Written Directions

Start your route in Four Points, TX which is just outside the north west side of Austin next to Lake Travis. From here just head west on Bulluck Hollow Road and it will T into FM FM 2769 - take a left (head west). Follow this road as it winds next to the lake and it changes names to Lime Creek Rd. The road will wind its way away from the lake and T into W. Whitestone Blvd. Take a left and now you'll be heading west on FM 1431. Now you're going to stay on this road for a while as it goes through Jonestown, Lago Vista, Smithwick, and finally takes you to the routes Marble Falls.

Scenery

This road runs out of Austin to the northwest and then skirts along the north edge of Lake Travis. Just a little out of Austin you will pass the famous County Line BBQ on the Colorado River.

Road Quality

On the stretch that is the north side of the lake there are some curves that require the rider to slow to about 10mph to negotiate; there is some gravel present. Note: IF THE SIGN SAYS 10MPH, BETTER GO 10MPH.

Roadside Amenities

Plenty of stops in Austin, in Four Corners and also Volente. If you continue on you will hit FM 1431 that will take you all the way to Marble Falls.

DO NOT BE RUSHED ON THIS ROAD!!! If you aren't comfortable, make them pass! This is a great ride for twisties and views and very technical riding. Mind the speed limits, and hairpin turns, you will see a few corners where pegs dragged and the bike dropped into the hole due to lack of speed or ability. My wife followed me on her bike and we were doing fine but we got caught by about 6 guys on adventure bikes who wanted to go faster than we were going right as we went into the hardcore twisties, so they probably turned around and ran it again... but when we dropped into town there was Johnny Law sitting there waiting for us so I probably saved them a few hundred in welcome to Texas fees. :)

Very nice but scary at times especially when your bike wants to go faster. On a crotch rocket it is very adrenalin-filled , this is a road for the more experienced sports bike rider every curve is a blind one and you gota watch out for school buses and 18 wheelers ,the first time i remember goin down a big hill and down the hill was a big curve dont wana run off the road on that one..after a couple times it gets more fun once you know the road

This is probably the most technical ride I've done so far. The posted speed limits are really not to be used as suggestions. Tons of twisties,hills,dips curves and what have you. Big sections of this ride you are constantly busy. Downshift,brake, roll off throttle, roll on throttle, clutch, lean. Fun ride but not for a beginner.

Great road for twisties and rolling hills. Lots of fun in the turns and curves. Use care since you are sharing the road with lots of others. Saw a car rollover in the ditch about ten miles out of Marble Falls. A few places to stop along the way and great food at either end................1

This is one of the best Texas rides I have been on. I only gave it 4, because we did the 1500 miles around TN and NC last summer and that is hard to beat. The twisties around the lake are a blast. Although the ride is not super long. Great scenery as well. For a break, there are several places to pull off on dead end roads and walk closer to the lake. Be cautious as everyone mentioned. Watch out for slow cars as well. On the way back we stopped by the Uncle Billys Brew and Que by the Oasis on Lake Travis. Very good microbrews and bbq. You can also take a right by the Oasis for a quick 10 minute scenic ride. The road dead ends... just turn around and go back.

This was a fun road to ride. Scenery is nice, bunch of trees plus houses here and there. Nice for a passenger to look at but driver needs to pay attention to road, signs, and speed limit. Its an exciting ride with turns after turns with multiple hills. Excellent ride!!!

Amen on slowing down on lime creek road. I live in the area and a year doesn't go by without losing a rider to this road. This ride is really fun but be on top of your game here and don't get stupid. OBEY the speed signs!!!!!! Their important. Ride safe.

Brother, you are so right- when it says 10MPH on Lime Creek Rd, you don't want to be going 11! Good way for your motorcycle to end up in a tree. It is a beautiful ride, though!

One of my favorite routes that is close to my house. Is good as posted. Fun to ride lots of twisty roads. Ive done it from the 620 BBQ joint (great bbq for decades) to marble falls. The part from 620 to 1431 is mostly slow roads heavier traffic (you will get stuck behind 15mph car and blind corners) and lots of twisty road. However From Lago Vista to Marble Falls is great. Cars go faster and easy to rev up and pass in needed. If your tired of high speed take a turn off onto Cow Creek Road from 1431, great hills clear water take a private dip in the clear water creek. But watch out on Cow Creek many hazards like alge riden roads low water crossings, cattle gaurds, dirt n rocks.

We lived on this road for 12 years, until '07. The "girl of my dreams" took her first ride on it when she got her license and we bought her a Softail Standard. We loved going to the Blue Bonnet for pie and coffee and then on to Luckenbach....
