Mountain Bike Trails
Cameron Park has a strong reputation throughout Texas for its mountain bike trails. You can find some easy trails, but riders come from Austin and Dallas to test their skills on the technically challenge courses.

Don't just take our word for it. According to, "The trails are well-developed and well-maintained. If you like to climb, you will love Cameron Park. If you hate to climb, you will respect it. The payoff for a lot of the climbing is some phenomenal downhill runs. The trails are designated with green, blue and black markings, just like a ski slope. Someone has obviously spent a lot of time making these trails into some of the best biking in the central Texas area."

Check out the local water parks.  Hawaiian Falls Water Park  and the BSR Cable Park.
