Well, I do know (luckily, not from firsthand experience) that the San Antonio Park Police are actively patrolling Devi's Den and stopping and ticketing people for wheeling out there. I have seen their vehicles from Ingram Road, and that's enough to keep me and my Jeep outta there!

Cheers! M2

I took a look at this place on youtube. Very cool!! My buddy said he knew knows where it is, and has taken his Jeep, and father's Land Rover out there in the past. Too bad few people have to ruin it for everyone else.

Yep, it is a state law...S.B. 155: Restricting Motor Vehicle Use In Protected Freshwater Areas was passed in 2004; but for Devil's Den there mere fact that it is now city property and there are 'no motor vehicle' signs posted all along the boundaries should be enough to keep law-abiding citizens from four-wheeling out there.

I still might dust off the mountain bike and see if I can ride it out there. I know the area is well patrolled by the Park Police, so the first thing I would do is track one of them down to make sure it is legal to bicycle on the property.

I'm 99% sure that you can ride your mountain bike in there. No motocross, ATV's or ORV's though

I'm glad that I got to go in and wheel when it was still legal (or at least they weren't pushing the law too much). It was a fun place. My club used to even do clean up days in there. Heck, when we were just there to wheel we always had trash bags full when we left (other people's trash).

There is something funky in the dirt there. When you would go in the mud, it would turn your tires blue ICKY!!!!
