Mountain Biking Reimers Ranch Park

****   Add a review
#40 of 275 mountain bike trails in Texas

This has fast tracks, expert with some technical and beginner and intermediate. Fun for the whole family! This is a charge at the gate now that the county has taken it over.

  • The Tip
    ****

    In June of 2020 the new Flow Trails area opened. The first of several planned downhill runs was mostly machine built. This means big jumps and big berms. There are also several doubles, step ups, and smaller jumps. Seek this area out as it is unique to the Austin area.

    The other side of the park, the original mountain bike area, is well planned. But it is not readily apparent how it is laid out. It takes a bit of study to realize that all the trails are one way loops of varying difficulty. It is even possible to "ride it all" with no repeating of trail if you plan it well. But if you can't do tech, for example, do not enter one of the black loops.

    There are nice restrooms and water fountains. And a river to swim in after your ride. Note that the entry fee is now $5/person, not the $10/car like it was before.

    Good for beginners, NOT so much fun for advanced riders due to lack of features, no elevation, few trees, too hot during summer.

    Love the trails- lots of variety and easy to pick level of difficulty. They have done controlled burns and the beginner trail is especially beautiful- native Texas grasses and scattered oak motts. Ride it slow enough to enjoy. It's classic Texas Hill Country.

    I love the blue and black area.
    tip of the day go early to avoid the heat. the park is hardly any shaded. I will start at 8 am is best. It is getting pretty hot in summer. after the ride go to pool area for a dip to cool down is pretty awesome. the parking lot just on the right from where the headtrail mountain bike paking lot.

    Nice flowing one way single track and the wooden pump track was a nice surprise!

    I want my $10 back. There are better places to ride an hour drive from ATX (think Pace Bend, or Rocky Hill). Best experienced if you have friends climbing here and want to he a multi sport day in. There is some topography, but like most Texas trail features are wasted with 90° turns before or after them. The 'descent' is a straight fast line with almost nothing to do. The pasture you have to ride back to the car is long, flat and tedious. Bring your cyclocross bike for a better experience.

    This is really a set of trails, from novice to expert. ID'ed as green to black.
    Make sure you get a detailed trail map when you pay your $10 day fee.
    While the black trails had hike-a-bike spots quite frequently on that loop, the blues were pretty "flowy".
    The green loop is mostly a flat smooth flowy trail on a ridge top, but fun if you move along quickly.
    If you like flowy singletrack, this is a great park; just skip the black sections.

    I really disliked the trails here. They were ridiculously rocky and had zero flow. Maybe my idea of a fun trail is very different from others. There were a lot of times you'd be cranking up a hill make a tight turn only to be faced with an 18" ledge or a pile of roots. It just made the majority of the trail a slow grinder. I bailed out after six miles. It just wasn't fun at all.

    I was really excited to finally make it out and give this trail a shot and I was not dissappointed. This trail provided everything you could ask for. I spent the first hour or so riding the more difficult trails, which consisted of some nice climbs and drops. After I was a little tired I took a nice break and rode the 8 mile novice loop. It was a nice loop and great to be so secluded in the Texas hill country. Can't wait to go back. Do not forget to bring plenty of water and a snack. * Review edited 9/7/2010

    A solid trail with some "Very Difficult" obstacles to climb. The low grade and limited vertical, common on most central Texas trails, produce nice flow through out the ride. Overall, the trail fits the "More Difficult" definition. Only a few obstacles force a higher rating. The cheese wedges through out the park give the trail a bit zest that might otherwise be missing. Reimers Ranch is a solid place to take a rider ready for more technical riding. They can see what can be done without being overwhelmed. Competent riders will find the ride enjoyable with a few spots to dial weaker skills.

    We love this trail. It is a nice ride for either beginners or the expert. You can spend the entire day at this park, riding,hiking, rock climbing and swimming. The park is kept clean.
    Well worth the cost.

    I love that at this park the trail is one way only. The trails are well marked. Someone that is a beginner should have no problem here. They do have bike races here on weekends so call first. We went the week before a scheduled race and the race folks had covered up the signs and we ended up on the advance trail. Not fun! We told the park folks & were told the signs weren't suppose to be covered up yet. * Review edited 4/5/2009

    I think this is sweet single track for a lot of the trail on the decent off the hill and great technical challenge on your way up. I'm surprised by the low rating. It is very hot in the summer as there is little shade in the most difficult sections.
