Scenic Drives – Although several are scenic, one of most impressive is U.S. 377 southwest as it travels along the South Llano River. An exceptional overlook is about 22 miles south at a highway rest area. The drives to Kerrville (52 miles) and Fredericksburg (61 miles) are awesome.

The South Llano River State Park is a 507-acre wooded park that lies along the winding South Llano River. Abundant wildlife include white-tailed deer, wood ducks, fox squirrels, rock squirrels, javelina, and the Rio Grande turkey.
