We’re back with another super road that’s close enough to the DFW MetroPlex for a day trip. FM 4 (no relation whatsoever to Park Road 4, BTW), between Granbury and Jacksboro, is a beautiful twisty road that zig-zags along among gently rolling hills and wooded stream crossings. Very nice. Some people refer to this area as the “North Texas Hill Country.” If you go, you’ll see why.

Just GO!
