http://www.edelmon.netThis route takes you through most of the Big Bend area without going into the park. Recommended Stops are the San Solomon Springs in Balmorhea, the McDonald Observatory outside of Fort Davis, and the Terlingua Ghost Town.Some of this route goes through the Davis Mountains as well as through the Rio Grande river canyon. It's extremely hot and I don't recommend making this trip between June and October unless you are used to the extreme heat of the desert.The second part of the trip takes you across the Pecos river and into Langtry where Judge Roy Bean held court.Finally the last part of the route takes you on Twisted Sister #1. This is an extremely fun, yet technical road that is actually part of another ride I will add later.

This is a motorcycle ride in the state of Texas. This motorcycle route has 5 scenery characteristics and other road conditions to help you plan your road trip. This motorcycle map was created by UncleTerry in June. Click here to see other Motorcycle Roads by UncleTerry
