Written Directions

You can start the road in Hutto, TX which is northeast of Austin. Head south on 1660 out of Hutto. 1660 will dead end into highway 95 take 95 north road through Taylor,TX to Circleville, TX then turn east on road 1331. turn north on Granger Dam rd this will dead end into road 971 turn west back to highway 95 in granger, tx. then proceded south on highway 95 to TX 29. this will take you into Georgetown, TX

Scenery

This route while longer features many curves while most of it being nearby either creeks and lakes. The 1660 segment has some twisties with views of farms trees and brushey creek. 1660 road quality is ok but watch the shoulders as road not always even on shoulder. the 95 segemnt is straight and good roads, the route around lake granger has great views of lake granger including a long drive over the dam itself. the segment along highway 29 has many trees farms and older farm builings to view is curvy and follows the San Gabriel river.

Drive Enjoyment

This route has lots of curves except for the highway 95 portions. Lots of creeks rivers and a lake. I would use caution on the 1660 portion as during a few corners the shoulder asfault is warped uneven, stay to the center. otherwise good pavment without pothols

Tourism Opportunities

You can stop in Taylor for BBQ at Louis Miller BBQ which has been on TV more than once for its great BBQ, (closed sundays expect long lines on saturday) also Taylor Cafe features ok BBQ in i believe 150 year old saloon nearby the rail. There are a few areas nearby lake granger to get off and strech if need be. one full park just before ($$$) the dam, there is a senic view point at the dam itself, another area where you could get a nature walk in at the US army corps of engineers wildlife preserve( look east of dam when mid dam) and one last park that is usually free and unattended after you turn on 971. Most of the nature areas around lake granger are free, the one swim park i believe costs money to enter

Motorcycle Road Additional info

while this route hardly competes with the many hill country routes west of austin, still a great route on the northeast side of Austin!

Very nice ride! Unfortunately my phone was out of juice and I didn't have a map, so I missed the turn off of 95 which would have taken me around the lake. So I only saw the first half! lol
But the section from Hutto down to 95 was curvy and scenic, and I'll definitely go back to finish the journey.
