    Austin and San Marcos condition?

    Just curious if anyone knows the condition of the trails due to the massive flooding we had on Wednesday night and early Thursday.

    I want to get out this weekend but not sure if it's horrible or not.

    thanks

    It's still wet man. And I think we'll need another week of sunshine before places like Slaughter Creek, Purgatory, and Walnut are good again. The greenbelt may even need more time than that.

    Visiting Austin for Fun Fun Fun Fest (if they don't cancel it). I haven't reserved a bike or car yet. Is there anything close in that will likely be rideable next Mon, Tues, Wed or should I stick to road? I've ridden Barton Creek but not anywhere else.

    Thanks!

    I am in Austin currently - and know you guys got some rain/flooding? But i took a little trip out to Bluff Creek Ranch and the trails were in good shape. Is there anywhere within the area that would be dry enough to ride tomorrow? I don't mind taking a little drive..out at BCR it wasn't rainy, but I know it was in Austin. Any heads up would be awesome.

    If we don't get anymore rain and plenty of sunshine? I'd say Walnut Creek or Emma Long would be good to ride. The greenbelt dries very slowly, and with the flooding I'm not even sure if there's a trail left!

    Slaughter Creek loop might be dry by then.

    Walnut Creek is not ok to ride. I just called Emma Long (City Park) and they are not open either. Brushy Creek is swampy. Your best bet would probably be Pace Bend or Reimer's Creek Ranch.

    my road bike has been seeing a lot of miles lately while my mtb gathers dust. The Lime Creek Road loop out near Cedar Park (starts and ends on Anderson Mill Road) is a blast, go check that out.
