Loc: Cedar Park, TX
Watson Ranch, Leander, TX.


Bring your camera's if you are into nature because the ranch has billions and billions of wild flowers with all the rain we have had. Take a moment to stop and look. Sometimes when you are only focused on riding the track and do not stop to take a look around you miss out on being out in nature on a beautiful ranch like this one. I think everyone will be amazed at how beautiful this place really is. There are places at the tops of the hills that you can see more than 15 miles to Cedar Park, TX. I am so grateful that Stuart Watson has allowed myself and my son Kyle to go to this place over the years and now we are having a ride day here!!! Thanks to Stuart and Steve Watson.

Please be on your best behavior. The smoother things go this ride day, the better the odds are for us to have more ride days in the future!

George McMahan (Smithville Property) has mentioned several times to me at the end of a ride day after everyone is gone that "you would never know anyone was ever here." Let's do a repeat here!

Treat landowners and their land with respect and our club will have more opportunities to enjoy riding at these most precious places.

Be cautious and do not spook the cattle or horses on the ranch. The cattle and horses are not use to dirt bikes.

TIME

We will begin riding at EIGHT (8) A.M.
We will stop riding at 4 P.M.

COST

$20 for current AMSA members.
LINK TO AMSA MEMBERSHIP FORM
I always have membership forms at any AMSA event and you may join at any event we host. It will save you time to have your membership form completed before you arrive.

$30 for guests.
Your guest fee includes a day membership to AMSA.

Pee Wee riders & beginner riders not riding the trail system will ride at a reduced rate, our discretion.

Non-riders do not pay any fee's.

TRAILS - TERRAIN

We have a 9 to 11 mile main loop. The length depends on if you take the hard splits or the easy split. The hard splits will have some challenging hill climbs for "B" level riders.

We have a kids or beginners loop right next to the parking area.

We have a shorter, guessing 3 to 4 mile loop near parking that you can ride all day long without venturing out into the other area's of the ranch. This will still be challenging for beginner's but nothing difficult like hill climbs or major obstacles.

The terrain in the more hilly area's have some rocks but not anything like Hidden Falls or CTOR. The lower lying area's have clay, sandy loam, and some small rocks that are quarter sized.

Jumps! There are about a dozen jumps that you can hit hard and jump or roll. These are easy jumps and fun, fun, fun. You will know what I mean after you make a few laps.

DIRECTIONS

The address is 15507 Chaparral Drive, Leander, TX 78641.

From Austin. Take HWY 183 or 183 A north to Leander, TX.

You want to take the "Old Georgetown Road" Left or 2243 Left (West).

Drive about 6 miles and turn right onto Round Mountain Road.

Drive about 1/4 mile and turn LEFT onto Fulkes Road.

Drive about 1 and 1/3 miles until you arrive at a three way stop.

Turn right onto Fawn Drive.

At the next right, turn onto Chaparral Drive.

Go to the end of Chaparral Drive and you will end up at the gate to the ranch. This is a very twisty road so be careful, but, it will be worth it!

You must sign-in BEFORE you ride.

Hope to see everyone out to have some fun riding and to enjoy the Watson Ranch.

Thanks,
-The Watson Family & AMSA

Trails are mostly dry now. But there are still some stubborn wet spots. New AMSA signs for the ride day are in place:

Thanks for the update Larry and thank you for the AMSA folks who made it possible!

Krista and I will be there and we're bringing out a few new AMSA guests. It sounds like an awesome ranch for a ride day!
