Twisted Sisters 100-Mile Loop | Bandera, TX

Want to ride through the wild west? While you may be able to find yourself a horse at the local stables, you might be looking for something with a bit more kick. Renting or buying a motorcycle for a classic Texas joy ride is the most adrenaline-inducing experience you'll find in the Lone Star State. And no road is more suited for motorcycle riders than Twisted Sisters 100-Mile Loop.

Why Twisted Sisters?

People typically picture motorcycle trails as straightaways with primarily desert scenery. But Twisted Sisters takes these preconceived notions and throws them to the side of the highway. The renowned road is considered one of the most difficult motorcycle trails in the country, and for good reason.

Cliffside panoramas and steep drop-offs will be fairly common throughout your ride. As the road's name implies, the roads twist and turn often, which is something most motorcycle enthusiasts won't be used to. The three sections of exceptionally winding roads are referred to as the "three twisted sisters.' While beginning riders may want to build up their skills before attempting Twisted Sisters, expert riders will be elated to drive on a beautiful, yet complicated, path.

The map depicts the trail in its entirety, and fortunately for our guests, Bandera Crossing RV Park is connected to the trail in between Medina and Leakey. Perfect if you just want to get on the road immediately!

Leakey, Camp Wood, Barksdale, and Medina are all great pit stops if you are hungry, thirsty, or tired! Most of the businesses on the trail are biker-friendly.

What to Bring

While you're on your metal steed, you are obviously going to want to travel light. But some motorcyclists suggest bringing a few extra things for emergencies and for convenience. Since you don't want to be stuck in a bad place without any preparations, here are a few things you should definitely have on you as you prepare for the ride.

First Aid
Whenever you are going somewhere potentially dangerous, it is important to have some kind of first aid kit on hand. Bandages, alcohol for cleaning, tweezers, safety pins, an emergency blanket, and some kind of cooling pack should be the basis for your kit.

Survival Kit
While it is unlikely you'll get lost on the trail, you should still bring survival supplies as a precaution. Have some drinking water and snacks on hand. A filtered straw can be useful when out in nature for extended periods of time. A lighter or fire starting equipment should be added to the kit as well.

Full Gas Tank
Nothing is more embarrassing and frustrating than hitting empty in the middle of nowhere. Do yourself a favor and always evaluate how much gas you have and how much you'll need.
