A good trip for the whole family, with practically no elevation change and all smooth surfaces. Gator sightings are likely here as well, so if you do bring the kids, keep an eye on them. Two words: pan cake. This trail is so flat it could have given Columbus pause. But that doesn’t mean that a spin around the lakes at Brazos Bend State Park doesn’t offer its own rewards. For the most part the trail is a wide, level gravel path that runs along elevated embankments next to the lakes and sloughs that make up the park’s interior. The easy terrain and the gorgeous scenery—green swampy meadows and trees filled with Spanish moss—make this the perfect family ride. The trail is a connected series of loops, so you can ride as short or as long as you want. Tread: Wide gravel path, some road, little singletrack.
