The 1.7 mile Cactus Capital Hiking Trail winds around the hills northwest of Sanderson to give a magnificent bird’s-eye view of our little valley. The trail begins with a kiosk and visitor information at the corner of 1st and Mansfield Street. Following a white line painted on the street, the entrance to the trail proper is at School and Mansfield, at the foot of Old Baldy, also humorously known as Hominy Hill. Climbing up from the valley floor one is afforded a spectacular view of Sanderson and the Terrell County Eagle Stadium. Then the trail descends to the Eagle track field, crosses the canyon and back up to the mountain top for another spectacular view. The trail ends at the foot of Javelina Hill just off Wilson and Pine. Along the way, small signs identify the unique flora found in our county. Park benches are spotted at intervals for those needing a breather. Hikers must bring water with them...there is no water on the trail. Public restrooms may be found at the Terrell County Courthouse or the Terrell County Visitor Center at 2nd and Oak (Hwy. 90.)

The trail was provided as part of a parks improvement program funded in part by a $180,000 matching grant from the Texas Department of Parks and Wildlife and by a half-cent venue tax approved by Terrell County voters in 2000. Crews from American YouthWorks of Austin, an AmeriCorps program for youths and young adults, created the trail in 2007.
