    In San Antonio for the weekend, where to ride?

    Staying near Seaworld. Looking for some of the SA trails I've always heard about! I have a few hours Sundays morning to get in a few miles. Any suggestions? Anyone riding a trail near Seaworld?

    Thanks!
    Jeff

    Awesome! Anyone planning a rider here tomorrow morning? Also, are the trails marked well enough for a solo ride?

    Thanks again for the tip!

    Wish I could ride but unfortunately I have work all day. But yes all the trails are pretty well marked. Just be sure to get a map at the entrance or the ranger station. Be sure to take cash cause I think its $6 to get in. Front country is nice and easy. Back country is very rocky and intense but hella fun! Take plenty of water too.

    Had a great ride this am! Great technical climbs on Sendero Balcones. Then on to Wildcat Canyon for some chunky decents. A word to the wise, don't get macho when the cute forest ranger girl asks what kind of ride you are looking for... She pointed me to the Sendero trail, my computer showed 600+ ft of loose limestone climbing in less that 1.5 miles! Nothing like that in Houston!! Great weather, better scenery, had a great morning on the bike! Only wish I had more time. UFC + beer equals a late morning...

    I'll try and post a few pics soon.

    Raptor, thanks again for the great trail suggestion!

    Next time we'll send you to Leon Creek, totally different ride but you'll love it just the same.
    I'd rather be riding than healing, body armor is your friend ! :D

    haha damn you went up Sendero? I made the mistake of going up Wildcat the 1st time I went out there!! oh man that was not fun. Went again recently and it was awesome, my Superfly dominated out there. What I plan on doing from now on is use Johnson to go up and then just come down all the rest, Caroline Loop,Wildcat and Sendero.
