A fun, well-planned, beautiful loop of singletrack with only moderate traffic, Muleshoe Recreation Area is a great place for bikers looking for a place to either crank out a few quick laps or spend a whole weekend. Situated just outside Austin’s city limits, the trail traverses the tree-covered hills along the shore of Lake Travis, passing plentiful camping facilities and enough shoreline for a refreshing post-ride dip. Tread: Singletrack.

I've ridden this many times. It was the first trail I rode with my mountain bike and one I keep in the rotation today 4 years later. It's fast, fun and as challenging as you want to make it. Ride all of the extra credit loops for a longer tougher ride. Bring a lunch and make a day of it. Cool off mid ride on the lake and enjoy the trail.

Awesome trail for mountain biking, well worth the drive!! Since I'm relatively new to the sport, there are some tough spots where I had to carry my bike. Also, bring plenty of water, even under the tree cover it gets hot & the trail doesn't cross any streams to cool off in.
