Overview
A recurring UCI race venue, Flat Creek Crossing Ranch is a privately owned property that is only open on designated days. The trail has everything you could hope for in an XC route, including a couple of killer climbs, nice technical features and descents and fantastic flow.
Need To Know
Private land and is only open on designated days! Be sure to check before making the drive!
Description
You'll start out on a nice warm up loop that is about a mile.

The trail drops into some tight and fast singletrack into a decent descent. Once you hit the bottom though, be ready for a leg and lung busting climb.

Reach the top of the hill and open the throttle, you're in for some fantastic flowy trails including some rock gardens and creek crossings.

The trail is mostly shaded so you can get out of the unrelenting Texas sun, but do be sure to bring plenty of water as the facilities may or may not be open on that particular day.
