If you are an avid rider, seeing the sites is important to you. Being able to see the sights can be a great adventure especially when you are on a bike. We have put a list together of the top scenic trails in Texas. Texas is a big state, which leave you with plenty to see. Just make sure before you head out that you and your motorcycle are completely covered. Motorcycle insurance is always necessary.
Starting off in East Texas there are a few trails for you to try. If you enjoy lakes and all the scenery that they have to offer, then the Lake Livingston Loop is for you. This ride is for the adventurous with its narrow roads and wildlife. It covers about 100 miles and you can stop and enjoy the state park if you desire. Heading east from Port Arthur, another great ride is along the Gulf of Mexico and entering into Louisiana. This is a great ride, but be careful a few spots still have hurricane damage. Also be on the lookout for the alligators crossing the road.
Heading into Southern Texas, there are two main rides to discover. The first is the Canyon Lake Loop. Straight in the heart of Texas hill country, this 50 mile ride will take you around the lake and surrounding cities. Be sure to stop and enjoy this gorgeous lake. Another great trail ride in hill country is the Three Sisters trail. This one sounds sweet but can be very dangerous. Lookout for the gravel and sharp turns. You listened to me and got your motorcycle insurance, right? Also, make sure you obey the speed limit. This is a cop hangout.
Heading a little further north into true Texas hill country there are even more great trails to check out. Following along the Llano River, this first trail is great to take in the sights. This ride is about 75 miles and takes you into Round Rock. Along the way the most interesting place to visit is the Longhorn Cavern. I am not going to ruin the surprise for you, just make sure you check it out. The final ride on our list is touring the Hill Country State Parks. This is the longest trail on the list following about 175 miles. This is also a great trail to stop and take in all the beauty of Texas. You should also be conscious and share the road, there are lots of deer who like to come out and play.
We didn’t get everywhere in Texas that we could but you will just have to come discover them for yourself. As always, make sure you are safe out there on the road, protect yourself with cheap motorcycle insurance, and above all else enjoy the view!
