Texas will be centerstage for a total solar eclipse on Monday, April 8, 2024!  In Bastrop, at approximately 12:20 pm, the moon will start to block the sun causing an (almost) total solar eclipse. The sun is expected to eclipse until 2:25 pm. We're located right outside the path of totality, making Bastrop a great place to view the eclipse without having to maneuver the crowds.

Wildflower takes place over two days with a range of standard and unique race distances. This is a great single-track trail system in Texas hill country with small rocky sections and nice climbs. The scenery allows you to see the fire-struck forest from 2011 as well as the rebirth of the Lost Pines in the area. Trails are still being rebuilt from the fires to this day, in 2024 we hope to feature a new trail section!
