Mountain Biking Rocky Hill Ranch

****   Add a review
#3 of 282 mountain bike trails in Texas
#199 in the world

Over the since 2021 tremendous changes have been undertaken at Rocky Hill Ranch. A sale of part of the ranch left 6.5 miles of singletrack, which has been increased to 16.5 miles. Everything about the trails is better than ever and there is something for everyone. Trails are signed with names, rating, and info for shorter loops that can provide 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9 mile rides. Additionally, there is a Green loop that can be up to 10 miles, with plenty of options to bail at road crossings and follow "HOME" signs back to the car. The trails can be found on MTBProject and Trailforks phone apps. Download the latest "Texas" area file to have the latest map. Rocky Hill Ranch is open 24/7/365 and has both primitive camping and RV spots with electricity and water. There are showers and restrooms. Sadly, the former Rocky Hill Saloon in now used as a covered pavilion for groups to gather or as shelter from sun and weather. More info at If you haven't been to Rocky Hill Ranch since before 2022 you will find a completely different trail system with lots of short climbs, switchbacks, berms and technical trail features set in a continuous loop that is easy to follow. Come get some!
