View Full Version : Day loop out of Junction...
08-05-2009, 01:51 PM
I looking to make a 2009 trek to the Hill country
and am looking for a good paved only loop to run
out of Junction...
This is what I have planned.
Any ideas or good roads I missed?
Two state parks...stonehenge...bike museum...plenty scenery...
I've got a sports camera ordered to mount on the bike for this trip...

Looks pretty good to me.

Pretty ambitious. A long day for sure but you would definitely want to be done before dark to avoid the deer issue.

Your missing 337 if you want to run all 3 sisters CampWood, Leakey, Vanderpool

I did the 3's last year so I looking for different roads this time down...but I had to included my favs
"in the opposite direction of course"
If darkness gets upon me I'll hop over to 10 towards to end of my loop to
get back to Junction...
Maybe the traffic will keep me safe...
never thought I'd say that....
Another bail out point would be at the K marker. I tend to stop for pictures a lot. If I rode that loop I may be close on daylight at that point. A quick left on 39 and a right on 83 would get me back.

Sorry to break the news, but if you stop at the museum in Vanderpool you won't do even 1/3 of your ambitious itinerary.
Unless you do it "Chevy Chase at the Grand Canyon" style.

Looks like you're hitting all the high points :clap: The only change I could see making is cutting out the bracketville loop. 674 is a fine road, but the return from bracketville to camp wood via 334 is nothing special, and your missing the best part 0f 55. The extra hour or 2 you would gain would allow some quality time on 16 or 337. Even so, you should be able to do the entire route as listed
if you leave junction early and eat lunch at the museum in a day. A real adventure would include the road between 335 and 336, it may not be paved and is pretty rough in some places but if a K1100LT can do it.......

Ｉjust went through Junction on I10. There's a greasy spot on the highway about every 100' where some vehicle creamed bambi. I think I'd sooner ride highway 90 between Del Rio and Sanderson.
