The drive down this road does not make you feel like you are having to drive but wanting to drive. Such beautiful scenery.

We were a little disappointed in the drive. There is no place to pull off and enjoy the view because trees obstruct what view there is. There is a pull-off, but you cannot enjoy the view because of vegetation along the fence. The Hill Country...More

Drove this stretch on the way to San Antonio and wasn’t impressed. I didn’t find it very scenic and enjoyable. It might be better on a motorcycle, was that special in my truck.

Living nearby this is an excellent place for a visit and the mountains are beautiful. There is a roadside picnic area on the north side for parking for a picnic. Watch out for the busy highway nearby and kids or pets don't get loose.

I have been driving this road on a regular basis for years and am still fascinated with the view. Definitely stop at the lookout on the north side of the road and soak up the view, as it's fantastic!.
