Great driving roads in your neck of the woods?

I searched the forum and came up empty. So here's a thread that I hope catches on. The goal of this topic is to post your favorite driving roads. There should be some guidelines and rules to try and keep the thread on course. Hopefully this will take off and this thread can be stickied!

DO post some great driving roads in your area complete with the GPS location or directions from a major city.
DO post a street view screenshot from Google maps.
DO post youtube or personal videos if you have it!
DO post your personal experiences on the road (minus any stories about speeding, cops and or racing).
DO NOT post about any illegal activities such as speeding.

I'll start it off:
Ranch Road 377 in Texas just outside of Boerne.



Additional info:
-Scout the road first for loose gravel and dirt that may have washed on the road during a rain storm.
-The road is a hilly winding road with plenty of medium and fast corners and a couple of surprises.

Well, Austin has Lime Creek which is a nice road, in TX.

There really isn't any in Houston that I have found, but the HOV is fun to drive on.

Now if you are talking about anywhere that I have been ... I enjoy the Colorado drive from Denver to Rifle. That is a fun 3 hour drive. Twisties in the Mountains. All the way.

Can you get some map/GPS info for those who do not know what/where Lime Creek is? I'd like to have this thread to be an archive of these driving roads complete with maps, pictures/videos and locations/directions to them for those who would need to travel. :D

That would be something for JMiller and the guys in Austin to get for ya.

And I bet if you search for the First Texas Round Up, you will find the map and tons of pics and video of Lime Creek.

This is where I drive for fun. It has a lot of low and high speed corners. (bear with me here, this is the first time Ive put pictures on a post. hope it works.)

This is just outside of Navasota Tx, close to Collegestation and about 70 ish miles from Houston.



Here are some pics of it from google.







Its nothing special, just fun if you like cornering. I wish the road was longer.

Is the FM 1489 the road in question? If so it looks like fun!
