Texas has a dearth of public land. And nothing public remotely trail-like near SA.

How can I go about finding particular stretches, I was stationed at Hood before and would just drive around and find stuff but I figure that isn't a good idea anymore because I am pretty sure I was trespassing.

I know a lot of the dirt roads west of I35. Nothing I'd consider technical or trail like (unless the James River Crossing is considered "technical"). I know most of them near Ft. Hood. Just fun...... and pretty country to ride through. Too easy for ya? Speed up. Things can get pretty damn interesting at 100. lol


I use Roads of Texas and the TXDOT online county road grids. Then I'm only wrong half the time.

Thanks for the advice, it would be great to get to Hood and ride out by the ranges. It is really neat out there and if the ranges are clear you can pretty much go any where except for impact zones etc...

Would be great to get someone from the local area so I can hit some of the good stuff. I will most likely be back at Hood in 2 yrs so will have to link up sometime.

Zar's Ranch if you can convince someone to let you on the property with that beast of a bike. Might be a tough sell to a bunch of 450s.

This looks phenomenal actually, thanks for the idea! The bike is probably less damaging than most 450s because of its size but it is a tank. I have been slowly but surely making it into a rather large enduro.

New guy checkin' in. I am currently testing the new Alpinestars Tech Series:



but I should be back on the bike in December. I ride year round so hoping to meet some of you guys and get some riding done.



P.S., I'm still finishing the Dual Sport. Hoping to go get a plate for it soon.

Corpus Christi Area

Thinking about a winter ride from Kansas to Corpus Christi. Of course would like to visit the beach, but wondering if there are any good places to ride in the area? Trails, interesting back roads, scenery.... Doesn't even have to be Corpus Christi.. any coastal areas with cool riding nearby. Any help would be appreciated.
