Trail is beside Oyster Creek, located in the public right-of-way drainage and flood control area.
This trail is known to the city of Missouri City however it is not officially accredited. GHORBA, our trail manager and the Park and Trail Department of Missouri City have met and we are allowed to maintain this trail "as long as we do not impede city maintenance vehicles or build any permanent or semi-permanent features". This is a dirt-path trail with rock/concrete "features" consisting of drainage improvements installed and maintained by the city. Trail is subject to flooding however this trail is usually dry and ride-able within 24 hours of a rain storm.

Access Info

Trail Head(s) are at the footbridge behind the neighborhood adjacent to Quail Valley Middle School, the bridge at Oyster Creek and Cartwright Rd and the bridge at Oyster Creek and Dulles Ave. A "no drop" group ride meets on Wednesday nights at 6:30pm or 6pm depending on decision by the trail captain. Please visit the Sugar Land MTB Trails Public Facebook group page for details.

This trail is open to the public but not mantained by the city of Missouri city.
