Austin area spots for gravel grinding?

I'd like to go do some of the Hill Country Hundy or Castell Grind route today.

CanI just park near Castelle General Store and leave my car there?

CanI park near downtown Llano and ride HHH from there?

I have a few ~40 mile loops out of Bastrop, Lockhart, McDade and Castell built up on my strava. Was going to do one today but really don’t have 5-6 hours for a bike trip. May get one in Wednesday to kick off 2020 gravel style.

Both - what did you end up riding?

We drove to Llano and headed south on Hwy 114. We followed a route I found on Ride With GPS but the first 12 miles were paved roads. Then some dirt, then we realized we had bitten off more than we could chew and headed straight back to Llano on Hwy 16. Better planning next time!

28+ miles, 1000 feet of climbing. Not bad at all for her second ride on this new bike.
