Start north of Smithville at Loop 230 and TX-71. Head north on 230/FM-153. In a quarter mile, go right to stay on FM-153. If you are coming East on Park Road 1 from Bastrop, turn left onto FM-153. FM-153 has some curves and hills and lots of deer. The road ends at TX-77; head south to La Grange and pick up La Grange-to-Belleville for more riding.

Scenery

Fine road through Central Texas ranchland with occasional sweeper curves.

Drive Enjoyment

Good pavement for a Farm-to-Market, some sweepers, little traffic, no known enforcement. Curvy places are fun if you push it but be careful - there's deer out there.
