Adventure Cycling Association has mapped a route across the country--the Southern Tier Route--which runs from San Diego, CA to St. Augustine, FL and cyclists taking that route ride right across the Texas Mountain Trail Region--Anthony, El Paso and the Mission Trail communities, Sierra Blanca, Van Horn, Fort Davis, Alpine and Marathon.
This is a photo of the stretch between the Mission Trail communities and Sierra Blanca. The mountains in the distance are in Mexico.

Starting now, through the weekend, we'll be posting views of the Southern Tier route through the Texas Mountain Trail region. We'll also be in Wichita Falls at the Hotter N Hell 100, marketing the region to cyclists...if you're going to the event, visit us at our booth and say hello!
