To get there, the drive will begin in Cedar Hill and pass through 150 miles of fantastic roads with lots of great vistas, panoramic countrysides, and twisty roads. The mid-point will be Glen Rose where the tour will take a quick break for gas. In addition to Glen Rose, the tour will pass through or near Cleburne State Park, Dinosaur Valley State Park, Fossil Rim Wildlife Center, and Iredell.

After lunch, an optional 150 mile tour will be available for those who cannot get enough of the views and roads in this area of Texas. The afternoon tour will pass through or near Carlton, Dublin, Lipan, and Granbury. For those needing/wanting to get back to the Metroplex quickly, there is a direct route back to the Dallas area.
