Need to Know

After the first creek crossing, the turn-off for the optional loop back to Coyote Run Trail is to the left beside an old fence and posts. This will meet back up with the beginning of the trail at the Manchaca Road bridge. Coyote Run Trail is to the right under the bridge from there.

Use extreme caution at the end of the trail where it meets Slaughter Creek Drive as drivers are oblivious to riders exiting the trees so abruptly.

Description

A flowing connecting trail with a fair amount of technical sections thrown in that runs from underneath the Manchaca Road bridge at the end of Coyote Run Trail to the neighborhood roads leading into Mary Moore Searight Metropolitan Park, plus an optional easy loop back to Coyote Run Trail.

The trail starts underneath the bridge at Manchaca Road where Coyote Run Trail ends. The trail has a few technical sections at the beginning then flows nicely until it hits a fork where it continues to the left. A four-way intersection is soon after, where going straight or to the right will each lead to a couple of creek crossings.

After the first crossing, there is an optional loop through an old gate to the left back to the beginning of the trail. After the second creek crossing, the trail climbs briefly then drops into the creek again underneath a train bridge with lots of art everywhere. Follow the trail around the bridge then cross the creek and continue north going parallel with the train tracks.

There is a small technical rock feature then a long but gradual climb beside the train tracks until the trail eventually descends into a creek bed to the right with a few technical features where the trail continues. It then quickly ends at Slaughter Creek Drive. Use extreme caution here as there is no shoulder on the road and cars will be oblivious to any rider exiting the trail.

The trail does continue across the road and leads to neighborhood roads that have access to Mary Moore Searight park.
