The route is a rare gem as it is a long distance bikepacking route from Coahoma, TX to Fredericksburg, TX. Texas is known for it's private land and that is what makes this ride so unique as it utilizes public camping areas and county roads to connect over 300 miles of historic riding.
These miles may not be exact but are close. You will find water along the route after Colorado City about 1/3 to 1/2 way to Oak Creek lake. Fill up! They are horse troughs and water hoses. Fill up at least once and use a filter. We filtered water at most places that had a hydrant, even at the Post Office in Maryneal.
