Reveille Peak Ranch - Burnet TX

Average Rating:    (5 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 6

The best mountain bike trails in Texas doesn't begin to describe the sheer awesome that is Reveille Peak Ranch.

Just over 1300 Acres, RPR has just over 62 miles of total trails which include double track and 20 miles of hairy singletrack. There is currently 1 super D run built by Austin's DirtWrx crew, with more to be added. Homeboys also designed and are currently building the pump track based off Whistler's design!

This is the trail to check out if you live anywhere close to the United States.

Summary:
So sick. First time out there and was utterly impressed. While I won't be riding this trail when it's 100 degrees outside, it will be in the rotation during cooler months. Exactly an hour from my house in Round Rock, and there were a few spots where I just had to get off the bike and take pics. There were also one or two spots on the Super D where I got off for fear of being maimed. I can't risk those falls, though I'd love to try just as soon as I hit the lotto. The pump track I didn't ride. There was no point for me on the hardtail 29er. The race loop is AWESOME and I really liked that Epic climb to the high point.

The sheer rock faces were impressive and new to me.

I did catch myself slipping on the Super D and butted my left shin into a big ass piece of pink granite. Bucked me out of the pedals and left me a nice rashy reminder of what can happen out there in a hurry.

I'll be back without a doubt. When...no idea.

Summary:
Off the beaten path. Once we found it, we had a great time. The entrance and pavillion was not something I expected to see. It is sweet out there. I would go daily if it wasn't so far from my residence and it didnt cost $10 to ride. we went on a weekday not knowing it wasn't available for riding. We met an employee there and he allowed us to ride. The tracks were great. Many more to seek out next time. Rocks, climbs, rock, single trails, doubles, you name it...A very cool place. Great workout and will be going back in 2 weeks!!

Summary:
I’m so glad we found this place. We went for the first time this weekend and were blown away with how great the riding is. The terrain was very different from what I normally ride in the Austin area. It is a little southern Utah ish in some areas. The trails are well thought out and have a good flow to them. The facilities were great, the showers were clean and the water was hot. Its just so refreshing to ride trails this great and this different so close to Austin. I’ll be riding here on a regular basis. Can’t say enough good things about this place!

Summary:
this was my first visit to Reveille Peak. i'll definitely be riding it again.
The climbing was beyond my pay grade, but i really liked riding on the granite domes. The Super D was fun. i just needed a truck to haul my ass to the top.
a lot of good hucking opportunities could be had on the second visit once i learn the trail. seemed like a lot of the lines between the reflectors took the easy route and ignored some sweet jumps.
I packed 126oz of water and still ran out. Stashing a cooler at the top near the cross would be recommended.
beer never tasted so good while cooling down in the granite pool next to the pavilion.
I'm trying to think of ways to trick my wife to visit Reveille on a family camping trip.

Summary:
We made the trip out to Burnett and we were blown away at how nice the facility and $10 to ride here but the trails are nothing like any other trail system in Texas.

If you have never ridden on granite it is like riding on sandpaper. Amazing traction and a great change from the limestone that dominates the Hill Country trails. Hard to call it slickrock, but they are quite a few sections you'll encounter that have no cracks but a wide variety of undulations that require a quick eye to pick the right line.

There are some distinct differences on the trails. When you hit the Upper Loop you will either love your chance to show off your technical skills, or you will learn where you are lacking. Walls, shelves, drops, squeezes are all waiting on you. The hardest part is to look far enough ahead to pick the best line. When you finally hit the Race Loop section you will get a chance to get out of your small ring and get some speed, but be ready for a sudden downshift and a granite bubble to attack. Leave your titanium pedals at home, you will be scraping pedals along the way.

One girl we passed along the way described it best between gasping for air as "crazy fun', I fully agree.

The facilities are easily the nicest I have ever seen at a place like this. Great chance to cool off afterwords and shower up. BYOB and bring your own soap as well. Have a few brews in the pavilion after the ride and look at the smiles of the riders and you too will be hooked.

We'll be camping here to get in multiple rides. Nothing fancy there but people can hang at the pavilion at night and meet new friends.

Check the website to be sure they are not having an adventure race or if open to the public.

Recommended Route:
Rubber side down.
