There is some pretty cool trail in here. Not the hardest in the state, or the prettiest, but worthy woods just the same. There are trails and trails and trails out here—you may wonder if you know where you are from time to time; I know I did. The loop I rode was fairly well marked, as if for a race, and I think a local bike shop may have been involved. I’d spend some money there if I were y’all. The trails wander all through the trees along the creeks in the park, and you will find a challenge or two in the technical vein, but mostly this is a relatively easy trail. You can crash off into some creeks if you want, test the rear suspension and all that, but just don’t run over anybody. There are a lot of people out here on a nice afternoon. Or, if you’re like I am, you can just do an ooze-along and forget some stress.

BIKER GOING WRONG WAY ON BLUE RUN HITS ME! Outer loop (6.4 mile blue run). An out-of-control biker crashed into me and my friend this weekend. It was Horrible! After getting up of off the ground, I asked "why are you riding towards the back of the mile markers" (he was facing the back of the signs...flying down the hill clockwise)???" He crashed into us coming from behind (not facing) the blue 3 mile sign marker. Its on the small hill of blue outer run by the baseball area. He said he goes both ways...and "who the *uck cares" which way is which. I said "if you can read the front of the posted mile marker signs (riding your bike counter clockwise w/ your right shoulder always facing to the outside of the clock/loop)...Then you are going the right way, safe way to ride the bike trial. I told him if the mile markers signs are NOT facing you, or you can't read them, then you are going the WRONG WAY! He gave us a dirty look...No sorry, nothing else, with his head phones blaring, he said "who *ucking cares which way is what"! Then took off! We were in shock! My bike front rim was bent. My knee was bleeding. A few seconds later, another biker coming from our direction. She, asked us if we needed help. We briefly to her what happened. She said, that the guy almost hit her a few yards back on the trail! My friend and i walked my bike back to our car near the front entrance lot. I've been riding this trail for over 2yrs. I RIDE COUNTER CLOCKWISE. I SEE THE MILE MARKERS PAINTED ON SIGNS FACING FORWARD

This is the best trail in San Antonio for continuous flowing single-track riding. It is not too technical and suits riders of all categories. Most of the more experienced riders I know use this trail for cardio workouts since it flows so well. Recently, there have been additions of jumps places along the creekbed sections for those looking for a little more excitement. Highly recommend this trail.

Have rode park six times and found new areas each time. Blue Trail has changes around each corner. Great place to learn skills - something for everyone!

Easy to moderate trails and several to choose from. I really liked it compared to what I have seen so far in this particular area. The park is easy to find and it felt safe. Whether a person is bike riding or hiking (I did both)it is the perfect place to go.........especially last minute if you live in the area.

There are several trails throughout the park that are excellent for hiking but are quite difficult for the beginner/intermediate level. Several areas of errosion require bike dismount with some difficult unsteady downhills. Some fun/flat area after initial work to get there, well suited for the advanced aggressive rider.
