Northeast Texas Trail

19 communities in northeast Texas have joined efforts to link existing rail trails and create one 132-mile long trail along the Red River Valley from Farmersville to New Boston. According to the Rails-to-Trails Conservancy Magazine [Spring/Summer Edition 2012, p. 4], “the route passes through grasslands, fertile river bottom lands and piney woods as it stretches from town to town, and it includes unique features such as masonry railroad bridges and colorful 19th century railroad depots.”
