Mountain Biking Lake Bastrop Mtb Trail

****   Add a review
#147 of 277 mountain bike trails in Texas
#5,730 in the world

The trail travels around the West end of the lake from between the two shores. The trail is a relatively mild trail good from beginners to experienced. There are some decent ascents up rocky hills that are difficult due to the softball size rocks. The trail is not necessarily a trail you would travel to ride, but if you are in the area and want to get 10 miles in (out and back), it worth hitting up. Be careful of the sand in various corners that will grab a wheel and have its way. LCRA charges $4 per person entry fee.

    Beginner ride with mainly roiling double track with loose rocks. The south shore park has has bonus flat beginner single track.

    More experienced riders will find the rolling hills a good workout with speed but otherwise boring.

    Beginner trail. Lends itself to increased difficulty by increasing speed. For an experienced rider, it can be a fast, fun ride. After extended dry periods, a few areas have short runs of soft sand in the tight corners. 4.5 miles out, 4.5 back. There is an additional 3 mile loop on the South Shore for an approximate 13 mile total ride.
