Family Friendly The trail is not too difficult; it's one-way and hard to get lost and there is camping.

Description

Bluff Creek Ranch, located in the rolling hills 60 miles east of Austin, is a working cattle ranch that has the distinction of being the first Mountain Bike Ranch in Texas. There are 8 miles of well shaded, rolling, singletrack trails that wind through hardwoods and pines. Runners also are encouraged to try out our facilities which include camping, fishing, swimming, and picnicking, with full bath facilities.

We also sell All Natural Texas Longhorn Beef that is antibiotic and hormone free. Check-in at the ranch is open from sunrise until 10:00 pm, and the trails are open 24 hours for campers.

Cash or check are accepted. $10 for all day. $15 to camp. Must sign waiver.
