Written DirectionsThis route starts and ends in Denton, and is one of my favorite Saturday rides! Heading north out of Denton on 2164 you hit some nice curves. Left on 455 all the way to Forestburg. This is North Texas Hill Country! Some peg scrapping turns as you head out of Bolivar. North out of Forestburg on 677 will take you within a stones throw of the Red River. The ride north out of Saint Jo takes you to a beautiful view as you drop into the river valley. Heading east on 373 parallels the river, passes by the Red River Motorcycle Trails near Bulcher. Nice smooth winding roads, hills, and a crazy experience driving up to and through the wind power generation farm. Munester has some great food. The trip back from there is highway cruisin, heading east on Hwy 82 to Gainesville, south back to Denton.
SceneryNice hills, beautiful countryside. As you approach Munester from the NW you go through a sci-fi like wind power generation farm. There are some really nice views into the valleys as you get into Montague county, and an awesome view as you cruise out north of Saint Jo ... the ride north from Saint Jo back around to Munester is great!
Drive EnjoymentThis trip has a nice mix of straight-aways on low rolling hills, some peg dragging S curves and long sweeping curves. A great chance to not only power-up out of the curves, but also do some serious flat out driving! 90% of the road is well maintained but through Wise and Cooke counties can get a little rough
Tourism OpportunitiesNot much, until you get to Munester. Plan lunch or dinner there at either The Center or Rohmers.

Stopped at Doc's Grill for lunch in Muenster. Pretzel bread makes for a great sandwich.
