Start out in Round Rock, TX. Head west on FM 1431 into Texas Hills country through the towns of Marble Falls and on to Kingsland, TX. Turn around and head back when you feel like it.
This route travles through the Texas Hill Country. All near the gorgeous Highland Lakes area. This area is especially beautiful in the spring through June when it turns into a utopia of wild flowers. The first flowers to bloom are Bluebonnets and they are quickly joined by red Indian Paintbrush flowers which makes for a blanket of blue and red flowers covering the fields. Later in the season, these flowers are overtaken by various yellow, red, and white flowers ... you've got to see it to believe it.
This road is very twisty and has several hills to go over. The road is very smooth and clean. From Cedar Park there is only one stop light and then next one is not until you get to Marble Falls
Take FM1431 out of Round Rock Texas West towards Marble Falls. Stop in Marble Fall and have lunch on the lake. There are several camping areas around the Highland Lakes, as well as great restaurants. The Lakes themselves are the best part. If it gets too hot just pull into one of the parks and take a dip to cool off.
