This route starts out relatively level and open and enters some lush meadows paralleling Texas Creek. The road “ends” in the vicinity of the Texas Lakes, passing numerous primitive camping sites along the way. Beyond this point it becomes a true 4wd with low range required.

This route was one of my first 4wd experiences and I still have fond memories! Years ago, we were able to proceed well beyond the lakes to a high mountain cirque with some incredible vistas of Taylor Park and the Reservoir. Watch for wildlife and wildflowers in the meadows near the creek.
