A paved 13-mile route through the Lost Pines of Texas. This short drive passes through a unique area in Central Texas heavily wooded with loblolly pines, far to the west of their normal range. Because of the isolated, seemingly misplaced pines, the hilly area near Bastrop and Smithville is known as the Lost Pines.
Special attractions: Bastrop State Park, Buescher State Park, thick pine forest, hiking, camping, cycling. This eTrail is a complete description of a scenic drive with a route map and information on the best travel seasons, interesting sites, recreation opportunities, camping locations, and much more.
