    Not much opp for FR at this park, maybe one short jump/DH run with a ladder drop or two and some gaps. I have decided I'll start working out there to see what I can do. Also, going to start on the Brushy Creek Regional Trail towards the YMCA and Avery Ranch sections, farthest from my hood, but has the most real estate for trail and best elevation profile.

    Update:
    There is a lot more trail out there. Not a whole lot of proper singletrack, but some. I did not check it all out, as I was running and not riding. I would guess there is probably another 2 miles not counting the trail that's actually within the long existing sports complex area and not counting the possibility of trail east of my run.

    It's pretty flat unfortunately and mostly exposed. There is some skinny trail with cover, but not like we want. Obviously, I did not check out the eastern most area of the land, but I think I saw some singletrack heading that way...could have been a game trail - there are tons of game trails.
    By the way, not sure if I mentioned this before, but the blue line in O is not a creek, but the water easement - WIDE clearing for the water line from LGT to Brushy Creek's plant.

    Also, if you refer to the master plan attached above and checkout the park, you'll see they are steadily making progress.
    C - the Park Dept Off is complete
    K - the sprayground has been complete since the summer
    Pretty sure a few others are done as well, but I didn't look around much after my trail run.

    Next time I run there I'll try to make it during office hours and stop by the office to inquire about the next efforts.

    Office wasn't open when I ran there last time either, so I haven't made inquiries. I really don't think the terrain is varied enough to offer much technical riding/entertainment. Whatever is done out there will probably be pretty darn flat, which means it should at least be very fast - what's out there now can be hammered fast. My efforts are elsewhere, closer to home.

    On a similar note, I saw that the proposed Master Plan for Garey Park SPECIFICALLY EXCLUDES MTB trails from the design - that sucks, that park/ranch would be awesome for MTB.

    The singletrack that takes off from the main mulch trail about a ~1/2 mile (its behind a larger pile of mulch), this single track does have a quick little downhill.. nothing that exciting.. but if that track was added to.. and this is the section they have outlined in the "original" plans as where the singletrack for MTB would be.. I would think they could have 3 miles or so of back & forth stuff, which would use that incline to make it interesting.
    Currently, that existing singletrack goes up to the back of the parkside at mayfield ranch subdivision.. about 5 feet from someone's back fence. they also are doing a considerable amount of work on what I believe to be water pipes and such on a back section that is currently super wide with heavy construction equip in there.. which interupts the old singletrack that was out there.. long term that should be made into trail per the plans (google maps current shows it as active trail even, but its not). There is some additional trail though I found (haven't taken it all the way back).. kinda double track stuff beaten by cows/game that goes back across that. That also looked interesting.

    Update here for the few folks interested.

    I had another conversation with the current director. Things are in progress, but I personally don't anticipate trail building access for a "while".

    In the meantime.. for the as-is.. here is a gps of pretty much everything. Its flat and boring, but better than nothing.

    On the map, the bottom part is crushed granite 2m loop. Mid-point is Jim Rogers 2m mulch trail. The top right is the grass corridor (wilco will maintain that by mowing, my understanding) that will eventually connect with lake georgetown (at least they say). The rest is straight as an arrow singletrack 3-4miles on old ranch corridors.. you can find a few sections of twisty, but they don't last long. There are a few more trails than this (another mile at best), but they get close to sensitive areas, so can't ride those, they aren't in the gps. trailsatwilco2014.JPG

    It would be good to see the new trail system being worked. Connecting to the Georgetown trail system would be awesome. I welcome the fast, flat trail system for speed work. It would be a welcome change since most of the trail at Lake Georgetown is rocky and fairly technical. Everytime I ride at Lake Georgetown there is always someone I meet along the trail that has taken a nasty spill. Add in the rain and it is super difficult in a couple of spots. However, I am very happy to have a trail to ride so close to the house.
