East Loop: 14+ miles of trail
West Loop: Opened back up for riding on May 2nd 2020 after having been closed since early 2016 due to levee maintenance. Presently it has about 6.5 miles of trail open, follow the detour sign when you get to the levee access road at the entrance of Little Warda (see map) to take you to the return trail. As of 5/22/2020, Little Warda remains to be re-established. It will have some modifications made to it to bring more of the trail into the woods. Check back for scheduled work days.
Occasionally the trails will be closed due to mud or maintenance. Riding the trails when they are muddy causes tire ruts. Water pools in these ruts when it rains and contributes to erosion in the area. Most riders go around the pools of water and, as a result, cause additional trail erosion.
Trail erosion can cause entire sections of trail to be closed for months at a time while they dry out and are rebuilt.
Most importantly: The land the trails are on (and the rest of Lake Bryan) is owned by BTU for the primary purpose of generating electricity. If trail erosion in any way damages any part of the levee or surrounding area, BTU will be forced to close the trail system to protect their investment in the power plant.
Please help us keep the trails open rideable, and do not ride the trails when they are wet.
How to get to Lake Bryan:
Starting at Texas A&M University in College Station, TX, take George Bush Drive west to FM 2818. Turn right (north) on FM 2818. Take FM 2818 until you pass the Hwy. 21 exit and come to a blinking yellow light. Take a left (west) at the blinking yellow light on to Sandy Point Rd. The park will be on the right about 3 miles ahead on Sandy Point Rd.
Once in the Park: After passing the toll booth, take the first left toward the boat ramp. Go right to find a parking spot on the pavement, or go left on the dirt road on the edge of the lake to find a parking spot near the trail head. The trail starts on the levee near the entrance of the park. There are trails on both sides of the lake. Trails on the west side of the lake are more suitable for the beginner/intermediate, and trails on the east side of the lake are more for the intermediate/expert. Take a look at the trail map at the entrance to the levee to get an idea of where the trails run.
