I have ridden here in the dead of winter, and I have hit the trails here when it was so hot you could suck a PowerBar right out of the wrapper. I had fun both times. There isn’t another place around quite like this exotic game preserve. Not because of its technical impact or scenic beauty—the trails here actually fall somewhere in the middle of the road for the Texas Hill Country. I just love it ’cause I know the people here, the guys who lead the rides, and you never know what you’ll see. You get to do stuff here that none of the hoards in their minivans ever dream of. There are over ten miles of single-track, rocky and somewhat technical, that you get to ride if you take a mountain bike tour. The guides will show you things the average tourist never gets a sniff of.

I've ridden this trail several times and love coming back. I'm a little surprised by the "Easy" ranking. I suppose anyone can get around it but, if you ride it fast and hard, it'll test you. Lots of rocks and roots and Gas Gulch would be pretty intimidating to a beginner (there is a way around). There are primitive campsites for an additional couple of bucks and the owners are very hospitable. Unless, there's a scheduled event, they close the trail if it gets too wet.

The trail was awesome. Kind of wet but very ridable. Nice facility and staff. Great for a beginner with some real fun climbs and descents. Owe, pay attention to the signs, SLOW. You'll know what I am talking about.
