Ride your bike in LCRA parks

Ride your bike among fields of bluebonnets at Muleshoe Bend Recreation Area.

 

Load up your bike and get outdoors at an LCRA park. Ten LCRA parks and recreation areas offer miles of multi-use trails through diverse and beautiful scenery.

Around Lake Travis, cyclists can ride along fields of wildflowers at Turkey Bend and Muleshoe Bend recreation areas. Muleshoe Bend has more than six miles of mountain bike trails suitable for all experience levels. At Pace Bend Park, bicycle riders can work up a sweat along the trails and then take a dip in Lake Travis.

In Bastrop County, a 4.5-mile multi-use trail between North Shore and South Shore parks offers cyclists a workout and a ride through beautiful countryside.

East of La Grange, mountain bikers can ride along the shores of Lake Fayette at Oak Thicket Park. A three-mile multi-use trail connects Oak Thicket and Park Prairie parks. Oak Thicket offers overnight accommodations, too, in furnished cabins, screened shelters and RV and tent sites.
