TAMUC Trail

The TAMUC Trail is located on the south side of Culver and the Outdoor Adventure Center, and just west of Cain Sports Complex.

The trail is a 5 mile circuit comprised of four different loops. The trail has been professionally designed for both bicycle and pedestrian traffic. It loops around a pond and continues along a dirt trail through a variety of woods and fields. The trail provides exciting fitness opportunities away from busy streets as well as relaxing opportunities for walks along wooded paths. It is home to a variety of wildlife that enriches the experience. 

The trail is open to the public from 5:00 AM to 10:00 PM. If the trail is closed due to inclement weather or muddy conditions, the front gate will be locked.  The Outdoor Adventure Center offers rental bikes, clinics and group rides to help develop good mountain biking skills and connect groups of bikers.

Trail Rules

  1. Ride Open Trails: Respect trail closures. Do not trespass on private land.
  2. Leave No Trace: Be sensitive to the dirt beneath you. Wet and muddy trails are more vulnerable to damage than dry ones. When the trail is soft, consider other riding options. This also means staying on existing trails and not creating new ones. Don't cut switchbacks. Be sure to pack out at least as much as you pack in.
  3. Control Your Bicycle: Inattention for even a moment could put yourself and others at risk. Ride within your limits.
  4. Yield Appropriately: Do your utmost to let your fellow trail users know you're coming — a friendly greeting or bell ring are good methods. Try to anticipate other trail users as you ride around corners. In general, strive to make each pass a safe and courteous one.
  5. Never Scare Animals: Animals are easily startled by an unannounced approach, a sudden movement or a loud noise. Give animals enough room and time to adjust to you. Running cattle and disturbing wildlife are serious offenses.
  6. Plan Ahead: Know your equipment, your ability and the area in which you are riding and prepare accordingly. Strive to be self-sufficient: keep your equipment in good repair and carry necessary supplies for changes in weather or other conditions. Always wear a helmet and appropriate safety gear. Participation can be hazardous.
  7. Organized events and activities: Must be scheduled with Outdoor Adventure.
  8. Register every visit at the trail head kiosk.
  9. No motorized vehicle or equine use allowed on the trail system.
