“A combination of the trails in Memorial Park, excluding "Call Out."”— Chris Beveridge
Electric Mountain Bikes Unknown
Family Friendly The Purple Trail is very good for novice riders with the Red and Yellow Trail being good for beginner riders.
Need to Know
These trails are two-way so caution should always be used and proper trail manners and calling out "rider" at blind intersections and turns.
This will loop around and feed back into the Blue Trail. Once back on the Blue Trail, you can take a left when you get to the "T" intersection to return to the Red Trail taking it to the right, this time all the way to Purple Trail. Exiting onto the Purple Trail, you'll go left with a quick second left to enter the Yellow Trail.
The Yellow Trail is the fastest and most flowing part of this trail system. Enjoy but watch your speeds on some turns as there are still plenty of small stumps and roots to trip you up. Once exiting the Yellow Trail back on to the Purple Trail, you'll take a left until you see posts marking the Orange Trail.
The Orange Trail is a tight, technical trail with good root sections and flow. At the end of the Orange Trail is "Call Out," a steep gully descent that carries you across Buffalo Bayou with a good steep climb at the end. On the day this route was ridden, the Call Out was under water and not passable.
In cases like this, backtrack and re-ride the Orange Trail and Yellow Trail. Take the Red Trail back to the Blue Trail, which will lead you back to the original starting point on the Purple Trail. To complete this area, take a right on the Purple Trail then a left when you see the posts marking for the Blue Trail.
Following this section of the Blue Trail will lead you to the opposite side of Call Out where you turned around last time. Completing this covers all the trails in this group.
Exit this area back to the baseball fields and follow the roads and paved paths to either The Triangle or the Green Ridge Trail.
