Quanah Parker Trail is a road trip guide compiled for the Texas Plains Trail Region, a 52-county heritage tourism region 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 legendry connection to the famous chief, the Comanche or other Plains Indians. Crosbyton was one of the first communities to have an arrow installed to mark the QPT.
The main reason for developing this Quanah Parker Trail, is not to let (Comanche history) die and just fade away like so much of our history in the Texas Panhandle has. The arrow sculptures link cities and counties with a connection to the famous Comanche chief who roamed the Panhandle and South Plains and fought commercial buffalo hunters and other settlers until finally surrendering and being relocated to a reservation in 1875.
