Leaky or Rio Frio Area Rides?

In a couple weeks I will bve taking a vacation up to River Bluff Cabins in Leakey/Rio Frio area and I need some help with some rides or ride maps in the area. I am looking for a few hills but mostly looking for some really cool descents. My base of operation will be the River Bluff Cabins near Leaky so any help with maps or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I was at Garner State park this past weekend. I just glanced at the above list of rides and they all look great. I didn't bring my bike but thought it would be a great place to ride. FWIW, HWY 83 is a nicely paved road with a big rideable shoulder. You could leave your cabin, head to Concan, turn around head to Leakey, and then rinse and repeat. Plenty of hills along this route. I also like the "Texas River Reigin Classic Route" from above. That looks like it will be right there where you are staying and a good route. Also, it tends to flatten out as you travel further south past Concan.

I try to go to the area at least twice per year and I have ridden all of the routes shown on the Map My Ride link. They are all scenic, beautiful, and challenging. We usually come to Leakey for three days at a time and that gives us a chance to ride several routes. On the longer rides, my favorites are the Leakey to Bandera loop and the "Three Twisted Sisters" loop north and west of Leakey. The "Three Twisted Sisters" loop features RR 335, 336, and 337, plus TX 41. Last year, over Labor Day weekend, we cycled along the Ranch and County Roads that run south from Leakey along the Frio River to Concan and then we returned northward on US 83 and that was a nice shorter and flatter ride. This ride has multiple crossings of the Frio River.
