History of the Tropical Trail Region
Excerpt from the original Texas Tropical Trail (1970) brochure:
“The Texas Tropical Trail is charted through a vast area of coastal plains and fertile croplands, past sparkling Gulf waters and Spanish-style homes on palm-lined avenues. Along 726 miles the Trail bisects busy cities, then returns to a countryside filled with citrus groves, or spans immense, brushy ranchlands. Anywhere the land may be dotted with oil wells, pumping stations and refineries.
