Fun fun fun and more fun. Hit this for my birthday and wasn't let down. Plenty of tough rocky challenges with a variety of log climbs, fast cruisers, and little wooden launch ramps that just pop out to insure some airtime. Took the 15 miler and almost ran over a snake. Had just enough h2o to get back to the car. Followed that with a dip in the river and climb back to the car to = a perfect day. Peace

The trails are a mix of flat, smooth singletrack and hilly, rocky singletrack. It's a real nice trail system. I think it's under-rated.

The aerobic difficulty is 2-4 depending on the trails you pick. The technical difficulty is 2-4 depending on the trail you pick. I don't think it's the best trail around but I think it deserves a 5 star rating. I'd happily ride there anytime.

The beginners trail is pretty easy. It's flat, twisted singletrack with very few small obstacles. This is where I take new mountain bikers or go for an occasional fast, easy ride.

The intermediate trails are much more difficult. Lots of short, steep hills and numerous obstacles. There are a number of obstacles I don't care to ever try, but most of it is ridable by and intermediate rider.

The advanced/race loop mostly adds a few more intermediate miles.

Pick a route and follow the signs.

An excellent trail with plenty of variety. Good for beginners and challenging fast/technical for better riders. The local club, Austin Ridge Riders, opened up fresh trail for the April 5th TMBRA race. I found the trail technically challenging when trying to "clear" the ledges/descents at race pace. Although the older sections were eroded and rocky, the newer sections had good ground cover.

Rode the 10 mile expert loop on March 17, 2008 in preparation for the upcoming TMBRA race in April...Was in shock to how little bit of climbing was on this loop...especially being in the rugged hill country..its seems like your going back and forth across the hills with a lot of big rocks to ride over..there are some tight rocky singletrack areas too...there were about 4 uphill rock ledge climbs that were about 3 to 5 feet in height...it was better to dismount than to attempt to ride over them, especially after i crashed and banged my front big chainring on the large boulders (rocks)....most of the trail was smooth dirt and it seemed like a lot of the trail was fast downhill..they have one section which is a long fast downhill ride...the double diamond expert area was basically a little ditch with large rocks..if you pick the right line its no big deal to ride it....like i said earlier, very little climbing for the hill country...the pedelnales river runs through the ranch and is beautiful...the water is emerald green...pretty place to ride..wish i lived in the hill country...take care and go enjoy the ride.

Wow! What a layout...something for everyone. The trails are unbelievably long (18-20 miles), have some drops, have some good climbs, fair ramp jumps, lots of twists and turns, good all-out balls to the wall high speed areas, and some nice scenery. Trails are marked well and are in good shape...be very, very careful of the double black diamond trails - i.e. just pick up you bike and hike, especially back by the river. Interesting note - all of the Cedar has been cleared, which is a refreshing change of terrain.

This trail is absolutely SWEET!!!! It's got everything for everybody, fast straight, twisty hardpack, to technical slowgoing rocks and roots. It's got jumps, harpin turns (with burms) and everything else to keep you smiling. I don't know why others are bashing this trail. I personally think it rocks. The trail builders did a fantastic job of putting a lot of trail, in a relatively small area. Granted, the trail does double back on itself a lot, but if you want a long, fast, fun ride, Reimers is the place to get it.

The trail was NOT designed and built by the Austin Ridge Riders, despite what someone alleges below. Volunteers from Austin's mountain bike community built it and maintain it. The double black diamond section is constantly being expanded and quite technical. This piece of land is becoming a Travis County park in the near future, and the status of the trail is uncertain. Ride it while you can.

This trail is decent. I ride it because it is close to where I live. I like that there is a 13 or so mile option. The trail seems like it was designed by a motorcycle rider though, because it zigzags across the uphills and downhills rather than giving you the good long climbs and highspeed downhills that it is capable of offering. Another bummer is that everytime you start to get your momentum going you have to come to a complete stop for a hairpin turn. Still, like I said. It's a decent ride. It's too bad that 95% of the hillcountry is privately owned so that you can't take advantage of it on a mountain bike. Fortunately there are some places that you can access for the usual 5 bucks or so.

Like the reviewer below said, you ride 20ft in one direction, and then make a sharp turn and ride right back to where you came from. Then repeat. There is no reason for it except to make it seem longer. And the way they cut the trails around the only hill it's not a challenging climb or downhill either. The Austin Ridge Riders supposedly designed the trail. I think they need to do some more riding outside of TX to get a better idea of how to build trails and how they should flow. There were a couple of small dropoffs which were cool, few jumps which were fun, and the double diamond parts were good if you like slow technical stuff.

Customer Service

Just follow the signs - you can't get lost.
