The 92-acre Comanche Lookout Park has a wealth of history. The Loop Trail has been combined with the Comanche Lookout Tower Trail to explore the most interesting sections of the park. The four-story medieval-style stone tower sitting on top of the 1,340-foot-high hill is the high point of the hike. Portions of the paved trail are wheelchair and stroller accessible. Spend some time at the pavilion reading about the park history. This area was used by the Apache and Comanche Indians during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Cibolo Creek attracted many animals and furnished fertile hunting grounds for the Indians. One of the routes of El Camino Real, the Spanish Royal Road going from San Antonio to Bastrop, went past the hill. Remnants of some of these trails form part of Nacogdoches Road.
