If you’re a mountain biker or trail runner, Reveille Peak Ranch is a spot you don’t want to miss. Less than an hour drive from the Lake Travis area is where you’ll find some of the best mapped trails in the area. It’s close enough to make it a quick day trip or you can bring the camping gear for a weekend or more. Once you go, it’s very likely that you will be back for more.
There are two options for getting there depending on which side of the Lake Travis area you’re coming from. One option is to travel on 183 north up to 29 and pass through Liberty Hill on your way to Burnet. The other way, and possibly a little bit more scenic, is the Hwy 71 route through Marble Falls. Reveille Peak Ranch is located just off 29 and 2341. You won’t see any large signage guiding you in, so check out a map or plug the address into a GPS.
A friend has been raving about mountain biking at this place for years and I didn’t have a chance to make it out until recently. After a Saturday spent exploring the trails, I’m kicking myself for not making it out sooner.
