Mountain Biking the Hercules Trail (Loop 5) at Cypress Bend Resort

Cypress Bend Nature TrailCypress Bend Nature TrailIn 2008 I started a little tradition of doing a trip to ride my mountain bike for my birthday. In 2009 I was not well enough for such a trip so I had to skip that year. This year, I chose to ride at Cypress Bend Resort on the trails they just opened this year (as of Jan 2019, the trail is now closed). It’s about the same distance from me as Tyler State Park and I was hopeful that there might be some good trails there to add to my options.
