Nice rolling hills with a few good climbs in a row at the front with fat chuck's demise
capping the last climb in the set. Off the lip is a nice two wheel roller coaster through
the rolling hills and creek surrounded by the piney woods. There are lots of combinations
of long gradual climbs and the accompanying downhills to switch backing up and down
the creek. Nice ride for a change of pace.
How to get there:
From Austin take I-35 South to Hwy 71. Go east on 71 towards Bastrop. Continue through Bastrop to Smithville Texas. Take the loop 230 exit and then turn left under 71, at this point you'll be on FM 153. Go 2.3 miles on FM153, you'll see the gate on the left. (There are some old bikes hanging on a pine gate.)
$6 a day to ride and camping is also available.
