Technical trail at a motorcycle park
Emma Long Park offers one of the most technically challenging rides in the area. It is a very tough ride. (There is a short beginner's loop however.) There isn't a lot of climbing here, but you will still get a good workout. Bouncing over the rocks and bolders as the trail twists and turns around the trees and cliffs. No real opportunities to gain speed on the downhill as they remain very twisty and technical. This park is a motorcycle park so expect some noise.
How to get there:
From Austin, take I-35 North to FM 2222 west of Loop 360 to a stop light. Take a left here up City Park Road. After a few miles of winding along City Park Road, take a left onto Oak Shores Road (follow the big "motorcycle trails" sign). The parking lot will be on the left.
