From 288, take 1462 West. Travel 6.3 miles and turn right onto CR 42. OR You can take 1462 West and turn right on 521. Travel North 2.5 miles and turn left at the church. BAM! enjoy.
I really like how shaded this road is. There are some farm animals and open fields. This isnt the ideal landscape but its different in a great way that I really enjoyed the scene when I rode it.
The road was repaved pretty recently as of May 2015. It has great road condition but sometimes the local farm animals find their way onto it. Also, because of the trees so close and overhanging the road, sometimes limbs may be in the way.
There is nothing to stop and see or take a break on this road. Its mostly residents and farms. Of course its only 9 miles too.

Skydive Spaceland is right next door if you want to go skydiving. That's how I found this road. Cow creek road is just down the way as well and that's a decent ride.
Thank you for posting this route (CR 42). I wouldn’t have known about this gem of a ride had it not been for this posting… Let’s get the particulars out of the way. This is not a route to ride 30+ miles for. However, if you happen to be in the area or want to tack on some extra miles while riding to Brazos Bend State Park, you really shouldn’t miss out on this road.
It is definitely not to be ridden fast as there are homes along the road and a few blind curves that the “locals” could easily take wide. I rode it on a Friday afternoon (during COVID 19), and past one vehicle. I don’t’ think this road is travelled frequently by anyone other than residents. Most of it is shady, which will help with the Texas heat. Short routes like this help brake up the miles and miles of straight roads around our area.
Thank you for suggesting this route and ride safe…
