Check out our favorite Central Texas Mountain Bike Trails
Miles of sweet well-groomed trails wind through shady trees - great for learning and gorgeous for all skill levels! The Kerrville-Shreiner Park is located along the beautiful Guadalupe River, about a 2 hour drive from Austin. Choose from challenging climbs with awesome vistas and technical descents, or enjoy easy flowing trails where the trees open up to hill country views, or roll along miles of the paved riverside path, or stay a while and explore it all! They have nice camping and cabin options, and day or annual passes available.
Spider Mountain Bike Park
Located on the banks of Lake Buchanan just 60 miles northwest of Austin, Spider Mountain is home to Texas’ first and only lift-served mountain bike park. From the top, you have the choice of nine trails ranging from beginner to expert to bring you back to the bottom of the lift.
Reveille Peak Ranch
Just an hour's drive from Austin, and right down the road from Spider Mountain is the spectacular Reveille Peak Ranch. They have almost 100K of trails, including 15 miles of hand-cut single track and a 25-mile non-intersecting endurance loop. Reveille also has a super D, pump track, spectacular jumps, and a flow track/gravity trail. Because of their granite/gneiss composition, the trails drain water extremely fast and are always good to go even right after rain. Spring rains leave crystal clear pools that reflect the skies, and wildflower season will blow your mind.
*Please be mindful to leash dogs when cows are around since this is also an active cattle ranch.
