Trails always closed for a few days after rainfall to allow the surface to dry out. It gets like a sticky clay when wet.

Description

This out-and-back singletrack trail begins under Hwy 99 and continues west until the current end point at Alcorn Bayou. The most memorable and prominent feature of Da Bowl and Lung Buster is the way the trail continually winds up and down the natural ridge that borders the athletic fields and divides the area from the forest next to the Brazos River.

The first 1/3 of the trail is on fast and narrow singletrack. It continues towards "Da Bowl", a natural depression about 25 feet deep and 150 feet across. The bottom of Da Bowl can get wet so a wide (5ft.) section of wooden planking has been installed to keep bike tires off of a potentially muddy surface.

Da Bowl and Lung Buster makes for an out-and-back trail section, so you return to HWY 99 on the same trail. Call out your position before any blind turn or fast downhill to alert other trail users to your presence. Though the trail is built for and by mountain bikers, some dog walkers are known to occasionally visit the trail. Say hello, chat with them if you like, and let the locals know you are friendly!
