North America's first year round bike park that got a new lift just for mountain biking, and it just so happens to be in the great state of TEXAS! This bike park is new and has a gamut of trails to offer everyone. The most effort went into the green trail for opening day and has some great blue trails as well as a black and a double black for all the extreme mountain bikers out there. More trails are on the way!
You can run the perimeter trail, Charlotte's Web, or run up and down the uphill/hiking trail.
Popular non-peak times are any time other than summer. In the summer, it is hot! Plan on competing with fishing and family getaways during the summer. If you do go in the summer, the best is to ride the chair in the a.m., have some mid-day fun with the family in the water sports arena, then make your way in for an afternoon ride. Or just start drinking beer in the afternoon and enjoy life with the family. Whichever you do, it'll be a good time. Ideal time is to visit any other time than the summer, because it's no secret that it is HOT in Texas between late May and mid September.
Camping & Lodging
There is camping $10 per parking space. If you're pulling a small camper it'll be $20 p/night because you'd be taking up two spaces. Otherwise, there is primitive camping at $10 p/night per space. Otherwise, there is great lodging at Thunderbird Lodge which is on-site with A/C and amazing amenities like wifi, cable, access to the public pool, paddle-boarding, etc.
Food & Drink
There are no food or drink establishments on-site. The closest and best options are the HEB in Burnet. If you're looking for the best burger of your life, don't hesitate to visit Bill's Burger's and Wings. If you're looking for great Mexican food, visit 'EL Rancho. If you're looking for a good ol' Texas beast of a meal that is downright some southern home cooking, look no further than Mama's home cooking. If you want some authentic BBQ, the Shack is is where it's at. The food in Burnet is nothing less than amazing!
Swing by the Thunderbird lodge to rent paddle-boards or a pontoon boat. Go check out the water falls or an island of your choice out on the lake. Go fishing off the dock or a mountain hike with the family.
