Trail shared by Derrick Davis

Deception is a great singletrack option north of Austin.

Description

As one user describes Deception, "it's packed in like a small intestine." Over 6 miles of rocky, tight and twisty turns with lots of switchbacks, and many rough sections that increase in numbers and difficulty the further you run.

Be aware that this trail is shared with mountain bikers and that you stay alert when running this trail.
