Reveille Peak Ranch is north and west of Austin, out near Burnet, TX. The trail is granite which is significantly different from the limestone that you encounter in Austin. There are places where you cannot believe that you can actually grip the rock when you climb, but, amazingly, your tire will "stick" to the granite and climbing is easy. At least that part.

There are plenty of different obstacles and plenty of variance in the trail. Everything from sandy jeep roads to highly technical trail features that only the bravest will tackle. We did not have any flats on our ride, but rumor has it that chances are much higher here; the combination of newer trail and cactus leave you with greater probability.

The pavilion has a view of the small lake and there are showers along with a host of other amenities that one typically does not find on an MTB trail.
