Motos and bikes only. No walking/hiking/dogs.
Ledges. This place is known for its advanced terrain that is full of ledges to challenge your technical climbing and descending skills.

Need To Know

Emma Long Motocross park is a moto 1st course, so yield to them. Follow the Main Loop signage if you're unfamiliar with the trail as many of the side trails are not authorized.
The direction of the course changes every few years and is currently running counter-clockwise.

Description

Blood, sweat, tears, and broken bike parts.

Not what some of you want to read about a "city park." Fortunately or, unfortunately, depending on your need for gnar, Emma Long Motocross Park is just that. A motocross park that bikers are able to enjoy as well. Just be prepared to encounter some of the most technical, ledge filled terrain you've likely ever encountered. Motos and years of use have created wide, multiple line ledge areas where many will be walking it up or down if they don't want to be another victim of Emma.

History & Background

The park was formed in 1970 when the City of Austin allowed a group of volunteers to create an off road motorcycle park on the steep and rocky northern edge of Emma Long Park.
