Written Directions

On 281 south just south past the Burnet's Air Port you will find Park Road 4 off to the right (west). Take a right on to Park Road 4 and just follow it as it winds its way back up north and into Inks State Park.

Scenery

The road is in the Texas hill country starts south of Burnet just off hyw 281 just past the Burnet airport and ends at Lake Buchanan. You can also head into Kingsland and check out Lake LBJ. The view from the road is total Hill County and also two lakes, Ink's and LBJ. You'll ride through deep valleys and hills and since the state owns the road, there are not homes all over the place. The road has been one of my best rides for years. Now its time for you to in joy it!!

Road Quality

The road has a lot of deer and cars stopping to look at them. This a two lane road in good repair. The first 10 miles is the best for me but holy road is nice. There is gas at the store at the bottom of the hill by the boys ranch. The road is has a lot of boats, bikes, and motorcycle lookers. The part from Burnet to the boys ranch is a wild ride with valleys hills and some great turns. Slow down and enjoy the ride. There are dear everywhere on this road. And, there are every kind of ride on this road from golf carts to 4 wheelers bike to boats and RV's

Roadside Amenities

This is great area with a Inks Lakes State Park with camping fishing golf and lot of deer you can all most pet they are so tame. The park has a nice lake. You will also pass through Longhorn Cavern State Park. At the end you can go west and see the much larger Lake Buchanan. The lake in the park is smaller. There is also a boys ranch on the road. There are also one or two overlooks which have great looks into the Kingsland area!

Ok loved this short run. Starts out with some straight road with up n down hills, then a great big hill that is a blast. I'm pretty sure I saw a 11 centry medevile castle before I dropped into the vally into inks lake. From Hooverville to 29 is a great many turns and low traffic, lots of fun. I doubled back and did it again to that hooverville road that took me back to Burnet.

This is a very nice ride. Some mild twisties and hills - so it's a nice change from straight/flat. A couple of roadside stopping places that have really nice views.

I only wish is were longer!

I have made this run a few times. It has good turns and scenery as well as a great burger joint called Hoover Valley country store. Their burgers are great. There is also a nice castle up on one of the hills.
