CTOR, Great place to ride and camp

When going to Crooked Creek didn't work out, JT and I headed to Central Texas Off Road near Salado.

Our 2nd time here and I enjoyed it quite a bit.

The parking/camping area


Father and son enjoying Loop 3

Re: CTOR, Great place to ride and camp

Probably been 10 years since I went there, you know how many miles of trail they have now?

There are 4 marked loops, the longest is 9miles. I guess about 20 miles for the 4 loops. But, you can ride off the loops and there are lots of short side sections. Its easy to get turned around.

Interesting, closer than the forest. I might just give it a try in coming weeks.

Are you sure it's closer? Pretty far north.

Possibly but too far for a day ride so would need to make it a weekend stay. 450 miles roundtrip, the forest is only 130 miles roundtrip for me.

I had already Googled it that's why I questioned your distance as map fresh in my head. I'm still showing SHNF being 10 miles closer to La Grange than CTOR.

That is in addition to daily ride fees or included?

Crooked Creek Cycle Park is closed. Their website is still working and it says they are closed.

Ropeburn, what website are you looking at?

When would you and SB try to go? Maybe we could get a group together.

Re: CTOR, Great place to ride and camp

Other than my weekly beekeeping, my schedule is opening up until the end of July. The 4th will likely be crowded, but I'm open to any weekend after this one, maybe even during the week. I'd like to get together and ride again. I think that last time was Bastrop.

SB, what do you say?

Re: CTOR, Great place to ride and camp

Not many weekends until October or after. Only Jul-29 and Aug-12 are open.

JT, reading again your description of the trails wondering if it's big enough for two days of riding without just doing the same stuff over and over?
