Scenic route in Texas

The Three Sisters route starts in Medina, TX. From Medina take RR337 (at this point you are starting on "The Three Sisters") heading west. Take RR337 west until you come up on the town of Leakey. At Leakey, go north on US 83 for a just about a mile and look for RR336 on the left. Take a left onto RR336 which will head you north. Continue north on RR336 until you meet Texas 41. The first part of the The Three Sisters route ends here.

The first Sister we encounter is RR 337, which starts at the north edge of Medina. Following it west, we pass many beautiful ranches. As we move from the relatively straight stretches through the fields and into the first of many twisty sections. After about 20 miles, we come to a “T” junction at the community of Vanderpoole. Turn right on to Highway 187 for a mile and turn left which brings us back to RR 337 again. The RR 337 road follows canyons and climbs over mountains and has many tight twisty curves, We turn left and head for Leakey and the next Sister, Ranch Road 336. Sister 336 twists more on this leg, going up and over a pretty typical Hill Country hill, with lots of quick turns before descending into the Little Dry Frio Creek Valley.

After Leakey on 337 then it’s left on Highway 83 for a short distance, and then left on the next Sister, RR 336. This stretch starts off pretty straight, but then bucks and snorts and twists and turns in an effort to throw us like a bull in a Bandera rodeo. But we use good judgment and take her on with a calm head and a steady throttle hand—fast enough to be fun, but in control and ready for the unexpected. This is whitetail deer country, and they will pop up at the most inopportune times, like in the middle of a downhill, off camber, decreasing radius turn! After about 10 miles, 336 straightens up and, having lost a lot of her spirit, continues on to terminate at Highway 41.
