About the Lakes Trail Region
The Texas Lakes Trail is a 31-county region in North Central Texas that features world renowned museums, historic downtowns, and western culture.

There are museums, brochures, and markers to help tell the stories of the early travelers. The cattle trails have definitely left their mark on this region from the countryside to the city. Communities are proud of their western heritage and you can see it on display in the most urbane areas of the region. When you visit the Lakes Trail, you will have an authentic Texas experience accompanied by hospitality that can’t be beat.
