Safe route from Houston to Lake Somerville

I'm planning on riding from Houston to Lake Somerville in October. I don't want to ride along Highway 290. Is there a better route?

I would suggest the following:
  1. Start from Katy Mills Mall in Katy
  2. Take Hwy 90 west
  3. Right onto 359 heading North
  4. Left onto 529 heading West
  5. At Bellville take 36 heading North
  6. Continue on 36 through Brenham until you reach Somerville
If you want to avoid riding through Brenham and on 36, you could take the following slightly longer route instead:
  1. Start from Katy Mills Mall in Katy
  2. Take Hwy 90 west
  3. Right onto 359 heading North
  4. Left onto 529 heading West
  5. Stay on 529/36 through Bellville
  6. Left onto 159 heading West
  7. Right onto 2502 heading Northwest
  8. Right onto 390 heading Northeast, go through Burton
  9. Left onto 36 heading North to Somerville
390 through Burton to 36 is beautiful. Good Luck
