The pics are from a place that has just been closed. It is actually public land in north Austin. The main entrance has been blocked recently... by a few blocks. It is funny though as it is a "grey" area according to police. They only started showing up lately as the illeagal dumping has been getting outta hand. Also, there's a few people who live in the nearby apartments that think their rent gives them some type of right to ownership of the trails. Actually, the place used to be horse trails before it became the property of the city of Austin. Due to this fact, it is technically open land. Some guys that ride dirtbikes out their expanded some of the trails very nicely (Kaiser and others) and they're a great group of people. Unfortunately some other not-so-well-mannered riders found out about it and one weekend there were about 30 dirtbikes out there... soon after, the main entrance was barricaded. I'm not sure what caused the closing or even whether the city or private citizens did it. Not to suggest anything but a vehicle with a towstrap can probably move one or two of the blockers out of the way. Maybe even a quad?
The place holds sentimental value for me as it is where I broke my Rover over and over. I've been going to that place since 2000. It's gotten more and more character over the years and has even lost some of it. Funny how some trails got easier and others got harder.
PM me for location. Must admit I'm also interested in your DIY disco and roof rack plans.
