Written Directions

Start at the Quiet Valley Ranch south of Kerrville on TX 16. Go north to FM2771 and turn right (east), follow FM2771 to TX 173. Turn right (south) on TX 173 and go not more than one mile to Center Point River Road and turn left (east). Watch for the sign. Follow the River Road to Center Point. The burger/bar/aviary joint (Back Door Pottery) on the right, as you come into civilization, is a fun stop. Anyone of the next three lefts will take you to TX 27, turn right and go east to Comfort. As you come into town watch left for FM 473. Turn left (east) on FM473 and follow it until the good asphalt ends. FM473 will turn hard right but the route continues STRAIGHT (north) onto Old #9. Follow Old #9 until you pass Grapetown settlement, then watch for Luckenbach-Grapetown Road to the right as you come up the hill out of Grapetown. When you find Luckenbach-Grapetown Road, take a right (east) and take it all the way till it T's into Luckenbach Road at which point you will take a right (southeast) and head into the route's end point - Luckenbach, TX.

Scenery

Route follows Turtle Creek to the Guadalupe River. Then along the Guadalupe to Comfort. Then up Block Creek to the headwaters of Grape Creek and right/ east downstream to Luckenbach. Expect to see what one normally sees when following old roads along drainages, tree tunnels and low water crossings, fields and pastures. There are no vast purple mountain vistas, just interesting stuff up close and personal. This is ranch country, there are several historic scenes and stops. Watch for the markers. Be ready for exotic and native wildlife of all kinds.

Drive Enjoyment

All paved, smooth single lane road with winding roads and some fairly nice turns and inclines. Keep in mind there is almost no shoulders and limited pull offs for camera ops.



Local Cemetery, Mr H's Homestead

Tourism Opportunities

From Kerville to Comfort is quite boring, however, once on 473 it gets real nice. If you go on during the sun set make sure to check out the bat tunnel show. Be aware that the Grapetown rd. street sign is not there anymore so once you pass Grapetown school rd. the next one is where you turn right. The "T" intercection is hwy 1376.
Happy trails!
