Review

Intro

Check out Muleshoe Bend for a good, intermediate mountain bike trail that's perfect for a quick loop or an extended session. The main loop is about 7 miles of hardpack dirt and rock singletrack, with some sandy sections for good measure. 

What Makes It Great

There are also a few extra miles of side trails that will get you to about 10 miles total.  Muleshoe Bend is shady, so it's a smart choice on hot, sunny days. The corners tend to be dry and loose, so don't wash out and wind up in the brush: Snake sightings are rare but possible.  There's a $5-per-rider day use fee, and the recreation area is right on Lake Travis -- perfect for a post-ride dip to cool down!

Who is Going to Love It

Intermediates will find the trail a good match for their skills while experts will have a good time hammering the trail -- it's not all that technical. Stronger riders will have no problem fitting in two loops here. 

Directions, Parking, & Regulations

The day use fee is $5. The address for the park is 2820 County Rd. 414Spicewood, TX 78669.
