Texas Pecos Trail Region Attractions
The Texas Pecos Trail Region is a part of the Lone Star State that stretches from Eagle Pass north to Midland and Odessa, encompassing 22 counties and including such towns as Del Rio, Fort Stockton, and Sheffield. Home to scenic rivers and the rough canyons and mountains of the Chihuahuan Desert, the region is a great place to experience the great outdoors. Given its one-of-a-kind cultural history and heritage, it’s also where you want to go to experience Texas’ frontier history.

Monahans Sandhills State Park
Stand among the rolling sand dunes and, for a moment, you might start to think you’ve been transported to a desert on the other side of the world. Don’t worry, you’re still in far West Texas. Along with being a unique landmark here in the Lone Star State, it’s an excellent place to enjoy the outdoors. Hiking, horseback riding, and sand dune surfing (toboggans are available for rent) are among the many ways to get outdoors here.
