I would agree with the Hwy 95 from Bastrop, thru Elgin, thru Taylor, and on the north side of Taylor, left on Hwy 29 thru Burnet. This route means you do not have to travel thru Austin. Now don't get me wrong, you can travel thru Austin on 71 to Oak Hill, then 71 to 281, then north on 281 to Burnet, then left on 29 to Park Road 4. But traffic in Austin is always bad. You might try going one way and returning the other. That will give you a good base for future trips. But being in the Austin area since 1984, I recommend avoiding Austin traffic whenever possible.

Inks Lake State Park is one of the busiest parks in Texas, along with Garner State Park. Highly recommend both. Reservations are suggested. And buy a yearly State Park membership. Save a few dollars and do not have to pay the $2 per person per day fee. Happy Trails.

290 into Austin and then out to Burnett is not the way to go. Lots of traffic. From Bastrop go to Elgin and then Taylor. On the north side of Taylor take 29 to Georgetown and then on to Burnet and on to Inks Lake SP. These are mostly 2 lane roads, but easy to travel. I have been through there numerous times with a large 5er and no problems.

A couple of good BBQ places in Elgin...Pronounced El-gen...rhymes with HEN or a hard G.

Where 29 crosses I-35 in Georgetown, you will have to start up with an incline at that intersection, but no problem with an automatic.

Yeah, but a real eye-opening experience with a 6-speed manual. Been there, done that, got the t-shirt with a previous rig.

Hey Don, while at Inks Lake S.P. look up one of the host...Jay and Stella Coffman. They are old time Texas Boomers that retired and went on the road when he retired. Tell them Howdy.

Also, you got to head down to Marble Falls for a meal (and pie for desert) at the Blue Bonnet Cafe.

Also up the road at Llano is Coopers for BBQ.

Shout if you need more eating places in the area....there is good catfish at a barge just of the dam and river to the south...don't remember the name.

Long Horn Caverns south of Burnett...pronounced Burn-et...accent on the burn.

There was a good museum at the dam. I heard it was closed ????

And if the lake level is high enough, the vanishing River Cruise...NE corner of Buchanan...Pronounced..BUCK-han-an

A nice winery to tour on the west side of the lake up toward Tow...rhymes with cow.

Love the way they pronounce things up there.

Ken
