Description: Stephen F Austin State Park (SFA) is a hidden gem west of Houston.  Though this trail does not feature any technical features to speak of, the layout and flow of the trail make for a fast ride similar to Double Lake.  Swooping through the trees along the banks of the Brazos River the trails at SFA are smooth and flowy unlike the root gardens of Houston proper.  Combined with gradual elevation changes and a few steep hills makes for a fun, fast ride .  SFA’s trails are multi-use and two-way so always use caution on these and always be in control of your speed.
