Written Directions

The Three Sisters route starts in Medina, TX. From Medina catch RR337 (at this point you are starting on "The Three Sisters") heading west (right). Take RR337 west until you come up on the town of Leakey. At Leakey, go north on US 83 for a just about a mile and look for RR336 on the left. Take a left onto RR336 which will head you north. Continue north on RR336 until you meet Texas 41 and at this point you will want to turn left in order to head west. Go west for 15 miles or so and you will find RR335 on the left. Take a left (east) and get on RR335 and drive south down to Camp Wood where you can take a left on to RR337 and finish out the loop when you hit Leakey again.

Scenery

A ride through this part of Texas will most certainly change your view of my beloved state. You will ride amongst scenery as good as it gets, along clear rivers, through very twisty mountain type curves amidst real Texas Ranches. With million dollar vistas and cool clear waters along with friendly folks and knowing that you are riding the best this large state can offer, makes for great riding... Nueces River (pronounced New-Aces) on Ranch Rd 335

Road Quality

This route is mainly very twisty passing over large hills and between not many gas stations. This roller coaster ride will no doubt blow you away. The road is not heavily traveled, but beware as sharp turns have certainly taken many motorcyclist down. Also, although the surface is mostly in very good condition, always watch for loose gravel, deer and slow moving locals heading back to their ranch ... often a much slower pace than we're zippin by at.

Roadside Amenities

This route isn't going to be know for its "Roadside Amenities" as much as it is known for its scenery and road quality. There are some very nice pull-outs, stop and enjoy the long vistas. Gas up in Leakey as there are not too many gas stations to choose from and where there is a very good motorcycle shop. For a refreshing summertime swimming hole try the Frio River (frio meaning cold!!!). Note from a recent MotorcycleRoads.com visitor about this route: "Hwy 16 between Kerrville and Bandera is not for beginners! Due to recent accidents, weekend police patrol has increased a great deal. Hwy 173 may be a better route between Kerrville & Bandera."

No disrespect to Texas- but after reading all the "breath -taking" reviews about the 3 sisters, i had to chime in. We spent a week riding the area and had a GREAT time. The people were the best. But I must admit I was a little underwhelmed with the quality of the roads (not smooth) and did not enjoy so many blind slow curves. There were more straights than I expected also. We made the journey from Florida because we kept hearing how great the riding was. And it was nice- but not near as great as people say ( in my humble opinion). Then we went to the Smokies - there i was absolutely blown away. To me the Smokies are a 10 while the Hill country, in comparison, a 2 or 3. I write this to be the only person to say," don't get your hopes up" and if you can choose just for riding, choose the Smokies. Otherwise Texas was one of the best vacations we ever had.

Thanks - and don't hate - just my opinion

I have met people from all over the world who have come to ride the Sisters. Don't miss Frio Canyon just west of Leakey on FM337. It is a small Motorcycle Mecca in this area. Bikers and Motorcyclists welcome and friendly. A couple of important tips, FM337 between Medina and Leakey is technical, with long lulling stretches of predictable twists, until you get to the "Gulch" or "Gap" going west it is a mean decreasing radius after a sweet set of sweepers. Heading east it is a tight turn that opens up to an off-camber hump, and I don't know which is worse. For folks from urban areas FM336 is a "Free Range Cattle" area, which is Texan for no fences, and the occasional cattle guard (RR tracks 6 feet wide). About half of the cattle guards are on a curve. Also very important keep your eye out for a guy with a camera next to a Goldwing. He takes pictures of riders as they pass by and then you can buy them at txmotofoto.com I have several.

This ride is one of the top ten rides in the nation. It has it all. Scenery and challenge. The scenery is certainly beautiful especially in the spring. Not too hot and trees and cactus in bloom. The people in the area are glad to have you there and are friendly. The road surface itself is in fair to good conditon. The curves are many and sometimes surprising. We saw no livestock on the road at all but the possibility is there. Unexpected trips off the road will surely result in seriuos injury and the cushion is large sharp rock. If you leave the road you will get hurt. The road lulls you to over confidence then jumps up to bite. This ride is not for beginners at all as the speeds can get too great leading into a sharp curve. The roadside amenities are limited so be sure to fuel up when possible. The state of Texas needs to put more marked pull outs on these roads for rest and photos. There are good food and fuel in Leakey plus a great motorcycle food/music/shop just west of Leakey. This road should not be missed by serious motorcyclist.

My wife and I are new riders on our new FLHXS . We drove down with experienced riders and i must say for a novice rider I did extremely well. We stayed at the Super 8 Hotel in Kerville and drove to Medina on 16 . We decided to run the Sisters backwards and hit 337 1st. There is a review on this page stating that 16 is just as challangeing as the sister's and that is accurate. 337 was my 1st test. It was a blast , steep climbs , sweeping turns a switch back and a very very fast descent . I did not see any steep drop off's , because i was focused on on the road. My wing woman (spouse) was on the rear. I used all skills learned in motor cycle safety course and must say it paid off. My wing woman says the view was awesome, the turns awesome and as you were turning you could see other bikes moving out of the turns in front of you . We both agree 337 was our favorite. We stopped at Frio Canyon Motorcycle Store to rest. The accomodations were excellent. Service fantastic, restrooms clean and you could fill up for gas there . On to 335. Ranch Road 335 was less challangeing than 337 , not very steep , very few sweeps but there was lost of hills that you could fly over .335 was like being on a adult roller coaster. We stopped at Two Fat Boys in Camp Wood Texas for a bite to eat. We had Chopped Brisket Sandwiches, a bowl of beans, and a tall glass of water. The food was awesome. The service was outstanding I highly reccomend this stop for all. On to 336. This ride was fun not as challangeing as 337 or even highway 16 , but watch that switchback after the 4th or 5th cattleguard. Its like being in a slingshot , it was fast as hell and fun like no other. After that switch back make sure you stop at the top of the hill about 2 miles ahead and take a photo of the valley with your bike and friends . The rest of 335 was a blast. Over all this run could be dangerous if you don't pay attention to what you are doing, and if someone drives out of their lane into oncoming traffic. Ammenities were excellent every where , unless you are a snob ! Watch your speed !

Great Route... Of course you need to be very careful... if you go down, either you die by going over a cliff or by hitting the memorial white cross from someone else who has died there before... not some roads for novices...

I started riding "The sisters" and all around this part of Texas in 1982.
Back then there were even less amenities and almost never any other motorcycles. My wife and I had our own little world to ourselves.
Not really biker friendly back then, mostly hunter friendly and geared for the hunters. That did not stop my wife and I we loved it so much. We would camp on the South Llano River by the 2nd crossing down stream from Telegraph, TX....a ghost town now. Telegraph store was open had gas, snacks, ice and ice cold Lone Star. We rode 335, 336, 337 and many of the other great roads in the area every trip and we went 10 trips every year. The cattle guards are not a big deal, if you are freaking out about cattle guards you probably shouldn't be riding these roads. Just slow down and ride straight when you approach until you get used to them. Some of the best riding in the country, swimming holes, campsites and much better amenities now. I can remember in 1981 trying to get a motel in Junction and was told "motorcycles not allowed". 33 yrs later they are rolling out the red carpet for motorcycles! We bring $$! This area is so popular now in the Spring there are too many bikes! LOL.. We ride it now in the Summer....less traffic.
I knew in 1982 when we stumbled on this area that it was such a great place to ride that one day word would get out and eventually it would become a mecca for riders. We were certainly not the first to ride this area but it certainly wasn't well known. We love the roads, the people, the views and the freedom you feel when there. After all these years the excitement of each coming trip puts a little more skip in my steps!
Know your bike's limits, know your limits and certainly stay focused, stay safe!

Took this ride on my Wing this Sept. 08 and found it to be everything I expected. The scenery is absolutely spectacular. The two sisters that are made up of 337 and 335 are the most challenging. Be aware of possible gravel in sharp turns and rocks fallen onto the road. Do not make this run at night , you can't see the deer in the road! If you are an experienced rider and you haven't run the Sisters, you haven't run the best that Texas has to offer!

THEY HAVE A NICE COLLECTION OF OLD MOTORCYCLES AND A RESTAURANT INSIDE THE MUSEUM. GOOD BURGERS AND COLD SODA POP. TAKE CARE & RIDE SAFE!

Had heard and read about these roads for years, so my expectations were very high, which usually sets you up for a let down. Man, not in this case! the roads were amazing. The scenery was absolutely breathtaking. The stops along the way were nothing but great food, and very biker-friendly folks. Based out of Koyote ranch...a little pricey, but great food, rooms, and service.

Have ridden the Sisters on three trips this spring. The ride from Kerrville on Hwy 16 to Medina and then west on 337 to Leakey was as much fun as the Sisters - and much more challenging. Take Hwy 39 to Hwy 83 from Kerrville for a nice ride to Leakey if you want to avoid the 1st gear, straight uphill switchbacks on 16.

This ride is on my top five for Tx. But since I'm coming from Houston, I don't think I'm going to waste my time on 41 or 336 next time - just up and down 335 and 337. 336 is simply a death wish since cattle and deer freely meander accross it not to mention those damn cattle guards.

Motorcycle Make H-D FLSTC

Motorcycle Type Cruiser

A group of the 8 riders in our family (including the wife and I) set out on a road trip from North Central Texas to "do" the 3 Twisted Sisters in late April 2013. We stayed in Kerrville after arriving in the area, and then early Saturday morning we took 16 south to Medina and began on RR 337. They were all on newer bikes (we ride a '93 FLSTC)and my bro-in-laws and cousin and LOVE to ride fast. We, being a little more laid-back, like to take things smooth and easy and averaged about 25 MPH slower than they did on the long sweeps and straightaways. We often found ourselves alone riding in some of the prettiest countrysides in Texas and were also passed by some of the fastest riders in Texas who just wanted to see how fast they could find one of the 10 MPH curves. Be sure to stop at the Frio Canyon Motorcycle Stop for a burger and t-shirt. We had a great time and if you have the time after you do the whole 150 mile circuit, take 83 north out of Leakey, catch 39 east, and see some more beautiful sites along the different branches of the South Fork of the Guadalupe River. This stretch isn't considered part of the 3 Twisted Sisters route, but it ought to be. It is so green there in the spring, you'd think you were in East Texas. Word of advice: Don't do this ride if you have not been riding consistently for a few years - these roads are VERY deceptive and you could find yourself impaled on a white cross dedicated to someone else who didn't respect the road and their abilities (or lack thereof). Gas up EVERY chance you get, and think of investing in a Reda Can - a one gallon gas can that can be stored in a saddlebag. You may not need it, but some poor rider who ran out of gas you find stranded will certainly appreciate the kindness. Also - part of this ride (parts of RR 335 and RR 336) are in an "Open Range" county and livestock are not behind barb wire. "Open Range" in Texas means this: In a "non-Open Range" county, if you hit livestock - it is the livestock owner's fault. In an "Open Range" county, if you hit a livestock... it is YOUR fault. So, if you have at least moderate experience (a few years at least) and at least moderate skills, go ride the most entertaining and beautiful route in Texas. Peace >

Rode the 3 sisters Friday and Saturday October 17th and 18th 2008. What a great ride, the scenery is fantastic. The cattle guards do take away from the ride but not bad. Just slow down a little. Do be careful in the twisties. Our ride captain went down on Saturday. He came over the top of one of the hills to find the road made a sharp right turn. He went off the road and crashed. He will be ok, broken femur and a bruised ego. So be careful and enjoy what I think is the best riding in Tx.

Being a winter Texan I have ridden the "Three Sisters" at least five times a year for over ten years now. Having ridden in about 30 diffwerent states I rate the "Three Sisters" right at the top with all of my favorit rides. I just cant get enough of those three highways, especially the "Roller Coaster" 335, and the 16 mile stretch between Leaky and Vanderpool that we call the "Twisted Sister"

I have never had as much fun with my clothes on. 14 bikes in our group and we rode all three sisters in both directions over two and one half days. Stayed at Camp Wood and had a wonderful time. The roads were great except for the cattle guards on Hwy 336. Watch out for them. Weather was great for us and there is plenty of places around to get gas food and drinks. Remember this is for riding, not for lounging about in a drinking establishment.

I have to add my 2 cents. While we enjoyed riding the Hill Country and the Sisters, I must agree with a couple of riders who suggest that most other riders are really over-rating this when compared to other area's like the Smokies. The best comment was if you give the Sisters a 4 or 5 you would need to give Cherohala or Blue Ridge a 50.. Plus there are so many distractions to worry about in Hill Country like deer, blind curves and falling rock. I would have been just as happy in a car- totally unlike how I would feel in Smokies. Love Texans, and the food is the best - just not the riding.. PS.. scenery with all the rivers is really nice

This was a really great ride. I have to say, though, that putting the Texas Hill Country in the same league as the Blue Ridge Parkway, Beartooth Pass, or San Juan Parkway is not realistic. Those roads are SPECTACULAR while this one is really, really nice. The road surface is pretty good and the scenery is nice. Trying to put the scenery in the same category as Western North Carolina or the Rockies is just silly, though. Let's be reasonable about how we rate these roads if you want to be taken seriously.

Rode the three sisters and dropped in at the Lone Star Motorcycle Museum. Stayed at Garner State Park. The area is everything it's cracked up to be. Sure you have to watch for critters and loose gravel in places but the cattle guards are no concern at all - Not sure why people are concerned about them. Do not ride this area at night if you can help it. There are deer, turkey and other unpredictable animals all over the place from dusk onwards.

The Three Sisters are a great ride, but ya need to know your limitations. Lots of chances to ruin your whole day. I've ridden the roads in North Georga, Tennesse, & North and South Carolina. Those roads are great too, but they always have a bunch of car traffic. The Sisters are pretty near deserted. I live very close, so I get to ride these roads every weekend. Ya gotta ride "The Twisted Sisters", at least once.

September 25th - 27th, 2009 This was a fantastic ride... there were three of us who took off from Austin on Friday - and found the Three Sisters a fantastic ride. The road quality was good (I kept hearing about the cattle guards - but they were smooth smooth smooth) and the road quality was great! Couple that with the awe-inspiring views and fantastic weather and you have one of the best rides in Texas. Also recommend staying in the Leakey area - gives you an opportunity to take your time and appreciate all the area has to offer. Definitely would recommend to anyone who wants to experience one of the best rides in Texas.

We rode up from San Antonio on the advice of some bikers we'd met in Bandera earlier in the day and just thought we'd check it out. I've been riding for years and my brother just started. I'm used to riding in N.C. Va. and Oh. and haven't seen anything better. Novices beware! Them speed limit signs are for you.

You won't regret it. We gona do it again real soon. Matter a fact, One of my buddies went back to Leakey this weekend, from Houston just because he forgot a T-Shirt.

This is some of the best riding TX has to offer. Amenities are mostly camp grounds and cabins, but that is definitely part of the experience.

Why did I only give this place a 3? Because in the grand scheme, TX just doesn't have any great motorcycle roads. If I rated this a 5, what would I rate the Tetons to Yellowstone route or almost every single backroad in Appalachia. Just saying.

I read most of the reviews on this site and I concur with the majority view. The Twisted Sisters come as advertised, scenic and challenging. If you are a sport bike rider like I used to be, then you face a daunting challenge. Do you spend the time looking out over the valleys at the breathtaking vistas, or do you set up the next curve? You really can't do both unless you have all the turns memorized. So be careful. There have been several sport bike riders who have been injured and/or killed within the past few years.

I haven't seen anybody mention the following route which perturbs me a bit. Take hwy 27 west of Kerrville to Hunt. Take 39 southwest to hwy 187. Then south on 187. Be ready for 10 or 11 low water crossing areas. Yes, the traffic and stoplights getting out of Kerrville will be a problem. Other than that though, a very rewarding little side track.

Great Ride!! Hands down one of the top 3 in Texas. I started in Medina, leaving my home at 7am & picking up a passenger in Copperas Cove, TX and riding approximately 165 miles to get there. My timing was such that we would eat lunch in Leakey..but what we didn't know at the time was that the restaurant we wanted to eat at was on the return stretch on 337 coming back into Leakey from the north. So filled up with gas & hydrated with cold water, then proceeded north from Leakey on 336 up to TX41, ran west, left on 335, and down...finally stopping at a little roadside cafe called "Angel Wings Cafe". The food was good, but the people were great. Very friendly, from the waitress who was on her 4th day working there, to the customers who just pulled up a chair and started conversating. We finished lunch and proceeded south through Barkesdale where we were told to watch out for the local cop who liked to write tickets, and on to Camp Wood where we picked up the final stretch of 337 leading us back into Leakey from the NW. As we entered Leakey THERE was the retaurant Frio River that we wanted to eat. Oh well, by then we were eager to finish the loop, head back to Medina, and then on back home. For us, it was slightly over 500 miles for the day...about 520 to be exact. But what a great day! This loop is NOT for novices, and I recommend if you want to carry a passenger, do it in the cooler months...not in July like I did. I'll probably be back this summer...but riding solo this time. The views are breathtaking, the people are friendly...and oh yeah, make sure you top off in Leakey because there isn't a gas stop to stop at until Barkesdale... If you ride, and if you live in Texas...you must ride the Sisters!

3/12/11 My riding buddy and I rode from Juntion, TX down 377 to 41 then south on Ranch Rd 335 to Ranch Rd 337 then rode east to Leakey, Tx. We then headed north on 336 to Hwy 41. Then East on 41 to FM 1340 east to 39 then 27 to Kerrville. We ate in Kerrville then headed south on 16 to 337 west back to 335 then headed north to 41 west, then north on 377 back to Junction. We rode from 6:30 am to 7:30 pm for a total of 335 miles on Saturday. It was an amazing ride. Temp's ranged in the morning from mid 50's to upper 70's mid day. At the Frio Canyon Motorcycle Shop we stopped and talked with a group of South Texas American Legion riders riding the sisters also. When we arrived back in Junction we were tired,,, but couldn't wipe the smiles from our faces. I suggest any avid rider who wants a day of amazing riding and site seeing,, Ride the Three Twisted Sisters and Hwy 16 from Kerrville down to 377. A Truly Great Day of Riding.

I rode this recently, and I must say... WOW. That was one of the best routes I have been on so far. Also, don't pass up 336! That was one of the funnest sections of twisties. I didn't see any deer nor cows that day, there are only a few cattle guards, and they were very smooth and mainly on straight sections of the road. 336 was also very good pavement. If you have never been on those roads before, take it easy the first time, and you will have a blast!

I rode the 3 Sisters the past weekend (Feb. 27 -29, 2009. The only way to describe this is "Breath Taking!" No construction evident, plenty of gas. Be sure to stop in Leaky at the Biker Stop. Plenty of curves, elevation changes and 41 is a good place to "see what you got" so to speak.
I will return within 3 months. This is a ride and a place one who loves riding, scenery and all around beauty will never tire of.
Be safe.

As of the end of September 08, 337 is still under construction for the last 2 miles into Leakey. The rest is great. It is passable, but go slow. Loose gravel. All of the rest of the sisters is in fine shape, and one should not fear the cattleguards. Just slow for them. Camp Wood is a great ending place, or starting for that matter. Gas and food available in every town you come to. Fall is the time to do this!

Caution: 337 between Vanderpool and Leakey is under repair as of 4/08. 6-8 miles of hard packed dirt. However, if still under repair, you can check a map and drop down at Vanderpool or Leakey, and take another route to pick back up on the remainder of 337. Maybe the best ride in Texas: the Three Sisters (335, 336, 337)

I've relocated from Eastern TN to SE TX and have really enjoyed riding the Hill Country, including the 3 Sisters. Great scenery and nice remote location with fun roads. Although I must say there is no comparison between these roads & those of the Appalachian Mtns of TN, NC, & GA. Not criticizing at all, just observing as a result of 45 years of touring, adventure, and off road riding. The Tail of the Dragon, Cherohala Skyway, Moonshiner 28, etc are far and away more challenging and more scenic. Still love the Hill Country, but if this is your #1 ranking, you've never ridden the Appalachians

Excellent ride and lots of variation to make the ride interesting. The views you will experience are comparable to old western movies with hills in the distance and spectacular valleys. The hills can be challenging so don't underestimate the curves, but if you ride within your skill limits this ride is a lot of fun! Locals at The Old Timer were very nice and informative, provided map and overview of what to expect on the ride. Road conditions on 337 were a little rough lots of loose gravel in areas but on curves roads were smooth and reliable. Great scenery and not many cars on trunks on any of the roads which made for a relaxing ride. Check out the motorcycle museum and make sure to stop at the restaurants in Leakey for a bite to eat along the way. Make sure you have a full tank of gas as gas stations are a novelty on on these roads. If you are in the San Antonio area make sure you take this ride!

Three Sisters are all the best that Texas has to offer. Many good roads in the area around these as well. Road surface is good, watch for those fallen rocks in the turns when the signs say and the cattle guards on 336 can be tricky, especially the sixth one north from Leakey, at the bottom of a hill on a turn. Ten cattle guards total and this is open ranchland so keep an eye out for critters, cattle, deer and hogs.
The riding is great fun, technical in a few spots, not like the Tail of the Dragon but still pretty good.
Go east on 41 past 336 about 9 miles and you hit Garven's in Mountain Home TX. Good place to get gas if needed and also a unique little store.

Great Ride!! Hands down one of the top 3 in Texas. I started in Medina, leaving my home at 7am & picking up a passenger in Copperas Cove, TX and riding approximately 165 miles to get there.

Wife and i of 45 years decided we needed to do this before more time passes. Boy was it enjoyable. The " sisters " has more beauty than one deserves. Sadly there was a fatality on 336. I cannot stress enough that the twisted sisters is not for the novice. If you don't have a bunch of seat time, stay off it. Saw quite a few of "kids" on the crotch rockets and am amazed there is not more fatalities. Anyway was very enjoyable and planning on going back for some of the other rides in the hill country.

I, like many other riders on this site, have heard many great things about the twisted sisters over the years. So, I decided to see what all the fuss was about and take the ride down from Wisconsin this summer. Overall, it was a fairly large disappointment. The scenery was beautiful for the most part, but overall the ride was rather boring. The roads offered few exciting twists and turns. There would either be high speed small curves, or slow speed tight curves. Very few pull offs can be found along the way when you feel like a break or want a picture. Though I personally am not all that concerned about amenities, there are very few to be found along the way. I chose the twisted sisters over the dragon tail am very sorry to say so.

The best ride I have ever been on and no I have never had the pleasure of riding in Tennessee or North Carolina. I started from Kerrville, to Medina, Vanderpool, Camp Wood, Rocksprings then out 41 and down 336,back to Vanderpool to the Lone Star Motorcycle Museum then back to Kerrville. For the best riding pleasure I suggest leaving at dawn, I began at 6:15 in the morning in June 2016. The sun coming up over the hill behind you will add fantastic lighting to the hills especially when everything is nice and green. BEWARE deer are very thick in this area so do not be in a hurry, take your time and enjoy.
Gas can be purchased in Leakey, a small country store in Vanderpool and in Rocksprings.
The hills can become quite steep and some of the curves can be very tight, this is NOT for beginners. If your riding with someone who doesn't posses the skill to ride Pikes Peak this might be too much as well. Not the elevation of the Rockies but the twist, turns and the grade of the road will be very similar. This ride is a nice workout. I rode my Yamaha Warrior 1700 on this trip but my 900 Vulcan Custom would have made the trip just fine so a muscle cruiser is not a must but will make taking some of the steep climbs a little easier. The road condition is excellent but no shoulder the vast majority of the ride and not a lot of pull off areas for photo opportunities so a GoPro or similar mounted camera would be great for taking your photos. Take your time, enjoy the ride and above all be safe.

I lived in Houston,TX all my life and have been checking reviews for the best rides in the southeast.I ride mostly east into beautiful Louisiana, and sometimes north tx around Lake Livingston and it's neighboring towns,but nothing could have prepared me for what I seen,experienced during our ride through the TX hill country aka "3 Sisters".This ride had it all,a whole lot of beauty topped with a whole lot of excitement,topped with a side of tranquility.Just know the roads are to be respected,and not for the novice and the road signs are your friends.It would be a shame if you don't start this ride in Kerrville just so you can take FM39 to see a most wonderful route along side of the river.This road is not considered part of the 3 sisters (FM335,336,337) ,but it damn well should've been..FM 335,336,337 (3 sisters),all have their on unique qualities that make them stand away from the rest,even the connecting roads were great. The little towns and people were great during our 3 day stay in the hill country.We did'not get to see (Stone Hinge),the motorcycle museum,or Utopia.We stayed in the "Medina Hight Point Resort",I give it and the people 5 stars..I could go on and about this trip,or why I didn't want to go home,but it would surely bore you.Just know this,I have the best ride in the country in my back yard,and I didn't even know it..What I do know is,I will take full advantage of this ride for the rest of my days,and I recommend you do too..

After dodging the storms that hit the area to get here, this was everything that I expected and more. Although this is very different from any place I have ridden before the beauty here was remarkable. The only drawback was the lack of services on the route. We spent 5 days here and covered every road around, hit some of the local watering holes, the people of south Texas went out of their way to make sure we were having a great time. What I liked the most was that we were able to relax without cell or Internet service. It made for an absolute relaxing vacation. When you ride this area you most have an open mind and see the beauty that is here. The big ranchs that cover this area have some very exotic animals, we saw giraffes, kangaroos, wallaby, elk, and more different kinds of deer than I can count. We will be back to do this ride again.

I got into a bit of trouble with a cattle guard placed on a decreasing radius turn on 336 coming but thankfully there was no oncoming traffic to worry about so I was able to recover with only cows to watch my embarrassment. Twisted Sisters has earned its reputation as one of the premier motorcycle routes in the nation in my book. I hope its popularity doesn't end up spoiling it!

This is a "must ride". I suggest hitting these roads from both directions and don't be to strict on your route. We rode these over two days and even one day hit Bandera looped east to Boerne, north to Fredricksburg (great for lunch) west to Kerrville then started 336 from the north off of 41 heading south to Leakey. When you get back to Leakey be sure to stop at Frio Canyon Motorcycle Shop about 1/4 mile east on 337. Some suggest a stop at Garner State Park but we found it crowded and the water was not clean. A run to Bandera is well worth it as well. Gas, food, lodging and beverages can all be found there.

The wife and I rode the "Sisters" in October of 2010. We were in the area for 4 full riding days and really needed a couple more to get it all taken in.

We had both been riding for a little over 2 ½ years. I had done around 25,000 miles at the time and the wife might have had a 1,000 and we had both been through the motorcycle safety course. She had done due diligence in going to the parking lots and practicing and done open road time. I was a little skeptical of her riding these roads but she wanted to. So with guarded reluctance I agreed.

The "Sisters" were a blast although I felt a little •cheated• in the fact we rode the roads entirely at the posted speed limits or below. So the twists and turns were not near the experience I would have liked but still it was a great time.

Highway 16 was a scarry thing for me for her with her limited riding experience. We made a dry run in the Suburban before attempting it on the bikes. After the dry run, for two days I repeatedly gave her every opportunity to opt out of making the ride. I thought the road was way out of her experience level but I kept this little tidbit to myself. My gentle dissuasion was to no avail and the ride was a go. Made the trip without a bobble. It is not a trip for the faint of heart if your experience and saddle time is limited. It is a must ride if you and yours are up to it. It is also very helpful (necessary in my opinion) to have communication set. Relieves "MUCHO" anxiety.

Found another great road for scenery and just a fun ride. The "Old San Antonio Highway or Old #9" going north off of Highway 473 east of comfort. It comes out on Highway 290 east and south of Fredericksburg. Very Scenic ride. Found this road by mistake. Was on an outing trying to find Luckenbach and turned too quick. Was a great mistake.

We missed the museum on this trip and a couple of other things we wanted to do. Great places to eat in and around Kerrville. She is wanting to go back. This time with the added goal of taking pictures of all of the beautiful and expensive Ranch Gates fronting all of the Working and Game Hunting Ranches. Also have a new Drift HD movie camera I want to have working for the Sisters and other great roads.

I took a trip this past Saturday and finally rode most talked about route in Texas. The Sisters did not disappoint! The cattle guards on 336 did not bother me as predicted but there were 2 sections on 336 that had recently been redone leaving a bunch of gravel on the road. Other than that the rode was great. 335 and 337 were my favorite. Lots of sharp corners, canyon wall on one side drop off on the other. Scenery was amazing. Will be heading that way again next month!

Awesome scenery, ride, etc. Not a lot of opportunities for gas or snacks. Bring water and fill up at every opportunity.

My wife is a novice rider (1 year ~1500 miles), she did fine -- just followed the advisory speed signs.

Did come around a curve into some soccer ball sized rock fall. At the advisory speed of 25 mph, no problem. I could see we're someone carving it at 45 or so would have been in trouble.

Ride safe!

Rode the three sisters today with my brother. Fantastic ride. Temps started at 82 and by the end of the ride was at 97. Roads were all in great shape. Roadwork along RR337 between Leakey and Campwood.

This was pure fun!!!!! Romantic, majestic, and thrilling. Ace café was excellent and Museum nostalgic. I recommended A peace of Heaven Rv and cabins. Perfect location for the ride and can accommodate a group of 30 plus RVs. Have fun but gas up when you can! Note: Frio Canyon motorcycle shop doesn't open till 10.

my first ever long distance ride and my friends chose the 3 sisters!
We did 850 miles in less than 2 days. While i'm sore like never before, it was by far totally worth it! Definately not for the amatuer though. i was fortunate to go with experienced riders who gave me great advice ahead of time. If you're thinking about trying it out- stop thinking, get on your bike and do it! i only wish we'd had stopped to take in some of the scenery, still the curves, elevation changes and BEAUTIFUL weather was awesome. Running in a pack makes it even cooler.
i was told i'm now an official biker since i survived.

I did the Three Sisters riding mid-week during a Texas hot July. Left Kerrville before dawn headed south on Hwy 16 to Medina. Rode all three ladies, then backtracked to Hwy 39 and returned to K'ville following the Guadalupe by way of
Hunt and Ingram. Wore the chicken strips plumb off my new tires. Great ride. Can be a little unsettling for the novice rider.

Did the 3 sisters, 1 at a time, then all three together, they were a great ride, it was better doing the 3 together. They seam to have done this before, it was like they fed off each other. They did a number on me also, WOW those were some women.

3/12/11 My riding buddy and I rode from Juntion, TX down 377 to 41 then south on 335 to 337 east to Leakey, Tx then north on 335 to 41. The East on 41 to FM 1340 east to 39 then 27 to Kerrville. We ate in Kerrville then headed south on 16 to 337 west back to 335 then headed north to 41 west then north on 377 back to Junction. We rode from 6:30 am to 7:30 pm for a total of 335 miles on Saturday. It was an amazing ride. Temp's ranged in the morning from mid 50's to upper 70's mid day. At the Frio Canyon Motorcycle Shop we stopped and talked with a group of South Texas American Legion riders riding the sisters also. When we arrived back in Junction we were tired,,, but couldn't wipe the smiles from our faces. I suggest any avid rider who wants a day of amazing riding and site seeing,, Ride the Three Twisted Sisters and Hwy 16 from Kerrville down to 377. A Truly Great Day of Riding.

A friend and I rode to Leakey from Houston on a Friday via multiple backroads so it was an eight hour trip. We cheked into a small cabin area called Cypress Frio Waters and went into Leakey for dinner and then went and got some sleep. On the second day we had breakfast, Rode the Three Sisters, counter-clockwise, had lunch and again rode the Three Sisters, clockwise, and called it a day. On the third day we returend to Houston. What a RIDE. The trip was just over 1016 miles with Great weather. It's now going to be a Bi-Annual event in my book. If you have a bike you really need to take this ride.

Excellent ride. My girlfriend and I rode 337 and 336 while in the area for Octoberfest 2010. We only had time for two legs of the run, but are already planning an April 2011 trip back to stay in Leakey and run the full route. This route is not for the beginner. Get familiar with your equipment, be safe, and ya, watch out for the cows...

Did the 3 Sisters once, a year & a half ago, and that just wasn't enough. I gotta go do 'em again soon. My favorite part was when one of four Motards tried to pass us; that's when they discovered that a bike is only as fast as its rider. The rest stop at Frio Canyon was alright too.

Danny and I rode the 3 sisters for his 65th birthday today, Memorial Day!!! It was gorgeous and fun!! Fuel up in Leaky, on 41 just east of RR336, or possibly in CampWood. My new Harley Softail Classic with its stage 1 performance upgrade was a wonder. I have been riding for 2 years and rode the sisters hard today. I advise you to carry lots of water if you ride during our hot season.

I was introduced to the "Three Twisted Sisters" by my Goldwing Club in 1995. Have ridden them every year since. My favorite is the roller coaster section of 335 heading from south to north. Also better views of the river and the canyon when going north. Great road, great views and Spring is the time to go when the wildflowers are out. Will be taking a group up there in April for our annual visit. When you're done riding the Sisters and you want to unwind, head south of Leakey and take 1050 over to Hwy. 16. Nice sweepers and nice views for a laid back ride. Enjoy them all.

Me and the wife started at Fredericksburg Labor day weekend 2009. Rode three sisters on Friday. The scenery was absolutly beautiful. Steep hills and sharp turns were abundant. I've Lived in Texas for 50 years and never knew how beautiful the hill country could be. When going from Fredericksburg it's a full days ride. Can't wait to go back!!!

Rode the Three Sisters two weeks ago (1 Jun 09). Awesome vistas with breathtaking sierras and valleys all over. There are various river crossings at multiple points. Needless to say that the Roller Coaster (335) and the Twisted Sister (337) are exhilarating but very dangerous at the same time, not the type of road trip for beginners or easily distracted folks. Coming from Comal County, the ride was a full day affair. I look forward to one day doing it again !!!

Went to the Hill Country March 7-12, 2009. I drive an 883 Sporster HD. Stayed @ D’Rose. The weather turned on us. It was cold & raining. Thank God for no accidents. We had a great time despite the cold & rain. We will defiantly plan another trip to the Hill Country to ride the Three Sisters again, only next time in dry conditions so that we can challenge our bikes and ourselves. The roads will give you a run for your money & not to mention the views of the hillside as an extra bonus.
