If you are looking for a challenge, 337 from Medina to Camp Wood has very steep climbs with tremendous views https://www.crazyguyonabike.com/doc/p...?pic_id=163013

For a decent road surface, light traffic, and gradual climbs, 173 North of Bandera past Ranch Road 2828 and past Camp Verde toward Kerrville, or take a right at Camp Verde (FM 480), or on the return do 2828.

In South Eastern Bandera county/Medina County area is Park Road 37. From the corner of Hwy 46 and 16, take Bump Gate road to left on FM 1283, left on 37 to Hwy 16, left on 16, detour left at Baily Circle, up Timber Creek Rd, and right on Cedar Pass road for a hellish descent and return climb with an outstanding view. Ride along the ridge, backtrack to Hwy 16, then left for the return downhill to Hwy 46.

If you want to avoid climbs, Eastern Bandera county is not for you. 173 North and South, 16 to Medina, 470 West, and 187 between Utopia & Lost Maples Park are the flat roads.

Stop in at the chamber of commerce; last time I was there they had free county maps showing all the paved backroads. And if you're up for some gravel, there's a ton of great riding.
