    Just moved to Austin (Steiner Ranch)

    My family and I moved here a couple months ago. Looking to get out for some morning rides and I understand there are decent trails right in Steiner?? I was thinking about a regular Friday morning ride from the neighborhood. Bike the kids over to school and then drop into the trails for an hour before work.

    Anybody around know this area? And maybe interested in something regular?

    check out the LAME group (lakeway). There are some steiner trails, but I have never ridden them. There are other trails that you can find as well in the area.

    Yeah, Steiner trails are fun. They have some good tech in a few sections.

    Thanks for all the info. I joined the mailing list for SRC. Seems they are mostly a road group. I'll check out LAME. Thanks!

    Go to 113 Trophy Dr. Lakeway, TX. It's a school I think.

    There should be a big wooden trail entry map. I hear it's pretty good but have never been myself.

    Here's a map to the Steiner Ranch bike trails. You are supposed to be a member of the HOA to ride them. I used to work at a spa at the end of Quinland Park rd that had a deal worked out with the HOA that allowed employees full usage of the trails. You will get stopped a few times by riders interrogating you to see if you are poaching trails or if you actually live there. It gets annoying really quickly with the n.i.m.b.y. attitude. There is some good climbing that you can easily get to by riding from your front door. Trails go from down near the Randall's near 620 across from the elementary school to almost down by the boat ramp at Lake Austin. Check the map and you can see plenty of access points throughout the development. Most of the good riding is on the south side of Quinland Park looking over Lake Austin. The good terrain on the north side is either taken up by the University of Texas golf club or some pretty underdeveloped and poorly designed renegade trails. Those usually get screwed up anyways by development eventually.
