Nice tight-curved singletrack. No climbing to speak of... Great place to hone your handling skills. Has a couple of sandy corners, lots of offshoot trails that can be strung together for up to a 9 mile loop. BEWARE: 2-way traffic and blind corners if you're hauling butt it can be dangerous! Call it out or ring a bell... DON'T WEAR HEADPHONES!! you become a zombie and are dangerous to other riders giving warning on the blind corners... Its fun for Houston.

I'd put this trail up against anything else in the Houston Area. Just wish the DCR riders would pick up after themselves....

I'm just moving the Houston area and wanted to try to keep riding my mountain bike. This trail isn't too bad to at least keep the crank turning. The trails are tight and windy with the occasional rolling drop. Overall, not a very technical trail although there are a few fun surprises once you get past TC Jester towards the BMX jumps.

DO NOT PARK WHERE THE DIRECTIONS SAY TO.

Instead, Park in Cypresswood Park or Meyer park and follow the trails east along the stream until you reach the group of four baseball fields. Take a right there and drop into the woods. The singletrack zigs across a wider double track and around a dry reservoir until you have to cross a bridge.

If you haven't riden here in awhile you need to come back. The locals have banded together, added miles to the trails and made them some of the best trails around. The old technical sections are still there and more have been added. A very active group keeps these trails in good shape. There is now over 8.5 miles of singletrack you can ride. Big dropoffs, twisty flat sections, log ramps, bridges and wildlife.

Park at Collins Park, (Cypresswood Park on the map), make your way to the creek behind the ballfields and look for the entrance to the trails. You will follow the creek and come out on Spring Gully, cross the road bridge and look to yor right where you will see a couple of arrows leading into the woods. From there you will go back toward the creek and go east across T.C. Jester and continue until you reach the bowl area and circle back. Look for loops and other trails off the main one. Most of the other trails are around the retention pond west of the construction at T.C. Jester and Spring Gully.

It's in GREAT shape, you should head out when you get the chance! The future is not looking good, there's a LOT of clearing going on in that chunk of private land between the two public parts. The public stuff is still nice though.

I used to ride this trail a lot a few years ago, and figured it had been butchered after seeing all of the construction going on, but it isnt! I rode it for the first time in years, and have to say, i actually like it better now. Was a little hard to figure out where to start, but i made do. The routes are also not marked to well, so i made a few loops twice, and got turned around when it was time to leave. I did see a couple of plywood arrows, but i think there needs to be some more of them, and they should be painted orange or something. All in all though, it was a very nice ride, especially since it is so close to me.

Customer Service

I parked at the park behind the retirement home. i parked in the lot to the left of the skate park area, because i saw a small cut through into the trees. I then just followed the trail along the bayou, and went behind the baseball fields, where the trail headed back into the trees. from there, i just rode along the trail, somewhat remembering my way around.

The Cypresswood trail system is open and is a nice ride. you can make about a 7 1/2 mile loop by starting at Collins Park. The west end of the trails has a figure 8 trail the east end is still good with the bowl section. If you haven'e been here lately come back and try it out.

The last review stated that the center section was destroyed and he was correct. With alot of help and work the trails are now in good shape with many new trails opened. Some work is still going on with some water mains being routed through, small detour, and T.C.Jester will be cut through this fall.

Customer Service

Start at the back of the baseball fields at Collins park behind the library on Cypresswood. Ride to the bridge at spring gully and cypresswood and go down the other side. Turn in at the power lines and start the rest of the trails all the way to the old bowl section and return. Nice 7 mile, or so, ride.

Bad News !! As of June 31, 2006 the private owner of the center portion of this trail system has began harvesting the trees and the trails in this area have been destroyed by bulldozers. No trespassing signs have been posted. Bummer ! There is still some rideable trails to the East and West side of the original system, but in my opinion the best part of the system is now gone. The landowner has stated that security will now be on-site to protect the harvesting equipment and that trespassers will be prosecuted.

Go somewhere else, Anthills, Jack Brooks or Memorial Park
