This trail doesn't really exist anymore. What's left of it (about 1/4 mile) is now part of the East End Park trail system. Development of neighborhoods north of EEP in Kingwood took it from us bikers years ago. Don't go looking for the "epic" ride it used to boast, you'll be like the crying Indian in the old Keep America Beautiful commercial. East End Park trails are neat, especially if you live nearby, but very "pedestrian", nothing that a mountain biker would consider technical. However, the trails are being expanded and with the proper political clout they probably could add a loop or two with a few tricks to make it appealing to off roaders.

Well it sounds like it used to freakin rock but I found it this last summer, summer of 07 and it sucked real bad! No trail connecting it to East End Park and some idiot developers destroyed all the forested land due to their greed and probably a large chunk of the trail. It really sucked, it took like 2 minutes to go through it. I could tell that it used to be awesome but now since the developers destroyed most of it, nobody cares about it anymore! Screw developers and their freakin greed. They destroy so much land in Houston, they need to die or at least stop destroying all of our open spaces! Sucks too because I live in Kingwood during the summers, and Arkansas the rest of the year which rocks for MBing. It is like 1 mile away from my house in Kingwood. Sounds like it started sucking in 03. Tis a shame!

Customer Service

A good trail now that they have rebuilt the bridges. It is fun to ride if you have some spare time to ride. Not very technical some parts are though.

Customer Service

Just follow the hot pink markes (if their there) and you will be fine.

THE TRAIL IS FLAT. NO REAL HARD STUFF ON THIS RIDE, BUT IT SURE BEATS THE GREENBELT TRAILS. WATCH OUT FOR COPPERHEADS. EARLY MORNING IS THE BEST TO RIDE. TOO MANY PEOPLE AND DOGS AS THE DAY GOES ON. RIDE IT FAST AND LOOK FOR ANY BROKEN DOWN GRASS/DIRT, CAUSE THERE ARE A FEW RIDER MADE SHORTCUTS TO ADD TO THE FUN.

Customer Service

TAKE I-59 EXIT KINGWOOD DR. GO EAST ON KINGWOOD DR. TO THE VERY END. IT STOPS AT EAST END PARK.

This trail is flat and paved over with pressed gravel. It is now a old person jogging, dog walking, stroller rolling park. If you are looking to just ride your bike on something that is not concrete and you live in kingwood then come on down.

Customer Service

all of it as fast as you can repeatedly

Used to be o.k. Now all bridges are washed away totally. Trail is unmarked, chaotic, sections have been wiped out due to development. If you are a local, go play around on it, otherwise don't make a trip out to Kingwood just to ride this trail, you will be disapointed.

Customer Service

Follow Kingwood drive until it dead ends then park.

Cypresswood in Spring, or Memorial Park in Houston are the closest that are worth riding.

This is the renamed east end park trail.its just east end park sounded like a walk in the park and this trail is just not that.The singletrack is not all that hard but if you ride all the man made stuff, youll need to stock up on spokes.for the riders that have been out here the local bike shop(bike source in kingwood)guys built a kick ass bidge over the bayou.....but its no walk in the park.........

Great trail for area. 4-5 mile after first creek crossing. Were helmets. Long steady runs with technical riding(Bridges-Drop offs) Trail is going to be extended soon. Needs to be rode on to help pack the trail.

Customer Service

Take 59 north to Kingwood Drive. Turn left go all the way to the end. Then follow the Pink/Grey arrows.

Well this is a ggod trail you can definately get a good burn on the legs I feel more so than Memorial, but if you are looking for hills to climb they are lacking.. but the manmade bridges are really cool took me a while to find it but when I did i was pleased. Hurry though those damn construction people are wacking trees on part of the trail You won't be disappointed!
