This place is great...seriously. For most folks coming from San Antonio or Austin it's about a 2 hour drive. I am blessed in that I live up towards Kerrville, so it's barely an hour for me. Either way, it's still worth the drive.
I Spent the first hour on the doubletrack in the front that borders the river. Nothing to technical or steep at all...pretty benign actually, but man it's fun to haul ass on this section. The back country is tougher, with a few fairly steep climbs and descents. I didn't find the ride "technical", and I am a total newbie....but a few of the climbs were pretty stout. Scenery is gorgeous....place is freakin' HUGE, and even better....NOBODY was there. I saw not one other soul on the trail, and only 2 RV's parked in the hookup area. I asked the clerk at the desk if this was because of the Christmas Holiday. She replied "No, it's usually fairly dead around here, because Junction is not on the way to or from anywhere" For $4.00 admission and over 20 miles of trails with virtually zero traffic....this place is a real gem.
