If you live in The Woodlands this is it. The inner trail system is tree lined rooty single track . The outer system, double wide flat & easy with many sandy runs. Due to previous rains the parallel river trail is hurting. This happens to be the fastest most technical area.
there are many trails to explore. Right now its a pretty boring ride. But hey its better nothing.

Since this trail is fairly close to the house I loaded up the bike and headed over. The trail is extremely wooded and even though there was a decent breeze this morning, there was no breeze moving through the woods. I was quite surprised how tight the trail was, brush and small limbs constantly rubbing on your arms and legs. I didnt have any scraps or scratches so no big deal just was not expecting this. Maybe since I have been out of riding a while this is the norm.

The inner trails are tight and fun and cross over the outer trail several times. Pretty easy to get turned around but just hit the outer trail and eventually you will find the exit. I enjoyed the inner trails with lots of turns and lots and lots of trees. There is a trail down by the creek that is a lot of fun. One trail is a dead end near someone's house...not sure if the trail is being worked or if it was blocked in the past few storms. There a lots of roots and quite a few trees to jump or crawl over.

I HIGHLY recommend a helmet! There are several low hanging trees that you can hit if you are not paying attention.

This is a very nice and easy going mtb track right next to the Woodlands area at Spring Creek, Spring TX. See my video of the track here on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BgdhsRzESvI

This trail system has evolved nicely over the last few years. In addition to the inner bike trail mentioned in the other reviews, there is an added south loop which has some fun gullies with steep entrances and exits. Not a hard trail system to ride, but if you are in the woodlands it is a fun ride.

Not worth the trip out there. If you absoutley had nothing else to ride and live close enough to ride there, then it might be ok.

Do not make the trip out there the only thing you want to do is try a new trail.

Jack Brooks down south. Worth the trip. Memorial Park is good, but not as good as Jack Brooks. Cypresswood is fun.

It's great to have a trail to ride in The Woodlands. I like being able to get to the trail in 15 minutes. The designers squeezed a lot of trail into a small space - 3.5 miles. I think the trail would have been better at maybe 2.5 miles and be less twisty. For you single speed riders, this is the perfect course. You'll never change gears on this course. There are no hills and no straight-aways. You're always in the process of making a turn. If you zone out you're in the bush as the trail is very tight. There will never be a mass start race on this trail. There are probably only two places to pass on the whole trail. You also wouldn't want to go after a heavy rain as this trail will be very muddy, which also makes it a mosquito haven. Bring Deet! If you are the first one on the trail in the morning be ready for a face full of spider webs for the first lap. This trail is still young and needs a few more seasons to mature. There are a couple of big trees down on the outside loop. One of those you have to crawl under as you can not ride around it. Overall, It's a decent trail if you don't have a lot of time to travel to other trails and the constant tight turns will help with skill building.

Singletrack on the bike specific trail,almost jeep road on the outer multi-use tail that loops around everything. Both are dirt ( no pavement, asphalt, or crushed stone) There are logs to cross none too difficult, and sand in spots so watch out for your front wheel washing out on turns. Tight and twisty ,easy enough for beginners to hone their skills but challenging enough at speed to keep it interesting for intermediate and expert riders looking for a decent ride. Very slight elevation changes, just enough to feel you're going up or down in elevation.

Have ridden it both ways, prefer CCW.

Just heard about this trail the other day and decided to see what it was like. It's located in The Woodlands, TX but Mapquest says it's in Spring. The small, horseshoe parking lot is located on the south side of Flintridge Rd and is easy to miss if you're not paying attention. The park consists of two trails; a 3 1/2 mile long bike trail and a 1 1/4 long multi-purpose trail. The multi-purpose trail is not paved nor does it have any gravel. Just a dirt trail around the park. The bike trail has very tight, twisty singletrack with very little elevation change. There are a few inclines but nothing an experience rider would sweat over. There are quite a few logs placed along the trail of verying degree but all can be crossed by any but the most greenest of beginners. In my opinion this is a great place for beginners to learn good bike skills and for more advanced riders work on switchbacks at speed. The trail ends very close to where it begins. I reccomend riding around once then turn around and do it backwards for a nice 7 mile trip.

Customer Service

Take I-45 North to Woodlands Parkway and go west. Turn left on Gosling Rd then right on Flintridge Rd. Park is 1/4 mile down on the left.
