    Leon Creek Trail Condition?

    I usually ride Leon Creek on the way out to family's house on Thanksgiving. Does anybody know if the conditions will be okay to ride on Thursday with all the rain we had? I don't ride it very often so I don't know how well it drains, etc.

    Thanks for the help anyone.

    Anyone hit the Mac trails yet? Or any trails since the rain and the colder weather came in?

    I'm itching to get on a non-muddy trail...don't like paths and road as much.

    Mac is in fine shape. I went out there yesterday and even the normally muddy spots were not that bad. Tomorrow there is a Time Trial at Mac so if you want to go riding there will be plenty of action.

    Whats up guys. I live in Leon Valley so I ride OP pretty much everyday. I ride solo mostly and on a Trek Rumblefish. All my MTB buddies either live south of DT or up in ATX.

    My route starts of from "The Bend" Sports bar up on Bandera and ride all the way up past Bamberger park and back by sunset for a beer or two . I absolutely love it!

    Not quite sure because I don't have a computer. I am guessing 10 miles give or take?

    I'm assuming if you start at The Bend and head out to the bird sanctuary and back then you are getting more like 14miles. If you add OP to your ride you could get another 4+ miles out of it.

    I've never been to The Bend. Is it any good?

    I may try and get a ride in tomorrow around lunch. I'm assuming the trails will be good since we only got about 15minutes of rain.

    Yeah I wanted to ride tomorrow but not sure how muddy it would be.

    The bend is pretty chill on weekdays, not so much on weekends due to a live band and lots of out-of-towners. But still cool nonetheless.

    Did close to 14miles yesterday. Trails were awesome. The little bit of rain we had compacted the loose stuff and made the trails grippy and fast.

    That's actually just a platform with seating. It's located in the area called "Bird Sanctuary". Going towards UTSA/Valero

    Guys I stumbled across this. Woman claims she saw mountain lion at O.P. Schnabel Park | News - Home

    Kinda freaked me out because I've been riding OP everyday and mostly solo. Do you think this is legit? I used to live in Southern California and attacks on mountain bikers weren't unusual...

    I saw the story a while back. If I recall they didn't find any tracks to confirm what was reported. The TPWD said that it wasn't too far fetched to think that a Mountain Lion would be passing thru the area. I ride those trails on a regular basis and never even think about it. I hear Coyotes from time to time and know there's wildlife out there.

    Got hammered with rain. May be a few puddles tomorrow but the rest of the week should be great. Trails get really fast after a light rain.

    Going to hit OP and Leon Creek for an hour or so tomorrow afternoon. I'll report on the trail condition after the ride. Hoping there's not too much water sitting in the lower parts of the creek.

    I'll be going for a ride in Leon Creek in the am. I was there a week ago with the wife and it was too muddy to ride.

    Hit the trails Sunday morning around 8:30am. Good ride as the trails were dry except for some mud puddles. Nothing that could not be avoided. Lot's of people on the way back as the day was warming up. One area was kind of spooky since we had to navigate 6-7ft grass with only 2ft of sight distance. Can imagine there were some head to head near misses after things get busy.

    Hitting the trails today around 7:30pm for a 10-12 mile ride. Hopefully it will have cooled down a little by then.

    A group of us went to Mac last night at 6:00. The first half hour was a little warm but after that the temp was a non issue. Trails are in great shape at Mac and Leon right now.

    I really need to learn Mac. My buddy and I rode OP & LC yesterday. Trails are gtg until we get more rain. Lots of shade to ride in which makes the afternoon rides more tolerable.
