Overview

This ride will give you your money's worth as it includes the original Big Loop and a few Extra Credit sections to add mileage. With nearly 1400 feet of elevation, it will provide a solid workout.

The route is a favorite of seasoned riders at Rocky Hill Ranch and is something to aim for by those new to the area.

Description

This ride has its ups and downs as you get a grand tour of arguably some of the best riding on the property.

Just keep telling yourself that it is all downhill from here, even as you face another short climb as you make your way round.

This route was provided by Austin Bike, who suggests having a Fat Tire Ale or a cold Shiner or two once back to the parking lot.

First time at Rocky hill ranch, it's very rocky! very nice trails, well marked. Nice change of pace from other central Texas trails. 16mi — 1h 45m
