Chalk Mountain (12 miles west of Glen Rose)

Driving along HWY 67, west of Glen Rose is an impressive outcropping of rock known as Chalk Mountain.

A roadside park gives a beautiful panorama of the countryside.  Although the town of Chalk Mountain never exceeded 100 people, it’s now considered a GHOST TOWN.  There are only a few remains of buildings, and the Chalk Mountain Cemetery, with a nice little chapel.

The Chalk Mountain Wildlife Association offers bird tours Feb. – July, to view the endangered golden cheeked warbler and the black capped vireo.  Click HERE to visit their website.

Keep Having Fun in the Texas Sun!
