This is a trail about an hour north of Austin that has a lot of fun for people willing to make the trek up there. The trail feels similar to some of the unnamed trails in Austin that have sweeping turns, roller coasters, switchbacks and other features that make for a fun ride.

There are plenty of different options out there on the trails, we only hit a part of it and managed a 16-mile ride (out and back).


Location: Harker Heights, TX


Directions: Take I-35 north and get of on I-14 headed west. Then Take FM2410 west to Comanche Gap road and follow that all the way into the park.
