This is an overall great park. There is a nice 4 mile beginner loop that works for a good warmup. When you string that together with the normal trail that follows the expert trail and race loop, you get about 18 miles. There is a little everything - Rocky climbs, flat twists and turns, chunky rock, rocky climbs, a few small drops, rocky climbs, tight technical ledgy areas, did I mention rocky climbs? Oh, don't forget the rattlesnakes!
There is also a great wooden pump track (yes, wooden), fantastic facilities including a most wonderful outdoor shower head to rinse the dirt off and cool down. The pavilion makes for a wonderful place to eat a post ride lunch. All in all, a gem of the Austin hill country.
