337 Loop

If you have ever driven from Pa’ia to Hana then that journey should give you an idea of what to expect by taking this route, sans the Pacific Ocean. Here is the way we prefer to make this “loop” and it is pretty simple. Grab some apple pie and strudel in Medina and head west […]

Bandera-Concan Loop

This is another route that will take you through some terrific hills and across some fabulous river crossings, but instead of exploring the Guadalupe River this trail takes you to the fabulously frosty Frio River. This is the route that you want to take to become familiar with the camping spots and most of the […]

Beer Garden Loop

Ok, we certainly do not suggest that you drive while under the influence, but if you have a designated driver this day trip could be a real hoot. Start out at any of the beer gardens in Fredericksburg and have a light lunch. Presumably you are wise enough to know whether it is advisable to […]

Boerne-Comfort-Bandera Loop

Brady Loop

This loop primarily features sites located on the west side of Brady in proximity to the Brady Lake/Brady Creek Reservoir.

Burnet-Lampasas Loop

This is another easy trip and it will take you to Lampasas (which is in the northeast portion of the Hill Country) and back to Burnet, durnit, learnit. The Texas Legislature named Burnet the Bluebonnet Capital of Texas and the surrounding area is indeed a great place to view wildflowers during the season. To begin, […]

Camp Wood Loop

Here is another drive through some beautiful scenery, and this one takes you to the far western edge of the Hill Country and the Nueces and Frio River Basins where you can find a few more campgrounds and outfitters for outdoor fun. The eastern portion of this loop covers many of the same roads that […]
