This setting is as pure Texas Hill Country as you’re gonna find. Sharp inclines and thorny vegetation abound on the many miles of trail in this state park, offering more space for exploration than you can likely cover in any given weekend. The trails, numerous and mazelike as they are, are very well marked and fairly well maintained. Tread: Mix of singletrack and doubletrack.

Many Trails to be ridden out here, great placew to go camping. I only spent the day out here and wish I had nmore time to explore. The trails that I got to ride ranged from extremely difficult to easy. It was fun exploring and a great place to push yourself to the limits.
