Written Directions

These directions are pretty detailed ... just print them out and take them with you. Start on by taking 290 west out of Houston. Turn right on 362 in Waller, TX. Some great sweeping curves and hills begin just before 1488 where you turn right. After a few more curves turn left back on to 362. This is a great road with curves, hills, woods, and wide open spaces. A little bumpy as you get close to 105 where you turn left. At Hwy 6 north turn right and be careful as the feeder roads are two way! Exit 3090 just north of Navasota. CAUTION, first timmers need to hold it to 55 MPH max. I have run this road on a Harley soft tail at 55/60 and although I drug the running boards in most of the turns all went well. 3090 runs north to 149 where you will turn right. After more of the same on 149 you will turn left on route 9 in Anderson, TX and then soon after turn left on route 244 for more of this great ride. Take this all the way north to HWY 30. On the other side of 30 is Yankee Tavern. Don't miss it!

Scenery

Quite country side and ranch land. In stark comparison to the hustle and bustle of near by Houston.

Road Quality

Very good two lane black top ... hilly with plenty of curves and rolling hills. This road has most everything you want, tight turns, sweepers, narrow bridges, tunnel like woods, hills and oh yes the Texas Dept. of Public Safety hiding in the weeds.

Special notes: Caution! 3090 is very slick when hot in the summer. Take it slow until you know this road.

Roadside Amenities

Plenty of fuel and eats along the way.

Great ride, low traffic lys of great views. Beware the last 2 miles of 362 is under construction and is now a dirt road.

149 stops at 3090, so you're still on 3090 after you take that left at 149. A great twisty road, but beware decreasing-radius turns.

The road was very good but I was a bit disappointed at the end point. It just stopped in the middle of nowhere. The end point was the Iola Volunteer Fire Department Station. This is the first ride from this website that we have done. Are they supposed to just end like that??

I am from Utah, so I am used to twisty roads, extensive elevation change and incedible scenery. Nothing compares, but this was still a beautiful ride. The description was excellent and spot on. A perfect day on two wheels.

Heed the warnings. This is a fun route but some of the turns on 3090 can fool you. A friend of mine was riding two up and lost control on what seemed to be a not so difficult left curve about 1-2 miles before the turn to Carlos. The road is crowned rather than banked at the curve. Easy to misjudge. Tore up the bike but fortunately they missed the trees and stopped short of the fence. Walked away with only a few scratches.

A nice alternate start: SH249 north, and a quick right onto Huffsmith-Kohrville by the fireworks warehouse. This road changes names twice before it eventually dead-ends into another FM road. Turn left here, and enjoy some relaxing scenery. At 105, turn left, and do the speed limit! Turn right on FM149 and enter the Sam Houston National Forest. This road brings you straight to Andersen.
