Madrone Trail

Madrone Trail Trailhead

Due to circumstances surrounding kiddos, dance conventions and babysitting, I found myself in the position of being in San Marcos, Texas with a couple of hours to get away from it all. After hunting around and asking for tips, I settled on heading out to the Madrone Trail at Canyon Lake Park.

The day was cloudy and cool. Temps were around 51F. I met up with a fellow Bike Mojo rider and we hit up the trail for a couple of laps.

The trail is reminiscent of Pace Bend Park, only with more gnar and less fast and flowy. While there is less than at Pace Bend, there is plenty of flow to the trail. And the numerous rock gardens gave ample opportunity to test line choice decisions and rock climbing abilities.

All in all, I found the trail to be fantastic. If the trail were closer, it would definitely be in my regular rotation of rides. I greatly enjoyed the ride and the company was good!

While this will be classified as a destination trail, it is one that I would make the trip for and definitely would not pass up if I happen to already be in the area.

There is no usage fee. The trail is covered pretty well so will be a good summer ride.
