Our Annual BEST IN TEXAS Readers’ Choice Poll included the category for readers/riders to vote for their favorite wildflower road. We complied readers’ responses into a TOP 10 list of the best wildflower roads in Texas—US FM 390 is number 4.

FM 390, also known as La Bahia Scenic Highway is certified and accredited as a scenic road by the State of Texas, so you know it’s going to be special. It is a sweet ride any time of year, but spring brings out its best features.

Due to good soil and ample-ish rains, there’s a significant variety of wildflowers typical to this area that you won’t find in the Hill Country or other points west.
