    Walnuts is merely a "no driving required" destination on some weekends when i leave the 78611.
    more time on the bike & less time driving to destination.

    I'm planning on riding to Walnut from Cedar Park in the morning. Please post up if it gets too wet to ride. Thanks.

    We're headed out to Warda today ahead of next week's race. Called this morning at 9:30.
    "How much rain did you get yesterday?"
    "1 inch. People are out riding right now. Should be perfect by about noon"
    We're going, but I'm skeptical. Parts of that place can be a total mud/clay fest when it rains, but maybe it will be OK

    It was so dry last time I was out there (a few weeks ago) that I doubt 1" of rain will hang around for long.

    OK, so it was pretty amazing as it was drying this afternoon. It is really a different place than back in the day. The front area is twisty and flowy, with some whoops into a streambed, and after you go down Gas Pass, there is some pretty challenging stuff, hairpin turns/swithbacks here and there, with some steep downs & ups + side-slope trails where it pays to pay attention.

    I'll toss in my 2c before you make the drive to Warda/Bluff Creek Ranch. The twisty first section is fun, but is pretty much flat. The whoops are few and pretty minor. That first section is almost 3 miles long. Gas Pass is the most fun, but very short (1/2 mile?). The BMX/Roller Coaster area is also fun, but again fairly short. To me, other than that, the rest of the trail is not exciting. Lots of straight, open trail around hay fields.

    Personally, if I am able to make that much of a drive, I'm not going to Bluff Creek. I'd hit any number of other places first, including Pace Bend, Reimers, Muleshoe, Rocky Hill or Beuscher, Reviellle, even Cameron Park in Waco or Flat Creek in Comfort.

    Race video takes the absolute 'best' sections of the entire trail into a short edit: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4bWbnVWf81Y

    Full lap video can give you a taste of the whole thing: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FWYmP9j9jS4

    IMHO, you have lots better riding options if you're willing to drive that far.

    Yep, there are better places to ride if you drive a ways, but it's fun occasionally. We like RV camping out there on non-race weekends. It's quiet, and there are a lot of good roads to ride gravel on close to the ranch. Add in a loop or two at the ranch and it makes a good weekend

    Looks like we are due to be hosed ~ 9 pm. Could be intense in various areas. Or not.
