Combining the ride to Park Road 4 and Lime Creek Road makes sense coming from Fredericksburg. Unfortunately, it takes >50 mi to get there and to get back. Whew, it wore us out, killer ride. The total mileage was only 250 mi, but it felt like we rode 350 mi instead. Why? The area of Texas combining these two roads is very populated so there is a lot of stop and go traffic. Plus being in a new highly populated area, we were always on the lookout for our next turn. Some of the roads that were very enjoyable were:
1) Park Road 4 with Inks State Park nearby – some fun curves
2) RR-1431 – a fast highway but had some fun curves if you are not behind a slow moving vehicle
3) Lime Creek Road/ RM-2769 – curvy with some fun sharp curves BUT located in neighborhoods so had to watch out for cross traffic. RM-2769 had construction at very end.
