Bike Bluff Creek Ranch

Rate this Adventure Texas Bluff Creek Ranch Trail

Added by The Outbound Collective

Just 60 miles outside of Austin, TX, Bluff Creek Ranch offers fun for the whole family - swimming, fishing, hiking, and camping. The hiking loop is a moderate trail that showcases quiet Texas countryside.

Bluff Creek Ranch is located off of Owl Creek Road (see map). There are 8 miles of well-shaded trails that are accessible year-round and is shared by hikers and bikers. You can also camp here, for $15/person/day (less for children). There are also bunkers available - for a slightly more glamorous night of camping.

With a small group of people, canoes and kayaks, and one vehicle the boomerang trip (paddling against the current, then floating back downstream) up Santa Elena Canyon is the best option for floating.
