Recently got my first dirtbike and I'm totally hooked. It's all I can think about. I live in south Austin and have mostly been beating myself up at Emma long. I have made one trip out to Hidden falls. Don't want to sound greedy. Just wondering if there are any other free or cheap places to ride around here. I am not interested in racing. Just looking for challenging single track. Wondering if maybe there is someone with a load of private land that lets riders in cheap. Thanks in advance. Happy riding.

The AMSA ride days are around an hour east/southeast from you, and they are fun but you have to keep your eye out for the posts to see where they are. Powell Ranch apparently has opened as a ride area full time now.

I personally also like Crooked Creek up by Waco - fairly cheap and a smooth flowing trails, with a couple of narrower trails that get more technical.

Powell Ranch will be your best bet. Also Murphy's MX has some trail sections. Check the AMSA section for more info on Powells and google Murphy's MX for their site.
My good friend and brother in law just passed. He always called me "Chick'n Wing". I'm already missing him. RIP Junebug.
