Re: GSL Ranch. check this place out.

5 broken ribs & a collar bone! Dang yall, the Hawkman is one tough dude. He helped me load his bike in the truck with only a grown or two. (No the bike didnt have as much as a scratch on it.) Then he drove himself off to the hospital. I still feel guilty somehow that you ended up in such a bad way. Hope my new riding friend makes a fast & full recovery. We are all rooting for you.

Re: GSL Ranch. check this place out.

Going to try to head out there today with a couple of younger cousins, to hopefully give them the off-road fever. Taking a couple ATVs and the TTR230 this time.

Re: GSL Ranch. check this place out.

Well, I saw the ortho today. I am well enough to go back to work after three weeks but it looks like three months minimum before I can ride again. I miss it already.

Glad to hear you are on the mend Hawkman. Sorry you won't be able to ride for the rest of the winter.

Re: GSL Ranch. check this place out.

So is this place always open or do you have to set up with owner? From Videos this place looks doable on a klr 650 . I just so happen to have one that needs to break its cherry on the dirt!

Wouldn't hurt to touch base with the owner before you haul. He is usually there, but not always. As for the KLR, on some of the trails... it could prove a little cumbersome. A lot depends on your riding skill, and off road comfort level. You will be riding on occasional baby heads and such. I was really hoping to get back out there during the winter months and pioneer some more trails through that rocky woods section. But my next job will have me gone until around mid April. Seems like we could thread a good bit more technical trail through there, if anyone felt like trying to mess with it. This area looks like it could offer up some pretty good Hidden Falls style technical single track riding.

Re: GSL Ranch. check this place out.

Since a couple of riders checked this place out last week, I thought I would re-read the thread.
Maybe visit when it gets cooler. Camping would be the way to go since it's a little ways from Austin.

Re: GSL Ranch. check this place out.

This place has some really good potential. Very friendly amenable former rider land owner, great prices, peaceful country camping, and a handful of seldomly ridden trails. Just needs a bunch of us to show up in mass to layout and cut some more technical trails that flow around some of the more challenging terrain features, then ride 'em in good. Excellent primitive group camp & huddle up spot. Almost always have the place to yourself.

Re: GSL Ranch. check this place out.

Spoke to Sam today. The ranch is open for riding but starting October 1, the riding hours will be 9a - 4p to accommodate the hunters. Camping will still be allowed during hunting season.

I may try to sneak out there this weekend sometime. I'll post up if it happens.

Re: GSL Ranch. check this place out.

Yes, it is still going.
My daughter and I camped out there in the beginning of December. We got there late on a Saturday afternoon but couldn't ride because it was after 4 during hunting season. We woke up Sunday and by 10am there were already folks coming in with bikes & quads. It turned out to be a beautiful day and in all I would say there were over 2 dozen riders of all ages.

It is a fun, friendly, inexpensive place with lots of trails... we weren't able to explore them all in just one day. We will be going back.
