Written Directions

The Three Sisters route starts in Medina, TX. From Medina catch RR337 (at this point you are starting on "The Three Sisters") heading west (right). Take RR337 west until you come up on the town of Leakey. At Leakey, go north on US 83 for a just about a mile and look for RR336 on the left. Take a left onto RR336 which will head you north. Continue north on RR336 until you meet Texas 41 and at this point you will want to turn left in order to head west. Go west for 15 miles or so and you will find RR335 on the left. Take a left (east) and get on RR335 and drive south down to Camp Wood where you can take a left on to RR337 and finish out the loop when you hit Leakey again.

Scenery

A ride through this part of Texas will most certainly change your view of my beloved state. You will ride amongst scenery as good as it gets, along clear rivers, through very twisty mountain type curves amidst real Texas Ranches. With million dollar vistas and cool clear waters along with friendly folks and knowing that you are riding the best this large state can offer, makes for great riding... Nueces River (pronounced New-Aces) on Ranch Rd 335

Drive Enjoyment

This route is mainly very twisty passing over large hills and between not many gas stations. This roller coaster ride will no doubt blow you away. The road is not heavily traveled, but beware as sharp turns have certainly taken many motorcyclist down. Also, although the surface is mostly in very good condition, always watch for loose gravel, deer and slow moving locals heading back to their ranch ... often a much slower pace than we're zippin by at.

Tourism Opportunities

This route isn't going to be know for its "Roadside Amenities" as much as it is known for its scenery and road quality. There are some very nice pull-outs, stop and enjoy the long vistas. Gas up in Leakey as there are not too many gas stations to choose from and where there is a very good motorcycle shop. For a refreshing summertime swimming hole try the Frio River (frio meaning cold!!!). Note from a recent MotorcycleRoads.com visitor about this route: "Hwy 16 between Kerrville and Bandera is not for beginners! Due to recent accidents, weekend police patrol has increased a great deal. Hwy 173 may be a better route between Kerrville & Bandera."

Great Route... Of course you need to be very careful... if you go down, either you die by going over a cliff or by hitting the memorial white cross from someone else who has died there before... not some roads for novices...

Took this ride on my Wing this Sept. 08 and found it to be everything I expected. The scenery is absolutely spectacular. The two sisters that are made up of 337 and 335 are the most challenging. Be aware of possible gravel in sharp turns and rocks fallen onto the road. Do not make this run at night , you can't see the deer in the road! If you are an experienced rider and you haven't run the Sisters, you haven't run the best that Texas has to offer!

A group of the 8 riders in our family (including the wife and I) set out on a road trip from North Central Texas to "do" the 3 Twisted Sisters in late April 2013. We stayed in Kerrville after arriving in the area, and then early Saturday morning we took 16 south to Medina and began on RR 337. They were all on newer bikes (we ride a '93 FLSTC)and my bro-in-laws and cousin and LOVE to ride fast. We, being a little more laid-back, like to take things smooth and easy and averaged about 25 MPH slower than they did on the long sweeps and straightaways. We often found ourselves alone riding in some of the prettiest countrysides in Texas and were also passed by some of the fastest riders in Texas who just wanted to see how fast they could find one of the 10 MPH curves. Be sure to stop at the Frio Canyon Motorcycle Stop for a burger and t-shirt. We had a great time and if you have the time after you do the whole 150 mile circuit, take 83 north out of Leakey, catch 39 east, and see some more beautiful sites along the different branches of the South Fork of the Guadalupe River. This stretch isn't considered part of the 3 Twisted Sisters route, but it ought to be. It is so green there in the spring, you'd think you were in East Texas. Word of advice: Don't do this ride if you have not been riding consistently for a few years - these roads are VERY deceptive and you could find yourself impaled on a white cross dedicated to someone else who didn't respect the road and their abilities (or lack thereof). Gas up EVERY chance you get, and think of investing in a Reda Can - a one gallon gas can that can be stored in a saddlebag. You may not need it, but some poor rider who ran out of gas you find stranded will certainly appreciate the kindness. Also - part of this ride (parts of RR 335 and RR 336) are in an "Open Range" county and livestock are not behind barb wire. "Open Range" in Texas means this: In a "non-Open Range" county, if you hit livestock - it is the livestock owner's fault. In an "Open Range" county, if you hit a livestock... it is YOUR fault. So, if you have at least moderate experience (a few years at least) and at least moderate skills, go ride the most entertaining and beautiful route in Texas. Peace >
