I’ll tell this story again. I met Paul Nolan out on Maverick Road in the Big Bend one afternoon. He and a friend were rolling through the sand on their bikes, headed over to Santa Elena canyon, and I was oozing up the road in my truck, headed over to Lajitas for the big race. It was so cool to see something out there on the horizon, and then to realize that it was a pair of cyclists. I stopped to yack at them for a minute or two, and then I went on over to a shower in Lajitas. This place has all kinds of cool features. Lots of challenging trails, all extremely well marked and established; and this is another one that has held up extremely well over the years. People have been racing here for a long time, and there are a lot of folks who come here often to enjoy the ride.

Did this trail a few weeks ago. Started out flat as all can be, tons of flat stuff that is boring. Just hop into the trail at the cattle chute to cut out most of the flat stuff. The back end of it isnt too bad. As for the ranch, real laid back guy was there as the worker, he seems to live in the barn area. There is 3 lakes there and one main on that people camp by. Over all I would go back to this trail with my other half for her to build confidence Edit: The steep uphill or bridges have chicken wire or carpet on them to help with traction

From an intermediate's view: Started out pretty flat for the the first 1/3 and then graduated in difficulty from there. There is one part that has a advanced incline for a hike and bike and the only nerving downhill is gas pass which starts asphalt and changes to rootiness. The technicals, like most in central to east Tx are the stacked roots on marginal uphills. All in all good for beginners, techincal enough for intrmediates and fun zipping for adv. Had a great time.

As a beginner without much exposure to what's out there, this has been the best so far. Very friendly land owner and beautiful tract, well maintained, and much variety and challenge. A beginner is forced to get off and walk (vs fall) in 20% of the ride. I will return frequently.

This trail rocks big time..it's is a great place to ride..no "major" climbs but a couple of hairy downhills "No Gas Pass"..a mix of gravel over red sandy soil..some roots and watch for "Meadow Muffins"..good place to hammer. Trail is one way blue on the right..well marked. Enjoy..
