IMPORTANT MOTORCYCLE ROAD CONSTRUCTION UPDATE (posted Sep 2020): Current road construction plans along Ranch Road 337 includes bridge construction that will make a portion of 337 completely blocked at Mill Creak between Medina and Vanderpool Texas. Read the Important Three Sisters Motorcycle Road Construction Update for more information!

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...

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."

My wife and I rode this route on Wednesday on our Heritage Softail Classic and it was a beautiful ride. Lots of twists and turns with plenty of steep climbs. Not for the novice rider. Highly recomend this as a must ride.

Wife and i of 45 years decided we needed to do this before more time passes. Boy was it enjoyable. The " sisters " has more beauty than one deserves. Sadly there was a fatality on 336. I cannot stress enough that the twisted sisters is not for the novice. If you don't have a bunch of seat time, stay off it. Saw quite a few of "kids" on the crotch rockets and am amazed there is not more fatalities. Anyway was very enjoyable and planning on going back for some of the other rides in the hill country.

Loved the ride. Some turns can be tight but not too difficult. What sets this route apart from most others is the length of the ride.
