Back Road to the Pig Trail

Most Texas riders who come to the Ozarks either know about the Pig Trail or soon will. Many visitors assume that all of AR Hwy. 23 is the Pig Trail, but local riders understand that the designation is actually a 24-mile stretch of AR Hwy. 23, from Ozark north to the junction with AR Hwy. 16 at Brashears, Arkansas. The Pig Trail earned its moniker when it was a popular (though winding to the extreme)…

Ride to Swim

Texans know that we have some of the best year-round riding to be found anywhere, with our miles of two-lane highways packed with exciting turns and stunning vistas. We also know that it gets hot out there in the summer, so we’re offering you a timely list of some great spots across the state where you can strip off the leathers and take a leap—or a cannonball, or a belly fl op, just not a highside—into cool water after your long, hot…

Delightfully Dazed

Romantics at heart still swoon over Hope Floats (1998), shot in equally romantic Smithville. Sandra Bullock and Harry Connick, Jr.—yeah, that was a cuddle movie!

Scenes for the ultimate Texas football movie Friday Night Lights (2004) were shot in Elgin, at the stadium in the Austin suburb of…

Riding with the Raven

The centerpiece of this scenic and historic ride is the town of Huntsville. Huntsville proudly carries the mantle of Samuel Houston. Sam Houston commanded the Texas army as they fought for independence from Mexico, was President of the Republic of Texas, represented the state in the U.S. Senate, and served as Governor of Texas. His family spent 16 years in Huntsville, and it is where he died and is buried. Located in the Piney Woods—and in close proximity to Houston and Bryan/College…

Coastal Breeze

Get into that Jimmy Buffett frame-of-mind on this ride along the Texas Gulf Coast. There are several historic structures in the small ranching town of Refugio. Our Lady of Refuge Catholic Church, completed in 1901, is on the site where a two-hundred-year old mission once stood. Stretch your legs, visit with anglers, and do some nature study at Copano Bay State Fishing Pier and Goose Island State Park. Rockport has become an important arts destination in the state and celebrates several events…
