Texas Heritage Trails Program
There are 10 trails in the Texas Heritage Trails Program (THTP) which is part of the Texas Historical Commission’s (THC) award-winning heritage tourism initiative. The THTP is based around 10 scenic driving trails created in 1968 by Gov. John Connally and the Texas Highway Department (now the Texas Department of Transportation) as a marketing tool. Spirit of Texas Winery is located in the Texas Forts Trail region.
Authentic Texas Magazine is dedicated to Texas heritage and culture, preservation efforts, and travel and supports the mission and programs of the nationally award-winning Texas Heritage Trails Program.
