Re: GSL Ranch. check this place out.

I've heard of that place and I think one rider in our group has been. I was at the gas station in Buda near my house one day and there were multiple vehicles with bikes going there. I heard the terrain was mostly mild which was why I haven't been yet.

Getting some challenging trails cut would be great. I'm a city park and north loop at HF kind of guy.

Re: GSL Ranch. check this place out.

I am very interested in going to check out this place. Geese it's in my backyard (San Antonio) and i didn't know about it. I don't have a day planned yet but i would be open to suggestion from anyone who might want to meet up and go riding. I would hate to show up alone. My days off are Sunday's and Tuesdays. I'm a mid level rider on a Dual Sport.

Stay sharp & watch out for hidden baby heads lurking in the grassy trails. Each time I have been there, the trails are so seldomly ridden that they are over grown with weeds in places. I've already seen those hidden mini boulders do in one of unlucky TWTer.

Re: GSL Ranch. check this place out.

They should try to get an Austin Motorsports Association (AMSA) ride day at GSL. It would help them mark and wear in some trails. You usually get 50-100 riders at an invent and it's mostly a sea of orange.

I was just at the McMahon ride day in Smithville on New Years Day.

Re: GSL Ranch. check this place out.

That is what this place really needs. I bet a big group of riders could easily get this place dialed in with some new trails, and sort out all the existing, in just one weekend.

Curious to know if GSL still open and if anyone knows how many miles of single track trail

Re: GSL Ranch. check this place out.

There are plenty of trails to explore. I would expect about 4 to 6 hours to check them all out. It is not as big as Marble Falls Adventure Park but it is pretty awesome.

Re: GSL Ranch. check this place out.

It usually closes during hunting season. I am not a hunter so I don't know when that is. If you call the phone number the recording will usually say.

Re: GSL Ranch. check this place out.

My son and spent they day at GSL Ranch a few weeks back. He was on a CRF70F and I was on a KTM 450EXC. It cost us all of $10 to ride for the day. Kids under 15 are free.

He's only 10 and not too comfortable trail riding, but is WOT on a track. He is right at the edge of needing a larger bike and could have used more ground clearance and suspension travel to handle things like the rocky creek bed.

I enjoyed the trails, and the easy going attitude of the people we met there. Finding the ranch is a bit difficult. You actually have to travel through a ranch to get to GSL's gate. The GPS was right on, but the gate said "Private Property". We were told to drive that road until we hit GSL.

It isn't maintained in any way, but there was plenty of space to ride, just don't chase the livestock. (per rules)

My son enjoys White Knuckle Ranch more, but my 44 y.o. body can't handle that too often.

All in all, we will definately be going back.
