Written Directions

Hwy 39 can be accessed via Hwy 27 west of Kerrville, TX or off of US 83 north of Leakey, TX

Scenery

This road is a relaxing alternative to the "Three Sisters" it is curvy, and fun, yet not technical. The area has numerous horse farms and as you approach Hunt, TX from the west on a weekend you may catch part of a Polo match. The road will cross the Guadalupe River at 90 degree angles. As you roll through the west side of Ingram, TX keep an eye out for "Stone Henge". That's right some guy had a 2/3 replica of the original built, and donated it to the town. There are campgrounds and B&B all along this road, and a near constant view of the river.

Drive Enjoyment

The road is in good condition and is not technical. Some caution should be used when approaching the riverbed. Texas uses a low-water passover system, and taken too fast, you will start out hunting for traction and then having you checks sag from the G-out on the other side.

Tourism Opportunities

There is lodging and restaurants at either end and couple Mom and Pop places along the way.

Great road, Beautiful country. A fair amount of twists and turns as well. Need to watch after rains for water crossings at the low areas but definitely a really nice ride overall

Just rode From Hunt out 39 but I turned south on FM 187 towards Vandpool. Hwy 39 great road follows river valley first part lots of tight twistey turns and many low water crossings then you head up and out of valley where turns are more sweeping..I wouldn't ride this part if there has been heavy rains in area because of low water crossing but otherwise very choice road to ride..
If you do turn south be sure to stop at Lone Star Motorcycle Museum..Great old bikes and I heard the pie is to die for
