Summary:
Fun fun fun and more fun. Hit this for my birthday and wasn't let down. Plenty of tough rocky challenges with a variety of log climbs, fast cruisers, and little wooden launch ramps that just pop out to insure some airtime. Took the 15 miler and almost ran over a snake. Had just enough h2o to get back to the car. Followed that with a dip in the river and climb back to the car to = a perfect day. Peace

Recommended Route:
Advanced

All of them.

Summary:
The trails are a mix of flat, smooth singletrack and hilly, rocky singletrack. It's a real nice trail system. I think it's under-rated.

The aerobic difficulty is 2-4 depending on the trails you pick. The technical difficulty is 2-4 depending on the trail you pick. I don't think it's the best trail around but I think it deserves a 5 star rating. I'd happily ride there anytime.

Recommended Route:
The beginners trail is pretty easy. It's flat, twisted singletrack with very few small obstacles. This is where I take new mountain bikers or go for an occasional fast, easy ride.

The intermediate trails are much more difficult. Lots of short, steep hills and numerous obstacles. There are a number of obstacles I don't care to ever try, but most of it is ridable by and intermediate rider.

The advanced/race loop mostly adds a few more intermediate miles.

Pick a route and follow the signs.

Pace Bend, Muleshoe, Madrone

Summary:
An excellent trail with plenty of variety. Good for beginners and challenging fast/technical for better riders. The local club, Austin Ridge Riders, opened up fresh trail for the April 5th TMBRA race. I found the trail technically challenging when trying to "clear" the ledges/descents at race pace. Although the older sections were eroded and rocky, the newer sections had good ground cover.

Summary:
Rode the 10 mile expert loop on March 17, 2008 in preparation for the upcoming TMBRA race in April...Was in shock to how little bit of climbing was on this loop...especially being in the rugged hill country..its seems like your going back and forth across the hills with a lot of big rocks to ride over..there are some tight rocky singletrack areas too...there were about 4 uphill rock ledge climbs that were about 3 to 5 feet in height...it was better to dismount than to attempt to ride over them, especially after i crashed and banged my front big chainring on the large boulders (rocks)....most of the trail was smooth dirt and it seemed like a lot of the trail was fast downhill..they have one section which is a long fast downhill ride...the double diamond expert area was basically a little ditch with large rocks..if you pick the right line its no big deal to ride it....like i said earlier, very little climbing for the hill country...the pedelnales river runs through the ranch and is beautiful...the water is emerald green...pretty place to ride..wish i lived in the hill country...take care and go enjoy the ride.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
FlatRock Ranch in Comfort, Texas, if you like alot of climbing..about 3,000 feet per 25 mile lap..

Summary:
Wow! What a layout...something for everyone.

The trails are unbelievably long (18-20 miles), have some drops, have some good climbs, fair ramp jumps, lots of twists and turns, good all-out balls to the wall high speed areas, and some nice scenery.

Trails are marked well and are in good shape...be very, very careful of the double black diamond trails - i.e. just pick up you bike and hike, especially back by the river.

Interesting note - all of the Cedar has been cleared, which is a refreshing change of terrain.

Recommended Route:
Right just before you get to Hamilton Pool.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Goodwater trail, Walnut, Barton Creek, etc.
