The Original Texas Star Trail from Fredericksburg is an annual central Texas week-long trail riding event usually starting around the first weekend of March of each year. The ride traverses and covers a route used by most of the former settlers in the Texas hill country around the Fredericksburg, Texas area when they needed to go to the Texas Capital in Austin. Starting in the historic German community of Fredericksburg and traveling through the most picturesque part and the highest elevation of the Texas hill country. The trail actually covers areas that still have some of the original wagon tracks left by wagons of former travelers. The ride is a full reenactment of an authentic wagon train that came to this area in the days of its initial settlement, crossing some ranches that are still owned by their original families that settled them.
Monday, March 9, 2015 we will be camping on the LBJ Ranch with the tour and an afternoon ranch ride. We will be at The Blanco County Museum and Buggy Barn on 281hwy north side of town again on Wednesday March 11, 2015. This campsite is the famous Dennis and Kelly Moore’s Carriage Ranch there in downtown Blanco. The Ranch houses a Carriage and Buggy Museum that is second to none for authentic Buggies, StageCoaches, buckboards and other movie paraphernalia. Also a recently completed Military exhibition type museum. A lot to see that night.
