Mountain Biking Brushy Creek Extension

*****   Add a review
#53 of 277 mountain bike trails in Texas
#1,789 in the world

The six parks that lie along the trail are Creekside Park near Great Oaks Drive, Olsen Meadows Park, Champion Park, Brushy Creek Lake Park, Brushy Creek Sports Park, and Twin Lakes Park near 183 in Cedar Park. These parks provide many different amenities accessible to walkers, runners and bikers. Together, the parks have a collaboration of splash pads, swimming areas, climbing rocks, fishing docks, canoeing and kayaking, restrooms and multiple picnic and pavilion areas. The trail links residential communities, businesses and retail centers and existing and proposed parks while promoting conservation and stewardship of open space, greenbelts and wetlands.
The goal for the trail is for it to traverse the County covering approximately 30 miles, connecting the Highland Lakes to Hutto, and linking the Brushy Creek Regional Trail with other trail systems in Travis County. The City of Round Rock and Williamson County are currently working on the newest section of the east trail that will continue the regional trail west to A.W. Grimes Boulevard and connect to the Greater Lake Creek Trail System. With this addition, the total length of the Brushy Creek Regional Trail East will be 3.75 miles. Together, Round Rock and Williamson County will continue to push the two sections of trail toward IH-35, eventually connecting the east section with the west section.

    I love "Deception", officially called "Double Down" now, I think. It's an adrenaline rush every time you don't kill yourself dropping or climbing a ledge. The trail has a lot of loose rock/gravel and requires skill. I love the tight switch backs, the punchy, tough ascents and the sketchy descents. Not for beginners or people who love to ride Walnut Creek.

    Deception. A very hard technical trail

    This review is about the single track sections in the woods and not the regional paved trail.

    This is a solid trail. It's about 8 miles but when I finished I felt like I had done 13. The main portion of the trail is called Deception and rightfully so. For multiple reasons. One being that the first few miles really make you feel accomplished and talented then maybe around the middle or thereafter it starts to get really tough. There are plenty of ledges large rocks, and switch backs, I think another deceptive thing about the trail is that they only had so much space to work on with the trails so a lot of the trails run adjacent to one another. Often times you'll think someone is coming towards you but they are just on another trail. It's trippy.

    All in all I love this trail and will be heading back as often as I can to practice everything it has to offer.

    I would NOT recommend this trail to beginners.
