    Heavy, wet fog this morning(visibility 100yds?). The trails were still a little slick at my 11am start but were drying nicely by my finish around 1p.



    A cold front is suppose to be moving thru tonight so hopefully it will take some of this moisture with it.

    Riding Sunday 3-16

    I am planning on driving up from Austin to ride Cameron Park this Sunday (3/16) and wanted to know the trail conditions. I have been told that there is a race going on Sunday. Can you tell me if the trails will be open Sunday and if the group ride at 2 PM will be happening.

    There is a TMBRA race out there all day and you won't be able to ride until at least 3-4pm. The course will be closed if you aren't racing.

    What DirtFace said...there's no club ride either, as most of us are racing.

    The beginners start at 1:30(1 hr lap) and then I believe they do the under 12 groups after the beginners finish up.

    It's spring break, but the wife is off tomorrow so I was thinking about trying tomorrow.


    The trails were pretty dry on Monday so two days should be plenty.

    The trails were decent. They should be just about perfect tomorrow.

    Easter Sunday

    Trails be dry.


    The trees sounded angry this morning so watch for fallen debris.

    Hey guys new to the site and new to the cameron Park followers so was just wondering a few things.... It's been a looong time since I'v been on a mountain bike and I used to be really good at what I did but I'm finding that it's a perishable skill lol. I'm just getting back into it an in the process of buying another bike (Motobecane fantom trail) hard tail and was wondering what you recommend to start on in cameron. I've kinda got the tendency to immediately go big I'm still young and can afford to get hurt but how are the more difficult trails? Will I end up biting off more than I can chew? It's been ohhhhh about nine years since I've been on an MB. Well thanks for your time and hopefully one of these days I'll run into some of you guys on the trails!

    I think you should be ok on all the blue square stuff--as far as black diamonds--probably Highlander--I just mention this coz I'm notorious for walking overly techie stuff and I can ride most of the stuff I mentioned. The other black diamonds be careful on. Yes, you say crashing is coolness--true that--until the trail puts a BIG HURT on yo ass

    CP is rated like ski slopes...blue and green are easy, black is a little tougher, and double black is for "experts".

    That being said, me and plenty of other riders out there can do the double blacks on rigid bikes....so a HT should be no problem.

    I'd recommend coming out to the Waco Bicycle Club rides on Sunday afternoons, 2 pm from the Redwood Shelter (at the entrance to the park). It's a very good group to ride with, and splits up according to ability. Everyone's friendly, and it's usually a fun way to spend your Sunday afternoon.

    If you want to jump into some riding during the week, post up in our Ride thread for Baylor Cycling. I ride maybe 4 times a week at CP, and many others ride a lot as well. Most people will cater to "new" riders (ie we won't leave you stranded out there)

    Welcome back to the sport...you've picked a good place to start again.

    Holy hell you guys respond fast! lol Well thanks for all the info guys I'll probably get warmed up on the easy stuff and then see if my muscle memory comes back and jump on a black just to see if I can make it Oh and I never said crashing was cool lol It just makes you appreciate conquering that bump or that log or that nasty ledge that much more fulfilling! Can be fun as long as there are no broken bones Thanks for the info on the ride times too and Bui I'll make sure I don't get left behind lol

    Green -- easy
    Blue -- easy, but a few are misleading
    Black -- not really techincal, just aerobically challenging
    Double Black -- techy downhills


    Trails are bi-directional for the most part.

    Colorado is a down only(Check the DO NOT ENTER sign at the bottom) , Vortex should be labeled as down only*, the double blacks(Thor, babbler) off of Lover's Leap have signs.

    Sounds good I should have my bike within the month so hopefully I'll be out there soon. Found what seems to be a pretty decent map of the trails to take with me seems like I'm going to need it. The more I read about cameron park the more it seems it's common for people to get lost roaming around out there.

    because it is an intertwined trail system take either a map or a local.

    if you go out alone and get lost, just go downhill until you come to the river. then go right and it will take you to the redwood shelter.

    post up on here when youre ready to ride, there are plenty of us who will show you around.
    Geez, I dunno how it happened. I was just riding along then all the sudden...
