    SW Regional Park Master Plan with Mountain Biking Trail

    Maybe not news to many. I know since this park was built there has been talk about MTB there. I contacted Jim about my concerns with the lack of single track MTB in Wilco. While LGT is great, I'd like something more south in the county.

    Per Jim Rodgers, Wilco Parks and Rec Director, "The area at the Southwest Regional Park (see A on the attached) on CR 175
    between Round Rock and Cedar Park will be for MB when built. We will have
    to work around an endangered species area to get to the MB area but I think
    we should be able to have some singletrack trails as you describe."



    I hope that area is not exactly to scale...pretty small. Plus Q and O offer more elevation and the creek.

    He is also interested in hearing more about suggestions for adding bits of singletrack along the existing Brushy Creek Regional Trail.

    Looks pretty pathetic if it's only "A". If they add B, Q, and O; if might be worth going to.

    Agreed, they could certainly add trails within the veloway loop (B) that connect to A.

    I can almost guarantee they are going to want it super beginner-friendly. It will probably turn out to be crushed granite or mulch. Let's hope not, and let's hope they will allow for trails in more than just the "designated area," or it won't be worth it for regulars.
    Try not. Do. Or do not.

    I guess I shouldn't be pessimistic. A short, easy loop will hopefully attract new riders, in which case, they might crave a little more, thus expanding the culture, and requiring more trails in the future.

    There is some singletrack out there. Nothing exciting, but definitely a little bit of singletrack. "O" on the map, the blue dotted line is actually a Brushy Creek MUD water line easement. The single track spurs off the mulch trail that is just past the traffic circle at the entrance. It follow the park property line for the most part, just slightly undulating at a couple of dry creeks. Not much elevation in that area. It meets up with the MUD easement. There are a few dry creeks and retention ponds that could be used for some feature. One of the retention ponds' damn would actually make a nice jump or roller, there is a good slope to it. There is more singletrack out there that I did not check out - I was hiking with my boys, not riding. There are no posted signs or fences encountered when venturing from the mulch to the singletrack. There is a lot more land to the northeast of the easement that I did not check out, looked to have a bit more elevation. Small excavated area near L and M could be a play ground for DJ and trials, but probably only temporary.

    I did run into a HUGE snake out there, looked to be 6 feet or so, slithered quickly away when started and darted up a tree like nothing I've seen before. Probably a rat snake or bull snake...not sure...didn't close enough, it was too high...blotchy with a light underside...brown/gray blotches, light yellow/white belly. Awesome climber.

    Also, there is active development going on, looks like L and M are underway.

    Yep. I hear you, no stranger to that. I might start scouting out a bit more. The so-called 'sensitive' area is no where near where I would suggest trails...in fact the county's mulch trail skirts that area.

    It's more of a Chief trail than a MTB trail, if you know what I mean...

    Not tied any more. But hopefully we will be square again once you post "The Bounce". Everyone wants it, so just make us happy.

    Thread has officially been hi-jacked. Back on topic, we need some FR trail in Gtown, and "The Bounce" for some stoke.
