Mountain Biking Pedernales Falls State Park

***   Add a review
#92 of 277 mountain bike trails in Texas
#3,218 in the world

Pretty sweet double track geared towards a beginners needs but simply beautiful way to spen an afternoon. If you decide to explore the falls on bike be careful as the park rangers sometimes don't like it.

    The singletrack is technically satisfying but the Juniper trail must have been cut when mountain bike bars were 580mm wide because there are so many trees near the trail that a modern 780mm or wider bar is simply impassable. I measured some tree gaps at under 700mm wide, impossible to get through! Judging by the torn up bark, it appears many riders have met grief. Do you know how hard you have to hit a juniper tree to tear the bark off? Ouch. I didn't enjoy riding this trail with the constant fear of faceplanting. In my estimation, one important part of building a trail is to clear the brush so riders can actually ride the trail. The builders at Pedernales obviously had other ideas of what makes a trail. Do NOT recommend.

    If you do the easy trail you won't have a ton of fun. Find the harder trails and ride those, they will be a challenge. They are very rocky.

    I added a lot of photos of the trail to help you see.

    Caution No gps in park,bring water, snack and tools. not much rider will pass by so be prepare. I was there Sunday and we pass couple people on wolf trail but noone on Juniper trail.

    Good for many level for all the riders, the park have to map color out the trail.
    Wolf trail is 6 feets and wider up and down hill more of the times. nothing danger.
    Juniper ridge trail is 2 feets or smaller usually a drop on side. rock step and uneven terrain. try the short black area before commit to the end where there is not exit once you are on the trail.
