Texas Brazos Trail

0 miles - Plan for a few hours to enjoy sections or a week to enjoy the region.

The Texas Brazos Trail is an 18-county area of central Texas, which roughly stretches from Waco to College Station to Georgetown. This area of the state is rich in the early history of Texas. Early explorers considered the waters of the Brazos River the lifeline of their travels throughout the region and today the river brings your journey to life. Some of the most beautiful architecture in the state is preserved in the old homes and historic downtown areas of these cities.

Visitors can explore state parks, visit a presidential museum, sample some of Texas' best barbecue, visit wineries, enjoy one of the many local festivals and events, or find that perfect gift in downtown shopping districts.
