A particularly fast and curvy stretch of singletrack, the trail at Martin Creek Lake State Park is a blast for riders of any level. It’s relatively flat and mostly tree covered, with ample access to the lake, so summertime rides are a definite possibility—although the hardwoods show some brilliant colors in the cooler fall months. A root-laced piney woods ride that dips incessantly into creekbeds and winds around and over Old Henderson Road, this trail offers an introductory version of the best riding East Texas has to offer. It’s well marked with blazes, white paint, and signs, and it’s as easy to cut short as it is to churn out multiple laps. Tread: Mostly singletrack, some doubletrack.
