Mountain Biking Muleshoe Bend LCRA

****   Add a review
#61 of 277 mountain bike trails in Texas
#2,325 in the world

Fast ,tight ,twisty loop with a lot of short climbs. 80% shaded by ceder& misquet trees. Lots of sand, rock gardens, limestone out-croppings, and dirt. It takes 30min.-60min. a loop. Watch out for wildlife.

    only 6miles trail but if you take inner loop between the main loop it will add up to around 8 miles the inner loop is very fun. and it loop back to main trail so you can do as many as you want. I like first half of the trail. 1 to 4 is the best part and inner loop B is awesome, mostly single track path. leave on the ground do make it a little slippy. prefect for summer a lot of shaded from beautiful trees.

    This was a really fun trail system. The trails were clearly marked and rated well. The blues had some fun challenges.

    Fast and fun, best thing you can ride for $5 west of Austin. The trail flows of some gravel and baby headed topography. There is not much climbing, but there are some Austin technical ledge-y bits on loop B & D.

    Very fun and fast trail. You won't have to worry about bringing lots of supplies because the parking lot is always close by. This trail reminds me of a roller coaster... lots of medium sized ups and downs. Very beautiful out here.

    Sticking the main trail is a nice ride. Taking the extensions create a much more technical ride. Solid long sections of technical pedaling, a difficult switch back, and some nifty tree dodges can be found on the extensions. If the trail was twice its current length and had a few progressive trail features, it would be stellar.

    Fun, twisting singletrack with a few short hills and small obstacles. Easy enough for a beginner if you walk a few sections. Fun enough for an intermediate rider.* Review edited 6/23/2009

    rode this one yesterday. i had a blast on the trail, nothing too difficult but definately a lot of fun. as others have said, its a very fast trail. this one offers a variety of terrain, mostly hard pack dirt, sand, and loose gravel which is sure to keep you on your toes. there are a few ledges towards the end which will offer somewhat of a challenge. what i found to be the biggest challenge though was controlling your speed through sandy or gravely turns. i slid out a number of times but was able to maintain control...barely. a great trail and a cool park.* Review edited 12/8/2008* Review edited 12/8/2008

    Ride the trail, but spend the rest of the day on the "beach: at the flats or jump off some cliffs if it is still legal

    The description of this trail is accurate but the rating is not. Overall rating should be 6, Aerobic 8, and technical 5. This track is a good begginer course.
