Quanah Parker Trail is a road trip guide compiled for the

Texas Plains Trail Region, a 52-county area that takes in  both the Panhandle and the Plains of Texas. Every star on every road trip map represents a place with a real or legendary connection to

the famous chief, the Comanche or other Plains Indians.

Make your own trail.

Drive it if you can. Surf it if you can’t.


Something to keep in mind:

The story of Quanah Parker,

son of Comanche warrior Peta Nocona and

White captive-turned-Comanche Cynthia Ann Parker,

stretches far beyond this site in geographical scope and

in historical and cultural significance.

More meaningful than the miles Quanah traveled

is the distance he covered between disparate cultures

and the transition he made between different ages

in the history of the American West.

For better or worse, Quanah led his people

into the 20th Century.
