Hello MTB and Cyclocross Riders!
We are inviting you and your friends to come and ride the new sections of trails we added, *free of charge, on October 8th and 9th 2022.
If you didn’t know, 1000 acres sold in 2021, leaving only 6+ miles of ridable trails.
However, over the past year – with the much appreciated help of volunteers – our dedicated Rocky Hill Ranch Dirt Crew have added additional trials for a total of 14+ miles of trails and jeep road with more planned for 2023 and the coming years.
So come on out and put some miles on our new trails and enjoy an epic weekend of cycling fun! ~ Rocky Hill Ranch

Ruta Maya Coffee
Ruta Maya Organic Coffee Company was founded in 1990 in Austin, Texas on a simple premise — to create a marketplace of superior products produced in Latin American countries and to return to the producers of those products a fair portion of profits generated. 🙂
Junior’s Beer and Wine
Junior’s Beer and Wine first opened for business in 1982 and has always been locally owned and operated. Its a funky little store with a mess of great beer, just off the drag and across the street from Breed & Co. Tiffany and Jason took over the store in September of 2011 and have been operating it everyday since. We welcome any beer requests you may have – if you don’t see it on our shelves let us know and if its distributed in Texas we’ll get it here. 512-222-7577.
