Thanks for the advice. I have hooked up with a few of the Austin trials guys once, and they had great advice for me. And whenever I can I come up to Emma with the trials bike to play.

I haven't ridded an XR400 yet, but I did have an XR250 a couple of years ago. I loved that bike.

Hidden Falls is a great place. There are several others in the area, you have Powell Ranch just outside of Austin and Zars down in Floresville

Zars and Powell are both nice changes as they are both less rocky, neither one is as large as Hidden Falls though

Home again, sore as a fool can be. What a blast, haven't ridden tight technical rocky stuff like that in a LOT of years. Only one bobble when I was tired on one of the rock ledges, forgot how little flywheel weight the Husky has and let it stall.

Overall I would absolutely go back, but I am looking forward to other riding areas with a few less rocks.

Can I go this park with 690 enduro r? It's not gonna be too heavy?
There is nothing in my mind you could not do there on a 690 given either the skill, dumb luck or just no worries about throwing it down a rock incline.

I just would pick a better tool for the job myself, I love the place on either of my 250s

I have only been there once a few weeks ago to pre ride the new Husky. There is plenty of single track to really get get to know your new 690 or trails that are easy compared to big bend. Take her, test her, get to know her :)

I will be back with my 500, but I don't see the point in taking the Africa Twin there.

Thinking of heading out to HF on Friday with my kids. They are out of school and I am off work. It's a long haul for one day but I'm afraid everything else will be closed or a mud fest.

Anybody else up for some single track?

It was a long day but worth the trip. We rode a lot of the roads a few atv trails as a family. Johnny L. showed up and took Colton and I down some single track. We will definitely be back.

I know this is both late already and last minute but I am going to load up and take the Husky out for a spin at HF this morning. Should be a low dust day :)

Rode HF for the first time this weekend. Sunday in August the place was almost deserted despite mild-ish temps (was about 82 in the morning, 90 when we left mid afternoon).

I really enjoyed it, fun mix of trails. Fast and open, tight and tough, sandy, rocky. Singletrack stuff was nice that it's well marked and directional, and no worries about coming around a corner and some gigantic SxS blocking the trail. We did most of the South Loop singletrack, and a fair bit of the North Loop. The North one is definitely a little tougher. The ATV and jeep trails are a nice diversion if you want to take it easy for a bit, even the higher difficulty rated trails shouldn't be overly challenging for a moderately experienced rider.

Staff was friendly and helpful to us newbies. The harder rated ATV trails and the singletrack was decently challenging, but no crazy hurt-yourself stuff. The few truly difficult sections all had bailouts or bypasses, and generally a warning sign beforehand.

I can see the place getting pricey quick if you want to bring friends or make a weekend out of it though. They have a lot of nice accommodations, but their prices for camping, cabins, and rentals certainly reflect that.

Think I'll be back this sunday 8/20, fairly early, probably by 8 or so. Have a couple buddies on bikes and another bringing their jeep. I'll have a white focus towing a 500EXC and my Xtrainer.

Sam lives !! You can come to EL and join me too. Bring the trials bike also. Make a day of it.
He lives, I got him out to Powell a couple of months ago. Sam, Carl and I are thinking about Powell this coming Saturday this should give you enough time to find the KTM in the back of the garage:lol2:

Should have posted up earlier - but I’m riding in HF this weekend. I’m staying in town and will be headed there in about an hour or so and plan on doing the same tomorrow. In a blue F150 riding a KTM 500 EXC.

Getting some elevation and rock training for prep to an Ouray ride in Sept. Not much of either around Houston.

If anyone wants to hook up you can ping me at 7 one 3. 8 one 9 - seven 4 seven 4.

Planning on a long Hidden Falls weekend, Nov 9-11. Will be camping as it will be November.

Shouldn't be hard to recognize me out there. I'll be doing my best to tick off all the boxes on your idiot list. I'll even try to add to it, because that's just how excited I am to have my favorite (and only) 300 finally running and being on it again after way too many months hiatus.

Didn't do HF. Did Emma Long instead. Too cold for camping.

Been a long time. Months. Had to knock off a lot of rust from my head. Gotta ride more often!

Last time was too hot to camp, now it's too cold? What's your month Goldilocks? LOL

Post up next time, I'm overdue for a TX ride. Seems all my riding is out of state anymore.

Had a tentative adv bike ride planned that weekend but might be willing to change. JMZ needs to get some shine scuffed off that new 500 anyway. I better get busy though, both my smokers need some maintenance and wear items replaced after 5 days of riding in OK/AR.
