This makes me want to go ride up there. I’m fortunate that I have miles of gravel roads mixed with a little pavement, probably 80/20. Capable of getting in a 100k ride doing multiple loops and squares. The only scenery we have in south Texas is wind farms. I’d love to get my butt up there, do a little camping and some riding.

How far is this from Houston proper?  And how many miles of gravel are there? Houston has great food, and it's good to know there are nice gravel roads, but boy the rush hour traffic there is bad.

Depends on where you're coming from. The SHNF is around the Huntsville and New Waverly areas but it is huge with many roads and trails. We typically ride from a place called Four Notch Hunter's Camp. You can link up roads for anywhere from 20 miles to 100+. Check out the Houston Gravel Grinders page on Facebook. Lots of rides posted there. You can start at Double Lake, Huntsville State Park, Huntsville, Four Notch, Hardy Bottom, Ranger Station on 1375, Richards, Bedias. You need maps or GPS because there's lots of dead ends and there are very few, if any, places to stop for water or supplies.
