Cleburne State Park mountain bike and hiking trails offer 13 miles of beautiful scenery with a variety of challenges for all experience levels. The terrain on the trail is as diverse as the hills. You will experience treacherous downhills, fast smooth flats, and everything in between. The technical and wooded trails form an entire loop that has made this trail a favorite for mountain bikers in training or those who enjoy a challenging ride. The trail will test your skills and endurance and is well worth your time!
The Coyote course is one of the toughest in Texas packing a 1250' gain per the 8 mile loop.
