The Buck Creek Mountain Bike Trail just north of Abilene is a favorite for cyclists in the Big Country region. But you can't just roll up and pedal out when the mood hits. This particular trail is under lock-and-key. However, for the cost of a one-time day pass (or an annual membership), you can purchase access to these miles of scenic trails managed by the Abilene Bike Club.

Pedaling through the rugged Texas terrain could provide a scenic afternoon adventure, while simultaneously boosting your cardiovascular health. The trail has varying degrees of difficulty. Helmets are required. Be sure and pack plenty of water too. It's Texas, y'all.

Where is the Buck Creek trail located?

The almost 14 miles of bike trails are located on E Phantom Hill Road (also known as E Lake Road), immediately north of the Abilene Environmental Lab.
