TEXAS - The Texas Forts Trail Region is now offering a “passport,” which is a booklet of information on the various forts along the trail, and a place to get a stamp. From "Old Yeller" to "Lonesome Dove," visit the Region where Western Classics have their roots!

The Passport is available at no charge. Request your Passport or pick one up at any of the featured sites listed below.

Visitors are welcome to use the passport to make a reconnaissance through the Texas Forts Trail Region, a place that was once the wild frontier where explorers and frontiersmen clashed with the land and Native Americans.
