Mary Moore Searight park is on the south side of Austin. It is a nice little neighborhood park that is also connected to the South Austin Trail Network, so not only is it a destination to go and ride, but it offers you the opportunity to access a huge range of trails. As a base for exploration the park is easily accessible and offers a variety of easier trails for the beginner with access to more challenging features as you move out, further away from the park.

Post Ride Beer: This is an easy trail so a Modelo or a Lone Star is probably your best bet. That is what the disk golf guys were drinking.
