The Lone Star state may not be known for its mountains or alpine vistas, but the cycling community should be stoked for its first lift-accessed, mountain bike park.
At only 350 feet of vertical, Spider Mountain isn’t setting any records but the proposed lift access single track will be the first of its kind in the state of Texas. The retired Lift 1 from Taos Ski Valley has come to Burnet, Texas about an hour north of Austin, where it will provide downhill mountain biking amid views of Lake Buchanan.
Spider Mountain Bike Park will debut September 29th for an Enduro Race, however the timeline for the lift construction is still undetermined.
