    Just above beginner level. It's a feature of the trail. One that I think could use a little maintenance attention.

    I haven't... But thought I'd read somewhere that the trail was fairly easy... So I thought your comment was just a continuation of suggesting I go ride easy trails.

    Sorry, gunshy I guess.

    Look folks... I just saw something that caught my attention and thought I'd bring it up. Why this means some people are required to get their knickers in a twist I'm not sure... Maybe it's an Austin mountain biker machismo thing.

    But straight up... I just threw it out there to see if anyone wants to do something about it.

    Do something... Don't do something... Ride it... Don't ride it... That's up to the individual.

    The rest of the stuff... That's like me lighting a candle and sitting back to watch what moths will come to it.

    Strava was a joke. You asked who made me king, I said Stravaaaaa!

    Lakeway was also tongue in cheek.

    He said build a zig zag up the hill. If you had been to Lakeway you would understand. There is nothing easy about lakeway. Lakeway is an ass kicker and has about 50 switchbacks that go up and over several climbs, hence zig zag. Its far more interesting than anything SATN has to offer, but you might throw up if you tried to ride it right now in the heat. Maybe at 7 a.m. if you would like to go check it out. On a map it looks like a straight line zoomed out. Its 50 switchbacks and then a lollipop ridge ride with amazing views of the hill country, little boxes on the hillside, and the lake. The entry has a nice official bathroom facility with a camelback filler

    I see your point here. Its a little more blown out than the surrounding trail. Its fall line and water fills into the creek there. Any work is likely to get washed away.

    For me personally, its coming in nicely. I like a like choppy gnar here and there. If you're dropping into the creek from either side, you can usually huck over most of the bad stuff and catch the transition for a nice speed boost.

    So you're a little above beginner level then?

    New trail looks good

    But even if you have to take your bike in your car it's worth it to check it all out. I'm not sure of the total mileage of trail available, but it's at least 10 miles.
    It looks good, I'm guessing you made the trail around the trestle? Someone mowed too. Much thanks for that.

    Rode two sections of the trail behind Bowie HS that are new to me. One was somewhat along the creek for a part and had a couple areas that are pretty expert level – or near to in my book. Would love to go see people ride there one day, maybe take some photos.

    The other section is the trail section to the lower left. Kind of rocky, but man were there lots of horse flys. No idea why, but will be avoiding that area till cooler days come.

    Also rode a section in Beuerle, where some fairly new trail with jumps has been cut.

    the "expert level" area you mentioned is probably Bowie Stonewall. relatively new section that's between the Veloway and the creek. pretty difficult stuff, to be sure. I don't think I have cleaned the whole thing in one try yet.

    the other section has a lot of chunk indeed. it's hard to ride, but I avoid it on most rides because of said horseflies. they come back every year and will bite you right through your lycra.

    My 60+ mile rides were definitely not on an e-bike. I have been enjoying all that south Austin has to offer!
