Long, long lines and wide open terrain will make you feel like you’ve got the entire Hill Country at your disposal. Flat Rock’s 18+ miles of trail offer serious climbs and blazing descents in a gorgeous setting for a ride that captures the spirit of true cross-country. There are some pretty good technical challenges out here, but they definitely play second fiddle to the overall scope of the ride, which comprises two sprawling loops totaling more than 18 miles that’ll have you feeling like you’ve died and gone to singletrack heaven. Tread: Mostly singletrack, very little jeep road.

This place is a must ride for anyone within driving distance! Although I wouldn’t recommend it for beginners, intermediate and advanced riders will love it! Packed with switchbacks, nice climbs and sweet descents to match, Flat Rock Ranch is a singletrack lover’s playground…just watch out for the cacti and prickly bushes. The Lower Loop puts things into perspective early on by butting you side-by-side with sheer drop-offs as the trail winds around them. Stay focused or you might end up in a 5-foot wash-out as one in our group did. Sprained ankles suck for a mtb’r. Pipeline Hill, with its 1900ft elevation, makes for a great spot to take a break and a few scenic photos overlooking the ranch. Evilworm is a twisted little section of downhill that will get the first-time rider nervous by its name alone. Shortly after Evilworm is a wicked downhill section that you can gain some nice speed on. Just be careful as the trail is somewhat of a rut and a right pedal too low will catch the side – trust me, I know. Although I must say, that was my sweetest 10 ft Superman impression to date and the reason I will continue to always wear a helmet.
