Question Texas Hill Country

Please help with routes in and around the Texas Hill County. I have driven through some of the area and quail hunted in the Hills years ago. I have never ridden any place in TX.

I am planning on hauling my GS1200A to San Antonio, TX the day after Christmas to visit my brother. After visiting I will have about a week to ride and explore. I prefer gravel roads but any back road routes would be appreciated. I'm also interested in any "don't miss" spots as well.

The Texas Hill Country is sorta bordered by I-35 on the east, and the area between Uvalde (on US 90), Junction (I-10), and a bit north of Austin on I-35. That's a pretty big area.

Everyone has their favorite roads in the Hill Country. Personally, I like the area west of Bandera. Leakey, Campwood, etc. "Riding the 3's" is what folks call riding the FM 337, FM 336, and FM 335 loop. Very beautiful with lots of twisties.

But look at any map. The small roads are all good.

Watch for deer. Don't ride at dawn and dusk.

Re dirt roads: lets see if others post. I don't have much experience with that.

The further west you go AWAY from civilization the more dirt roads you'll find. Look around some non-existant towns like Click and Doss, or google the eckert bat cave for some off the beaten track type stuff. Lots of nice asphalt roads around enchanted rock too. Around junction there are quite a few dirt roads as there are west of camp wood and rock springs. Besides deer, watch the low water crossings. they are always slick and if you don't respect them a broken body and bike will result. There is a nice dirt road running between 2 of the 3 sisters, RM 335 and 336. Some vids of my fav roads 'round those parts in my sig.

hth!

I did a big road tour last spring on rentals out of DFW. I dropped a note on here and got a lot of help with routes - you might do a search for the thread. If you'd like the Garmin routes drop me a PM with your email and I'll send them to you.

The sound of "right click, download pic to my desktop, upload to my smugmug," when Adways posted that was deafening.

Check out the paved goat-paths West and North of F'burg. Lots less parade traffic than the Sisters and just as fun.
