    There are short, DH-style runs on a lot of trails, but long DH runs just aren't what you will find.

    Central texas riding is about technical riding, not big air.

    You must have a vastly different idea about what technical is, then, because most places I've been to have plenty of technical areas. A few that I can think of: The Sendero Balcones Trail at Government Canyon. I've only hiked it, and only about half of it, but it's pure rock steps, up and down. OP Schnabel. The park/trail system itself is mostly tame, but there are a few downhill parts, and a giant...pit for lack of a better word...where you can ride downhill and jump over logs to your hearts' content (I think it's the creek bed of Leon Creek). Then, there are built up jumping and...I guess freeride(?) areas at McAllister park. I usually see kids on bmx bikes and the type of bikes that look like the Specialized P series on those areas. Just a few areas that I've observed - and avoided - around the SA area. Hope you find what you're looking for.

    Mike is a good friend of mine and I too have been looking for some nice freeride areas in Cent. Texas. Mainly north shore ladder style stuff...I found some in San Marcos thats a secret as to the exact location, but I know :hint: :hint: Mike. I also heard of some stuff that jaime at Drop Zone knows about in Salado Creek area...but have yet to bump into anyone that knows how to get there. We're heading to DropZone on Monday to check out some Transitions so hopefully we can get a low down one that.

    You in Mike? Its gonna be Eric C. and myself and possibly Austin. Oh and anyone else interested in Emma Long or Pace Bend on Sunday? PM me.

    Basically coming to central texas and wanting big DH is like going to an italian restaurant and wondering why you can't get a good enchilada there.
