun, new trail just outside of the Huntsville State Park. A short, but fun singletrack ride that includes lots of dips and turns through the natural terrain. This trail can be accessed by the CCC Trail
that circles the Huntsville State Park, or via the feeder road along I-45 where hikers would enter the Lone Star Trail.
To pick up the trail, ride to it using the CCC Trail
near the Huntsville State Park Nature Center in a clockwise manner to the South Loop
Trail at mile 0.75. You can also park outside the Huntsville State Park on the I-45 Feeder road if you don't want to pay the $5/person fee to hit it from the park side. This trail is a good addition to the Chinquapin Trail
nearby and well worth the $5 for parking and the added mileage! The trail is pleasant, easy riding through the trees. It has a few dips through small creeks that are dry in the summer.
