Here in Texas, we don’t get quite the spectacular foliage that northern states get, but it is still a beautiful time of year. If you want to spend some time enjoying the autumn weather, here are a few fall road trips in Texas you should take.
Devil’s Backbone Scenic Drive
Head north of San Antonio to Hill Country and drive the Devil’s Backbone. The most scenic drive is a 20-mile stretch between Blanco and Wimberley. You can enjoy the rolling hills, cool temperatures, and changing foliage. Plan a stop in Fredericksburg to enjoy the historic downtown and winery.
Ranch Road 337
One of the most scenic drives in Texas is Ranch Road 337 between Leakey and Camp Wood. This winding road twists through the countryside and even crosses through some of the highest points in the area. For a longer drive, add on RR 335 and 336 to complete what is called the Twisted Sisters. Complete your trip with a camping weekend at Garner State Park south of Leakey.
Pineywoods Autumn Trail
If you are looking for a drive that takes you further from home, head to East Texas. Plan your journey to take the 145-mile trip between Athens and Palestine. This beautiful drive is known as the Pineywoods Autumn Trail and has plenty of scenic stops and attractions along the way.
Stop by Grande Truck Center if you’re in need of a new truck to transport you to and from these scenic locations this season.
