    Of the places very close (30 min) to SA, I've only been to Government Canyon. It had quite a lot of everything. But I'd also like to hear from the SA area folks. What are the real goods? Is G'ment Canyon it? Both Trailforks and Project MTB come up empty with not much outside of that.

    Thanks for the feedback, natas1321.

    I've been to Flat Rock Ranch a ton. I love it. At about 1 hour from SA, I'd agree that it is likely the best that the greater area has to offer. It's a great mix of fast/flow and tech. Unfortunately they're closed to biking until Jan 1 because of hunting.

    Hill Country Natural Area has a ton of potential, and it is a beautiful area roughly 1.5 hours from SA. I've only been once, but I'm unlikely to go back any time soon. It was maybe my least favorite Texas trail stem yet. It was maybe 30% singletrack with the rest being wide doubletrack. The singletrack it does have is mostly ditches, as I recall. And while it has some great elevation gain, its steep climbs are all fall line trails with impossible loose rock as the trail surface. Same with downhills. I think it would make for a great hike, but not my favorite for biking.

    I haven't been to Madrone yet. Also about 1 hour from SA. I've heard good things, but at only 7-8 miles long, it has been low on my priority list. I was planning to hit it a couple of weeks ago as part of a Purgatory Creek/Madrone Bang-Bang. But Madrone was closed for hunting at that time. It's tough to find info though, and I'm not sure when it opens back up.
