Government Canyon [Intermediate+] Joe Johnston Trail

We are meeting at Government Canyon for a Mountain Bike ride. We will ride the backcountry trails going up Joe Johnston trail and at the end of that trail we turn around and return on Joe Johnston.  We are not going to enter into the even tougher trails of Sendero Balcones or Wildcat and the other ones.  We are not following the loop.  Thats why I have labeled this as intermediate instead of advanced.

 

Our pace will be between 7 and 12 mph.

Sometimes slowing down sometimes speeding up.

There is a fee of 6.00 to enter the park unless you have an annual state park pass.  Helmet required.  Emphasis- Helmet required on all rides and bring 2 or 3 liters of water for yourself.

As with any park we mountain bike there are smooth parts and rocky parts and any part that makes you uncomfortable you can walk though it. Make sure you have water, sun block, and wear a helmet. When we ride we will have some rest stops along the way to let everyone catch their breath. I will only be there if there are people who RSVP "YES" by the RSVP deadline.

The back country trails are pretty rocky and sometimes require a lot of climbing and in some parts we have to walk our bikes up.

Meet at:

Look for the dark green mountain bike. I will probably be wearing black shorts and a blue shirt. We will meet at the visitor center close to the water tower and bathrooms.

Rain cancels this event.


The deadline to rsvp "Yes" for this meetup is the day before the meetup.
