Seldom Driven: Hwy 118 looking south
Looking south from the exact spot as yesterday's post on Hwy 118, this is one of the seldom driven portions of the original driving route, the Texas Mountain Trail. Taken between Kent (the I-10 turnoff) and the scenic loop around Fort Davis, this stretch of highway provides scenic vistas of spectacular ranchland.
For more about the history of our program and the development of the circa 1968 driving routes around the state of Texas, click here. Though there is a clearly defined driving route from that era, our program has developed to serve the entire six-county region from Brewster County (which has Big Bend National Park) to El Paso County and the New Mexico state line.
