Park Road 4 near Buchanan, TX is a fun ~15-miler road, but we sure had to drive far from Fredericksburg to get to it. We rode it during the week so there wasn’t too much traffic, but since it is near Lake Buchanan, it probably gets busy on weekends. When we did head back home, we detoured onto FM-2341 and County road 104/FM-690 where one could see some of the lake. The detailed route (total of ~160 mi) is shown below:
