“Cullinan Westside features fast flowing doubletrack and singletrack trails through the forest next to the bayous.
— Chris Conley
This ride is nearby to populated areas but is surprisingly quiet and peaceful. The trails are not technically challenging - an excellent way to let families enjoy nature together.
Trails at Cullinan are always closed after a rain until the trail surface can dry out.
This out-and-back loop accesses the majority of the Westside trails that are currently completed and ready to ride at Cullinan Park.
Need to Know
Creek crossing at the 1.36-mile mark.
The ride begins near the bridge on Old Richmond Road - there is a small gravel parking lot there to access both the Northside and Westside trails at Cullinan Park.
Cross over the bridge on Richmond Rd, then enter the trail right next to the road as it turns left into the forest and that's where you'll be on the high-speed The Finger
. At the end of The Finger
, make a hard right-hand turn and stay on the doubletrack trail called Giggity Goo
. There is a creek crossing that you have to pass through to make it to the Pumpkin Loop
Soon, you'll make the sharp right-hand turn onto Pumpkin Loop
- it's a long singletrack loop trail that undulates up and down, heading through the trees and with some dips thrown in. It brings you all the way back to the Giggity Goo
doubletrack, at the intersection where the creek crossing is.
Now you're back at the creek crossing. You can retrace your steps by turning left (crossing through the creek) and head back to The Finger
to come return to the bridge on Old Richmond Road.
