Title: The Three Sisters (AKA The Twisted Sisters)- Ranch Roads 335, 336, & 337a
State: Texas


Road Length: 155 Miles

Cruise Date: Sunday Feb 28th

Houston Rollout: 10am


The Three Sisters

Road 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
Road Quality:
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 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.




Huge ranch just north of Campwood on Ranch Road 335
Roadside Amenities:
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!!!).

From Kerrville, heading south on Texas 16. At Medina you'll need to catch RR337 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.

SOB!!! That's real close to me. Beutiful country to be sure. I love living in San Antonio because of how close I am to the Hill Country.

Now you have me thinking about extending my stateside vacation 1 day just so I can make the cruise. I'm fly on the 28th Feb.

I actually may make this event, but I live in New Braunfels so I may need to meet up with the pack somewhere.

I am interested also. I was thinking of bringing the wife and kids, but I don't think the boys would dig that long of a car ride. We will see. Looks like a nice route. I haven't been up that way and I have lived here for a little over a year now.

I don't think you will be disappointed with the cruise. The speed limit is 80 in that area so we will be having some fun if you know what I mean. With all the twist's should be fun. :shhh:

Just gota keep an eye out for the cops. They are fairly good at setting up in tricky to spot location. Not as bad as I10 between SA and Houston, but we'll need Brid-dogs to sniff them out for the rest of us.

I would love to go a car meet, cruise, or track day some time. Nothing ever really going on in Northern New Mexico. Or within a couple hours. I'm in Santa Fe. I might have to take a road trip some time to check out an event.

One at the dealership works for me. Htown09 is the time and place good for you.
Not familiar with that place. You guys decide on a place to meet up for San Antonio/Austin and we can meet you along the way. Send me your cell # @ [email protected]. I am working on the route and will most likely do a test run on Friday, if anyone wants to join me on the test run send me an email.
