Hill country, Texas, has hills, not mountains. Big vistas that are interesting, though do not expect something from Colorado. The actual part of the road that is the backbone is pretty short. We were expecting miles of curves and vistas. Left us thinking "is that...More

Texas is not all flat...this surprising vista and endless sky make a great picnic setting. Once you've seen the views you can go home pleased.

It's not a long drive, but it's spectacular with distant, unspoiled views of Texas Hill Country. Not to be missed.
