Best mountain biking location in the Texas Hill Country.
There are over 60 miles of trails in the ranch, and is truly one of those places that skill level is unimportant. There is jeep road and wide singletrack for beginners, and rocky, steep gnarl for the advanced rider, plus plenty for those in between.
The trails can be very challenging without feeling unfair. You know the ones, those that throw a bunch of boulders at the top of a no-momentum, gravel climb just to kill your legs (Brushy Creek, I'm looking at you.) There are VERY challenging sections, but it all fits with the terrain, and the views and descents offer a great reward--and breather--from the various climbs.
Since there are so many miles of trails, there can be long sections where you don't seen anyone, and it's just you, the trees, and the hills.
This trail system is wonderfully fun to ride. The only detractor is that it can be very easy to get lost, even with decent trail markings, until one knows their way around. That can be part of the fun though.
This has supplanted Bluff Creek Ranch as my favorite place to ride.
None that I know of
