Davis Mountains State Park, TX
Mountain Bike Trails
This is the only mountain bike trail in the main part of Davis Mountains State Park. It's short, but there's lots of climb. It's a lollipop loop and at the high point you'll have great views of the Davis Mountains.
Enjoy the views from Skyline Drive on the paved uphill, then get bounced around a bit on the downhill on the Old CCC Road Trail. The 360 degree view at the top shows lots of the Davis Mountains, the town of Fort Davis and the wide open plains.
This trail goes quickly up from the main road in the park and offers great views of the surrounding area. Keep a lookout for the rare Montezuma Quail that lives in the area
Opened to mountain bikes in 2012, the primitive area of Davis Mountains State Park lies across the highway from the main part of the park. The trail follows an old road along the bottom for the first mile before heading uphill. The route shown here . . .
This trail starts up the depression-era road built by the Civilian Conservation Corps, then cuts more steeply up to meet Skyline Drive at the top. It's a lollipop loop and at the high point you'll have great views of the Davis Mountains and the town . . .
