Hero: Cheeseburger Loop
small-sr Icon
Just a short drive from the hustle and bustle of the Houston metro area, the quiet serenity of a quaint country drive awaits those needing a day trip to escape the city. While a ‘loop,’ most tend to start the Cheeseburger Loop in Montgomery, following the pavement into the Sam Houston National Forest. The route winds its way along numerous forest roads, providing travelers with the beauty of canopied dirt roads barely wide enough to pass. Sections of well-maintained dirt roads connect through short stints of payment, ultimately making their way out of the forest and through private ranch lands of southeast Texas. As the cares of the world drift away, roughly two-thirds along the route, travelers will stumble upon Yankee’s Tavern & Grill when traveling counterclockwise. A tradition of the route has travelers stopping for a cold beverage and a burger before completing the loop and heading back to the cares of the world. Looking to turn this day trip into a weekend getaway? Sam Houston National Forest offers numerous first-come-first-serve campsites. For those living in the Houston metro area, this hidden gem provided the perfect opportunity for beginners and veterans alike to get away and kick up some dirt on the tires!
