About the Forts Trail Region
The Forts Trail Region was once the wild frontier where explorers and frontiersmen clashed with the land and Native Americans. Come hear the stories and explore the places where history was made—and make you own memories! Visit a historic site, tour a museum, or check out the local sites, shops, and eateries. The "trail" is a recommended 650-mile driving loop within a 29-county region of Central West Texas. The trail highlights a Spanish presidio and eight historic frontier forts and the communities and attractions that surround them. Take the trail or explore the region!
The Forts Trail Region works with a variety of organizations to promote heritage travel throughout the region.
