This is a section of rocky single track that you can enter from Jester Estates neighborhood or from Edward's Park on Spicewood Springs Road. If entering from Edwards Park, go down the hill towards Bull Creek and you will see a few trails heading up the hill on the other side. Bear to the extreme right to follow the Edward's Park trails. Stay left to go up Jester mountain. The Jester mountain trails eventually meet the Bull Creek High Ridge Trails.
The mountain gives a great challenge to those who like leg-burning ascents and high speed descents.
This is a tricky area to bike because
of the Texas Warbler Habitat and the
private property encroachment on
all sides of the preserve.
There is no need to cross fence lines.
There are plenty of trails in the
public areas surrounding Edwards Park.
A few hundred yards from the entrance of Jester Boulevard, there is a hidden section of extremely technical single track. Look for a small log crossing what looks like the entrance to Batman's bat cave. The switch backs are tight and the hills are steep. There are some chainring scraping steps on the trail. Once, my bike hooked itself on a small cypress tree. I went over the bars and continued to tumble down the hill for about 20 yards before coming to a stop.
There are some climbs that require
expert level technical skill, aerobic capacity and
strength to climb.
requiring balance, hopping, pogo-action, traction control, or other bike-handling skills.
requiring sustained heart rates and a high lung capacity.
requiring leg power and upper body development.
Enter Edward's Park, west 2 miles on old Spicewood Springs Road to St. Edward's Park on left, or
Back of Jester Estates, Follow Jester Blvd to its end.
6 miles of networked deer trails, hiking trails, stream beds, mostly single track.
80% rocky limestone with exposed bolders, shelves, and ledges. 20% hard packed dirt.
The trails at the foot of the mountain wind along Bull Creek. During the summer months, Bull Creek can be forded by bike. During winter and spring, the Creek is extremely cold and deeper than the bottom bracket in most sections.
One 200 foot mountain.
