Welcome to Pace Bend Who doesn't enjoy a Hill Country view? Signs are in place to keep you on the right track A moderate ascent laced with a few loose rocks A long, straight section of doubletrack
It might not look it, but this rocky section is fun going down Smooth singletrack! Take a right to hit the farther reaches of the trails A rocky ascent for your enjoyment Another smooth section of singletrack Plenty of hard-pack singletrack here
Though not a fast descent, feel free to pedal hard A beginner-friendly stretch of singletrack (photo courtesy of lu2mbking) Pace Bend might just have you walking your bike now and then (photo courtesy of lu2mbking) As long as you stay on the trail you'll be ok (photo courtesy of lu2mbking) Pace Bend has ledges, both big and small (photo courtesy of the Waco Bicycle Club)
Pace Bend offers ample opportunity to get those pedals spinning (photo courtesy of lu2mbking) Rolling over rocks is a common thing in the Hill Country (photo courtesy of Buck) Signage is well placed throughout the trails (photo courtesy of lu2mbking) It's not all open riding at Pace Bend Park (photo courtesy of the Waco Bicycle Club) Many sections just beg for more speed (photo courtesy of Buck)
