I've ridden this route quite a few times as it is close to the house. Two up and single there are sections that can be fun with some sweeping curves but we are in the Houston area so it's flat. There a a few off shoot roads that can be fun with a few tight twisties too. Sometimes it pays to 'explore' and look at a map first. Hit a few dead ends but it is a great area with some urbanization and a lot f farm land. Steven F Austin Park is a great place to camp. We've had the Scouts there a few times.
