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. Anchored by the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex, the region has the best of both worlds; rural and urban. As you travel the roadways throughout the region, you will be following the paths others have traveled throughout history. Many of the roadways follow historic trails and early highways such as the Bankhead Highway, Chisholm Trail, Butterfield Trail, Shawnee Trail, and the Great Western Trail. 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.
The Lakes Trail Region works with a variety of organizations to promote heritage travel throughout the region.
