Trail Description
About this trail
They have 20 miles of existing single track with some jeep trails. The trails lead through typical hill country terrain (rocky), with spectacular views, hill climbs (good ones), long downhill sections (best of all), technical single track (yes it is), and several creek crossings (usually dry in the summer).

They do have a map of the area at the main trail head and it is pretty much the main entrance to all the trails. Bring your own water and tools and a couple of tubes! They do have a mechanic stand at the trail head to work on your bike. The cost is $6.00 per person and it is worth every dollar! Fill out the envelopes (at the entrance) and frop your money in the box. NORBA has several races here every year. The downhill race is worth the trip.

Q: If you camp at the ranch, is there a good / safe place to lock your bike? Or what do most people do with their bikes when they camp? Just upgraded my mtn bike so probably still overly cautious with my new favorite toy... -glick056

A: Chain it to a tree next to your tent. that's what we did.

Review: Great ride. $10 entry fee was completely worth it to ride groomed trails. A must hit if you are nearby. Pay attention to the website for open and closure times as the last weekend of october is when the close for the season.

Review: Great trails. Challenging XC on the lower loop. Great climbs and awesome descents with spectacular views on the upper loop.

Review: This place is all around great. You can practice XC, enduro and even some downhill stuff here. Have road it twice to date and once was for a race and the upper loop is a lot of climbing so great for XC but certain trails that drop off of it have almost a downhill feel to them. The trails could use a little bit better marking but hey, it's a giant place so I will give them a slight pass. Bring water, and food as it's a place worth hanging around a bit to explore as much as possible.

Review: Awesome trails, well maintained and absolutely beautiful. The only downfall we found was that the maps were absolutely terrible and made no sense. We ended up going around in circles but we still had fun.

Review: Nice place - typical Texas Hill Country - little dry, but that's what expected in Texas. Lots of fun flowing trails on 2/3 and the other 1/3 is rocky and rough but lots of fun. Great place to camp - they even have rudimentary showers which make a post-ride beverage much more enjoyable! Definitely worth the time and effort to ride this place.

Review: Awesome place to ride/camp. The trails are divided into a lower and upper loop. The lower loop is full of fun long downhill segments with steep and sometimes super technical climbs.

The upper loop is slightly more technical with long rock gardens and more abundant drops and steep downhills. They are currently adding more singletrack to the upper loop that will add another downhill section.

All the trails are directional so you can go at your own pace without worrying about hitting someone head-on.

I highly recommend this place!

Review: Best place I have ridden in the San Antonio area. Worth the Drive. If you aren't up for a tough ride stick to the local parks and places to ride.

Review: We camped and rode the trails for 3 days in late September. I got to ride both loops a couple times. Upper loop more technical. My wife is a beginner and she had fun on the lower loop. The owner is a great guy and jumped our car when we ran down the battery one night. There is a shower. Loved the night time sky.
