Great road. I was shocked and surprised at the ruggedness and scenery of this area just west of Ft. Worth.
The Palo Pinto area is beautiful. Good to very good pavement.
Very rural. You can putt along or attack this route and enjoy it either way.
This road makes a great start to longer trips heading north or west from the F.W. area.
Ditto on La Fiesta in Cleburne.

Riding north of 180 is scenic, but mostly straight with sweepers.
Surface is generally good.
Be mindful of gas, as there are long stretches out here without any stations.

Nice ride. Big detour shortly after Granbury, but the detour is well marked.
Great breakfast at Pams Too in Acton.
My wife enjoyed the shops in Granbury.
The road gets a bit boring after US 180 but south of US 180 the road and scenery is great.
Something for everyone and a nice day trip from Ft Worth.

The resurfacing of FM 4 is now complete.
Ride and have fun, just watch out for the trucks.

This road is fast returning to its former fun.
The stretch near Cleburne is being resurfaced and should be complete in the near future.
Just watch out for the trucks.

Great road, but as you near Cleburne, WATCH OUT.
Road surface becomes very poor due to truck damage.

Not far from PK lake and takes you by Palo Pinto Lake, this road is very scenic with a green vally to the west and a Rock cliff on the east, not to metion a creek that meanders throuh the area.

I had so much fun on the stretch between Palo Pinto and Santo, I had to ride it three times.
I found good food at the Palo Pinto Cafe too.

Left Denton to Cleburn, lunch at La Feista off 174 in Cleburn (very good mexican food buffet), then FM 4 to Jacksboro.
Nice sweeping turns, good twisty's and good views.
Then back to Denton via 380. Total 285 miles. Was a very good ride.

This road starting out just out side of Jacksboro heading south or out of Palo Pinto heading north is one of the nicest curving and scenic roads in this area.
You cross the Brazos River, on a well paved and winding road.
The surrounding countryside is actually hilly, a rare site in this area, all coupled with scenic vistas from the hills you top down to the flat areas of the valleys.
There are a couple of different routes to take all around this area to where you end up at Possum Kingdom Lake.
A very nice area and one of my favorite areas to ride!

A challenging twisty ride with four exit points to return to Fort Worth.
