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."

Rode the 3 sisters Friday and Saturday October 17th and 18th 2008. What a great ride, the scenery is fantastic. The cattle guards do take away from the ride but not bad. Just slow down a little. Do be careful in the twisties. Our ride captain went down on Saturday. He came over the top of one of the hills to find the road made a sharp right turn. He went off the road and crashed. He will be ok, broken femur and a bruised ego. So be careful and enjoy what I think is the best riding in Tx.

This ride is on my top five for Tx. But since I'm coming from Houston, I don't think I'm going to waste my time on 41 or 336 next time - just up and down 335 and 337. 336 is simply a death wish since cattle and deer freely meander accross it not to mention those damn cattle guards.

This was a really great ride. I have to say, though, that putting the Texas Hill Country in the same league as the Blue Ridge Parkway, Beartooth Pass, or San Juan Parkway is not realistic. Those roads are SPECTACULAR while this one is really, really nice. The road surface is pretty good and the scenery is nice. Trying to put the scenery in the same category as Western North Carolina or the Rockies is just silly, though. Let's be reasonable about how we rate these roads if you want to be taken seriously.
