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."

Had heard and read about these roads for years, so my expectationswere very high, which usually sets you up for a let down. Man, not in this case! the roads were amazing. The scenery was absolutely breathtaking. The stops along the way were nothing but great food, and very biker-friendly folks. Based out of Koyote ranch...a little pricey, but great food, rooms, and service.

Have ridden the Sisters on three trips this spring. The ride from Kerrville on Hwy 16 to Medina and then west on 337 to Leakey was as much fun as the Sisters - and much more challenging. Take Hwy 39 to Hwy 83 from Kerrville for a nice ride to Leakey if you want to avoid the 1st gear, straight uphill switchbacks on 16.

I HAVE RIDDEN THE "3 SISTERS" SEVERAL TIMES. THE HILL COUNTRY IS A NICE PLACE TO RIDE. BE SURE AND STOP AT THE "LONE STAR MOTORCYCLE MUSEUM" IN VANDERPOOL, IF YOU GET A CHANCE. THEY HAVE A NICE COLLECTION OF OLD MOTORCYCLES AND A RESTAURANT INSIDE THE MUSEUM. GOOD BURGERS AND COLD SODA POP. TAKE CARE & RIDE SAFE!
