Written Directions

Start in Montgomery, Tx at intersection 105 and 149. Head East on 149 toward Anderson. Continue through Anderson on 149 to 3090.

Scenery

Tx Hwy 149 winds through the Southern Edge of the Sam Houston National Forest. The National Forest is known for its tall, majestic Pine Trees. The Pine forest eventually turns to hilly farmland and the open fields along this route are covered with Bluebonnets and Indian Paintbrush flowers during the Spring. Beautiful German Gingerbread style Court House in the center of Anderson.

Drive Enjoyment

Tx Hwy 149 West of Montgomery is sedate for a couple of miles before the curves and twisties sneak up on you. No stop signs or red lights along this route. There are lots of big, sweeping curves but there are some very sharp curves which are deceptive. Its best to get experience on this road before going too fast. The road in Montgomery County is very smooth blacktop but entering Grimes County, it becomes a rougher and louder road, but decent quality none-the-less. The last few miles before Anderson are more hilly than curvy but still a nice stretch of road.

Tourism Opportunities

There are lots of cafes and restaurants along the route in Montgomery, Richards and Anderson. Also plenty of antique shops. Gas is available in these three cities also. Before getting to Richards is a Biker Stop, 'Drifters' and past Anderson a few miles is a nice Bar & Grill called 'Yankees.'

This route is great for beginners. It has long sweeping curves. I like to ride fast and was able to hold speeds I should not of. That being said, there are no sharp turns other than the few in Richards town. I loved the ride. I took it all the way out to 3090 South and took that to Hyw 6. If your coming in from 105 Headed West, take Lonestar Pkwy up to meet 149. Turn right and enjoy.

I live in the Woodlands and this is my favorite escape route out of town and takes me directly to the celebrated FM3090. The section of road thru the Sam Houston National forest is really the fun factor for this route.
