Camp Eagle is quite a drive to put it mildly. At a good clip we made it from central Austin to the trail in ~3 hours. For a 6 hour round trip, that is a bit much for a single day. However, they do have camping on site, so making a weekend out of it is not out of the question.

When we were out there, the trail was real muddy. To the point of almost being unrideable. Normally we would not have ridden something that muddy, but the folks there didn't seem to care.

The trails are very well marked, however, we managed to do the south portion backwards (our mistake).


Location: Way out west, past Fredericksburg, north of Kerrville and south of Junction.
