DESCRIPTION
Last Known StatusOpen
Trail Photo

This small park offers about 9 miles of trails for motorcycles and mountain bikes. Quads, horseback riding and hiking are prohibited, as are overnight camping and campfires. Almost all of the trails are winding single track with mostly unbanked turns and repeated rock-step climbs. Smaller children or novices may find some of the initial sections a bit of a challenge, but once you get going these trails are fairly tame.

The parking area is huge, with shaded picnic areas and basic restrooms. A kiosk at the entrance has a trail map and regulations for self pay. Nearby Emma Long Park has camping, swimming, hiking and boating opportunities on Lake Austin. The park is open daily from 7am-10pm.
