Description:This is a wooded intermediate to advanced single track trail system along the south bank of Buffalo Bayou between Eldridge and Wilcrest streets.  This is a fun twisty single track ride with lots of ups and downs over trails that crisscross between the lower river bank and the top of the bank (as much as 40' of elevation change in some areas).  There are several seriously steep but short climbs in the middle trails. The trails along the lower river bank and up on top are easier. The middle trails get progressively more difficult as you make your way toward Wilcrest.  Due to the proximity to the river the undergrowth grows quickly so visibility around the next corner may not be the best.  Holler out often to warn others of your presence.
