Two route options: the 30-mile is a relatively flat out-and-back from Utopia to Lost Maples State Park. The 50-mile route is a challenging loop via Vanderpool and Leakey. Meet in Utopia and park opposite the Lost Maples Café (please do not obstruct local businesses).
Either take Hwy 90 west to Sabinal and then take 187 north to Utopia or take Texas 16 to Bandera and then 470 to Utopia. It's about an 80-mile drive. Please allow 1.5 to 2 hours.
Terrain: Rolling to Hilly
