You'll find this loop just west of Houston near a town called Fulshear. From Fulshear, TX go west on route 1093 thorough Simonton, TX, then take route 1458 North past I-10, and you will very quickly come upon route 36 where you want to turn left and check out The Stephen F. Austin State Park. After checking out the park, back to 1458 (take a left and continue north) to Pattison, where you want to hit 359 South through Brookshire and back to Fulshear making a complete loop.

Scenery

A great escape from the hustle and bustle of Houston ... nice relaxing farm roads, few cars to deal with, nice view of the Brazos river, farmland, wildlife.

Road Quality

Mostly smooth, a few rough spots, watch out for the cows, deer, squirrels, and other wildlife crossing the road, plenty of open road to open the throttle with some nice turns and curves

Roadside Amenities

Camping, hiking, fishing, Stephen F. Austin State Park, wildlife abundant. Start and finish in Fulshear, there is a Subway sandwich shop, pizza place, and cafe in town to meet up at.

Needed a way out of the house today, and this was the answer. I started this route at Pepperoni's Pizza in Fulshear. Their lemonade was refreshing since it took me a while this morning to get there. The 8" special is pretty good, though authentic New York Pizza is really still in NY, with a thin crust, and the ability to order by the slice. 1468 has a few slick spots from the road tar for the cracks. This route is busy enough to keep you from stopping for roadside photos. The Stephen F. Austin state park is free as long as you aren't stopping to use their facilities. When you check into their front office, just say you want their promo pass. If you stop it's $5 per person. They just re-opened due to the heavy rain and flooding a few weeks ago. The park is open, but nearly all of their trails are still closed. If this is going to be a stop for a hike, check with the front office before venturing out. This would be a very nice place to stop in the spring/fall. Just getting back on the bike this morning, I was nearly carried away by the gnats and mosquito's. Make sure you pack bug spray. I changed it around a bit, and instead of making the left onto US90 from 359, I made a right on US90 and another left onto 1489 and followed that back down to Simonton. 1489 was quite nice, with a few sweeping turns. No real slick areas like 1468. All in all, I'd see this area again. Next time I'll probably have the family meet me at the park for lunch. I will also probably stop in Fulshear again for a stop at the pizzeria, or maybe the cafe next time.

I gave the route a 3 as it is rather short. Tractor trailers were pretty thick through Fulshear and Simonton. Traffic was busy enough to keep you behind that one person who wants to do 40MPH in a 55MPH zone. Next time I'm in the area I will re-evaluate. Hopefully there will be less traffic.

As a newbie, this trail provides a nice get a away from it all ride with easy cornering and little traffic. Beware the many cyclists on the road side. Perfect for Spring and Fall riding. Also, check out the biker friendly bar the Friendly Parrot on FM 359 near Monaville.

For a newbie, it was a great ride for me....great place to work on curves and manipulating the bike. You do have to watch for farm animals in the road. I came across 3 mules in the road.

This was not a bad ride, but if you do stop in at the pard as I did please not that there is a $4.00 enterance fee per-person. All in all this was a good sunday ride and I will do it again minus the stop at the park it is not worth it unless you plan on staying and having a picnic or something.

I make this Fulshear loop quite a bit, good evening and morning run, minimal traffic and good countryside.
