General Information

Description - The state scenic roads in Texas are called Texas Travel Trails. Texas offers ten such Trails designated by the state but no nationally designated byways.

Attractions -

The Texas Forest Trail, follows the well-forested route of Texas where Indians had lived long before the first explorers investigated the continent. Travel the Texas Plains Trail to step back into Texas` agricultural area and see miles of golden stalked fields as far as the eye can see. These are two examples of the byways in Texas.

Recreation - Byways provide access to numerous cultural, historical, natural, recreational and scenic sites. Some of the most popular activities along the byways include hiking, camping, picnicking, biking, fishing, photographing scenery, viewing historic sites and of course scenic driving.

Climate - Texas is a huge state with varying climates but generally the climate could be said to be primarily hot and humid in the summer months and mild to cool in the winter. Western Texas receives very little rainfall with the exception of the higher elevations. This is the driest area of the state having a relative humidity of 50 percent and an annual rainfall average of eight inches.

Location - Byways travel through scenic and historic areas throughout the state. Maps are available on the individual byway pages.
