Cypress Creek - Trail, Cy-Fair, Texas

Cypress Creek - Trail, Cy-Fair, Texas

DESCRIPTION

Like many trails in the Houston area, this trail has quite a bit of potential. There are several trails, the most technical of which is right on the creek's edge, on both banks. Heading west along the creek and and under Telge road will take you to a large artificial reservoir that is dry 95% of the time. Good for practicing sprints and short climbs. With a little work, these trails could be quite fun.

Not maintained in a long time, looks like it could have been fun years ago. Currently about 1.5 miles if you bob and weave and backtrack to cover as much ground as possible. Mosquitoes are completely insane and there are large piles of debris and trees down over what would seem to be the best part of the trail.

Parts were great although trail would end suddenly. My buddy got a leg full of thorns. Lots of sand when following stream bed. We had a good time but couldn't find a consistent trail.

Customer Service

Any route that goes for more than a 1/2 mile.

Tried this trail out today based on the reviews. As of 2/2010 the trails are not maintained but like the others said it makes for a good ride. Lots of potential. Some of the trails along the banks have eroded away. Use caution and look ahead before taking the dips.

Customer Service

Follow the designated nature trail for a fun run.

I was searching for something close to the house and saw this trail. This is really for beginner riders. I rode both sides of the creek and didn't find a whole lot of options. At the time (4/12/08), it was not maintained once you past the designated "Nature Trail" that is connected to the park. Logged about 4 miles trying every possible combination.

Customer Service

Ride across the wooden bridge and keep with the designated Nature Trail signs for a beginner ride. There is a trail on the west side of the bridge that goes into a private backyard after about one mile.

I checked this place out today. It is not bad. There are alot of ATV tracks in the area. Needs some work. A little wet in places. I had a couple hours of fun.

These trails could rock if someone would get out there and work on 'em. The ground is nice and the creek is right along the edge. There are few technical portions, but overall its just a fun ride. If you cross to the other bank over the street bridge you'll find some more trails that are flat and fast. The water smells bad, tho.
Someone has cut down a bunch of small trees and laid them in the trails, but it wouldn't take much to move them. Lots of short, steep ant hills and on-the-edge riding; danger of falling in the creek is imminent. The reservoir across the street is good for BMX or mtb.

These trails have always been good for riding fast. I have ridden from Grant on the North side of the creek to Jones and from Jones on the South side to 249. They were king of tame and limited. But, recently (within the last month), the Corps of Engineers or some other entity has come and cleared about 30' on each side of the creek - trees and all! This can be good news because it has uncovered many ups and downs that were previously too heavily camouflaged by underbrush. I have seen, by car, what looks like some really cool areas just West of N. Eldridge. Cypress Creek can rival the Ant Hills if more prople would show up and help wear in the trails. Because of its potential and proximity to my house, I will give it 4 tires - maybe 5 one day.

Ride close to the creek to get the hills. No matter where you're at, you're surrounded by roads and shops so thats good to know if you eat $hit and have already treked a good way. I grew up in this area so I'm probably partial to it, but the scenery is very good and because of the stables nearby there are trails that are well placed from the horses. At times it can be sandy.

Who should ride: anyone

Customer Service

Start at the Jarvis dead-end (within the Ravensway subdivision) and go to where Big and Little Cypress Creek merge to the left. Cross the low level creek and on the other side begins a series of trails that can take you as far as you'd like to go up the creek towards N. Eldridge and Louetta. Circular trails exist just within the forest if you dare to venture out....

I live pretty much right where the two creeks come together, and i ride thes trails nearly everyday. They are fun, but i personally find them a little easy. I don't think they compare with cypresswood or anything like that in difficulty, and the grounds goes from hard pack to extremeley sandy. Another problem is that sometimes the creek is too high to cross. The trails are great, if you want to get in shape, and they are fun because there are no long uphills or anything really technicle, and you can go pretty fast. I ussually follow the creek and then loop around through the woods. If you feel like riding them and would like someone to show you the way, email me at homerp04@yahoo.com anyone could ride it.

Customer Service

I don't know how to describe the spot, but on North Eldrige, there is a bridge that will connect to the trails. The other way was mentioned by one of the Brians, go Jarvis ect

This trail is actually very good for those of you who aren't afraid of a little AC riding. There is a jump section created by BMXr's that rocks. This trail is not for sissified, boohoo to many roots riders. Grow some nuggets and take the 12 foot drop!!

Customer Service

Most of the trail is good
