In this episode of the Bikes or Death podcast, host Patrick Farnsworth gets a private tour of the Texas Hill Country Overnighter with its creator, Maxwell Johnston. “When I got into bikepacking I quickly learned that the lack of Public Lands in Texas creates a barrier to accessing the outdoors via bike because 97% of Texas is privately held land,” explains Patrick. “The genius of Maxwell’s route is that he used private campgrounds as a way to string together some of the best gravel roads in the Hill Country.” Check out the episode below, and scroll down for more info on the route.
The state of Texas has so much beauty to offer, but there’s something uniquely captivating about the Texas Hill Country. Located 90 miles west of Austin, this overnighter takes you through the rolling hills of limestone and granite, past prickly pear cactus and fields of livestock. Riders can camp under the stars on the Llano River and test their luck with some of the state’s best fly-fishing spots. Find the full route guide here.
