Where to Ride

Emma Long Municipal Park (aka City Park)

The CTTA is very fortunate to have an Austin City Park to ride in. There is about 7 miles of hard single-track trail and numerous creeks with limestone ledges and rolly-polly caliche ball bearings… terrain that is ideal for trials. The CTTA has been hosting Local and State Championship Trials events at “City Park” for more than 30 years.

Put this address into your favorite map utility: 7544 0ak Shores Dr, Austin TX 78730  Show on Google Maps

Directions: From RR 2222 & Hwy 360, go west on RR 2222 to first light. Turn left (south) on City Park Rd. Turn left (east) onto Oak Shores Dr at sign for Motorcycle Trail. Entrance to the park is on the left.

Trials riders are usually at the park Wednesday afternoon and on weekends.

UPDATE: While many (most of the) trials sections are still open, the BCP has successfully closed the trail and the BEST trials sections in the park along Conner Creek. If you would like to read about this inappropriate and unjustified take of park land, please click one or both of the following links (courtesy of Tomas Pantin & Kent Browning).
