“Far Reaches Trail is the only GCSNA Backcounty trail not connected to Joe Johnston.”
— Leonard Box
Far Reaches Trail begins from Recharge Trail
as a smooth and flowing singletrack. That being said, this does not last for long, as the rock ledges and gardens begin quite quickly. Following this, the route is almost entirely uphill. Some of the ledges can be challenging, but all are doable.
Be aware of chainring bashing and pedal strikes, you'll see the scars on the rocks from previous riders. Coming from Sendero Balcones
, the trail is almost entirely downhill. In this direction, the trail is not as challenging.
