“A short downhill ride leading into the larger Canyonlands Trail System...keep your speed in check on this shared trail.”
— Donovan Acker
This is fun for easy exploring. There's convenient parking and it's just a few minutes from family-friendly food spots for post-ride grubbing (Torchy's Tacos, Mod Pizza).
You’ll be sharing the trails with the occasional hiker or trail runner... so keep an eye out!
A short moderate trail, this is the main route from the trailhead that leads into the wider set of Canyonlands trails/rides. The trail has a mild descent all the way to its end point. At the bottom of this trail, you can connect to the High Trail
where there is a bathroom and free cold purified water dispenser.
The main access point into all the trails and rides in this system is the trailhead of the Trophy Trail, located on Trophy Drive just across from the Lakeway Swim Center.
There is a large trailhead billboard with a large trail system map visibly obvious from the street. Take the Trophy Trail starting from the point just to the right of the trailhead billboard where you'll see the "Friends of Lakeway" wooden sign hanging at the start. From that point on, all trail crossings/connections are clearly marked with signposts.
The local mountain biking club rides here frequently. They are called L.A.M.E (Lakeway Area Mountain Bike Enthusiasts). Check out their Facebook page
