Spring Break is coming and Reveille Peak Ranch will be open to the public the entire week of March 11-15. The park is normally open every Friday for season pass holders and every Saturday and Sunday unless otherwise specified because of an event. A fee of $10 per person gives cyclists and joggers access to beautifully diverse trails winding through granite outcroppings, wildflowers, and creek beds.
Camping is available for out-of-town visitors. You’ll also find a clear, spring-fed quarry lake available for paddle boating, swimming and fishing. Lake Buchanan is only one mile away by water. There’s also a swimming pool near the covered pavilion.
As a non-profit, proceeds help fund the Wounded Warrior Project, which holds a race at the ranch.
“I come from a strong military foundation,” says owner Vol Montgomery. “I have a strong sense of loyalty. I never served, but I want to serve those who do serve.”
The privately-owned park has more than 60 miles of maintained running and mountain-biking trails. It’s one of the most unique facilities in the area — even in the state.
Along with trails, you can try your hand at the ranch’s pump track for mountain bikers.
Throughout the year, Reveille Peak Ranch hosts events and competitions from mountain-bike races to obstacle courses.
The next big event scheduled is the Bluebonnet Adventure Fest April 20-21, which includes 5K and 10K runs, the Bluebonnet Adventure Race, a kids’ fun run and a triathlon.
